There are certain things you want a President to do when it’s clear things are going in a very bad direction in an allied country. Meet with advisers. Review contingency plans. Conduct a little back channel diplomacy.
Sure. All those things sound good.
Boogie down with Jake Tapper and do the bump with Chuck Todd?
Uh, probably not.
Yet that’s exactly what failed President Barack Obama was doing Saturday night. As much of the nation was transfixed by the images of turmoil coming across their TV screens via the cable news channels, which had all gone to live coverage of the events in Egypt, Obama was dancing the night away with his minions in the press at an event celebrating David Axelrod.
[I]t ain’t easy smacking the White House with tough stories all the time if you’re getting invited to their exclusive parties, now is it?
Also on hand were Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and Energy Secretary Steven Chu. The party was at the Washington residence of Linda Douglass, the former hard-hitting ABC reporter who dropped out of journalism to spin the health care bill out of the White House. She’s now a VP at Atlantic Media.
So we have an official with a journalism outfit – Atlantic Media – HOSTING a party for the president and his consigliere.
Of course, according to the left we shouldn’t notice this. Obama partying while Cairo burns? Totally cool. Reporters rubbing elbows and God knows what all else with those they are supposed to cover from an adversarial position? No problem. Mentioning it? A SMEAR!
