these reporters kill me
they are hung up on Obama's promise of "transparency" for the American people, yet they think that means he needs to answer every question a reporter wants. He didn't promise transparency to reporters. He promised it when it came to where our dollars are being spent, and how the government is working. Is that just my opinion? They just sound like a bunch of whiny cry babies to me.

1. Amazing, isn't it? Each wants to be credited for "asking the really tough questions"
and every question is preceded by "You promised transparency, so tell me... blah blah".

3. sounds like this will be their
battle cry for these four years. I wish Gibbs would say something about it in his next briefing.

2. I hope they keep it up
I don't want reporters to take Obama at his word on his transparency promise.

4. They have spent the last 8 years turning a blind eye to the Bush Administration
without so much as a whimper. Now they want to know EVERYTHING that goes on in the Obama presidency? What an absolute joke they are.

6. How do people this dumb get this high up in Reporterdom?
It just astounds me. There must be more intelligent people in the field. Why aren't these bozos reporting the weather in Podunk, Idaho? Why are they at the level of asking questions of the Prez in DC?

7. For 8 years they've peed themselves like frightened dogs every time Bush walked in the room
for fear of losing access or appearing "un-American."

NOW all of the sudden they want to be reporters. Great.

9. They are really making me sick. They are so full of shit it's
ridiculous. They are abrasive and down right rude and disrespectful. Once they get the information they lie, and spin it depending on the direction they want to go in. It's all shit. fox is politico, WSJ is fox, who do you even trust anymore?

10. Transparency doesn't mean your going to get to
sit in the room for every important meeting or that you're going to get to see all the country's secrets... idiots. When did we see these kind of charges from the WH sheep over the last 8 years? In just three days, this administration has shown more transparency than we have seen in ages. Give it a rest.
