Video: White House Press Secretary Reduced to Explaining That Obama Has Eaten Dogs
Mental Recession ^ | 08/16/2012

ABC's White House correspondent Jake Tapper has reported that the love affair between the mainstream press and the President may be over - not for a lack of effort on the media's part.

President Obama hasn’t formally taken questions from the White House press corps in more than two months, while on the campaign trail in Iowa yesterday he made time for reporters from People Magazine and Entertainment Tonight.

His last news conference was at the G20 in June, when he answered six questions from three reporters on the European debt crisis, the conflict in Syria, and the notion of politics stopping at the water’s edge.

His last formal White House news conference was on March 6.

So why has the President avoided the very people who ushered him into the White House in 2008? Perhaps he is worried that a press conference would involve questions on the sputtering economy, or how he has raided Medicare, or the rising troop death toll in Afghanistan? And with no control, the President instead propogates his rock star image by entertaining the tabloid journalists from People or Entertainment tonight.

Or perhaps it's just depression.

It's depressing to know that Mitt Romney has chosen an economic and budgetary wizard in Paul Ryan, and that this pick is lifting the Republicans in key swing states.

Or maybe it's depressing to know that you might have to defend the man who serves as the counterpunch to Ryan - Joe Biden, a man who doesn't know what state or century he is in.

Or maybe it's this: Your messaging is so far off course right now that Press Secretary Jay Carney had to resort to explaining charges that the President has eaten dogs...

If Romney had a pair he’d run that ad.

He would be stupid to do so. Unless Obama continued to eat dog after he was no longer under his stepfather’s authority, this is just a petty distraction.

The pathetic little man is afraid of his own worshipping at his feet press corps.

Given that Obama took a potshot at Romney based on a family trip from decades ago featuring a dog on the roof of his car(and nothing harmed the dog), this is fair game.
