Obama to donors: "thanks for the cash, now bugger off and let me eat my waffle, eh"

The WaPo of course tries to spin this as some sort of ethical stance, reigning in influence, blah, blah, blah.

...Nearly a year into his presidency, that pattern has led some top Democratic donors across the country to grumble that they aren't getting the kind of personal attention from Obama and access to the White House they became used to during the eight years of Bill Clinton's presidency.

"I've had almost no communication with the White House," said Chris Korge, a top supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton from Miami who later collected $5.5 million for Obama, making him one of the president's biggest fundraisers...

Big gloat factor here with these tools/fools being stiff armed by the Messiah. But that's what narcissists do - once your usefulness to them is over, you get stuffed under the bus.

One can be "ethical" and yet stroke the egos of those who helped put you where you are. Its not too hard to hand out invites for White house visits, events, golf games etc, let someone prattle on about what they'd like you to do for them, listen politely, then completely ignore whatever it was they were prattling on about, or fob them off on a lackey who can make sure they get enmeshed in the maze of bureaucracy "taking it through channels".

I wonder if Obama's handlers are just trying to limit proximity to him by those outside the inner circle in an unscripted environment because they fear he could say something inconvenient that would eventually find its way into the press.
