ANOTHER story written by someone who DIDN'T ATTEND but looked at pictures taken from the event!

Strangely enough, all of the outlets are rather quiet considering this is the first time Obama has been here as President of the USA. In the past that would have counted for something. I guess it is no big deal anymore?
