    Transparency award

    President Barack Obama on Monday accepted an award celebrating transparency in government in a meeting closed to the press.

    "Our understanding going into the meeting was that it would have a pool photographer and a print reporter, and it turned out to be a private meeting," said Gary Bass of OMB watch, among five others who attended the meeting at the Oval Office in the White House, according to Politico.

    The award was originally supposed to be given to the president two weeks ago, but the">White House cancelled the event that day. Not that there was going to be extensive coverage of that meeting either. The small number of reporters who cover the president daily -- known as the travel pool -- were only going to be allowed in for a brief part of the meeting.

    But that's certainly more access than what happened on Monday.

    Kind of ironic don't you think.

    That is funny, a transparency award at a closed meeting, and I like Obama.

    The original event was cancelled becuase the President was busy signing secret authorizations for the CIA to be in Libya.
