Obama's Media Hairdo

Barack Obama held another off-the-record 2-hour lunch with bloggers and columnists, Sister Todjah reports:
No word yet on how the sour grapes tasted.

This is becoming a regular occurrence, isn’t it? What’s happening with this WH? Are they so concerned now about MSM journalists like Jake Tapper asking them tough questions that they’ve taken to meeting “off-the-record” with liberal talking heads (and David Brooks – I know, same thing) in an effort to get “the real truth” out? Answer: Most likely. Hell, that’s why they’re pretty much boycotting Fox News at this point, and demanding that other liberals follow suit or else, because they can’t stand the heat and prefer “friendlier” news outlets, so it only stands to reason that the same rule applies here with these “off-the-record” chit chats where no one outside of the “inner circle” knows what was said. But of course, the “scratch my back, I’ll scratch your back” rule applies here. Write a favorable column, or say favorable things about the administration on either your show or a show where you’re a guest, and you’ll continue to get invited to “off-the-record” WH get togethers.

So much for “open government, accountable only to the people.”
Love that first line, but I'm not sure the big issue is open government.

To me, it's Obama's obsession with image. Like the girl looking in the mirror who cannot seem to get that last strand of hair in just the right place, Obama never is satisfied with his media image.

Fox News is the stray strand in Obama's otherwise perfectly coiffed media hairdo, and the more Obama obsesses over that slight imperfection, the worse he looks.

  1. Don't worry, I know what they were talking about. Obama said,
    "Did you hear what happened to Barney Frank?" and everyone else was incredulous - INCREDULOUS!
    Then Obama said, "Does anyone here know what one of those pot plants looks like? I've never seen one. Does it look like a pot?"
    Immediately, all the sycophants and myrmidons who had up to this point been sitting adoringly in a circle about their leader, scattered to locate information about this enigma.

  2. "Obama's media hairdo"! love it hahaha right on point

  3. OT: Blogs are starting to light up about the fact President George Bush and Laura have spent several hours at Fort Hood honoring those senselessly masscared by an unhinged nut while Obama spends his time breaking Democrat arms to force them to vote to destroy the best health care system ever known.

    When that's done, he's going to Camp David to relax. The disgraceful commander in chief is AWOL.

  4. I dread the Obama Circus when the memorials for the fallen begin.

    Maybe he'll just let it pass with an oozy word or two, as he did in June when an Army Private was slaughtered by a convert to Islam in Little Rock.

  5. Anyone watch the premiere of "V" this past week? Obama's media strategy reminds me of the Visitors demanding that they are only asked 'friendly' questions during an interview.
