Get in line, Obama
It's official: Batkid is more popular than President Obama.

If you don't believe us (and we know you do), then look no farther than this today's Chronicle which pointed out that, despite the president's early efforts to meet San Francisco's favorite superhero during his stop in San Francisco today, 5-year-old Miles Scott is too busy.

We're not talking he's too busy dealing with Thomas the Train drama at home. Batkid's schedule is totally booked up with an appearance on Good Morning America where he'll no doubt be congratulated for saving San Francisco, aka Gotham City.

No offense, Obama.

Naturally, Chron readers had a heyday with this one:

We know what you're thinking: Batkid 2016.

I love the passive aggressive journalism. that's what u get trying to fight for the people, they will crucify u in the end. big business is the answer to survival as a politician. romney should've won. his brutal disregard for the people would've worked in our favor ironically. but now we know at least.

That is freaking AWESOME!! I think he is also too good to meet with any politician. They just want some PR from the meeting. He deserves better than to be used by any pols. :-)
