ABCs Stephanopoulos has undisclosed ties to Obama activists who promoted presidentís career
Klein Online ^ | 1 8 2012 | Aaron Klein

ABC News commentator George Stephanopoulos has a previously undisclosed connection to President Obama – the two were part of a small group at Harvard University that met for a period of three years purportedly to promote involvement with U.S. community institutions.

Participants at the research project, which took place between 1997 and 2000, included scores of individuals with ties to Obama, including several activists who were later appointed to positions in the Obama administration. Other participants were instrumental in promoting Obama’s political career.

Just yesterday, Stephanopoulos was the subject of conservative criticism for pointed questions he asked Republican presidential candidates while hosting Saturday night’s New Hampshire debate.

Stephanopoulos is best known as the chief political correspondent for ABC News and the co-anchor of the ABC morning news program, Good Morning America. He also returned last month as host of the Sunday morning news program, This Week.

Prior to joining ABC News, Stephanopoulos was a senior political adviser to the 1992 U.S. presidential campaign of Bill Clinton and later served as Clinton’s White House Communications Director for two years.

However, an overlooked detail of Stephanopoulos’ work history is his participation alongside Obama in Harvard’s Saguaro Seminars, a long-term research project aimed at significantly increasing Americans’ connectedness to one another and to community institutions.

I think as Rush said today, Stephanopoulos had to ask the bogus questions to avoid the real issues, i.e. the economy, debt and unemployment. These type of questions would only make Obama look bad and he couldn’t do that! Blatant media bias on the runway.

I like seeing everyone finally taking notice to the corruption in the media by putting these retread political partisan hacks on the air. That debate he moderated was a disaster. He fully exposed himself for the Rat insider he is.

George Stephanopoulos is well-known as a clintonite. He should go back to the Orthodox Church, starting with the Sacrament of Holy Confession. (I went to Confession just before Christmas, so I’m not recommending anything I’m not willing to do myself.)

Martha Minnow is a gold-plated Serbophobe, and a card-carrying “human rightser” who helped create the bogus “independent Kosovo”. She also “prophesied” that obama would become President, and then she helped her “prophecy” along in a massive way. She had a big role in creating the mess we’re in now.

(By the way, I met Martha Minnow, took the Serbian side of an argument on Kosovo, and I won!!!!)

Finally, I participate in community activities and groups, especially Christian ones—REALLY Christian, not like the Marxist Wallis. There’s nothing wrong with community participation whatsoever. However, if you become an Alinskyite “community organizer”, that’s another thing altogether!

Why is this any kind of news? This jackass has been a Clinton hack for many years. I’m amazed that anyone thinks this piece of garbage is now a dummycrat sycophant.

Really . . . why is this news?

I’ll never forget this thug being interviewed by Ken Starr’s committee and showing up filthy, unshaven, messed up hair, drinking from a politically correct plastic water bottle, and mumbling through the questioning. He should have been held in contempt of congress and slapped in jail.

Do any Freepers remember when this jackass did that?

Maybe Stephanopoulos didn't have time to prepare for the debate?

The trouble with George. (White House aide George Stephanopoulos still has clout

September 18, 1995 - MESSY AFTER-HOURS ARrests have snuffed out more than a few Washington careers. The first television reports hyping George Stephanopoulos's arrest in Georgetown last week on charges of leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license had the ominous feel of a Wilbur Mills-style crackup. Press accounts claimed he was popping breath mints in front of the cops, and TV announcers intoned that Stephanopoulos "is free this morning after his arrest for a traffic incident last night ..." It seemed like a fitting comeuppance for someone who had, for many people, typified the arrogance and inexperience of the early Clinton administration.

Stephie comes out of the krinton WH and pretends to be a journalist. As a journalist, he pretends to be objective. Turns out, he’s biased and cozy with BO, too.

Who would have ever thought such a thing possible? The wonders of the modern age.

I remember that, but I think it was Judicial Watch, not Ken Starr, which is why Stephie showed up looking like a hung-over slob, and then walked out in the middle of the questioning. He didn’t take it seriously.

Don't remember that event, but I have intensely disliked that creep since the clinton years, and viewing the "War Room" documentary, which is available (for sale), as they are so proud of that thuggery during the election of BC.

Steppy boy made threats to people, if they came out with some bad information. Despicable thug and proud of it, he was.

It’s not that he’s a hack that is news. If you read the article which is long you’ll see the connections. I don’t recall the incident you mention. What was he called up for by Starr?
