CNN’s Carol Costello: Obama’s People Can Be ‘Nasty,’ Willing to ‘Threaten Your Job’
Mediaite ^ | 1:23 pm, October 23rd, 2013 | Tommy Christopher

On Wednesday morning, CNN Newsroom anchor Carol Costello made a rather stunning, if cryptic, revelation.

In discussing the firing of national security official Jofi Joseph, Costello agreed with panelist Jason Johnson that the Obama administration can be thin-skinned, and said that “President Obama’s people can be quite nasty. They don’t like you to say anything bad about their boss, and they’re not afraid to use whatever means they have at hand to stop you from doing that, including threatening your job.” …

So you all collectively sold out the country to save your precious hides? Grow a pair...he can’t fire all of you at the same time.

Anita Dunn (favorite philosopher? Mao Tse Tung) said ‘the best thing we were able to do in the run-up to the 2008 election was to CONTROL THE PRESS’. The Media has been tightly controlled by this Regime. Now they, along with all the other Obama sycophants, are feeling a bit slighted when they find out their Svengali won’t hesitate to FIRE/RUIN/RIDICULE his enemies the way he has taught them to ridicule Republicans? We could tell IN JUST THE FIRST FEW MONTHS that this immature narcissist HAS to have his own way. And anyone who gets in his way will be RUINED! By hidden truth or blatant lie.

His people? Why is all the blame always pointed at Obama’s staff? Why is the buck never passed to this man, who is in charge and clearly and consistently orchestrating everything his administration does? Obama never accidentally does something conservative. His entire presidency is run like a typical, well-oiled, Alinky-ite machine, in terms of the politics. Obviously there’s nothing well-oiled about his administration when it has to actually produce a tangible product or service.

We all knew what he was long before he was elected. This is no surprise to informed people, but to his groupies in the press, they are just now seeing the light when some of their own start going down.

With all these people taking the blame for every decision BO has made, I’m wondering who will stand up finally and not take the all for him.

Costello didn’t get the heat directly from Obama. If she did, one must wonder if she would say so.

The Chicago mob is more ruthless than ever. The descendants of Al Capone have come a long way in the last 70 years.

The answer, I believe, is in the article, itself.

It should be noted that in fairness to Al Capone, the Obama people and the Messiah himself lack the honor that Al Capone had. Also, Al Capone turned out a product that people wanted while Obama put out his garbage Obamacare.
