Last night on Political Radar, Sunlen Miller of ABC News breathlessly recounted a “testy” exchange between Barack Obama and NY Times reporter Jeff Zeleny re: Bill Clinton’s recent
attempts at race baiting aggressive campaigning on behalf of Senator Clinton:
“I am trying to make sure that his statements by [President Clinton] are answered. Don’t you think that’s important?” Obama shot back, while walking away.
When Zeleny yelled a follow up question suggesting the Illinois senator had not answered the question, Obama fired back angrily, “Don’t try cheap stunts like that.”
Obama then walked away and shook hands with the mass of voters that surrounded him.
A few minutes later, Obama came back and confronted Zeleny again.
“I will answer your question though off the record, would you like to talk off the record?” Obama asked. Zeleny refused to go off the record and then motioned toward the gaggle of TV cameras gathered around him.
“Fired back angrily.”
Shit, Poindexter was damn lucky BHO didn’t go all OJ on his Wonderbread behind!
Ok, to recap the Official Beltway Narrative™: poor Jeff Zeleny bravely faced the wrath of The Angry Black Man, (leather) gloves off stylez, bwoi!
Billary betta pray Baby Bam ain’t strapped in S.C this Saturday.
