When good ole earthy Harry Truman was president a friend of the First Family overheard the president asking mid-western farmers at a White House cocktail party how much they had to pay for their manure these days. The friend, a prim and proper woman, darted over to the First Lady and said, “Really, Bess. He’s president of the United States. Can’t you teach him how to say ‘fertilizer’?” “Don’t make trouble,” replied Bess Truman. “It took me thirty-five years to get him up to ‘manure’!” Writer-talk host LOWELL PONTE helps Barry figure out how long it took President Obama to say “terrorist” in that same White House as he visits with Sara and Barry this evening.
