Obama White House bars press from press award ceremony
"This achievement and the overall promise of his historic administration caused the National Newspaper Publishers Assn. to name him "Newsmaker of the Year." The president is to receive the award from the federation of black community newspapers in a White House ceremony this afternoon."
Folks, what is happening inside our White House? Why aren't all Press organizations permitted to cover this story? Why are people especially those in the press NOT upset and up in arms about this situation? This story is being reported by the LA Times and you can read about it here.
Heeeerrrrrrreeee's Barack! and here's where the infamous Johnny Carson theme song comes in! There are accolades from all over the place citing what a great job our President did on the Jay Leno show. (I didn't watch it!) I think NBC should give President Barack Obama his own show, a good idea for when when he loses the election in 2012. Amazing what this guy is getting away with during this critical economical time in our country. It would be like me going out and partying and yucking it up when I have a child seriously ill in the hospital! I know maybe that's a lame comparison, but folks, I expect more mature and responsible behavior from my President. This is being irresponsible and a bad joke at best.
What about the tea bags? I guess I missed this one. Recently I have talked to two friends of different lifestyles and who do not know each other and they asked if I was sending teabags to our political leaders. Both friends were very passionate about this tea bag activity and as I've read on line there are many cities who are promoting this action. Maybe if I had paid more attention to Glen Beck and the 912 happening I'd be in their loop. Here is the link to Glenn Beck's project if you are interested. As a point to know, I do recall that Glenn mentioned NOT to send the actual tea bag, rather just send the tag, because as the politician's office receive an envelope with a tea bag, it is thrown away as a precaution. We will be sending out our tea bag tags to our Nevada politicians this week.
On another point of interest on the Glenn Beck's show, he talked about Thomas Paine's book "Common Sense" and referred to a you tube video, which you can view here. (if you are unable to access through this link, go to youtube & type in Thomas Paine) It's all about a revolution to take back our country.
As a final note today, my Nevada friends have also voiced their opinion on our Senator Reid and how dissatisfied they are with what he is doing today in the Senate. One friend says she will most definitely be working hard during election season to see he doesn't get re-elected. At this point, however, I personally don't seen anyone in Nevada who is strong enough to stand against Reid. Let us pray! Please, Lord, protect and bless our country!
