Obama Teases Press: Dog's Arrival Is 'Top Secret'
By Garance Franke-Ruta
Following President Obama's statement on the economy today, the big issues gave way to a small story whose reassuring mundanity in these turbulent times has made it loom ever larger.
"When is the dog coming?" a reporter called out to Obama, who had finished his formal remarks.
"Oh, man, now, that's top secret," the president teased the press, according to the White House transcript of the exchange, generating laughter. "That's top secret."
"Exactly!" said a reporter.
"Oh, no, no, this is tightening up. Any of you going to be at the Easter Egg Roll?" asked the president.
"Oh, yes," came the reply.
"That's big," Obama said, again provoking laughter. "That's big. So we look forward to seeing you on Monday. Thanks, guys."
