    Obama has hired Jesse Lee to combat people who tell the truth about Obama:

    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.

    This tells me that the admin is insecure and afraid.

    If this were an episode of "The Sopranos", Mr. Lee's character would be known as Knuckles or Rocco.

    Indeed. That is the most egregious aspect of this.

    This position belongs as part of his campaign staff, not on the taxpayer payroll...if it is going to exist at all.

    The function is simply an on line press secretary. Nothing new.

    hello;

    The Obama administration has created and staffed a new position tucked inside their communications shop for helping coordinate rapid response to unfavorable stories and fostering and improving relations with the progressive online community.

    White House Beefs Up Online Rapid Response


    now, if bush had a guy staffed up being paid by the gov. whose was there to guard the gate and keep the cons in line and pushing back on "unfavorable stories" I would say same, not on my dime. If he is NOT on our dime, hey have at it.....
