    The Orlando Sentinel is a liberal paper he could be afraid he would get fired if let out this type of story about the Obama administration

    Of course, reporters are known for be docile, RIGHT?

    Read the story every time he opened the door the guy guarding the door said not time yet.

    So he just stayed in the closet without a fuss for an hour and 15 minutes... You're expecting me to believe that.

    The guy is a low level staffer, I'm sure being kept waiting is nothing new.

    Reporter Scott Powers was the designated "pool reporter" for the vice president's Wednesday visit to the massive Winter Park, Fla., home of developer and philanthropist Alan Ginsburg. The veep hadn't arrived yet but most of the 150 guests (minimum $500 donation) had. They were busy noshing on caprese crostini with oven-dried mozzarella and basil, rosemary flatbread with grapes honey and gorgonzola cheese and bacon deviled eggs, before a lunch of grilled chicken Caesar and garden vegetable wraps.

    Not so for Powers. A "low-level staffer" put Powers in a storage closet and then stood guard outside the door, Powers told the DRUDGE REPORT. "When I'd stick my head out, they'd say, 'Not yet. We'll let you know when you can come out.'"

    And no crustini for Powers, either. He made do with a bottle of water to sip as he sat at a tiny makeshift desk, right next to a bag marked "consignment." Powers was closeted at about 11:30 a.m., held for about an hour and 15 minutes, came out for 35 minutes of remarks by Biden and Sen. Bill Nelson, Florida Democrat, and then returned to his jail for the remainder of the event.

    C: Powers said he had a cell phone in that closet, why didn't he take a picture with it, or a video to show us all his claim. As he says in the article "i tried to stick my head out, and they said not yet not yet" somebody just wanted some attention. I would have videod or something.

    Were you truly that gullible councilman?

    That's rhetorical.
    There was a picture from inside the "closet" It looked more like a junk room. I have one of those. Didn't you even click on the link?

    A low level staffer does not do this on his own he is told to do this.

    Post is old, picture didn't show up the first time I opened it.

    Still 1 picture in an hour and 15 minutes?
