Presidential Seal Falls As Fast As President Obama’s Poll Numbers

Bookmark and Share     You just can’t create better symbolism than this,  but amid a midterm election season that is about see Democrats drop like flies and is seeing faith in President Obama and his policies drop like a ton of bricks, while delivering a speech at the Carnegie Mellon Auditorium in Washington for Fortune magazine’s “Most Powerful Women Summit” , the Great Seal of the President of the United States which adorns every podium that all Presidents speak from, fell off and crashed to the ground in a raucous clatter.  

For his part, President Obama did handle the situation quite well, especially given how there were no words on his teleprompter to dictate to him how to handle the impromptu interruption.  As the Great Seal fell off in mid sentence, President Obama  uttered an “oops” as he leaned over, looked on the ground at the fallen seal and stated, “That’s alright.  All of you know who I am”.  The President then quipped about how although it was alright, he was sure someone on staff was sweating bullets over the mishap.

The incident though brings to mind the often touted Murphy’s Law which describes the 2010 midterms for Democrats perfectly as it claims that anything that can possibly go wrong, does.
