President Obama met with a litany of liberal media personalities on Tuesday to push his tax cut message.

Spotted filing into the West Wing were Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Ed Schultz and Al Sharpton.

The meeting was not on the president’s public schedule and White House officials initially declined to comment on the meeting. They later issued a statement to POLITICO:

“This afternoon at the White House, the President met with influential progressives to talk about the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families, strengthening our economy and adopting a balanced approach to deficit reduction,” spokesman Josh Earnest said.

The Obama administration conducts regular briefings of reporters from different media markets, but this did not immediately appear like such a briefing. According to White House visitor records, O’Donnell, for example, has not attended such briefings before.


Here is Laurence O’Donnell’s attack on Ann Romney and use of Horses as therapy for her MS:

And FOX News’ Neil Cavuto, himself suffering with MS, strikes back:

NOTE: For those interested, NEWSBUSTERS is reporting that O’Donnell’s patriotic contribution during the Vietnam War was COLLEGE DEFERMENTS.

from Real Clear Politics:

Van Jones, president of the progressive organization Rebuild the Dream, joins The Last Word to discuss what Washington should be doing about jobs. Jones calls the US’ deficit problem “phony” and made up.

“Hold on to your hats, we’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and rescue America’s middle class,” Jones told MSNBC’s “The Last Word.”

Jones warns of an “American Fall” like there was an Arab Spring.

Jones was President Obama’s “green jobs czar” until he resigned in fall of 2009.

     Until MSNBC’s Laurence O’Donnell took over bobble-head Olbermann’s 8PM time slot, and began trying to emulate the sports broadcaster, I had a respect for his positions. Though for 99% of them I disagree with him, he always seemed to present them in a good way, and “seemed” to show respect to the opposing his viewpoint.

       But just weeks into his new time slot, he has taken on the Olbermann persona, and is already intolerable.

       Ann Coulter recently entered the O’Donnell “Lion Den”, and was challenged about her support of NJ Gov. Chris Christie.

     NBC’s anchors and commentators’ political views are clearly on the left side. No one disputes that fact. But in its  attempt to be “unbiased”, the NBC policies forbid the likes of Keith Olbermann from making political campaign contributions.

     So, upon learning that Olbermann had contributed to THREE Democratic campaigns, he has been suspended indefinitely without pay.

Now, Ms. Abrams, a middle-class mother and wife, is under attack from the leftist wing, just like “Joe the Plumber”.
