The White House Hires ‘Terminator’ to Squash Online Critics

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Online critics of President Obama take note.

In the lead up to the reelection campaign, the White House has hired some cat named Jesse Lee to a new position within the communications department titled Director of Progressive Media & Online Response.

According to FishbowlNY:

Lee’s new gig will be to plump up Obama’s online presence as he enters the 2012 reelection season and squash any negative online stories:

The post is a new one for this White House. Rapid response has usually been outsourced to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), if not done on an ad-hoc basis by administration officials. And it signals that the White House will be adopting a more aggressive defense of the president and his policies as his re-election campaign gears up.

Apparently, the subtext is Lee is going to be the one to handle you. Considering that his first tweet about his new position includes a picture of The Terminator.

Well, all I can say is, BRING IT ON, and make sure you spell my name correctly.

    Why am I not surprised? After I watched Obama’s emotional meltdown when the Dallas political reporter named Brad Watson dared to correct his spin on the size of his loss in Texas, I realized Obama has a very thin skin. The strange thing is, usually a president grows in stature the longer they’re in office (with the exception of Nixon.) Obama’s stature seems to be shrinking. Did you catch his body language when he was schooled by Netanyahu the other day? Obama looked to be all of 14 years of age.

    This should be the start of WWIII.

    How quickly things change?

    In 2008, Obama was the first “internet president.” Collecting millions of small dollar donations from energized liberals ready to put the Bush nightmare behind them.

    In 2012, the internet represents a threat to Obama and will be monitored for pests who no longer feel the need to genuflect before his greatness.

    Jesse Lee v. 71 million bloggers? Does he have a death wish?

  6. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    O-bummer hasn’t turned into G.W.Bush……. he’s turned into Richard ‘Tricky’ Niggy. I can’t wait till he has his Watergate!

    Jesse Lee has no idea what awaits him if he tries to battle bloggers like our host. This should be very interesting and amusing.

  8. How very Bushian. Well, what do you expect from a neoliberal monster?
