“FEISTY” PROGRESSIVE BLOG JOUSTER TO GET FIRST FAMILY’S PERSONAL THANKS AT PRIVATE WHITE HOUSE RECEPTION TODAY
WASHINGTON, D.C., Thurs, April 1, 2011 (Illusory News Service) – A spice-tongued liberal news blogger known for her barbed Internet defense of President Barack Obama has been told to expect a First Family visit to deliver the President’s appreciation.
Known only by her screen name on MSNBC’s “Newsvine” discussion blog, Chicago-area “Feisty Redhead – Roselle, Il” will host a private family drop-by at her home during a Presidential trip soon to the Chicago area. Sources say it will be coffee, cakes and conversation with the President, First Lady Michelle Obama, and their two daughters.
White House sources said that the private meeting allows the blogger, who had also volunteered more than 1,000 hours during the 2008 presidential campaign, to keep her identity a secret. “No press, no cameras, just as simple and low-key as any Presidential meeting is possible to be,” it was reported. Time of the “personal visit to express the First Family’s gratitude for spirited defense against malicious right-wing attacks” will not be made public.
“For too long, Americans who admire and respect this President have kept quiet as prominent right-wing propagandists such as Rep. Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich and Donald Trump spit out a steady stream of lies, misinformation, and outright libels against the leader of our country and his family,” posted “Feisty” in a message.
“And there are so many trolls in the blogosphere who take their leads and talking points from such spokespersons, as well as from the vituperations claiming to be ‘news and commentary’ aired on Fox News and the programs of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity,” she continued. “It is up to us to speak out and expose the empty rhetoric and warped treatment of American issues repeated by both paid right-wing blog trolls as well as simple rabid ideological fanatics.”
According to sources, the brief meeting with “Feisty” will include a personal message from the President that she will later post on the Newsvine “First Read” daily political memorandum.
