What would the MSM say if President Bush or Senator McCain had made this statement?
He did express curiosity about the filming of a chase scene in “North by Northwest,” Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 classic starring Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint that included a death-defying scramble over Rushmore’s presidential faces.
“How did they get up there in the first place?” he asked ranger Wesley Jensen.
“They didn’t. It was a movie set,” Jensen told him.
“Pretty spiffy, isn’t it,” said the Illinois senator, summing up his overall impressions.
Here’s a YouTube of scenes from North by Northwest. The Rushmore clip begins at about 1:15. Is there anyone other than Obama who thinks this looks real?
