Tareq & Michaele Salahi walked into the White House, took photos and video with politicians including Joe (don’t mess with Joe) Biden, and the press is just kind of going along with it. Can you imagine if this happened in the Bush White House? The media cries of “idiot” and “moron” and “lack of security” would be three inch, above the fold news. Nada on the Obama security issue.

Since the White House is now targeting it’s next media outlet, Edmunds.com, the highly respected automobile web site’s traffic has increased. I would again like to invite the White House to target this ConservativeThinkers blog, so we can become their next target.
It is an odd, and we’d say regrettable, pattern of this White House that it lets itself get dragged down into fights with specific media outlets.

“So I got to go because my girlfriend is a fancy Hollywood actress and she got an invitation to go this last time, so we went,” the “Arrested Development” star told the crowd. He went on to say that he has an ongoing competition with a friend in which the two try to constantly out-do each other in “dares and outrageousness.”
Cross said that he was seated “super close to the president” and seated with or near former Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, former Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and “the editor-in-chief of the USA Today.”
