White House Press Secretary

Robert Gibbs met with a delegation from the White House press corps for 75 minutes on Thursday in an effort to improve frayed relations between the two sides.

Ed Chen, a White House correspondent for Bloomberg News who is president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, said he asked for the meeting “to clear the air because in my 10-plus years at the White House, rarely have I sensed such a level of anger, which is wide and deep, among members over White House practices and attitude toward the press.”

Chen said he feels “very good about the collegial give and take.

“We had a very good exchange with Robert,” Chen said. “He stayed overtime, and thus was late for his next meeting.” LINK
Wow is this stunning. 75 minutes. That’s how long the MSM gets with the White House Press Secretary for a “redress of grievances” so to speak. 75 minutes and I’ll bet there wasn’t a single hard-hitting, substantive question asked. It looks as if average American citizens aren’t the only people fed up with the Obama regime and their out right disregard for not only law but customs and courtesies as well. And just think the White House Press Corps is in the tank for Obama to begin with! Ha! How funny is that? Not to worry though as it was a "collegial give and take".

In Obama’s Amerika only foreign dictators are bow-worthy. Only America haters and two-bit dictators or those Senators willing to sell out their constituents get the red carpet treatment. Heads of state of democratic allies get short shrift and VHS tapes of Obama giving a speech (or some other such nonsense).

To the radical left intellectuals currently in charge, American people are serfs to be absorbed into the collective welfare state. Those who recoil at the thought and dare to speak out against it are demonized by some of the very same people who are now complaining that they feel some sort of way.

It’s sadly ironic that at a time when the MSM is having their own petty battles with the White House, they characterize average Americans who disagree with this regime on important, substantive issues as anything but patriotic. Racists, terrorists, anti-immigrant, anti-charity you name it, it’s been hurled at the members of the Tea Party movement. It’s done with the blessing of the same MSM who are now in a huff because Obama has breached some made up, inside the beltway, meaningless, protocol that exists solely for the self-aggrandizement of the journalists who write fluff pieces about this administration. Does it get more vapid than that? More unpatriotic? Not in my book.

    The simpleton Birthers along with the Tea baggers are the same whiners that were crying when the McCain/Bailin ticket lost. Now that their yelling and screaming failed to stop the health care debate and the bill from passing they are crying again. Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. The Republicans are good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. Instead of participating in the health care debate of ideas the Republicans party turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy roots). In my opinion the Republican Waterloo loss was caused by the party allowing a small portions (but very loud) of the republican party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to take over their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. Although some Republicans are trying to distant themselves from this fringe most of them, having no game plan/ vision for our country, are just going along and fanning the flames. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits. But they now claim they have changed, come on, what sucker is going to believe that? All I can say to you is remember Waterloo.
