Let the whining begin.
White House rejects Cheney's Afghanistan criticism
"What Vice President Cheney calls dithering, President Obama calls his solemn responsibility to the men and women in uniform and to the American public,"White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said. "I think we've all seen what happens when somebody doesn't take that responsibility seriously."
Obama is nearing a decision on whether to significantly expand the U.S. war posture in Afghanistan by honoring a military request for thousands of additional forces. The decision had been expected as early as mid-August, when Obama's new war commander prepared a harsh assessment of deteriorating conditions in the 8-year-old conflict, and now is expected in what Gibbs calls "the coming weeks."
Cheney had also taken issue with statements out of the White House that the Obama administration had to start from scratch to develop a strategy for a conflict begun in 2001, the first year of the Bush presidency.
The Bush administration presented to Obama's transition team the review of the Afghanistan war that it undertook just before leaving office and was asked to keep it under wraps,Cheney said. A White House spokesman, Tommy Vietor, later disputed that characterization and said the report was not kept under wraps.
Thugocracy...Obama White House Trys To Exlude Fox News From Pay Czar Interviews
I can't find anything online yet (video now below the fold) but Fox is reporting on Special Report that the White House wanted to exclude Fox from the 5 member White House Pool who were going to be given access to Kenneth Feinberg.
The White House Pool, of which Fox has been a member since 1997, is a consortium of the five networks which fund its operations.
After theWhite House attempted to exclude Fox, the Washington bureau chiefs of the 5 networks met and announced none of them would participate if Fox were excluded.
It's amazing we are in the position we are. We have a President who is more interested in talking to murders around the world but is afraid to face a reporter who isn't enthralled with the crease of his pants.
Kliphnote:Obama and his team remind me of children. " Mommy, Bobby is picking on me". "I didn't do it, Bobby did it" "It's not my fault, Bobby did it" Whine, whine, whine. Babies.
Every other network is cheering Obama on. So Obama attacks the only one that isn't. As I have said before, if you don't like Fox, don't watch. Go watch CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNBC, read NY Times, Boston Globe. Chicago Tribune, Buffalo News, LA Times, etc.
Read on-line the same and the Huffington Post and the Daily Kos.
Just don't watch FOX. Simple as that. Than stop your bitching.
BTW. Don't listen to Rush Limbaugh. Listen to Al Franken instead.
Still reminds me of a union guy I worked with. He said "Every time I hear Limbaugh he
just lies." I asked him when does he hear him, your out of work at 4 and he is off the air at 3. He didn't know what to say.
I just get a kick out it. Fox News is the most watched, by far. And Limbaugh is the most listened to, by far. And Obama and his bots hate them both. Kind of funny, to me. ha,ha
Also this is the same bunch that hated Bush, hated Cheney, hated Rove, hated Palin. But now when it's turnabout it's not fair. Get over it. Ha,ha,ha
