Today, I covered the Easter Egg Roll at the White House – after sending my appropriate credentialing info about 2 weeks ago for this, I arrived around 8am. Of course, Obama’s press office somehow managed to not submit my info to Secret Service. So after waiting in the long line, I had to call the press office and re-send them my vitals from my phone. So I did that, and waited… and waited… and waited…
At about 8:50, I tried again to gain access — still Secret Service did not have my info. At this point, media pre-set was at 8:45 so I missed that. Called the Press Office again, and had to send the e-mail with vitals again, and wait some more.
Come 9:30, I finally was able to get in – and considering final call was 9:30, I was worried I’d miss the entire event! Luckily, I got in — but am not a fan of the disorganization seen in the Obama Administration’s Press office.
So after writing all of that, I realize that it sounds like the “creeper” I mentioned in the title of this blog sounds like it is referencing me. It was not. I intended the “Creeper” title to refer to the scary looking Easter Bunny that was roaming around this event! Something about an adult in a bunny outfit that seems a little creepy to me — and I don’t like the way he is looking at President Obama!
