Establishment Conservative Journalists Meet Off-the-Record with Obama at White House
Breitbart ^ | 10/8/2013 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 10/08/2013 9:14:29 PM PDT by RightGeek

In a clear attempt to woo largely establishment conservative commentators who have loudly opposed the GOP’s current government shutdown strategy, President Obama held an off-the-record meeting with the Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer, the Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot, National Review’s Washington editor Robert Costa, syndicated columnist and former CNN co-host Kathleen Parker, and Byron York of the Washington Examiner.

I’d just love to know Krauthammer’s professional opinion (psychiatrist, not commentator) of Obama, especially after meeting/observing him in person.

Actually he just wanted their advice on how to survive as a has-been!

And what an excellent choice of participants he made...

Their response should be...Repeat after me.

I’m not a journalist but how on Earth can that be remotely ethical?

I double dog dare Obama to privatly meet with Alex Jones or Mark Levin. Better yet make it a pay-per-view event in the cage.

What? Obama meeting with select press members? No unethical in any way.

Care to explain your reasoning?

Just receiving their orders. They’ll each gladly comply and play their part in the false paradigm as controlled opposition.

I think this is not his first time meeting with Obama. Seem to recall a similar event a few years back.

I guess I’ll have to reassess York. I didn’t figure him for a stooge.

Seriously, what a vacuum.

Kathleen Parker? She is not even a moderate Republican.

York has done some good work, but is so laid back you can miss his point anyway.

Krauthammer will take his talent to plug any side of any issue, as long as there’s a paycheck at the end of it. He doesn’t seem to care about anything much.

The only one on that list who comes close to not being a squish is Byron York.

The question is, did King Barry slap a manilla folder with the NSA's logo on the front and their name on it down on a table in front of each of them while sitting together, or call them into a room one at a time and do it?

Let's be clear.. Each one of these people were given warnings and warned not to disclose they've been warned.

I put this together in Feb 2009. Things are only getting worse.

So how does this work? Do they all socialize with Good Old Barry regularly anyway and just decided to go over to his house this time to hang out (the group being a latter-day "Choom Gang" of rather square, semi-useful idiots), or does some gray functionary of the Empire deliver them a summons - or FBI/NSA/CIA/LSMFT dossier - at the front door that must be obeyed... or else? I mean, they all have their freedom of association rights yet... right? Not that I really give a damn since everyone mentioned has been on my "trust them as far as I can throw them list" for varying lengths of time, but I'd kind of like to know how cozy each one of them is with this miscreant.

(Yes, simple fact that this has happened makes the correct answer "too cozy." Part of me still would like to know the extent of their descent from light into darkness.)

In any event, each one of the lot has now been outed, and I bid them a hearty, "Well, bye!"

(visualize Powers Boothe "Curly Bill" pic)
