FOD

Sorry for the late FOD post, just following the president's lead on punctuality.

This week, prior to the president's departure for a Martha's Vineyard vacation, the most transparent administration in the history of the world, did this:

From White House Dossier
"At 11:18 am, the pool was brought to the windows outside the Oval Office for a photo spray. It lasted 10 seconds.
We spotted the president sitting at his desk, talking on the phone – his left hand to his left ear. He briefly fiddled with his pen. Several aides were sitting on the couches. The pool has requested a list but the pool did spot Tony Blinken, deputy national security adviser."
That's right, the press pool was allowed to press their noses against one windowed door, outside of the Oval Office, to snap a picture of the president pretending to be on the phone.  This photo:
WTH?  These are White House reporters.  People that have the security clearance needed to enter the WH every single day.  They couldn't be escorted inside the damn office to get a photo?  This is little more than a thinly veiled attempt by Obama's aides, to make it seem as if the Narcissist in Chief is actually attempting to do something resembling his job.
No worries, he quickly made his way to the Vineyard, dumped off the luggage and hit the links within 30 minutes of his arrival.  That makes the 28th round this year, 185th of his presidency.  He is totally going to blow my estimate of 200 rounds during 2 terms out of the water.
