A short time earlier from the Oval Office, Obama had done what his aides had been doing for days: lowering expectations.
"I noticed this has been called the 'Beer Summit.' It's a clever term, but this is not a summit, guys," Obama told reporters. "This is three folks having a drink at the end of the day."
THREE folks. So Biden was a new, fourth wheel. You don't suppose that at the last moment, some adviser said: "wait! We can't have the white guy outnumbered 2:1. Get Biden—just make sure he can't be heard on camera."
Will the MSM ask when Biden was added to the guest list and why PBO spoke of "three folks"?
