04/17/2005: Our "By Invitation Only" Bush Government
Dan Froomkin (Washington Post) is reporting about a few “changes” to G.W. Loola-Pul-Luser Soc. Sec. Tour that began in Ohio this week in this article: New Twists for Bush’s Road Show.
”…And, after mounting criticism that the White House has been shattering presidential precedents, wrapping Bush in a bubble and possibly even violating free-speech rights by keeping dissenters out of Bush's so-called public events, the Bush team is trying something new today.
For today's event, the White House has eliminated any pretense that the events are open to the public, instead making it clear that the events are invitation-only.
That's certainly one way to address the issue.”
