Obama leaves WH without press, breaking protocol
Google News ^ | 4/10/10 | AP

Posted on 04/10/2010 6:17:45 PM PDT by mort56

President Barack Obama quietly breached years of protocol on Saturday morning by leaving the White House without the press with him.

About two hours before reporters were supposed to be in position to leave with the president, Obama left the grounds of the White House. Members of the press were told he was attending one of his daughter's soccer games in northwest Washington, D.C.

The White House press corps traditionally travels with the president anywhere he goes, inside and outside the country, to report on the president's activities for the benefit of informing the public and for historical record.

How do we know he went to his child's soccer game...because the WH says so? Not good enough for me.

I think he had secret meeting with his commie handlers.

If that is, in fact, where he went and was not meeting arabs or gambinos or something at the soccer game then that is the first thing the man has done that I appreciate.

Surely there must be at least one conservative minded person at that soccer game that would have noticed if the President and his huge entourage was really there that would speak out if he WAS NOT there.

When does he work?

Obama eventually left the White House again on Saturday for a round of golf. This time, the press was with him.

So if true, what a nightmare for the Secret Service. Crappo-man just “decides” to go to a public event without any prior arrangements made by the SS? What did he do, sit in the limo behind bullet-proof darkened glass and watch that way??

Frankly, I want corroborrative pictures of him there before I believe this.

Me neither. Next time maybe he can go without secret service or his marxist administration tagging along too.

Indeed. Press or no press, the president doesn't go to a soccer game without the rest of the world finding it out.

If you bootlicking media types aren't getting a clue by now, you never will. Your usefulness as Leftist idiots expired when you helped elect Dear Leader. Now you're going to brave the same seas of irrelevance as the rest of us, and I'll throw you a cinder block if you ask me for a life ring.....you elitist maggots.

He’s just tired of the job already. It’s not nearly as much fun as he thought it would be.

Not sarcasm. I am sadly serious.

Leave him alone. There are sooooo many real things to worry about.

A fate worse than death.

I truly feel sorry for the Secret Service guys that have to put up with this narcissistic POS on a daily basis.

That would be on Friday.

Saturday is for Jews, the sabbath.

Sunday is for Christians, the first day of the week.

So, the sandmaggots had to pick out a different day.
