    and communicated better with people than Obama.
    Bush made fun of the press and never spoke to an audience that wasn't hand picked.

    Steve Thomma on GEM$NBC is fugging crazy.

    2. More Revisionist Bullshit

    ...and looks like it's not working. Boooshie's book is tanking and his spinsters can't make a rose out of this turd; even rushpublicans still look back on the idiot son and consider him a failure. There's a reason they waited until after the election to let this crap escape.

    10. It Maybe True If You Consider ...

    IMO, that Prez Obama's Press Secretary is dull and lack fluency in the way he sells the administration. Yes Shrub brought in a log of media spinners but they did their selling job with gusto and some believability such that they were able to sell lies and falsehood to the vast majority of the brain-dead. In addition, it seem that Obama himself does not feel comfortable in a press conference setting - he'll rather prefer campaign/town-hall setting where he connects more on emotion or a lecturing setting where he can be professorial and these do not lend the opportunity to sell the everyday things the WH has to sell to get people to support them.
    Maybe it is because the administration is divided on what direction it wants to go - seeking bipartisanship (i.e. keep licking rethug a**) or being bold and call the shot when they have to and negotiate from strength as democrats standing on principles. Their message has been murky and unsure. They have been misfiring and therefore have been tentative about being accessible to the press. Shrub and his team were constantly pulling the righwing press for all kinds assistance and coordination in getting out their message. Obama's team have not made similar efforts and have noticeable lack of efforts towards working with progressive media outlets - the few there are in existence.
    What ignorance.

    Obama after promising the most transparent administration ever, resorted to back room deals, payoffs and arm twisting to push through a health bill that had been read by NOBODY. That's a good start. It's a sunny day. Get out of the basement.
