An Honest Reporter..
« on: February 05, 2009, 11:44:56 am »
A reporter was escorted out of a White House event by Secret Service agents on Wednesday afternoon after he approached President Obama to seek an autograph.

At the end of an East Room signing ceremony for legislation funding the State Children's Health Insurance Program, an unidentified member of the media jumped the rope penning off reporters from invited guests in an apparent attempt to get Obama's autograph, according to a White House aide.

Secret Service agents swooped in and stopped him.

The Obama aide said the man was held by Secret Service--but he was later seen in the White House press briefing room under escort of a White House press aide, apparently to retrieve personal belongings and make his way out of the complex.

Secret Service agents were later seen examining the journalist's drivers' license, which suggests he was not a holder of a so-called hard pass, which are given to journalists permanently cleared to enter the White House complex.

Just sayin'

    So .... someone without even a media pass can get into the White House and 'approach' the President?
    If I saw a guy with a 60cu/ft safe filled to the brim with nothing but Jennings, Lorcins and Hi-Points, I'd look at the guy and say "Right on brother".

    well, he sure is different, but in this case, different is not better
    some people say he is the antichrist
    not saying that I am some people
    but it's an interesting label
