Oval Office Doors Locked on Obama

At least he didn't have to break in through his kitchen window.

After returning early from his five-day trip to Latin America, President Obama found a set of doors to the Oval Office locked on him Wednesday afternoon. He had just stepped off Marine One with his wife and daughters, who walked into the residence as he made his way alone to the Oval Office. But, apparently, the staff wasn't notified that Obama was coming, CNN reported, and he walked right up to a set of locked doors. (Video below.)

Without missing a beat, Obama moved along to another entrance.

 

It's not the first time Obama -- or a President -- has had door trouble. Shortly after taking office in January 2009, Obama mistook an Oval Office window for a door. And, in 2005, President Bush famously struggled with a set of locked doors after a Beijing news conference.
