Why I'm Skipping the Presidential Press Conference
Hi there from my not secret and not at all glamorous retreat from the world of politics.
No, I'm haven't jetted off to an idyllic mountain retreat but I am on a retreat of sorts right here in my own home.
So tonight I'm skipping the President's press conference. I'm also taking a pass on writing one of those "first 100 days" or "grade The President" posts..
I'll just read the speech transcript and a few of my favorite bloggers' recaps tomorrow.
As for me, I'm going to catch up on my reading and continue to wonder how much it will mean if the US economy recovers if its soul is lost over torture and spying.
Talk to you soon.
