WHY DID OBAMA MYSTEROUSLY DITCH HIS PRESS POOL?

UPDATE: SOCCER GAME DIDN’T EXIST?

By the way, this is what Obama looks like at a soccer game. Still no pictures–even two days later. Where did the President go? Where is the media? Considering we just disarmed to Russia and Poland’s President and 95 others were killed hours before, and Kyrgystan’s government was just overthrown should raise even more questions.

Update: By the way, this is what Obama looks like at a soccer game. Still no pictures–even two days later. Where did the President go? Where is the media? Considering we just disarmed to Russia and Poland’s President and 95 others were killed hours before, and Kyrgystan’s government was just overthrown should raise even more questions.

President Obama mysteriously broke years of protocol yesterday by ditching the small White House press pool that moves with him everywhere he travels.

The maneuver appears to have been an intentional effort to deceive his entourage, since, when the troupe was gathered at the White House 23 minutes after he departed, Obama’s press spokesman, Josh Ernest, said, “The president decided this morning to attend his daughter’s soccer game. The pool was assembled as soon as possible to be there as well.”

This seemingly benign breach of protocol has powerful implications. The President dumped his press contingent to attend a school soccer game for one of his daughters? Says who? Well, says the White House … and only the White House.

In fairness to the President, perhaps he did indeed attend his daughter’s soccer game. He probably did. But anyone who thinks this supposed innocuous bit of chicanery is not serious misses the larger point. Half of the American people – people who are still citizens of this country – no longer trust him. Many believe he has an un-American agenda.

The President of the United States serves at the pleasure of the people; his time belongs to us. The media, regardless of how politically corrupt and biased (and they have been shameful in not vetting this man), are America’s eyes and ears in regard to the President’s travels.

For all – and this is taking the argument to the extreme – for all we know, the President met with Osama bin Laden yesterday morning. For all we know, he ceded his presidential powers to a cabal intending to take over the country.

Does anyone actually believe he did such a thing? Well, some probably do, but no reasonable person would. But, in any case, we don’t know. For more than an hour yesterday morning the President of the United States disappeared.

Other presidents have traveled, even abroad, on clandestine missions. But the press has never been in the dark. In situations where the Commander-In-Chief’s life could be in danger the press remains silent until they are advised the details can be made available to the American people.

Barack Obama’s behavior is becoming more than slipshod and in-your-face arrogant – it is becoming downright Orwellian. Never in history has any president treated the American people with such disdain. This latest insult demonstrates the total lack of regard this president has for those who elected him to the highest and most powerful office in the world.
