Career recruiters have been touting the “evils” of the social networks on the Internet for years, and have issued strong warnings in seminars and lectures on our college campuses and in our high schools. Since you never know where one’s path may take you, what is meaningless today, may haunt you tomorrow.
Case in point involves Facebook, MySpace, and one certain Obama campaign worker.
If you’ve looked at the “questionnaire” for vetting if you are interested in a position in the Obama White House, several questions pertain to the Internet. One asks what URL’s, blogs, social networks you might post, comment, or appear on. And another asks if there is anything that might cause embarassment to family, friends, or the President.
And therein lies the twist. President-Elect Obama was able to appeal to the youthful masses because of Jon Favreau. As Obama’s head speechwriter, the 27-year old graduate of Holy Cross College was able to write for Obama from the youthful perspective that brought the youth masses to his rallies. Now Obama has tagged the youthful Favreau to be the White House Director of Speechwriting.
On December 5th, this was found on Favreau’s Facebook account, and shown in the Washington Times, as well as swirling through the Internet:
Favreau is the one doing the “groping”
With Senator Clinton having been tapped to be the Secretary of State, the head of Obama’s cast of “All Star” characters, one could say that this photo of one of his key campaign staffers is a “bit of an embarassment” for the President-Elect. Favreau has already extended his apologies to Senator Clinton.
Of course, having read all of the questions on the vetting questionnaire, even President-Elect Obama could not pass his own vetting. After all, Larry Sinclair’s tell-all book is less than a month away…….. and since there’s no legal challenge to it, one could add another layer of credibility and validity to Mr. Sinclair!
