He ejected the press so that he would not appear foolish when he trips over the questions of the attendees. It is an audience that, as a professional community organizer, he may not be qualified to address. If a person has worked as a community organizer his or her entire career, and then that person applies for a CEO position in a corporation, would he or she be seriously considered for the position? How does this guy get to pontificate? Unbelievable, They need to keep the "secret deals" private and out of the sight of the general public.
