Here’s a video in which Fox newsman Shephard Smith beefs about attending a White House lunch and getting an insulting placecard:
As Reverb Press notes after reporting the outrage of conservative news outlets:
The question isn’t whether dropping ‘news’ from the placecards of Fox anchors is ‘childish’ or ‘petty’. The question is: Why are bozos like Shepard Smith and Bret Baier even invited to a White House press luncheon?
And you remember this from Obama’s State of the Union address?
The gloves are clear off for Obama—or so I hope. Not that this will eliminate the Congressional gridlock during the next two years: given the majority of Republicans in both houses of Congress, there’s little hope of that. Republicans will continue to produce untenable legislation against civil rights, abortion, and national health care, and Obama will continue to veto it.
I’m all for democracy, but it isn’t getting much done in the U.S. Blame the Republicans and their hatred of the President, a hatred so deep that they can’t even compromise with Democrats.
