A deputy press secretary for Barack Obama's reelection campaign married an ABC reporter over the weekend. The ABC reporter, Matthew Jaffe, "covering the 2012 presidential campaign," according to his biography on the website of ABC News. "For the past year he traveled around the country covering the Republican primary, from the Iowa Straw Poll to the various debates to this year's primaries and caucuses."

The deputy press secretary Jaffe married is Katie Hogan. Many members of Obama's reelection team and the press celebrated the wedding together Saturday.

I guess this would be concerning if it weren’t for the fact that ABC already is ALL IN with re-electing 0bama. Can their coverage get more biased than it already is?

Considering how the media is in bed with Obama, I guess it’s nice that a couple of them actually went through the nuptials.

What? They’re not asking for donations to the Obama campaign in lieu of crass material goods?

Didn’t Obama’s former budget Director dump his former wife for an ABC Reporter who he later married?

It appears the campaign donations are only for the schumucks.
The elite continue as previously, LOL.

But that would be a great question to ask Jay Carney at the next presser.

President Obama’s geeky budget guru has a secret love child — with the Greek shipping heiress he jilted before hooking up with his hot new ABC News fiancée, The Post has learned.

White House Budget Director Peter Orszag’s ex, Claire Milonas, gave birth to daughter Tatiana Zoe in New York on Nov. 17, sources said.

The baby was born just six weeks before Orszag and ABC financial correspondent Bianna Golodryga gleefully announced their Dec. 28 engagement on national TV and in the press.

Sources close to Milonas said her family and close friends were stunned by Orszag’s boorish behavior.

Why is this surprising?

Jane Pauley is with Garry Trudeau.
Andrea Mitchell paired with Alan Greenspan.
Mary Matalin opened her legs for James Carville.
Mann Coulter is gettin’ jiggy with Bill Maher.

Politics makes bedfellows, nothing strange about it.

I always thought it was just Rachel Maddow moonlighting as the press secretary.

I thought we were now supposed to send $$$ to Hussein’s campaign rather than give gifts. With his birthday coming up, we’re supposed to also send $$$ for his extra special day.

In this day in age, where the left believes anything can marry anything else, where if it so desired, a doorknob could marry a jar of mayonaise, it’s fitting the the zer0 regime is marrying a “news” organization.

Someone in the Obama admin married a person of the opposite sex?! How hateful, bigoted and non-inclusive. This guy must be an undercover Republican troll.
