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.

Did Chuck Todd forget a few things? Love isn’t just blind; it’s blinding!

Based on his lapdog history, Chuck Todd will never learn.

Twitter users who already get it aren’t surprised, and call out the president as only they can.

Another killer photo op!

And a silver lining to the secrecy?

  • Scott

    He doesn’t need to even take the oath again. The POS hasn’t bothered to uphold the first one atleast I cant say he lied again.

  • my preciousss!!

    closed oath? that’s because he’s going to place his hand on the quran, instead of the bible.

  • Timothy Powell

    He probably wants to put his hand on the Quran and doesn’t want everybody to see it…

    Not only his hand on the quran, but he’ll be wearing muslim robe[whatever it’s called] and mooch & the girls will wear burkhas. Soon they’ll be public about this but not just yet. Hmmm

    the only time ive ever seen a president take his oath in a room with little media was in 2002 with Alvaro Uribe (Colombia) and there was a legit reason: Both the palace of congress and the presidential palace were being attacked by terrorists!!!!
    in other words: you have no reason Barry

    Hey, come on, give him a break, guys!
    You know that it’s . . . ‘challenging’ for him to say “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States” with a straight face.

    • conservativechick

      SOOOOOO True! He has no respect for the Constitution OR our laws. I bet anything he will try to be a real, not just in name, DICTATOR!

    If Roberts swears him in again they’ll need to keep this closed or else there will be a collective vomiting by a lot of us. They’ll have to call FEMA to clean up the mess.

    Here’s the thing: Inauguration Day is on Sunday. The public ceremony will be the next day, Monday. If you read the linked article, there have actually been no “indications” that press won’t be invited to the swearing-in. Twitchy strikes again.

    • operanerd1986

      Reporters are apparently annoyed that they won’t be invited to the private swearing-in on Sunday because they consider that to be the ceremony that “counts.” Here’s a link to a POLITICO story about it: http://www.politico.com/story/2012/12/press-fear-obama-private-swearing-in-84776.html

      • Purple State

        Exactly. That was the story I was referring to. Here’s a passage from it:

        ”There is no truth to any rumors that decisions have been made about media access to this year’s inaugural events,” Rachel Racusen, a spokesperson for the committee, told POLITICO. “The 2013 Presidential Inaugural Committee announced its launch yesterday and is just beginning its planning. Any announcements about media access and credentials will be made in the coming weeks.”

    The slimestreamers are trying to collect now. They’ve lied for, fawned over and butt-kissed the messiah so much that they believe they’re finally entitled to unfettered unlimited all-access to his greatness. Silly slimestreamers.

    So, what will he be hiding?

  • http://twitter.com/lgordon817 Lynn Gordon

    He doesn’t want to place his hand on a bible in public. Oh, and msm? Can you say “irrelevant”? You got him elected, and now he doesn’t need you anymore. Too bad… so sad!

  • IronButterfly

    Because he will still be in Hawaii.

      on his 4million dollar 20day taxpayer funded vacation. What a douche.

  • michael s

    It could be a concern for his safety. After all Pres Obama has received more death threats than any other president in the history of this country.We all know why that is. maybe someone like Michael Dunn admtted conservative/member of the florida republican party will try to harm him.Or another right winger like Wade Michael Page.

    HOW DARE HE!!! How dare he go by the Constitution that requires he be sworn in by January 20th!! How dare he have the public celebrations the next day since this date falls on a Sunday!! There must be some simple explanation, but first let’s get outraged!!!!

    I think President O’Bonehead doesn’t want the public to know that the final four words of his oath of office are the words, “…so help me Allah”.

  • stellatruman

    I planned on not turning my TV on for the days surrounding his swearing in because I can’t stomach it on any level…bet it is sworn on the q’ran or perhaps not at all so he can keep pushing thru his agenda without the objections of his brainwashed followers.

  • moonsbreath

    Good. It means the one soap I watch won’t be pre-empted.
