Obama picked up over a dozen books, but Knoller noticed something glaringly absent from the list provided by the White House.

Funny ’cause it’s oh-so-true! Obama can always borrow “Web Sites for Dummies” from his pal Kathleen Sebelius, but he’s got other books to get to first.

Business trip: President to designate national monument between fundraisers

http://twitter.com/#!/markknoller/status/520383618238406656

CBS News’ Mark Knoller reports that President Obama will take a brief break from fundraising in California Friday in order to designate 346,000 acres of the San Gabriel Mountains as a national monument.

@markknoller A national monument to Obama in the San Gabriel Mountains?

— Paula Bolyard (@pbolyard) October 10, 2014

Possibly. Hey, wouldn’t this official action make at least part of this trip reimbursable by taxpayers?

@markknoller @mrzmazz .His lame excuse to charge this fundraising trip off as official business.

— 4chunat1 (@4chunat1) October 10, 2014

@markknoller Now taxpayers can pay for all expenses since he is going to visit national park. DNC shld pay for his fundraising expenses

That fact doesn’t seem to have slipped past Knoller, either.

The monument designation is political outreach to conservationists and also offsets some of the DNC's political costs of his trip.

@markknoller Not necessarily in that order

@markknoller The latter reason is the ONLY reason he did it, Mark. You should be journalist enough to report it as such. @HarrietBaldwin

Well, it’s pretty.

Obama ‘waves off’ Iraq question for laser-like focus on robotic giraffe

During the “White House Maker Faire” today, President Obama was singularly focused on a bio diesel car, and something else:

Wait, what?

No word yet if Obama reminded the maker of robo-giraffe that he “didn’t build that”:

Well, it’s not like there’s anything else going on in the world, right?

@markknoller MT: "BO waves off Iraq Q…he's focused on the Maker Faire projects"
Whoa, stop the world! One thing at a time.

If there’s ever a sitcom about the Obama administration, “One Thing at a Time” would be a good title.
