Tuesday was one of those days for President Barack Obama. Not only did he have to deal with the headaches created by the rogue Gen. Stanley McChrystal but a federal judge stopped cold the administration's moratorium on deepwater oil drilling.

So what else could happen? Well a house fly (or is it a White House fly) could buzz the president even eventually landing on his upper lip during an East Room event.

This fly must've not heard about what happened to the last one with the audacity (pun intended) to buzz the president in front of the cameras.

The way things are going, the Secret Service may need to invest in some fly swatters.
