Politico's story on Republicans and taxes contains this nugget about President Obama.
House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), the third-ranking House Republican, told us about an exchange he had with Obama at Saturday night’s white-tie Gridiron dinner. During a break in the program, McCarthy saw an empty chair next to Obama and decided to seize the chance. Surprised Obama wasn’t working the room, and thinking the president really is a loner, McCarthy walked up to the head table. He found the president was reading his BlackBerry.
It's a party. Get your nose out of your electronic toys and talk to somebody - anybody.
The blackberry can wait for the ride home.
You'll learn more from real people.
