White House Press Corps Misses... Bush?

The White House Press Corps (that's Corpse in O-speak) is notoriously fickle and quick to take umbrage when they sense any disrespect from an administration. Could they be turning on The One, whom they helped to anoint, who would have the most open presidency in modern times?

The [Obama] White House has adopted a pugilistic attitude towards the press, lashing out at journalists who criticize the president, shutting others out, and adopting a deferential attitude towards the press corps that has some journalists reminiscing about the openness of -- gasp -- the George W. Bush presidency.
The Obama administration "came in with every reporter giving them the benefit of the doubt," one journalist told Politico's Josh Gersten and Patrick Gavin. "They've lost all that goodwill." It seems that the press corps's offense is questioning the administration's positions.

At least the Obama regime can lay claim to one thing: being the most thin-skinned in modern history.

Who'da thunk the press would have missed his openness.
