From the Department of Glaringly Obvious Headlines

"White House meets lobbyists off campus"

Once again we find Dear Leader cynically ignoring even more of his many lofty campaign promises.

This time he's been caught simultaneously jettisoning both his solemn vow to not allow the foul stench of a common lobbyist to befoul his royal robes as well as his oft-stated commitment to "transparency" by freely releasing all of the names of any people who show up at the White House to plead for various indulgences:

"Caught between their boss’ anti-lobbyist rhetoric and the reality of governing, President Barack Obama's aides often steer meetings with lobbyists to a complex just off the White House grounds — and several of the lobbyists involved say they believe the choice of venue is no accident.

It allows the Obama administration to keep these lobbyist meetings shielded from public view — and out of Secret Service logs kept on visitors to the White House and later released to the public."

These lobbyists are like homely women who get callously used for sexual favors by the type of narcissistic men (ahem) who then refuse to be seen with them in public.  One sometimes wonders why both jilted groups keep going back for such cruel and cavalier treatment.

The article claims staffers also clandestinely meet with the lobbyists in such public places as a local Caribou Coffee outlet and the rest stop men's room at mile marker 72 on Route 66 in Virginia.

Okay, we made that last one up.  But we wouldn't be at all surprised if such secret meetings were indeed taking place in locations more often associated with prostitution, given the seamy nature of Obama's entire Mafia-like Presidency.
