Afternoon West Wing wrap-up
Collette Fraley, a history teacher at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Va., changed careers about a decade ago, and her president is grateful.
"Before she was teaching, she was a journalist," Obama said Monday in a visit to the school, where he was joined by Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who was in town for a state visit. "So she decided to make a change and get into something useful."
Laughing at his latest jab at reporters, Obama added, "I couldn't resist. I couldn't resist."
Here's a look at the rest of the day for President Obama, when he wasn't mocking journalists:
The White House again took on Libya's Moammar Gaddafi.
The administration conceded it is having trouble fulfilling Obama's pledge on closing the military prison at Guantanamo Bay.
Obama sang "Happy Birthday" to Fraley.
Spokesman Jay Carney seemed to walk back the idea that the administration would tap the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to reduce oil prices.
