Politics: Obama: When it's time for some questions, the Press has to leave

By ROBERT LAURIE - three cheers for the most transparent administration in history 

Yesterday, Barack Obama addressed the 2013 Winter Meeting of the National Governor's Association.  The assembly included governors from all across the country and, after his speech, the President wanted to be sure he opened the floor to questions.  After all, he's nothing if not forthcoming with information. He simply loves discussing the facts of his tenure in a free and open fashion.

That's particularly true when the people asking the questions are fellow elected officials.

Unfortunately, the leader of "The Most Transparent Administration In History" made sure you'll never know what your Governor asked.  Perhaps concerned about how he'd look when faced with an actual, tough, question, Obama gave the press the boot.

Heaven forbid the concerns of America's Governors find their way to C-Span.
