I watched the entire video plea by 10-year-old aspiring reporter, Damon Weaver, asking the President-elect for a brief interview during Inauguration week.
And I’m surprised the Obama Administration made the boneheaded decision not to give press credentials to this cute, smart boy. That’s not to mention that this is a young Black kid, for whom Obama–we are told–is supposed to be a role model.
Yes, it’s hard to understand some of what he’s saying, but remember, he’s only ten.
If the Obama camp were smart, they would have granted young Weaver press credentials when he asked for them, and they would have publicized and promoted the heck out of it. Instead, Obama’s crew is looking like a bunch of grinches.
Remember, “Yes, We Can”? That was just a campaign slogan about opening up your wallets to pay for his stuff. For everything else, including Damon Weaver, it’s more like, “No, We Can’t.” Heartless. And more than that, just stupid.
Even Joe Biden was smarter on this. He gave an interview.
Bleeding Heart Liberals–they bleed for themselves, those who can help them, and those who hate America. But they don’t bleed for you (or this cute little kid who could have made for great press).
My guess is that the Obama gang will eventually back down . . . if they’re smart.
