In anticipation of a brutal 2012 re-election bid, Barack Obama has added a new position to the White House staff. Jesse Lee is now charged with crushing negative coverage of Obama online. His title is ‘Director of Progressive Media and Online Response.’
With virtually no opposition or challenge to the President offered by the mainstream media, the Obama machine has set its sights on the Internet, where there are significant demands of accountability from this Administration. If Obama can successfully smash such responsible journalism, then he will have the entirety of the news coverage in his hip pocket.
According to a story at FishbowlNY, a division of Media Bistro,
If you’re going to post something online about Obama that isn’t true, Lee is going to be the one to handle you. Considering that Lee’s first tweet about his new position included a picture of The Terminator, we suggest you watch what you say OR BE DESTROYED.
Okay that was a little dramatic, but you get the idea.
The Twitter post to which the article refers uses a picture of the Terminator to describe Lee’s approach. That tweet can be viewed here.
However, the problem with this new position and approach online is not that the machine wishes to counter untruths about Obama. To the contrary, their problem is with those who tell the truth and those who challenge the President on a plethora of issues that the mainstream media has allowed to pass without so much as a flinch.
The Obama White House is famous for its spin of its failures, mistakes, miscues, and bungled policies that have weakened the nation. Statistics on inflation, housing, jobs, and growth in the economy are constantly manipulated to put Obama in a positive light. Food and energy costs, for example, which are skyrocketing, are not even included in the calculation for the inflation index. The economy is not rebounding from the recession as often claimed. Joblessness continues to increase, with the exception of a few months of supposedly ‘hopeful signs’ that are actually the result of the unemployed giving up on finding a job. The length of time it takes to find employment is at one of the highest levels in U.S. history.
All of this, of course, is explained away by slick smooth-talkers within the Administration, and slobbering media lapdogs who still act as though Obama is the Messiah.
And when it appears as if the public is turning on him, Obama always finds a diversionary tactic to shift public attention, such as going on a bragging tour about ‘getting bin Laden,’ and making a trip to Europe to claim his Irish heritage, and bragging with British Prime Minister Cameron that they ‘are like Reagan and Thatcher.’
Thus, Mr. Lee is going after those of us who call out Obama on such shameful displays.
But a fair warning is in order. We who are gravely concerned about the present state of the country and its future will continue to call out this President and his Administration, and even Mr. Lee when the situation warrants it. We will see how far he goes in attempting to silence all critics.
