    White House and Think Progress merger complete

    White House and Think Progress merger complete

    The Center for American Progress (CAP), the George Soros funded Democratic messaging machine, runs the aggressive Think Progress website.

    Think Progress is obsessed with attacking the Tea Party movement as racist, the Koch Brothers as evil manipulators, and Clarence Thomas as corrupt.  Think Progress blogger Matthew Yglesias helped ignite the false story that Sarah Palin’s electoral map was connected to the Gabrielle Giffords shooting.

    Think Progress is the public face of CAP, dominating news cycles with its relentless attacks on anyone who opposes Obama.

    CAP, which was run for years by former Clinton adviser John Podesta, now is run by a former Obama campaign staffer, Neera Tanden.

    Now the White House is bringing a senior CAP strategist Jennifer Palmieri into the White House to help prepare for the 2012 campaign.  As reported by Glenn Thrush at Politico:

    The White House is bringing onboard  high-octane Clinton administration  veteran Jennifer Palmieri , a top official at the progressive Center for  American Progress think tank, to beef up its communications unit heading into  2012, POLITICO has learned.

    Palmieri , who currently serves as president of CAP’s political action fund  and as a senior vice president at the parent organization, replaces former  deputy communications director Jennifer Psaki, who left for the private sector  earlier this fall.

    A senior Obama campaign official now runs CAP and Think Progress.  A senior CAP strategist now helps run the 2012 campaign from inside the White House.  The full embrace of CAP and Think Progress by the White House is just another sign that 2012 will be the nastiest campaign ever, with the truth the first victim.

    The merger of the White House and Think Progress is just about complete.  Think Progress is in control, or is the Obama campaign, or is there no difference anymore?

    OMG! I’m “Blog of the Day” and I have nothing to wear!!

    Thanks, Prof!

    The GOP has proven that they don’t know what to do with power once they get it. Well, they do actually: they use their power to get even with some other Good Ol’ Boy Republican who slighted them at the club.

    We would do well to demand a bit of idealism and core principles out of the GOP. Unfortunately, no ideal looks better to the populace than “free stuff!” and for such a mess of pottage have we traded our Republic.

    The Dems know it and have bought into it 100%. It’s a bit harder to get the GOP to find, much less adopt any shining ideal that trumps “free stuff” and they won’t be able to until the money runs out.

    “Moderate Mitt” ain’t gonna cut it.

    […] White House and Think Progress Merger Complete. Wonderful. A senior Obama campaign official now runs CAP and Think Progress. A senior CAP strategist now helps run the 2012 campaign from inside the White House. The full embrace of CAP and Think Progress by the White House is just another sign that 2012 will be the nastiest campaign ever, with the truth the first victim. […]
