Yeah, well, they can't handle the truth!

Obama, like most progressives, live in a fantasy world and can't have that nasty truth disturb it!

Let us set aside the obvious hypocrisy of a president who denounces the “1%” and calls for Americans to tighten their belts, while members of his own family summer on a Martha’s Vineyard estate, spend Christmas beachside at Oahu, and travel for fun to the ski slopes of Colorado, the luxury suites of Marbella, and now, scenic spots in Mexico. If that is the image Obama wants to cultivate, or those are the family pleasures with which he wishes to balance the rigors of his presidency, so be it.
Let us set aside, for the moment, the queasy feeling it brings, reminiscent of the air-brushed politburo photos of Mao’s China, to see news stories erased, one after another, at the behest of the White House. Doubtless there are security concerns here. Though, especially in the information age, it suggests an odd obliviousness to think that an optional holiday, entailing security concerns presumably serious enough to warrant erasing news stories, should not qualify as a legitimate story.

Emphasis mine.  I don't know what's worse - that the tyrannical dictator Obama is demanding that the media remove stories that might be unpleasant for his re-election campaign, or that the media, being nothing but whores and prostitutes for Obama, did so.

Who wants to start a pool on when Joe Biden disappears from all official records?
