Presidential motorcade fender bender

Washington (CNN) - Just because you're the commander in chief doesn't mean you're immune to those everyday traffic woes. A U.S. Park Police motorcycle, which was part of the presidential motorcade security, appeared to rear-end a small minibus Monday morning as President and Mrs. Obama returned to the White House from a teacher visit at their daughter Sasha's school in suburban Maryland.

The press pool reporter said it was a small, black mini bus. The Secret Service told CNN no one was hurt in the minor accident and that the motorcade zipped past the fender bender.

    Why is this news? Here's something CNN should be reporting:

    On March 1 on The O'Reilly Factor on Fox, Bill O'Reilly showed, as a backdrop to discussing the protests in Wisconsin, footage of a rowdy protest scene in which mounted police had to intervene between protesters. The message was clear: Union protesters in Wisconsin were getting out of hand!

    On closer inspection, PALM TREES were spotted in the background of the video. PALM TREES? Just what part of Wisconsin was this?

    Once again, Fox and its flunkies lied to further their political agenda. So much for reporting the "news" in a "fair and balanced" way.

    Why anyone would ever watch – let alone believe – this pack of pathological liars is beyond me...

    When Bush was in office, gas hit $4 per gallon. Obama is now in office, and gas has hit $4 per gallon.

    Neither man was responsible for the price spike. Yet Bush was crucified about it on a daily basis, and there's been eerie quiet on the topic now that Obama's in office.

    What's changed????
