Still reeling from a campaign in which both candidates limited media access and refused to answer hard-hitting questions like "What about your gaffes?", the political press has come to realize that the president won't even answer questions such as "What about your golfs?"
The White House did not allow pool reporters to cover Barack Obama's weekend outing with Tiger Woods, prompting White House Correspondents Association's Ed Henry to issue a statement saying, "a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend."
The only people having a more sub-par day than the media were Fox Nation commenters:

I refuse to write about this story involving Tiger Woods in a sex clinic out of protest for the fact that it has already written itself and is putting decent American political humorists out of a job…
"I'm a strong believer that anybody can look within themselves, find their flaws and fix them," President Obama said.
Bill Clinton, whose experience might be particularly instructive, made a personal call to offer encouragement.
Can't these people leave anything for the rest of us?

War in Afghaniwhat? Unemploymenwho? War on Christmwhere? Health cabibble? Forget it! All humans in the U.S. of A. have contracted "Tiger Fever," even Harry Reid, who is supposed to be- who can tell, at this point?
But he is definitely not supposed to be addressing reporters like this…
"Get the answers from Tiger Woods," Reid, with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek, said even before reporters could ask him a question.
When an aide warned Reid that his quip would "end up on the CNN Web site," the smiling majority leader repeated his previous directive.
"Ask Tiger, not me," Reid said as he walked away from the closed-door briefing he had just received on Afghanistan.
At least now we know the truth: Harry Reid has been having an affair with Tiger Woods, which prompted Tiger Woods' wife to attack him with a golf club because she wanted the secret Afghanistan strategy plans he's been hiding in his car, and Harry thinks this is just hilarious, because he is such a heartless cad.
Of all the Senate Majority Leaders in DC, poor Tiger had to walk into this one…
