This Week In Pool Reports

In this week’s episode, President Bush tries his hand as an artist, weird book choices in NW and President Richard Nixon gets egged.

  • “The two men sat on straight-backed chairs in front of the fireplace, and the mood in the room was warm, even without a fire. POTUS in striped shirt and red tie, clasped his hands throughout the remarks, exchanged diplomatic eye contact and kept his legs casually and comfortably crossed.” — Caroline Daniel, Financial Times

  • “After the remarks, Ban must either have been so speedily dispatched after the pool was ushered out, or he must have jogged through the White House because within seconds of the pool arriving outside the Brady briefing room, he was quietly holding forth at the stake-out,optimistically using the word ‘strong’ three times to describe the relationship between the UN and the US.” — Daniel

  • “Before he spoke Warner told a story about being a young advance man for VP Nixon during a visit to Michigan where some rowdy youngsters egged Nixon. Warner described how then-Rep. Ford helped him clean the egg off of Nixon and how Ford later consoled the despondent young Warner, telling him it would not be the end of his career.” — Jim Rutenberg, New York Times

  • “POTUS and FLOTUS had signed the books that POTUS handed to school Principal Barbara Childs as gifts to the school library. The books were: ‘An American Plague’ by Jim Murphy, about the yellow fever outbreak of 1793; and ‘Frontier House’ by Simon Shaw, a companion piece to the PBS program on living in a Montana frontier house in the 1880s.” — Anne C. Mulkern, Denver Post

  • “At the high school POTUS walked slowly through a hallway where students and volunteers were painting on a wall, inspirational sayings and scenes of historic DC. Wearing dark pants and a light blue, stripped shirt with the sleeves rolled to the elbows and the collar open, POTUS talked to the painters. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales walked behind, wearing a navy polo shirt. ‘Good to see you. How are you?’ POTUS asked someone the pool couldn’t see. He stopped where volunteers and/or students were painting a picture of the famed Ben’s Chili Bowl restaurant. POTUS took a paintbrush and helped out. ‘Gettin’ the drift of this thing here?’ POTUS asked as he painted. The pool was then ushered out and the president remarked, ‘Sure, now that I’m making progress.’” — Mulkern

  • “Your pool was called off just before 7 a.m., then called back an hour later, then forced to sprint across the south driveway as word came that POTUS was on his way out. The morning drizzle could not deter the president from his Sunday bike ride.” — Sudeep Reddy, Dallas Morning News
