Obama ditches the press corp – again.

Obama got in another round of golf yesterday but then broke protocol yet again and ditched the press corp that follows the President around, ostensibly keeping we peasants citizens informed as to what our top employee is doing with his time.

In a breach of long-held tradition, however, Obama’s motorcade left Andrews without the reporters in tow. The president returned to the White House shortly before 6 p.m., according to the administration, and the press vans got there about 15 minutes later.

This isn’t the first time Obama’s motorcade has left reporters behind.

No, it’s not. This is something he’s done before to attend a soccer or basketball game where his daughter was playing – and for the record I don’t have a problem with that – but there have been instances where that wasn’t the case. So, what’s the excuse this time? And I would sure like to know how many times President Bush did this and what the reaction from our friends in the media and on the Left was at the time. Assuming, of course, that he ever did it?

Now, maybe this was a “no big deal” moment, but given the President’s propensity to promise things to leaders of foreign government when he thinks we Americans aren’t listening, it’s not unreasonable to be suspicious when he deliberately leaves the press behind and disappears for hours. Was he someplace speaking to someone and suggesting that he’d do something after he was elected that he knows would keep him from being elected if he did it before?
