Now this is exactly what I meant Tuesday when I described to you the White House climate change strategy: Deliver the message via weather forecasters who look great on the TV and can discuss precipitation but who are incompetent as reporters.
Not that many of the reporters at the White House are much better. But in bypassing the resident press corps, the White House eliminated any chance of turbulence as it unleashed its warning of climate doom.
The White House invited her into the Rose Garden believing it had an innocent little poodle on its hands. She would help spread the word about it’s “report” on how climate change is wrecking everything and how drastic executive solutions that don’t involve pesky legislators are needed.
AND SHE ACTUALLY ASKED PRESIDENT OBAMA ABOUT THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE.
Wow, looks like I was all wrong. These weather people have the looks of Scarlett Johansson but the blood of Edward R. Murrow.
Buhhhht . . .
Watch what Obama does. He completely, utterly, and shamelessly ignores the question and simply recites his litany of climate change horrors with which he’s hoping to scare people into voting Democratic.
HE DOESN’T EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE HER QUESTION. It’s as if she asked him, What time is it? and he said, “chocolate.”
And she looked completely pleased. In fact, she then called him “sir,” and asked how he can make climate change more of a priority for her fellow Americans.
Boy, Obama sure is disciplined. I saw her hanging out at the White House yesterday. I’d have told her anything she wanted.
Anyway, looks like Carney & Crew knew what they were doing.
Maybe CBS will have Megan replace Sharyl Attkisson on the investigations beat. She’d be more to their liking, no doubt.
