The Obama Administration: Biggest Bunch of Crybabies, Evah

What White House in anyone's recent or even not-recent memory has had better, more favorable coverage from the press that this Obama administration has had since Day One. Evidently, however, ObamaTeam wants all positive coverage all the time. A recent Time magazine article (8 Oct 2009) titled "Calling 'Em Out: The White House Takes on the Press" indicates that the crybabies in the White House are mad as hell and they're going to stamp their little feet until this negative coverage of Obama stops.

Last month Chris Wallace at Fox News called the ObamaTeam the biggest bunch of crybabies he's worked with in thirty years of journalism in Washington, D.C. Who is the "Biggest Crybaby" of all on ObamaTeam? There would be a lot of competition for that title, but the Time article emphasizes the role of White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, pictured here, a "veteran campaign strategist," and the "general" in the war on the negative media, says Time, who arrived at the Obama White House in May. Dunn's ties to Obama go back to 2004, which in ObamaYears is a very long time, considering his short political career. Time describes Dunn as a "fierce critic" of Fox News: "It's opinion journalism masquerading as news," Dunn says. "They are boosting their audience. But that doesn't mean we are going to sit back."

If the interview I found with Dunn is typical of her personality, then the fact is, this woman whines a lot. She looks depressed in the interview with Lois Romano, Washington Post Staff Writer. Maybe she was exhausted or was just having a bad day. Whatever the reason, she comes across as unlikable in this interview, which seems strange for someone who holds the position of Communications Director.

So was Anita Dunn the brilliant strategist who advised Obama not to go on Fox News with Chris Wallace when he went on five Sunday morning news shows? Evidently so. As the posters over at HotAir are saying, "Incredible as it seems, we may be nearing the point where the White House starts blaming Obama’s political failures on … a biased media."
