Skip to comments.Obama Woos Liberal Journalists With Another Off-The-Record Meeting
Posted on 11/21/2013 6:16:49 PM PST by originalbuckeye
On Thursday, Fox News Ed Henry tweeted that MSNBC hosts Ed Schultz and Lawrence ODonnell, as well as Ezra Klein of the Washington Post and Fox News Juan Williams, had been invited for a private off-the-record chat with President Obama. Obamas signature program, Obamacare, has been flailing in the press for weeks, and Obama apparently believes that it is about time to reshift the narrative: Juan Williams refused to describe what Obama himself said, but he did state that the White House is in full fight mode over the Affordable Healthcare Act right now. He added, They feel as if they had a major systems failure, a major management failure, and theyre trying to get back on track. Williams said that the biggest messaging issue has related to President Obamas lie that if Americans wanted to keep their health insurance plans, they could. There is frustration, thats clear from everybody who I was talking to this morning at the White House, Williams concluded. This is not the first time that the White House has wooed specific groups of journalists. In October, as Breitbart News reported, Obama met with The Washington Posts Charles Krauthammer, the Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot, National Reviews Washington editor Robert Costa, former CNN co-host Kathleen Parker, and Byron York of the Washington Examiner. In May, the White House held a session on Benghazi on deep background. In September, Obama met with select reporters to discuss the situation in Syria.

Bring your own Vaseline?
The midterm election campaign begins.
And before anybody scoffs, remember what they did in 2012.
Juan was never a Journalist.
He is a token at Fox who doesn’t even realize his tokenism.
He isn’t very bright, but he can spew the racial vomit with the best of them.
Always had this attachment to Obama’s buttocks, it’s like a genome that blacks have, they are connected by this cord that was attached to them at birth, and taught them by parents and acquaintances. A very few can break that cord and be successful, smart, great men and women. But for the majority, they cannot kick it.
“What can we do for you, Mr. President?” Yeah, this is real “watchdog” journalism. What a joke.
Barry’s chestnuts have been roasted. He needs his toads of very little intelligence to pull them out of the fire.
Lay around the shanty, and get a good buzz on.
So the White House considers being ‘’in full fight mode’’ to mean talking with Juan Williams and Ed Schultz?! What happens if things really start going bad? Will Whoopie Goldberg and Bill Maher parachute in?
“Journ-0-list 2014. The midterm election campaign begins. And before anybody scoffs, remember what they did in 2012.”
Damned straight; watch how the ObamaCare fiasco is spun into a greedy capitalist plot (Obama didn’t know the insurance companies would try to cheat Americans like that...). The 2012 election showed how the media absolutely dominates elections in this country, and people shouldn’t assume they can’t do it again.
More of a delivery of Marching Orders. Ezra had a stupid article up on the RCP(Real Clear Politics) site this afternoon. Essentially blaming Republicans back in 2009 and saying they’re plan was essentially the same thing as 0bamacare.
Here’s Ezra’s spin I referred to in my last post..Link only..
Hugo Chavez used the media in much the same manor. Whores all of them.
They INSULT the intelligence of the very audience they are trying to reach, and turn off every one else.
Obama has given Conservatives plenty of ammunition to use against him and his party--but the only anti-Obama ads I've seen are AWFUL!!!!
They are NOT Journalists if it’s off the Record , they are Collaborators
Lets start with the midterms..Pelosi and Reid have some zingers in their time in office. A short clip of a string of Republican attempts at participation in government and a short clip of Reid’s collective “NO”, “Dead on arrival” “Non-starter” after each one would/should scare everyone to the pols to make sure he loses his job as Majority Leader. And remind everyone of Pelosi the cuckoo clock, finish with her march up those Capitol steps with that #$$#$*Q&* mallet. Finish with the question: “Is this really what you want?” or “Pelosi, part deux” or something clever. “If you don’t then keep so and so in place or say no to whoever the Dem candidate is.” There’s soooo much material in their abysmal records to work with out there, the commercials would never have to repeat. There’s some good social media folks on our side, too..they could do this easily. Just a suggestion and my own $.02
He’s always been 0’s buttboy.....
LOL @ these fools.
I honestly want to know why such a despicable person as Ed Schultz is allowed in the White House? If memory serves Jay-Z has also been a personal guest. Is Obama really that low class? This is troubling in the extreme. Schultz called Laura Ingraham a “talk slut” and Jay-Z refers to women as bitches and hos. And Obama and his sycophantic lickspittles have the temerity to speak of the Republican war on women.
>> Juan was never a Journalist.
NO ONE in that list is a journalist.
Any more than Josef Goebbels was a journalist.
>> Is Obama really that low class?
Rhetorical question, yes?
Of course the blue lipped Kenyan monkey is that low class.
The fact that they’re commissioning the most left wing hacks with the new messaging campaign means they are catching a lot of flack from even their most rabid left wing base.
I mean, how many people actually watch O’Donnell and Schultz - a few thousand a night?
"full fight mode over the Affordable Healthcare Act right now.
The word has gone out, stop calling it ObamaCare, it's embarrassing.
