Useless to WHOM?...
The original stimulus spending became part of the new baseline, and has been part of every continuing resolution. This is where your trillion dollar deficits come from and why there has been no budget in four years.
Our Useless White House Press Corps
Other than really, really stupid questions and “softball” inquires, the normal democrat voter is actually perplexed, stymied, and overwhelmed by anything more complex than a three word sentence based upon the level of a three year old child’s understanding.
Worse yet, anything said by King Obama and his surrogates are flat out lies or “canned” propaganda.
I believe that a press conference that is turned into a media porn video with Obama and Helen Thomas would be the equivalent of what we now see at each and every press fiasco.
OH GUY ! GUY ! Obama already explained what they were...He read it off the TOTUS remember ?? IT’’S THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS CORPSE..see how quickly kids forget....
The Left allows no dissension, no serious questioning of the One, & punishes both as treason. Given that the media is overwhelmingly liberal, a reporter incurring the One’s ire could wind up as a paper folder in Podunk.
Sequester would be bad for this reason
Sequester would be painful for that reason
People would suffer this other reason
Then they noted that the President was hoping that enough public outrage might really put pressure on congress (*cough* Republicans *cough*) to change their entire attitude.
Then they listed a couple more examples of how Sequester will be bad and painful.
I think the hosts were trying to help the White House by stirring up public outrage and trying to get people to voice their support for Obama by contacting politicians (*cough* Republicans *cough*). I think I just saw naked propaganda from the official White House news service. But it's just so hard to be really sure.
Let’s not forget the many lies of omission as well. He made a big deal about how he was interested in a Republican plan that closed a lot of loopholes but had been pulled back, “Boehner himself listed them for me” or something like that, but didn’t mention that that Republican plan required matching spending cuts, which is why he never went for it.
The White House Press Corps is worse than that. They're part of the fifth-column media buttboys to Traitorobama.
The American press is the enemy of the people.
Let me get this straight: The “Evil Republicans” are the cause of an $85 billion cut in a non-existent budget....
..and Obama just gave a $60 billion aid package to the Muslim Brotherhood backed Syrian rebels......
The white house press corps became useless when the information age evolved. It is an archaic piece of make work and benefits no one except those members of the press who work for perks and the applause of their peers.
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.
"There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty_four hours my occupation would be gone.
"The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
"We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
You can only get the real news from people who don't get paid to report it. Thank God for the Internets!
Soros bought out these morons long ago.
It’s a corpse.
