Skip to comments.Obama's Propaganda Site (uses WH site to advance own political agenda -- from Barron's)

How President Obama is using the official White House Website to advance his own political agenda.
Who was the first president to politicize the White House Web page? Barack Obama! Every president on occasion has blurred the line between official business and campaigning, but Obama is measurably more aggressive than any of his predecessors. For him, blurring the line is official White House policy.
.... The politicizing of whitehouse.gov doesn't stop with student loans. In recent weeks, the administration has used the official site to advance its agenda on energy, health care, and the Buffett rule. This is hardly factual information about the workings of the administrative branch, the site's supposed topic.
White House staffers admitted in a "background" briefing with reporters a few weeks ago (no tape recorders allowed) that they view the Website as a way to get their message out to young, tech-savvy voters. They seemed desperate for tips from Web-journos on how to raise traffic levels.
The White House Website once was a portal for citizens interested in speeches, proclamations, and the history of the nation's most celebrated dwelling place. Now it's become a means for disseminating election propaganda.

add to that posts on FreeRepublic as well in his favor. The guy has is made not only does he have the media doing his work he has what was supposed to be one of the best ‘conservative’ website doing his attack and promotion work. Lucky guy.
Sad, but true.
People don’t want to face the CONSEQUENCES of their actions, which is the only thing that counts.
What? You don't like conservatives speaking their minds about Rino Romney?
There is no “blurring of the line” here. Obumo has and does use every outlet for the administration propaganda. I’m rather surprised he hasn’t commandeered milk cartons. And his army of trolls is darned active. They don’t mind regurgitating lies on any forum - no self respect whatsoever.
Anything to squash real debate.
Obama has gone from being a smooth ultra-liberal politician to an obvious demagogue. He hasn’t changed; he’s just become more obvious as he’s become more entrenched.
The thing to remember is that he is at heart a community organizer. A community organizer is a trained perpetual malcontent. He never has enough. He always wants more.
Even before he was sworn in, he did the same thing, with his president-elect/transition team website. This really irks me.
