BO: We got “carried away” letting our daughters talk to Access Hollywood

Yesterday’s lead story on this site was the Obamas’ decision to parade their daughters in front of Access Hollywood’s cameras during a family birthday celebration.

On the Today Show this morning, Barack Obama stumbled his way through an ashen-faced acknowledgment that, golly gee, maybe it wasn’t such a good idea and, uh, he’s slow.

Watch and listen carefully:

He’s got no one to blame but himself for this bad judgment call that wasn’t, to borrow Michelle O’s phrase, good for his kids. Yet, Obama makes it seem as though the cameras just magically appeared from nowhere, taking him by surprise. As if the four-part interview were a spur of the moment decision that “suddenly…cropped up.” Horse-hockey you can believe in.

I’ve transcribed the exchange:

LAUER: …some people said wait a minute, the senator is trying to have it both ways. On the one hand, you want to protect your private life. On the other hand, here you are sitting with your two daughters and allowing them to answer questions. Did you make the right call on that?

OBAMA: Uh, you know, I think that we, uh, got carried away in the moment. We were having a birthday party and everybody was laughing, and suddenly this thing cropped up. And, uh, I didn’t catch it quickly enough. And I was surprised by the attention it received as well.

LAUER: Senator, if you had to do it over again?

OBAMA: Yah, I won’t be doing it again and we won’t be doing it again.

A four-part interview that probably entailed hours of set-up, makeup, mic checks, and post-wrap schmoozing…and he “didn’t catch it quickly enough.”

Snort.

On a more serious note, compare and contrast Obama and McCain on Iran’s latest missile tests.
