Geez, what a pathetic, whiny pissant this guy is.
“All of us need to stop focusing on the lobbyists, and the bloggers, and the talking heads on radio, and the professional activists who profit from conflict, and focus on what the majority of Americans sent us here to do,” Obama continued.
Wait, the community organizer complaining about professional activists? Project much, Bammy? Now he’s just begging for more abuse.
Funny, but bloggers are all the rage when they’re a bunch of slob lefty hacks who manage to get invited to the White House.
President Obama invited a small group of five top Democratic political bloggers to a private meeting at the White House today. The group includes Joe Sudbay of AMERICAblog, John Amato of Crooks & Liars, Oliver Willis of OliverWillis.com, Barbara Morrill of DailyKos, and Duncan Black (aka Atrios) of Eschaton.
The invitations were extended late last week, and the meeting was to be a Q&A; with the President for 45 minutes, followed by 15 minutes with presidential adviser David Axelrod. No recordings are permitted, but the White House will release a transcript of the discussion after it is finished. There were no restrictions as to what could be asked. News of the meeting was embargoed by the White House until the beginning of the meeting, 3pm Eastern today.
While the President reached out to many progressive leaders immediately after the inauguration, inviting them to the White House for private meetings, cocktails and dinners, progressive bloggers were noticeably overlooked. This will be the first time that President Obama has met with progressive bloggers since taking office.
