Communication dept adds "Director of Progressive Media & Online Response"

The White House has named Jesse Lee to a new position within its communications department titled Director of Progressive Media & Online Response. 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.

Seriously? Maybe he is realizing he might not win re-election and is showing some desparation here!

  • At least they are not lying about the name PROGRESSIVE=COMMUNISM.

    I am appalled that our tax dollars are going to pay for the presidents personal propaganda machine. It is getting about time for a major revolt.

  • Obama can't deal with bad press... His actions have spoken to loud...... The American People are speaking back.. Loud.. And clear.... Most let their campaigns or their respective parties do this job... Nope. NOT, Obama... He has White House money burning a hole in his pocket.... So what does Obama do? Creates a White House position and hires a partisan blogger to fight his wars for him... This makes Obama look petty, inept, and foolish..... But, yet I see SOME choose to continue to give him a free pass.. Classic

  • It is so not right that taxpayers have to pay for this crap!

    I think many of us have had quite enough of the "free pass" administration!

  • Well, you are going to have to pay for it . so stop snivelling and screeching ' communist ' like a bunch of ignorant children .

    You will all get your chance to do something about it to choose a knight in shining armour at the republican convention, a nominee to save America and the Tea Party from dastardly commie conspirators . .... so you would do better to spend your time trolling to find your hero .
