President Obama held an off-the-record meeting with MSNBC hosts and liberal pundits on Thursday, POLITICO has learned.
Present at the meeting: MSNBC’s Ed Schultz and Lawrence O’Donnell, Washington Post economics blogger Ezra Klein, Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn, Talking Points Memo editor and publisher Josh Marshall, ThinkProgress editor-in-chief Judd Legum, Atlantic senior editor Garance Franke-Ruta, Salon political writer Brian Beutler and Fox News contributor Juan Williams.
The participants agreed to an off-the-record classification for the meeting, though sources familiar with President Obama’s remarks said that Williams later appeared on Fox News and cited some of the president’s remarks, which he attributed to administration officials.
The White House did not respond to a request for comment regarding the meeting.
Just remember. Nothing that the One does is about politics.
After Jim Treacher, doing amazing investigative journalism by actually reading Dreams From My Father, exposed B. Hussein as a dog eater, do you suppose Bill Ayers received a call from the White House? Obama: Jesus Christ, Bill, WTF? Did you have to put that dog-eating thing in there? Ayers: Dude, I told you to read the final draft carefully. Is it my fault that you said you weren’t up for it because you were working on ways to put the gun industry out of business or something? Not my problem.
Jesus, Ayers, did you have to put that dog-eating stuff in the book?
No matter what Lawrence O’Donnell or Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D-Montana) say about how weird Mormonism is, if you ask me the guy who comes from a family of dog-eaters has more explaining to do.
Did anyone ever answer the question that Obama asked during Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, “Why is she famous?” referring to Kim Kardashian. I didn’t think so.
Who is more insane: Dan Rather or Keith Olbermann?
Has Michelle Obama ever asked David Axelrod why he has 14 chins?
If you thought that with the resignation of Lois Lerner the use of the IRS as a cudgel against the Regime's "enemies" (as in you) had ended, think again. Our friends at Illinois Review report on a stunning coincidence; that is, right after a cancer patient Bill Elliott told Fox News about losing his health insurance, and insurance C. Steven Tucker contacted Mr. on Facebook to help him out, both of them are facing IRS audits. Amazing! You think that once Obamacare is in full force decisions about who will be treated and who won't will be based on politics? Silly, Bitter Clinger! Don't you worry your empty head!
Another great blog that I stumbled on. I love Brittany Pounder's piece about her family's Christmas Challenge. Please check it out to read some terrific commentary from a Constitutional Conservative perspective.
