One of President Barack Obama’s top campaign spokesmen is a private equity manager whose firm has shut down several factories and laid off hundreds of people amid a stalled economy.

Federico Pena’s role at Vestar Capital Partners has emerged as Obama’s aides and deputies continue their effort to portray former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney‘s investment career as ruthless, job-destroying, profit-maximizing “vulture capitalism.” Pena has been a partner at Vestar since 2000.

There is an even better story that has already been reported on a bit. Barry has at least one major donor/bundler who work/worked AT BAIN WITH ROMNEY.

Yeah! It’s that darned “transparency” thingy Obama talked about.

It looks like people who live in opaque glass houses just got their windows opened a little, by the new media rock that just flew through it.

Obama is known for putting his feet on his desk and all over the furniture in the White House. Now he has stupidly put his foot in his mouth. His staffers and advisers are reallllly poor on researching and advising him on things to say/what not to say. What a dumb bunch of clods. Our country is being run by a group of amateurs who are still in the on-the-job training phase

“Simple. The media just won’t report on it.”

that’s why you get it out on FACEBOOK, that’s why you get it out on TWITTER, that’s why you email to everyone you know.

It’s time to start acting like the liberals do, folks.

"Simple. The media just won’t report on it."

Exactly right. Much of the message control is simply what gets reported and what doesn't. Another example is the new lawsuits against Obamacare by over 40 Catholic organizations. The major broadcast media, except Fox, has either ignored it entirely or just made it a minor footnote mention.
