    Yes this stuff is an issue, never do something you don't want people to find out about. The fact that he kept the media away tells you
    something. "Whats free press?"

    The media is belly aching that the president does not need them. Well well. Maybe if the socialist press would do their damn job and not just parrot the views of the DNC then maybe they would be seen as a player in this game. But the media gave up their power when they let president obama get everything he wanted with no input from an idependant media.

    Great "whine-fest"! Amazing display of arrogance on the part of a couple of well-respected journalists. "The press as the last front to protect the American people from a goverment-controlled propaganda machine" - unlikely, since the 24-hour news machine is too busy worrying about bangs, lip-syncing, and chasing ambulances so that they can beat the competition with "breaking news". But, after this morning's display of self-pity and sour grapes, I'm sure that they have an excuse for this, as well.
