White House confirms: the #obamacare signup numbers are really, really bad.
Which is why they won’t release them for at least a month. The Obama administration is not planning on releasing enrollment numbers on Obamacare until November, senior administration officials said Monday, as they continued to insist that delays with the healthcare.gov website were entirely the result of high volume. “We will release monthly data when it is available,” a senior administration official told CNN. “We | Read More »
Quote AND Tweet of the Day, Nobody @BarackObama Knows Has Troubles edition.
First, the quote, from the Wall Street Journal: Said a senior administration official: “We are winning…It doesn’t really matter to us” how long the shutdown lasts “because what matters is the end result.” Ah, those Ascended Beings and hyper-geometric messaging geniuses over at the White House. But, alas, I cannot beat Jake Tapper’s (apparent) reaction to that line: There's a definition of "winning" being used | Read More »
Choreographing The News On The DOJ’s AP Investigation With Media Matters
While the ORS* busies itself with the deliberate political harassment of Barack Obama’s political opponents, his Department of Justice seems to be busily engaged in doing similar things to members of the previously untouchable 4th Estate. Some of these previously loyal Professional Democratic Party Activists with press credentials have the utter effrontery to have gotten their backs up. Jake Tapper sticks it to Jay Carney in the exchange below.
Jake Tapper, the senior White House correspondent for ABC News, asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney how public support of those journalists’ work “square[s] with the fact that this administration has been so aggressively trying to stop aggressive journalism in the United States by using the Espionage Act to take whistleblowers to court. There just seems to be a disconnect here,” Tapper added. “You want aggressive journalism abroad; you just don’t want it in the United States.”
(HT: Huffington Post)
As the vassals of Barack Obama busily minding the 4th Estate threaten to go rogue and commit spontaneous acts of professional reportage, the alarm claxon sounds and the highly trained manipulators of Media Matters man the trebuchets in defense of the empire. They tell us all what key issues must be raised. A discussion can’t flow freely – it must be channelized in the manner suggested below.

Jake Tapper politely calls Barack Obama, Mike Bloomberg pig-ignorant about guns.
Before you watch the video below, I invite you to first get a glass of something nice – why not? It’s Friday afternoon; the sun is over the yardarm somewhere – so that you may properly enjoy this next bit from Jake Tapper. He’s reporting on the strange inability of Barack Obama and Mike Bloomberg to publicly understand the difference between an automatic and a | Read More »
Jay Carney pretty much flubs everything about Operation Fast & Furious.
This is going to be a very visual post, and, as usual, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney provides little if any actual semantic content, so I will simply summarize each video. First off, we have the standard obfuscation:
White House advises Senate to not lead in an election year
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) asked Ben Bernanke at the recent Senate Budget Committee if the lack of Presidential leadership was hurting the US economy. He asked, “I’m afraid President Obama has just been phoning it in here the last couple years in terms of our debt and deficit issue. … Can you speak to how harmful that is in terms of economic growth?” Now Bernanke | Read More »
Let Chris be Christie
Mark Levin has a Facebook post that takes a critical look at some comments New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made in his appearance on This Week this past Sunday. Levin is concerned that Christie is soft on immigration and Obamacare. “Regarding the former, he sounds like John McCain three years ago. ‘Commonsense path to citizenship.’ Regarding the latter, the cost of joining with the other | Read More »

WH demonstrates that it can read immigration polling.
Like a large section of the right-blogosphere, I like Jake Tapper while being slightly resentful that I have to. It’s nothing against the man; Jake’s a good guy who will do things like this. TAPPER: You’ve said we’re a nation of cowards because we don’t talk freely and openly about race. So in that spirit, let me give it a shot. Do you think the | Read More »
