White House Cancels Sunday Press Pool Coverage Game Change?
Mediaite ^ | 1-10-10

Posted on 01/10/2010 2:40:50 PM PST by My Favorite Headache

Late last night, the White House announced that there would be no pool coverage for Sunday, January 10. While the President had no scheduled events this weekend, there was pool coverage yesterday.

It could be a mere coincidence, or it could be that the White House is trying to catch its breath before responding to bombshell revelations in the upcoming book Game Change,excerpts of which poured out all day yesterday. President Obama already issued a statement about Harry Reid’s “negro dialect” quote, but even more explosive passages have emerged since.

The newest passages from the book to hit Marc Ambinder’s blog could be even more explosive than Reid’s, as several of them involve the Clintons. Among these is an anecdote about the late Ted Kennedy taking offense at President Clinton’s assertion that “A few years ago this guy (Barack Obama) would have been getting us coffee.”

While pool reporters are normally just there to observe and report, the only thing stopping them from peppering the President with questions is the icy stare of the press staff.

Also of interest, Jake Tapper reviews President Obama’s responses to other racially incendiary remarks in the past, which have some crying “Hypocrisy!” I would point out that the devil is in the details. In each case, Obama provides a fairly clear rationale. In Reid’s case, it seems he earned a storehouse of goodwill that the others cited did not.

I hope they aren’t behaving stupidly...

The problem with Obama is that nothing bothers him...Hassan didn't bother him. The panty bomber didn't bother him.

Dereliction of duty doesn't bother him.

As usual, he heads for a closet.

Ted Kennedy taking offense

I'm sorry, but leaving a girl to drown in a few feet of water while you work your butt off to try to escape blame, kind of makes you lose any qualifications you might think you have as a moral arbiter. It's like Tony Soprano getting mad at Paulie Walnuts if Paulie uses the "N" word.

Meantime, the repeated false accusation by McCain’s handlers that Sarah Palin wasn’t up to prepping for the Biden debate seems to have been lost in the shuffle.

I think that was supposed to be the blockbuster revelation, but it seems to have been overwhelmed by all these Democrat racist gaffes.

LOL. Racism credits... similar to the Rape Credits and Sexism Credits purchased by BJ Clinton via his legalization of the abortion pill?

Legalize baby killing in a pill form and the so-called feminists will forever turn a blind eye to rape. It's amazing what the left can do by living in a land of make believe!

“A few years ago this guy (Barack Obama) would have been getting us coffee.”

Quite a comment from the so-called "first black President"

This IMHO will be Hollywood Gossip compared to what Glenn is hinting about.

Remember, Glenn says this week something big will break that will make the ACORN pimp-prostitute ordeal look tiny.

If it is that big, do we get an insulated Whitehouse like Nixon, which is really Ironic, since Mark Levin calls the Bamster, Richard Millhouse....

They are just like Carbon Credits, you can store up
before hand or even buy them as you need them depending
on your Racist Footprint.
