Obama jokes he just wants to take a walk incognito

WASHINGTON (AP) - September 30, 2011

All he wants to do, the president says, is take a walk.

But a day after Mrs. Obama was photographed shopping incognito at a suburban Target, the president told syndicated radio host Michael Smerconish Friday that as the first lady reminds him, "Nothing I do is undercover."

Obama says his wife is embarrassed to go out with him because of his long motorcade, which he joked includes a dog sled and a caboose.

But he says he's glad the first lady is able to sneak out, "because one thing she loves to do is shop at Target."
