Josh Gerstein, a former colleague of mine, has quite the dispatch up at Politico:
A four-hour stop in New Orleans, on his way to a $3 million fundraiser.
Snubbing the Dalai Lama.
Signing off on a secret deal with drug makers.
Freezing out a TV network.
Doing more fundraisers than the last president. More golf, too.
President Barack Obama has done all of those things — and more.
Oh, and he also had a political aide and a press secretary sit in on a Situation Room meeting about Afghanistan policy. So where's the interest-group outrage and the negative press? Mr. Gerstein quotes a former George W. Bush aide saying of President Obama: "The watchdogs are curled up around his feet, sleeping soundly."
