White House Press Corps: 'Extreme Frustration' With Lack Of Obama Access


The Huffington Post  |  By Jack Mirkinson Posted: 02/18/2013 7:22 am EST  |  Updated: 02/18/2013 8:11 am EST



White House Press Corps, Obama Tiger Woods, Wh Press Corps, White House Correspondents Association, White House Correspondents Obama, White House Press Corps Extreme Frustration, White House Press Corps Obama, Media News
.







The White House press corps expressed "extreme frustration" at the Obama administration Sunday after it was barred from being able to report on President Obama's golf outing with Tiger Woods.

The reporters who cover Obama every day were kept well away from the president as he hit the links. However, Tim Rosaforte, a writer for Golf Digest and Golf World, did get some access to the golfer-in-chief, and happily tweeted the event exclusively for hours.

The White House pool report, which was written by Agence France-Presse reporter Tangi Quemener and was posted at BuzzFeed and other outlets, expressed the mounting anger of the press corps:

We got confirmation at 1:45 PM that POTUS had been hitting the links with Tiger Woods inside the "Floridian" golf compound, 20 minutes away from the pool hotel. Your pool has been aware since this morning that a reporter, Tim Rosaforte, had been tweeting and talking on the Golf Channel about the POTUS/Woods game from inside the compound. Still officially under a lid, we decided to assemble and at 2:10 PM we logged a request to the White House for access to the President's game for a photo-op, like this administration and previous ones have granted in the past. We were told that we were free to travel to the Floridian but wouldn't get access to POTUS. After some back and forth, our handlers finally arrived at 4:17 PM and our bus was on the move quickly afterwards. We reached the Floridian's gates at 4:37. We're holding outside the compound and we're told that the President is not moving out of the Floridian and that the lid is still in place.
 
Ed Henry, the Fox News reporter who is president of the WHCA, issued a stern statement protesting the exclusion:

Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend. There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency.

Josh Earnest, the deputy press secretary for Obama, replied that the treatment was, to use a phrase, par for the course:

"The press access granted by the White House today is entirely consistent with the press access offered for previous presidential golf outings. It's also consistent with the press access promised to the White House Press Corps prior to arrival in Florida on Friday evening."

The White House press corps has often complained in the past about its level of access to Obama.

Tiger Woods Lost To A Guy He Had Beaten 75 Times In A Row



Jay Yarow|Feb. 22, 2013, 9:46 AM|133|1


Tiger Woods lost in the first round of the Accenture Match Play yesterday to Charles Howell III.
 
It's not a massive surprise that Woods was sent packing early. He hasn't played well at Dove Mountain, the course that hosted the Match Play. He lost in the second round last year and the first round the time before that.
 
But it is surprising that he lost to Howell, because he was undefeated against Howell.
 
Howell and Woods have played against each other for years. They started as amateurs, then were members at the same golf club in Florida. Through the years, playing matches professionally and on the side for fun, Woods had always beaten Howell.
 
After the match, Howell estimated that he had lost 75 times in a row against Woods. He kept expecting Woods to eventually beat him, but it didn't happen.
 
Woods didn't play poorly yesterday. He missed a few shots here and there and lipped out a putt, but he didn't have a single bogey. Howell just outplayed him. He was draining putts from all over the greens.
 
If you want to get a big picture story on Woods for this year from this loss, you're out of luck. It was a freaky event — there was a snow storm that delayed Woods and Howell's match. As we've already noted, Woods hates this course. He can't get the greens figured out. And, it's not like he played poorly. It was a good round.
 
We'll get a better idea about Woods game next weekend when he plays at the Honda Classic in Florida. Woods was a two shots away from winning that event last year.
 
We suppose if you want to do the big picture thing, you could note that Woods aura of invincibility took another hit yesterday. But, really that's been going on since 2009 when he lost to Y.E. Yang in the PGA Championship, and then a few months later when he crashed his car into a fire hydrant.
 
One other note from the tournament: Rory McIlroy also lost in the first round. Unlike Woods, McIlroy didn't play well. Either his swing is rusty, or his new Nike equipment is giving him problems. He hasn't played very much this year. This was just his third round of the year in competition.

Does anyone know how many hours a night Obama sleeps? If it's over 4 hours, then he's playing too much golf. If its 4 hours or under, then a couple of hours a week to golf is no problem imop. Donald Trump says that he himself sleeps 4 hours or less.

Amid Cuts, Does a President Dare Tee Off?
 
By MICHAEL D. SHEAR
 
Published: March 6, 2013

 


WASHINGTON — Fair or not, the extracurricular lives of American presidents are often measured by how they compare with the everyday pursuits of the people they lead.

And so as the nation’s federal workers and others prepare to tighten their belts amid budget cuts, reduced overtime and furloughs, it is inevitable that someone would ask the question about President Obama and golf.

It came this week from, among others, Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker and Republican presidential candidate, who expressed outrage that the White House had canceled daily tours of 1600 Pennsylvania at the behest of the Secret Service, which said its officers were needed more elsewhere.

“Canceling White House tours is childish and dishonest,” Mr. Gingrich said on Twitter, citing a recent golf vacation the president took to the Floridian Yacht and Golf Club resort with a handful of friends and his Secret Service entourage. “The golf weekend in Florida cost enough to keep the White House open for months.”

Representative Louie Gohmert, Republican of Texas, even proposed an amendment that would prohibit the president from going on any more golf trips at federal expense until the tours resume at the White House.

Ari Fleischer, press secretary to President George W. Bush, said: “If George Bush were playing golf while this was under way, there would be pandemonium in the press corps about it.”

For Mr. Obama, the months ahead will be tricky. Few people object to a president taking some time to relax — to work out, play basketball, sit on a beach, go to dinner. And like all presidents before him, Mr. Obama does all those things with the costly machinery of government orbiting around him.

But the budget cuts known as sequestration are going to have an outsize effect on government workers who, like Mr. Obama, get their paycheck from the federal treasury. Some will be furloughed as often as once a week. Others will lose overtime, forcing them to cancel vacations or trim household expenses.

Officials said the White House staff would be affected, too. Some people will be furloughed, some nonessential equipment purchases will be delayed, and some staff members — though, by law, not the president himself — will be subject to reduced salaries.

“People are going to be hurt,” Mr. Obama declared just hours before the cuts went into effect last week.

So the president’s White House advisers are going to have to confront the question of how, or whether, to adjust his family’s activities. Should they go to Martha’s Vineyard? Will Michelle Obama and the couple’s daughters avoid trips like the ski vacation they took to Aspen last month? And what about the golf that Mr. Obama frequently plays at the nearby Joint Base Andrews?

Mr. Fleischer pointed out that the Pentagon’s leaders have warned that the budget cuts will have a serious impact on the readiness of the nation’s military. “What does it say about a sequester if a military golf course can stay open during it?” he said.

Charlie Black, a Republican consultant, said presidents deserved some time off, but added that Mr. Obama was vulnerable to criticism because he and his advisers “blew way out of proportion” the impact of the cuts.

“Maybe the crisis the president inflated will be alleviated enough for him to go to Martha’s Vineyard in August,” Mr. Black said.

A White House adviser said he did not know what Mr. Obama’s plans were for trips in the coming months, but he said the president’s staff would consider the impact of the budget cuts at the time.

“It’s too early to say,” said Josh Earnest, the deputy White House press secretary. “But he is the president of the United States wherever he goes, 24 hours a day. People don’t begrudge him taking a little time off.”

If the past is any guide, Mr. Obama tends to push ahead with life outside his day job even when it is sure to risk criticism.

The Obamas spent a week at an estate in Martha’s Vineyard in 2009 and 2010, even as the economic crisis was still gripping the country. In 2011, he went to the island just after the debt crisis fight but left early after an earthquake hit Washington and Hurricane Irene headed toward the East Coast.

Mr. Obama has also traveled to Hawaii each year in late December and his family has taken short vacations to Yosemite and the mountains of North Carolina. Mrs. Obama, her daughter Sasha and some friends took a trip to Spain in the summer of 2010 that drew criticism for its cost.

Such is the life of a modern president and his family. The first President Bush was mocked as out of touch when he was seen on a speedboat in Kennebunkport, Maine, during an economic downturn. President Bill Clinton hobnobbed with Hollywood glitterati and took heat for it.

And like Mr. Obama, the second President Bush was criticized for his frequent golf outings, which sometimes made him seem disconnected from the grim task of leading a nation in war.

For Mr. Obama, the golf weekend in Florida last month drew criticism at the time. But that was before budget cuts that officials say will build in intensity over the spring and summer.

For now, aides say they know of no plans for another such outing.

Obama Golfs—Third Weekend in a Row [What me worry?.......]
Weekly Standard ^
Posted on April 13, 2013 2:45:38 PM EDT by Sub-Driver

Obama Golfs—Third Weekend in a Row Daniel Halper April 13, 2013 12:59 PM

For the third weekend in a row, President Obama is hitting the links. CBS's Mark Knoller reports on Twitter:

On a mild Spring day in DC, Pres Obama is playing a round of golf at Andrews. Third Saturday in a row.

This weekend the Masters is being held in Augusta, Georgia, where Obama's golf buddy, Tiger Woods, has once again found himself at the center of attention.

Via the pool report:

On a cloudy but quite nice day, POTUS is hitting the links.

At 12:11 pm, he left from the North Portico of the White House. Your pooler only caught the slightest glimpse, but it looked like POTUS was wearing a windbreaker.

Pennsylvania Ave was shut down, with yellow tape holding back scores of onlookers in Lafayette Park.

Some of those onlookers smiled and took photos. Others were protesters, shouting something your pooler couldn't decipher (but thanks to the long lens of a pool photographer, it was possible to make out an anti-drone banner that depicted a drone striking a little family).

After an uneventful motorcade ride, we arrived at Andrews AFB around 12:40pm. As POTUS headed toward the golf course, pool split off and is holding in the food court at the Base Exchange.

Per a White House aide, here's the list of those playing golf with POTUS (all of them WH aides):

After a Week of Scandal and Lies… Obama Goes Golfing
 
Posted by Jim Hoft on Sunday, May 19, 2013, 12:09 AM

 

Fore!
 

After a week of enormous scandal and release of the Benghazi emails that proved the president and his top aides lied about the Benghazi massacre… Barack Obama went golfing today.
 ABC-Yahoo reported:
 

President Obama — despite dealing with a trio of political scandals that flared up this week — squeezed in some time on the golf course today, and included a woman in his foursome for the first time this year.
 
The president played golf at Andrews Air Force Base today with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, outgoing Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and Let’s Move! and nutrition policy advisor Sam Kass.
 
Obama has frequented the golf course often this spring, but until today always with male golfing partners. Sebelius is the first woman to join the president on the golf course this year.
 
The president’s golf outing comes after the White House spent a week dealing with a series of political scandals, from the IRS targeting conservative groups seeking tax exempt status for extra scrutiny, to the administration’s release of a trove of e-mails about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last year, to the Department of Justice obtaining phone records of Associated Press reporters.

Not at all - benghazi is still a scandal of giant magnitude. Just cause one source changed his story does not negate the rest of the mess.   Why did obama lie about the vido again?

The democratic party are the biggest hypocrites out there.

The jokeinchief telling people to tighten their financial belt, yet the moron doesn't have the same consideration for taxes being spent on his "golf" meetings and vacations.

Same with that retard Al Gore flying around in his jet and owning a home that uses 12 times as much energy as the average home, while preaching about the importance of buying electric/hybrid cars and reducing the individual "carbon footprint".
