Listening to the White House press briefings, and the other WH staff comments, you'd think the new axis of evil is Rick Santelli, Jim Cramer, and Rush Limbaugh.
By Asher Embry
Just two months in, this White House staff we find in quite a snit.
They’ve started their attacking; an “enemies list”’s been writ,
They’re lashing out against the press in ways’d make Nixon blush.
First targets from Gibbs’ podium: Cramer, Santelli and Rush.
Who pulls the strings on these attacks, who authors these libretti?
Who runs Obama’s dirty tricks, his Ziegler and Segretti?
On daily conference calls they plot distractions with aplomb.
They’re baaack: Begala, Carville, Stephanopoulos, and Rahm.
Criticize at your peril since “O” has the thinnest skin.
So used to adulation, any less does cause chagrin.
If you ever raise real questions then you’re getting out of line.
Tell of any opposition and they’ll say you rant and whine.
There’s been no wealth destruction; we’ve enough still to retire.
If the public hates the mortgage plan don’t dare report their ire.
Don’t question central planning or if fiscal prudence’ll prevail.
And never, never ever, say a policy should “fail”.
With these attacks the Left and Robert Gibbs do get their kicks.
But ‘member when the candidate “ended” old-style politics.
Govern! Stop campaigning; off those tactics finish weaning.
They’re distracting, they’re dishonest, they’re disheartening, they’re demeaning.
No more snarky Plouffe op-eds; Rahm and Gibbs can end their sniping.
Get ’em back downplaying terror and financial crisis hyping.
Instead of spending all that time on Rick and Rush and Jim -
Stop Bin Laden, Putin, Chavez, Ahmedinejad and Kim!
