White House Adds New Position to Deal with Unfavorable Online Media

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

The White House has named Jesse Lee to a new position within its communications department titled Director of Progressive Media & Online Response. According to The Huffington Post, Lee will essentially be responsible for building up Obama’s online presence as he prepares for his reelection bid, and squashing any negative 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.

      LET’S HOPE WE CAN JUST :DELETE:OR:UNSUBSCRIBE:!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Jan

      And being paid for by the taxpayers. Maybe Obama should try to fix what is wrong with our economy instead of running all over campaigning for reelection — God help us!!

    • JOHN SOTOMAYOR

      Now you see why he wangts to control the internet and communuications – All part of the Dictator syndrum. Take the guns, then the press, no free speach, etc, etc

      ‘the Fed-Govt’–and I’m here to Help You”–to

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      Beloved—I don’t think so!

    • WASP

      Maybe Obumbler will adopt the “Dear Leader” title, like the malignant dwarfs in North Korea. Of course, the Kenyan isn’t Dear and he sure as hell isn’t a leader.

      Newt wanted to ‘curtail’ Freedom of Speech…Obozo, our Liar in Chief is doing it!!! He is in violation of many articles of our Constitution, and disregards it at will!!!…Maybe they will shut me down too, but I pledge to tell the truth anyway!! Guess they will have to sue me!!

      Another way to spend our money without our consent. No wonder we’re getting broker and broker by the day.

    • http://verizon Albert Lloyd Grounds

      I imagine he will be spending a lot of time trying to prove the birth certificate they produced is real also but too late since a Kenyan Colonel just revealed the evidence of his being born in Kenya and proud of the fact he was born there.

      I wonder how they are going to respond to the faked Hawaiian Birth Certificate?

  • Mike from Colorado

    This so called President has made so many outrageous threats against the American people and our economy that he is squashing us down to where we just don’t have any fight left. But fight we must to preserve this great nation. All his unapproved Czars and Directors of this and that cost us money, big money…the aforementioned guy probably makes at least $150,000.

    • BUD

      WHAT THE HELL CHANCE DO US AMERICANS HAVE, WHEN THE REPUBLICANS IN OFFICE ARE WORTHLESS, THEY HAVE NO BALLS, AND THEY CAN’T GET ANYTHING DONE POSITIVE FOR AMERICA. I HAVEN’T HEARD ANYTHING INTELLIGENT FRON SPEAKER BONER LATELY. MAYBE HE QUIT HIS JOB, LIKE PALEN QUIT HERS. THE REPUBLICANS BETTER GET THEIR ASS IN GEAR, OR NO REPUBLICAN VOTERS WILL VOTE FOR THEM. RIGHT NOW OUR REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS CANT SEEM TO GET ANYTHING RIGHT. MAYBE THEY HAVE ADD, AND CANT FOCUS.

    • Len

      AND YOU THINK THIS HALF-BREED, TWO FACED, FORKED TONGUE, LYING SOB, PLAYING A ROLE HE CAN’T FIT, IS ANY BETTER?

    • azwayne

      Too bad we didn’t spend the last 2 years on a good CONSERVATIVE AMERICAN party, We actually outnumber both parties but the elitist party leaders talk it down and won’t let it ruin their DC Control.

    • http://verizon Albert Lloyd Grounds

      A third party at this juncture would put Obama back in office so this has to be resisted at least until after the election in 2012.

      I do agree a third party should come into existence because the American people are tired of the incompetence in Washington, D.C. and unhappy with both parties but more so the Democrats. It may be called the Independent party but to make it work, registered voters must make it known and switch to Independent status to become a dominant force in the polls and election process. The Tea Party has been a true game changer in integrating the Independents, Libertarians,Democrats and Republicans into a powerful force and if they decided to do this, Washington, D.C. will have to change
      to voting the conscience of the people, not what they think is right for us.

    • Les

      Obama is the lowest form of life, & a lyer.
      Surely smart, people with class, & goodness
      can Beat him. Good beats evil. Good is
      powerful.

    • am2sweet

      I will not ever stop fighting that dirty Nazi. He may run the country but he doens’t run me yet and as far as I’m concerned I’d slap his face if I met up with him. I’d do more but wanting that slap in first. If he doesn’t like anything bad said about him maybe he should run home to mommy since he can’t seem to do anything right to brag about. We need a huge wave of conservatives across the nation letting everyone know what Obama and his supporters are which are dirty Nazis who don’t care about anyone but themselves. That includes Soros and the unions that should be made to look dirty which they are. If I had the money Trump had I’d be fighting all this which makes me think he didn’t care about the country after all to back down and not try to do anything.

    • PrincessPhily

      Along with you slapping that asshole I will help and spit in his ugly face. I will say whatever I want about that asshole and I will not give up my free speech.

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      Whatever you do, don’t slap him. That will only get you arrested. It’s much better to be in action first–if you get my drift…

    • Goodbye America

      What fight?? We don’t have any fight at all, never have,, What the Tea Party.. They were a good start, but most elected turned into Obama cronies… Boehner for example…

      We have not yet begun to fight.. We have let people poke us in the chest, bite our fingers off, smear our good names (calling us racist and all).. What fight are you exactly talking about????

      Like I said the fight has not even begun.. All I hear is a lot of talk not being backed up..

      We need someone that will back up what he/she says, and not just back up…Period..

      Let the fight begin now…. enough talk,, we need action… We need someone with skill, and a proven record…

      You can’t score a touchdown sitting on the bench, and all I see is us Americans (yes, me included) sitting on the internet whining like a bunch of people that are hiding…

      May God save our souls…

  • Roberto

    Stand up and fight back against the anti- american, anti-Jewish, Muslim bastard! He has the internet kill switch authority already so he can simply shut it down if it gets too much against him. He has already raised billions, likely some of it George Soros money, for re-election and no one else can match it. If he is re-elected we all LOOSE!

    • BUD

      OK ROBERTO, HOW IN THE HELL DO YOU FIGHT ??? TELL ME WHERE AND WHEN THE REVOLT BEGINS.

    • Cape Fear III

      Folks, the “revolt” begins once we get organized. I suggest we need a one-day shut-down of American commerce via a country-wide protests by the folks paying the bills….US!!!!! if that doesn;t work, we do more days as Obama seems to only listen to those openly revolting in the streets. Let’s show the fed gov’t what it’s like not to have income for a day, then two, then three or whatever it takes to get the point across. We’re legal, non-violent, but not silent any more!

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      We are non-violent now, and that last is the part that scares me. What would it take for the population to take that different route? I’d really like to know…

    • PrincessPhily

      It won’t. Americans are too stupid and whimps

    • azwayne

      Egypt, Syria and Libya have shown us what we must do. Get the picture?

  • Philip

    Roberto! Obama is the one who is “loose”
    We all will LOSE!

  • ARMYOF69

    This will not end well.

    • BUD

      YOU ARE CORRECT ARMY, WITH THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES WE ALREADY HAVE, NOTHING PRO-AMERICA IS GETTING DONE.

  • Dee G Virginia….USA

    WHY IS CONGRESS LETTING HIM USE OUR MONEY THIS WAY….IT IS ABOUT TIME CONGRESS STANDS UP TO WE THE PEOPLE IT IS OUR MONEY NOT THE ILLEGAL MUSLIM OBAMA’S MONEY………………

    • BUD

      YES DEE, YOU HAVE TO GROW BALLS FIRST. NONE OF OUR ELECTED REPUBLICAN OFFICIALS HAVE THEM. THATS WHY WE ARE DOOMED.

    • azwayne

      Make sure everyone remembers come election time. But everyone doesn’t have to wait. There are recall and impeachment procedures available to voters who put them in office.

  • GranAnn

    When are the representatives elected by WE THE PEOPLE going to step up and impeach this person? Seems like every new day there is a new loss of our freedoms. People, some of us (not me and probably not you), but some elected him as president, NOTE AS DICTATOR!!!

    • BUD

      GRANANN, IT AINT GONNA HAPPEN. FACE IT AND EXCEPT IT, NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE TILL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ASSEMBLE AND REVOLT. IT WORKS IN THE OTHER COUNTRIES, AND IT WOULD HERE TOO. DOING IT THE NICE WAY AND THE POLITE WAY, WILL ACCOMPLISH NOTHING IN YOUR LIFETIME. IF YOU PERSONALLY DO NOTHING, THEN TRY NOT TO BE TOO DISAPPOINTED WITH WHERE THIS COUNTRY IS GOING.

    • we’re not stupid

      So, let’s get started with the revolt. Someone out there that can give the time and energy to revolting this “so-called” president and his re-election, get it started. I would, but I can’t start it due to health reasons, but hey I do know how to organize if I could help. WE MUST GET THIS OB OUT OF OFFICE. MIGHT COUILD TAKE THE LIBYA MANNER AND FORCE HIM OUT – START WITH AUSTING HIM AS PRESIDENT AND THEN GO FROM THERE. I’m with anyone who can help get this accomplished. But we need to watch out for Big Mean Nancy and idiot Joe Biden. Neither of them need to succeed this idiot we have.

    • http://ThePatriotUpdate Michael G.

      You and I are in the same boat, health-reason why. I have too many things going on, and more just keeps getting piled on. One of these days I may not be able to walk anymore, and I’m also losing my eyesight.
      But I’ll just keep plugging along. Plugging may be the only thing I can do one of these days…

  • TexasMom

    Aggressive defense = LIE OUT YOUR @$$

  • R. Cook

    Obama has said in the past that one of the reasons he was able to get elected was that “they” were able to control the message. Stand by for one of the dirtiest, mudslinging, Democratic campaigns in the history of our country.

    Our only hope is to nominate a no holds barred trench fighter to take on his billion $ campaign.

    • BUD

      R.COOK, TAKE A REALLY GOOD LOOK AT THE REP CANDIDATES. DO YOU SEE A TRENCH FIGHTER. DONALD TRUMP WAS THE ONLY FIGHTER TO SPEAK SINCE REAGAN. THE CANDIDATES ARE ALL POLITICALLY CORRECT WIMPS, AND LIKE SPEAKER BONER THEY CAN’T GET ANYTHING DONE.

  • lonetrader

    So what has the NEW Congress done for the people since it was elected. I am thinking. Still thinking. Hmmm. Have they done anything about the illegals? No. Have they done anything to spur small and medium business? No. Have they done anything to help our seniors? No. What have they done? Sent more money overseas, killed a dead man, covered it up. OH THEY PASSED THE UNPATRIOT ACT AGAIN to take away your rights. The precious metals you should be collecting are brass, lead, etc. Food and fresh water. It won’t be the govt coming, it will be riots started by the govt. Look at the Middle East and Europe. It is coming to our neighborhoods soon. Sooner than you think.

    • BUD

      NOR WILL ANY POSITIVE CHANGES TAKE PLACE IN THIS COUNTRY WITHOUT A REVOLT. DO DON’T REALLY THINK TALKING TO YOUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE WILL DO ANYTHING GOOD.
      DO YOU ??????????????????

    • BUD

      YOU REALLY DONT THINK TALKING TO YOUR ELECTED OFFICIAL WILL ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING.
      DO YOU ??????????????????

  • American ex-Pat

  • http://none john eastiin

  • CarolTex

    How or why is it possible that the White House can use taxpayer money to promote the President’s re-election? Isn’t there any law against using taxpayer money for a political campaign? Where is the Congress in all of this? Evidently they don’t care. They’ve got their little nest egg and piece of the pie. The rest of us Be Damned.

    • BUD

      A LAW, WHAT IS THAT???
      OBUMMER KNOWS NO LAWS, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN, HEAD UNDER A ROCK ?????????

    Tine to turn off the TV’s! When getting the NEWS turn to the internet and check every item and it’s source. Listen and Read. Pay attention! Make up your own mind and do not allow race, religion, and politics to make up your mind for you.

    • BUD

      SHELL, THAT MEANS YOU HAVE TO THINK. AMERICANS CANT THINK PAST THE CHANNEL NUMBER FOR “DANCING WITH THE STARS, OR AM IDOL”.

  • bob novak

    So now we have to pay for this bastards re-election agenda also? Give me a break.

  • Dan

    The problem we have right now besides Obama is the Senate is controlled by the Democrats so no matter what the House does the Senate won’t even bring it up for a vote. We need to do to the Senate what we did to the House and replace the Obama Supporters then maybe we get a budget passed and get spending under
    control. Don’t go blaming the new crop of
    Representatives they have tried but they can’t
    get anything past the Senate. The democrats
    want us to blame our new representatives that takes our attention away from the real problem the democratically controlled Senate who won’t vote on anything and have no good ideas of their own all they care about is getting Obama reelected. We need to pay attention to the big picture our newbies are trying to get the job done but the Senate and the Whitehouse is blocking them. The democrats in the Senate won’t even bring the budget up for a vote. Don’t giveup on our Reps it isn’t their fault. They passed the budget it’s on the democrats in the Senate and the Whitehouse we need to blame.

  • Doug

    Looks like they are trying to block access to the full article. Need more proof?

  • Tom SC

    I have said it before and I’ll say it again. We need to lock & load and march down Pennsylvainia Ave 1 million strong or more. This moron won’t go without and armed confrontation. Thats why he went to Colorado, to build up a private Army!!

  • Gwendolyn

    To be expected! Even most Democrats are awake to Obama now so,naturally, can’t be trusted to protect Obama anymore. Soros is running the show, but still needs a back-up. Best just react like I do. I never watch Obama on TV, or pay any attention to his ads. He has become far too repulsive.

  • Painted Horse

    Thjey can add all they want to, but the muslim will not be re-elected!!!

  • charles

    there is a solution – we just have to find some congressmen that have the balls to follow the law. Treason is punishable by death in this nation so::
    IMPEACH – CONVICT – EXECUTE = THE LIAR IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND ALL HIS TREASONIST COHORTS.

  • ARMYOF69

    WE need a REPRESENTATIVE in the White HOuse to represent WE THE PEOPLE.
    Apparently we have none anymore.
    Can you say: A REVOLUTION IS ON ITS WAY SOON?

  • Frankie

    FACEBOOK censored me a couple of days ago. I posted an article about Gov. Perry and immigration and said Washington, then Obama, needed to stay out of the state of Texas business. They started throwing up those distorted words and even though the ‘correct’ flag came up it still would not post my article or comment. Then I tried to bring down my facebook account and the flag kept telling me that the password was wrong. That’s George Soros for you. I believe Soros has even paid Bill O’Reilly to lie to his viewers. Powerful man, evil man Soros, I think! One must remember to include, “I believe”, “In my opinion,” “I think.”
    If you state it as a fact… it is libelous and you can be sued for slander. So be Careful!

  • BARNEY

    So the “Commie in chief” can now use taxpayer money to fund his 500 day campaign for reelection…..if we don’t get this evil demagogue out of the white house next fall we can kiss our American a$$es good bye

  • ARMYOF69

    Why would we be surprised?
    This King of America, needs all sorts of traitors in house to do his bidding.
    Apparently the House Of Representatives is to be totally ignored by this King.
    Time throw this King off his throne I say.
