President Obama maintains a secret schedule in which he hides celebrity dinners, public appearances and even golf outings hidden from the American people


The so-called worst president in 70 years likes to keep his secrets. But, I wonder what else he’s keeping secret from the American people? Vera Baker anyone, anyone?

 

The White House officially said Thursday what Twitter and MailOnline knew days beforehand: that President Barack Obama would travel to Colorado and obama2Texas this week for a series of fundraisers reports Daily Mail.: 

The events weren’t part of the president’s public schedule, but they became common knowledge after enterprising reporters obtained copies of exclusive invites for events with the president and shared them online.

The omission from Obama’s public schedule wasn’t an anomaly. The president and his administration have made a habit out of telling reporters at the last minute about previously scheduled out-of-town trips, fundraisers and speaking engagements.

Every president has a private daily schedule that a limited number of his staff are privy to, containing details of all the president’s activities throughout the day, including even his designated workout schedule and golf tee times.

Reporters usually don’t find out about those outings until they are happening, and the public is only informed that the president has left the White House if someone from the White House press corps writes about it or a bystander posts photos online.

As Yahoo News pointed out today, Items like the president’s recent lunch with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are often included on the secret, detailed copy of the president’s schedule but are left off his public itinerary if they’re considered part of his private life.

Neither the public nor the press would have ever known about that meeting if Clinton hadn’t told a reporter from People magazine, who in turn tweeted — and deleted — a note and a picture related to the secret encounter.
