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.

‘Never his fault!’ Can you guess who WH blames for Obama’s missing remarks?

In Chicago last night for a DNC fundraiser, President Obama told his audience what happened when he went back to his pre-White-House pad:

President Barack Obama had a chance to visit his house in Chicago, Illinois when he was in the city for a some campaign appearances on Monday and he was apparently greeted by a stack of “unpaid bills.”

“One of the nice things about being home is actually that it’s a little bit like a time capsule. Because Michelle and I and the kids, we left so quickly that there’s still junk on my desk, including some unpaid bills,” Obama said. “I think eventually they got paid — but they’re sort of stacked up. And messages, newspapers and all kinds of stuff.”

Obama’s comment about the “unpaid bills” was subsequently edited out of a copy of the speech distributed by the White House. However, the full quote was preserved by press pool reporters who covered the event. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider on Tuesday asking about the discrepancy.

Well, eventually the White House did respond to the inquiries — with this:

There’s only one way the White House’s explanation can possibly be true:

Update:

It gets even better:
