WH attacks media reporting Hollywood party
Washington Examinier ^ | 1/9/12 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 01/09/2012 2:20:45 PM PST by Nachum

Under fire for allegedly hosting a secret Halloween theme party featuring movie star Johnny Depp at the White House in 2009, President Obama's spokesman punched back, calling reports about the party "irresponsible" and denying that the White House tried to hide the event from the public.

"There are outlets that have reported this as a secret party, which is just silly -- it's irresponsible reporting to suggest that you would have a pool report and the press at an event that's secret" White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today during the press briefing, adding that photos of Johnny Depp were available from the party. "This wasn't a publicity event, this was an event for military children," Carney also noted.

If it wasn’t ‘secret’, then why are we just now, over two years later, finding about about it?........

Because the media thought it might make Obama look bad so the media covered it up.

Technically he’s correct: the media, not Obama, deemed it a secret.

Methinks the military children was just for cover.

How do we know what o’s people said to the o loving media about the party? Did the press all come individually to the decision to not report it? that would be quite a coincidence.

That is a secret worthy of keeping; but, out missle secrets he gives to the Russians. I feel like I'm living in a bad movie.

There used to be mysterious gaps in Clinton’s visitors log also.

At any rate, secret or not (and it obviously was meant to be) this party was in horrible taste, classless and over the top and in a time when the obama created economy was causing many Americans to suffer.

You don’t have to tell a fish to swim.
It’s no coincidence that they all swim. It’s nature.

Is there some connection to F&F or Solyndra or else why are they trying to stop the media talking about this?

Methinks the 'military children event' is pure hogwash. Since when has Obama passed up a opportunity to use the military (or their children) to his advantage?

Why? Because it is a cheap and tawdry display of everything people dislike about this president. A vulger display of wealth, rich exclusionist group of friends, disgusting ideas of humor, combined with a crass bit of pandering to the military. Not to mention the appalling hypocrisy of using the children of veterans in a campaign event as they reduce the size and strength of the military. The kids' parents are in combat risking their necks and the president serves them up fake 'vials of blood'.

Maybe that's why. Just a theory.

It was all done for military children...

According to the comments under the article there were TWO parties

An afternoon one for the kids and an evening won for the chosen

Pool reporters could have indeed been at the afternoon kids one

When they say “military children,” my guess is they mean “well appointed, commissioned, political animals and their spawn.”

I was thinking the media reluctance to report stories of serious curruption committed by dimwads but that works,too.

Need to keep an eye on Johnny Depp before the Obamas decide he is a liability.
