Oh, sure.White House Press Secretary Jay Carney Monday denied that the Obama campaign is choosing the locales of the reporters who get to interview Obama – saying the White House is calling the shots. Of course, this ignores that the campaign, in the person of Senior Adviser David Plouffe, is actually in the White House.
Obama has been interviewed in recent weeks by reporters from Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Virginia and Iowa. Yesterday he spoke with reporters from Indiana, Colorado, and North Carolina. And, to provide some cover for this nakedly political effort, they added a guy from Texas, a state Obama can’t possibly win. Big mistake
Another big mistake.
