Is It a Big Deal of Maddow + Olbermann Enjoyed Peach Cobbler With Obama?

MSNBC pundits Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann were among those who joined President Obama on Monday for a 2.5 hour off-the-record chat at the White House. This got Fox News and conservatives really upset!

Probably because they weren’t invited. But these two weren’t the only RSVPs; Eugene Robinson, E.J. Dionne, Ron Brownstein, John Dickerson, Rachel Maddow, Frank Rich, Jerry Seib, Maureen Dowd, Keith Olbermann, Bob Herbert, Gloria Borger, and Gwen Ifill were also there.

Not that it’s stopped the right-wing noise machine from criticizing the White House and liberals for their secret sit-down. Except, uh, isn’t this exactly what happened during the Bush administration? Why yes, yes it was.

    Peach Cobbler Summit?

  • John

    The Obama administration also met with Conservative talk show hosts and journalists earlier this year. Bush, on the other hand, regulartly met with conservative media personalities but not with the liberal media. In fact, George Bush refused to be interviewed by the NY Times the entire 8 years that he was in office. I can’t believe you don’t see the differnce between the two administrations.

    Nixonian? Is Fox seriously saying the Obama administration’s policies are so bad they should be compared to that of a REPUBLICAN president? Good god.

    I also love how they think having a third of their demographic being Democrats means they are balanced. While I can only speak for myself, I know for a fact that if I’m watching Fox News it’s just to laugh at the hilarious right-wing shit they have to say, not to get any actual news coverage.

    @greybat: No, Kiss Ass Fest

  • Ian


    Wow, the only two journalists who ever bother to defend the gay community —Rachel and Keith— and you call them ass kissers?

    We really don’t need enemies when we have people like you on “our side”
