Perfect: Obama Accepts Transparency Award in Closed Press Ceremony
Michelle Malkin ^ | 3/31/11 | Doug Powers

Posted on 03/31/2011 5:41:20 AM PDT by Lakeshark

If anything, the Obama administration has a consistent knack for making me feel like I’m at a meeting of the Endangered Elephant Awareness Club while being served pachyderm-popper appetizers on an ivory plate.

From Politico:

"President Obama finally and quietly accepted his “transparency” award from the open government community this week — in a closed, undisclosed meeting at the White House on Monday.

The secret presentation happened almost two weeks after the White House inexplicably postponed the ceremony, which was expected to be open to the press pool.

This time, Obama met quietly in the Oval Office with Gary Bass of OMB Watch, Tom Blanton of the National Security Archive, Danielle Brian of the Project on Government Oversight, Lucy Dalglish of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and Patrice McDermott of OpenTheGovernment.org, without disclosing the meeting on his public schedule or letting photographers or print reporters into the room."

Was this given before or after the media guy was locked in a closet by Biden?

How appropriate for a Nobel Peace Prize winner who bombs the s**t out of a small country that’s not an imminent threat to the U.S.

1984 — Doublespeak — is running rampant in gov’t today...

This marxist assclown reminds me of military officers with a hundred ribbons on their dress uniforms.
And ya know most had nothing to do with whatever those ribons were for.

Maybe he is finally too ashamed to accept it in public. Nah, that would be a step toward self awareness. More likely he just didn’t want to be bothered with all the photos etc. Interfered with the Tee time etc.

You can’t even make this stuff up. Satire has become irrelevant.

This story is missing the required “hurl-across-the-room” tag.

I think I’m moving toward getting over whether the pos is an American or not. His ANTI-Americanism can’t be overlooked.

Like some "news" blurb I saw on a TV while sitting in a bank lobby back in 2009, where some group I never heard of before had announced that his administration was - and I quote - "the most ethical" ever. O-crook had only been in office for 4 months.

You can’t do this one, Iowahawk. It’s already taken.

[OMB Watch, the National Security Archive, the Project on Government Oversight, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and OpenTheGovernment.org]

These are mostly bogus, watchdog cut-outs. What they have in common—with the exception of Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press—is they are funded by George Soros.
