White House Got Some Say Over Journalistís Obama Story
The Weekly Standard ^ | 9/11/12 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 09/11/2012 11:04:00 AM PDT by NowApproachingMidnight

Mr. Lewis said there was one particularly moving exchange with the president that he wished he could have described in greater detail. But the White House nixed the idea, perhaps wary of having the commander in chief described as in tears.

Mr. Lewis declined to delve into too much detail because he said he did not want to violate the ground rules he agreed to, but he did offer that the president explained to him how the job exacts a heavy emotional toll.

Actually what is shocking in this story is a the “reporter” admits to allowing the White House to edit his story. They have gotten so brazen they no longer even try to hide the fact they actively coordinate their coverage of 0 with the campaign.

Let's show this sissy the door in 2012.

And take that Republican crying sissy Boehner with him. It was a better world when crying would cost you a chance at the Presidency, like it did Muskie.

He’s crying because he’s overwhelmed:

1.) W O R K
2.) A C C O U N T A B I L I T Y

It’s all NEW to him!

It’s the big, bad REAL WORLD of the grown ups.

Misleading title of article. Vague. Not much meat on those bones. Ok, he tear’d up over a movie and then there was some other time but the White House nixed a description of the details.

LOL

We need WARRIORS.

Enough of these metrosexual, touchy-feely pukes.

"the president explained to him how the job exacts a heavy emotional toll."

Yeah, it must exact a really heavy emotional toll when you can't go golfing every day.

Face it Mr. Lewis. He wasn't crying over any emotional toll from doing the job, because he's never done it. He's crying because he knows his ass is getting booted in November. Plain and simple.

What was there in Obama’s background that gave ANYONE the impression that he was up for the job?

His month making cones at Baskin-Robbins?

His leadership of the Choom gang?

HE GAVE A SINGLE SPEECH at the 2004 Dem Convention, that he didn’t even write.

“president told Mr. Lewis how one evening after a particularly trying day, he sat down to watch a movie and surprised himself by suddenly tearing up.”

Has anyone, ever in their entire life, heard of one heterosexual man speaking in this way to another heterosexual man?

I certainly haven't. It sounds like Obama was trying yo get a gay sympathy reaction from Mr. Lewis.

I wonder if it worked.

Obama, “I'm so lonely, my job is so hard, no one loves me. I cry my eyes out every night. I need someone to love me, someone to hold me. Is that so bad?”

Lewis, “There, there. Let me give you a big hug.”

Obama, “Don't stop holding me, please.”

Oh, please, a day that started at, what, 11:00 and ended at 5:00??!! He was probably sitting down to this movie by 6:30pm after having had dinner with his family. This is nothing but propaganda meant to play on the heartstrings of emoting women voters and men who are getting nearly as bad. I can't stand it anymore.

"Has anyone, ever in their entire life, heard of one heterosexual man speaking in this way to another heterosexual man?"

Maybe it was a composite experience, like all the other ones he created in his bio. You know, like when he sat on the toilet and cried because he had a particularly hard bowel movement, but then combined the movie viewing with the bowel movement, and came up with crying while watching a movie.
