The White House has named ,partisan blogger, Jesse Lee to a new position within its communications department:
According to The Huffington Post, Lee will essentially be responsible for building up Obama’s online presence as he prepares for his reelection bid, and squashing any negative stories...
"The post is a new one for this White House. Rapid response has usually been outsourced to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), if not done on an ad-hoc basis by administration officials. And it signals that the White House will be adopting a more aggressive defense of the president and his policies as his re-election campaign gears up."
Do you think his actions paint a pretty clear picture of him and people are entitled to their opinion of him? Do you at least give Obama points for his transparency in being THIS partisan with White House positions?

He should be more worried about doing his job instead of traveling and scolding other countries. He is trying to take the focus off of himself by finding other people to demonize. Typical.

Daily, it's getting harder and harder for Obama and others to defend him or be on the defense for him. I think that is clear simply by what we see on CM here, the liberals even the dirtiest fighters no longer defend him. Hell, one of them was considering Ron Paul 2 weeks ago. Anyway, if the information is managed or rearranged constructively, the constant defending of Obama will be minimized. And I would assume that is just part of the re election campaign. Obama is going to have to be put into a whole new box for 2012 even if that means changing his words and putting opposing thoughts into readers heads. When obama campaigned in 08 he was a master at insinuating or reinforcing the beliefs that his supporters already held. Reaffirming core beliefs subconsciously if you will. Now, they will be actively altering persons memories and beliefs about him. Creating a new man if you will. JMHO

Just more editing, distortion of facts, telling us what PBO meant to say, what we should have gotten from the mumbo-jumbo, and making him look appealing to the younger voter. I damn sure home that young doesn't mean 'can be lead around by the ring in their noses', because w need people who can think for themselves voting this time.
