Approaches Oval Office window instead of door...

It looks like President Obama hasn`t gotten acquainted to his White House surroundings. On the way back to the Oval Office Tuesday, the President approached a paned window, instead of the actual door -- located a few feet to his right, according to Daily News.

Doors didn`t open automatically for Obama’s predecessor either. While making a hasty exit from a 2005 press conference in Beijing, former President George W. Bush tugged on the handles of a door, only to find it locked.

Bush laughed off the blunder, but the pictures still live on as part of Bush`s lame duck legacy. However, there was little note taken of Obama`s rookie mistake.

Obama, who was returning from meeting with Congressional leaders, may have been distracted by Republicans` icy reception to his $825 billion stimulus package, which is poised to pass on Wednesday even without a groundswell of Republican support.
