Press corps expresses ‘frustration’
over lack of access to Obama

The Hill, by Meghashyam Mali

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/18/2013 6:44:40 AM

The White House press corps on Sunday expressed frustration with the lack of access given to President Obama this weekend, during his trip to Florida. White House Correspondents Association President Ed Henry released a statement Sunday evening, saying that the press corps had not been given adequate access to the president and that the group would press for “transparency” in the future, according to a pool report.

Why does press what access when its members are only able to ask Obama fawning questions? If Obama held a presser today, questions would be on his improved backswing, why he thought Republcans were undermining him, how Mooch´s ski vacation compared to his getaway, Rubio´s water bottle and how it feels to be honored on Presidents Day. There would not be a single question on his pattern of lies, his total lack of transparency, his enormous deficits, his failed stimulus, soaring health care premiums, falling living standards or Bengazi, Syria, Egypt or any country.

So just why does the press even bother complaining?

He can´t govern so he´s rubbing it in our noses. Have they tried calling Tiger´s favorite local escort service?

(Heard walking off the tee: "Tiger, what did that divorce cost?" "750 million." "Was it worth it?")

Regardless, Obama is still their guy. ´Expressing frustration´ and general whining will be the most that the press corp will do. Obama will flash those pearly whites at them once and all will be back to normal in the kingdom

Perhaps a urinalysis should be required before he´s allowed back aboard AF1? If Obama´s favorite recreational drugs are discovered, no admission.

In a related story, CNN reports this morning that in order to reduce deficit, Obama as flown back to Washington on Jet Blue.

Excellent idea, #8. The press has done nothing to date which would warrant them printing anything more that printing Bam Bam´s talking points. Oh wait......they did pick up on Rubio´s water obsession.

Whether the press has access or not it will be the same result. They have their marching orders and are good little soldiers. Every now and then they have to whine a bit to secure their fine reputations of being so unbiased.

They have done nothing but lie and cover up for Obama and his administration. They are pathetic sycophants who must bear much of the blame for the misery that we are all feeling and will continue to feel because their ideology was more important than truth.

Quite frankly, I´m glad they don´t have access to him. Nothing would change if they did, and I´m happy to have a day without him, without the constant reminders that he´s where he is and who he is, and what he´s doing every minute of every day he´s destroying the country.

I know it´s all still there, but if I don´t have to accidentally see his face or hear his voice in his current missive to his minions, fine and dandy with me.

Since they created him, and turned an unqualified socialist monster into POTUS, I guess they better figure out what they did wrong and do a better job next time.

Or else they could stay the hell away from the election process because they have proven time after time they are not qualified to select any of our leaders.

Since they aren´t getting access anyway, they should get up off their knees, wipe off their chins and do some real reporting. It wouldn´t get them any more access but it might save their papers/networks/jobs from going bankrupt.

Windex!

Maybe that’s what Obama needs to make his royal, regal, imperial administration more transparent. Up to now, it’s demonstrated about as much transparency as a lead-lined brick wall. How many times has he pledged that he “will not rest until” something or other is accomplished? At least dozens of times, I would venture to say; and he says it usually at rallies and campaign stops in front of enthusiastic, noisily cheering crowds of his loyal, low-information-voting supporters.

BHO, America’s Red, White and Blue Insomniac!

How times change.
I recall my father relating how the press used to excoriate Eisenhower for all the time he spent on the golf course... that´s Ike... the guy who successfully led the invasion of Europe.
I wonder how the two presidents compare when it comes to "time on the course".
Also, maybe someone could check to see if Ike ever spontaneously decided to go golfing at Fort Belvoir on a weekend afternoon which, in turn, inconvenienced all those golfers who had reserved tee times for that afternoon?
Funny, you never read any interviews of golfers who were tossed off a golf course for the convenience of the Commander in Chief.

Isn´t that "special?" Obama thinks President´s Day is a "vacation day" for presidents. Poor Tiger, trying to "teach" blockhead Obama anything "new" is a lost cause. Maybe Obama is recruiting Tiger with his "history" which impresses democrats for "something" in his administration.

Yet they think, when they are given a public weggie by Da Zippster; They really think that is news worthy and the punlic will really give THAT a rat´s rear?
Makes you wonder when Zippy wakes up and starts to examine his legacy; who will contribute to "His Library"? He might beable to have enough to build a two hole outhouse. I´d even volunteer to carve a moon on the door.

If only we could get the press to believe that Tiger was at Benghazi , perhaps they might show some interest.
A golf game is the only interest they´ve ever shown in the
non transparent White House.
The Bush White House didn´t have this type of PR problem because unlike Obama,
President Bush did not frolic and party-out of respect
to the soldiers and Marines fighting and dying in the war zones.

They´re only jealous because they love him more than all those other people. It´s got nothing to do with asking questions or exposing truth.

Their hero-worship has always been rewarded with backhands and cold shoulders and they´ve kept it up. To the point of frenzy during the campaign. Why would anyone think they actually care about news gathering now? They just want to be close to him again.

This points out how absolutely stupid these bozos are. He got reelected, thanks in large part to them and he doesn´t need them any longer.
He won´t hold another press gathering until 3 months before the 2014 midterms. And they will then love him and his party again.But until then, they will go wanting for an audience with his majesty.

Whether or not they have access to the President is not the main point. The questions they ask when they do get an opportunity are what count. To date, after more than four years, virtually none of these people have asked any questions that are pertinent to the Country. Either ask the tough questions or go to the society pages. Obama CANNOT answer tough questions because then all the World would know what kind of person he really is.

First came the “polar vortex” — now it’s the “pollen vortex.”Forced to lie dormant by the long, brutal winter, trees are now set to start reproducing like crazy — and create a massive amount of pollen that could wallop your sinuses this weekend. Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says. April is generally the worst month of allergy season,

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
