Obama Woos Liberal Journalists With Another Off-The-Record Meeting
breitbart ^ | 21 november 2013 | Ben shapiro

Posted on 11/22/2013 10:14:53 AM PST by gooblah

On Thursday, Fox News’ Ed Henry tweeted that MSNBC hosts Ed Schultz and Lawrence O’Donnell, 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. Obama’s signature program, Obamacare, has been flailing in the press for weeks, and Obama apparently believes that it is about time to reshift the narrative:

How much blow was consumed at this “off the record media orgy”?

If there is no record of the meeting, then what I am saying is valid until proven otherwise by them releasing a full video of said event.

They don’t need the DNC fax anymore.

They get their talking points in person, directly from the horse’s ass.

Meanwhile, in the West Wing: Ayers, Dorhn and Jarrett are giggling into their champagne flutes.

Fox should tell Juan they’re replacing him with Jay Carney in black face. That would make Jay more legitimate than Juan.

First the Dem party, now the liberal propagandists are directed to not use “Obamacare”, use Affordable Care Act.

And a dutiful Juan Williams obeys.

Off the record ?

Given that Ed Schultz was in attendance and his ratings are in the tank, I would not be surprised if he discloses much of what was discussed in order to build credibility among his dying audience.

So you’re accusing JuanWilliams of being capable of “strategy.”? This bunch is pretty much limited to lint balls and navel gazing. My jaws hurt.

This sort of things works...or used to work...when dealing with abstract news.

Joe The Plumber gives the benefit of the doubt to the newsie spin when the talking heads are talking about some problem in a far off land, for example.

...but 0bamacare isn’t a problem in a far off land. It isn’t abstract.

0bamacare is *directly* impacting Americans.

You can’t spin that.

Insurance policies in the millions have been and will be cancelled.

You can’t spin that.

The 0bamacare website has already facilitated identity theft for those who have signed up.

You can’t spin that.

The 0bamacare website doesn’t have a mechanism to pay insurance companies for the premium from each enrollee.

You can’t spin that when someone thought they were enrolled, only to learn that their policy was not activated (because of no payment from Healthcare.gov).

...but egos are involved. The White House doesn’t want to pull the plug on their “signature” program (even though no one cared enough about it to oversee its implementation).

Instead, they want to “spin”, patch, and kick the can down the road...a strategy that worked for them in the past (when dealing with more abstract issues).

They aren’t clever enough to see the difference this time.

They don’t realize that their spin only drags out and worsens their political environment each day that 0bamacare remains on life support.

So be it. Senator Cruz tried to kill it. If they had let him kill 0bamacare, it would have saved the Democratics’ political dominance. The public wouldn’t have seen it fail firsthand.

If Cruz had won, the American people would have been saved from 0bamacare’s failures, and Democrats would have been able to treat 0bamacare as an abstract event. Spinnable.

Too bad.

Now 0bamacare is no longer abstract. It’s real. It’s firsthand.

Can’t spin that.

Life is good.

I agree with all you have written, right down to the very last point.

But I want to warn you of something, or remind you if you already knew:

We are dealing with a Malignant Narcissist. If he feels boxed in, he WILL lash out at the public. Disruptions, disorder, suspensions of rights, and even mass deaths will result.

I had gained a bit of respect for ole Juan when he was fired from NPR for making a statement about being frightened flying with muzzies. (Key word here is 'had') He's become a buffoon and the laughing stock of Brett Baer's show and any show he appears on, now!

As you said, it's time for Fox to fire his arse! He's an embarrassment!

This is the “non-partisan media” we’ve been hearing about. State-run quislings in the media receiving their marching orders. They should be ridiculed and shunned.

Watch for buzzwords now to try to change the narrative.
