Why does Obama want to take his oath of office in private, with NO press present?—

Wait, what? We thought this was the most transparent administration evah! Oh, yeah: They evolved on that, too, at least according to Jay Carney. And the lack of transparency continues. This time, with more oath taking!
Oh, dear. Not only was the media shut out of the Romney lunch, but they now may be shut out of President Obama’s swearing-in. The media is once again learning that unrequited love totally hurts.
"This is not their oath, this is the constitutional oath. It’s not for them. It’s for the public, the citizens of the US" really Chuck Todd!—

Did Chuck Todd forget a few things? Love isn’t just blind; it’s blinding!
Remember that after Roberts/Obama bungled oath in Jan 2009, re-do was also closed press. Set bad precedent for press access during 1st term.—

Twitter users who already get it aren’t surprised, and call out the president as only they can.
Why Obama wants to ban media from swearing in. Think the swearing in will omit the oath. Obama will declare himself dictator of the U.S.—

Another killer photo op!
And a silver lining to the secrecy?
Who gives a shit if Obama takes his second oath in private? Consider it one less time we're forced to see his bitchmade ass on TV.—
