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

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."

APRIL FOOLS! .....what? .....tomorrow? ....your telling me this is a REAL story?
I’m sure Stewart and Colbert will be right on this.
kinds makes me think of a PETA fool wearing a leather leather belt and shoes....
As we say in Texas, “His transparency turned to gasoline, and he couldn’t run a pissant’s motorscooter around a BB.”
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.
He parodied himself already. Not much left to do.
LOL. I haven't heard that in a long time.
You can’t even make this stuff up. Satire has become irrelevant.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
