A White House Without Prestige
After previously picking a fight with Rush Limbaugh, the White House has now officially confronted CNBC financial reporter Rick Santelli. I don't think it's about a White House that wants to oppose Santelli, as opposed to a plumber. Although I might be concerned about any private info on file with the government were I Santelli. I think we're seeing a WH that looks like it's being run more like a Chicago Ward, than the house that most presidents lived in. This is about attacking everyone and everything that opposes you. In the end, it demeans the office and raises serious concerns as to whether these people can be trusted with the power they now have.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs jumped at the chance Friday to rebuke a CNBC reporter whose attack on President Barack Obama’s anti-foreclosure plan caught fire on the Internet.
