The Mainstream Media’s Roll in Obama’s Health Reform Troubles
The media has been using White House talking points to sell President Obama’s health reform plan, and it has had the opposite effect — polls are dropping. President Obama is worse off than GW Bush was at this point in the Bush presidency, and on health care, President Obama is sinking even faster. What the media fails to realize is that their non-critical reporting on | Read More »
Today’s the day for the budget reduction report!
You remember: back in April the President called on the Cabinet to reduce the budget by 100 million. True, it was immediately pointed out that this would be roughly equivalent to… well, we’ll let Political Math explain it*: …still, every little – every very, very, very little – bit helps, right? So, today’s the day that we hear about those cuts! White House misses deadline | Read More »
North Korean nuclear test successful?
Well, they’re claiming that it was, and there’s evidence that it happened in the form of an earthquake,so that’s how everyone is betting. Japan is calling for an emergency UNSC meeting; South Korea, dealing simultaneously with this and the suddenly-more-murky suicide of its former President, is doing the same. The White House hasn’t put up the President’s official statement on this yet, but you can | Read More »

White House Confuses Hillary Clinton With Sex Worker
That’s Hillary. Mrs. Clinton if you’re nasty. Yesterday, in what is the latest in a long, hard series of bungles by the White House, reporters who called for an “on-the-record briefing call with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton” were offered the opportunity to provide a credit card if they felt like “getting nasty.” According to Fox News, the White House distributed an email to the | Read More »
White House happy card check failing?
Let’s be clear. Barack Obama has an agenda. He wants to tax our energy and put the government in control of our health care. Given all the damage that Obama wants to do to our economy through these, card check just isn’t that high on his priority list. MSNBC has it: *** Card check’s death? Did the legislative battle over the Employee Free Choice Act | Read More »

I’m Special: I Got a Letter from the White House
Alas, it was not signed by president Obama, instead, it is signed by his Director of Correspondence, who I assume is building name recognition for a future run for office. The card could only have been in response to the form I filled out on the WH web site (I’ve done this about 6 times), as the WH public fax number is always busy (on | Read More »

Victimology: Whitehouse.gov (Michelle) Asks: Did you know that African American slaves helped to build this house?
Whitehouse.gov: Did you know that African American slaves helped to build this House? So Michelle asked a class of visiting school children.

Geez, the new Whitehouse.gov site is just plain *bad*.
It was Mary Katherine Ham’s article that tipped me to the problem: Barack Obama’s administration may be promising the “greatest ethical standard ever administered to an executive branch,” and increased transparency over his predecessor, but it seems to be forgoing at least one transparency practice that was routine in the Bush White House— transcripts of the daily press briefing. It’s been four days since Press | Read More »
