White House press secretary Jay Carney earlier today refused to disclose the cost to the American taxpayers of the president’s golf outings. The question, from ABC’s Jonathan Karl, came on the heels of Carney’s claim that White House tours had been canceled as a result of the sequester because they are “labor intensive.”

But taking a helicopter, a wide-body jet and a 40-car motorcade to play golf with Tiger Woods isn’t?

These guys aren’t even trying anymore.
