President Barack Obama continues to benefit from a fawning media of which past Presidents could only dream, yet on Sunday's This Week two journalists fretted he's not getting enough credit for his accomplishments, a lack of recognition they blamed on his staff's poor public relations efforts.
Since he's taken office, FBN's Liz Claman asserted, 'almost every sector in the S&P is up double digit percentages' and 'this is also the President under whom we got Osama bin Laden. Those two things are not getting him any gravitas at the moment.' So, she despaired, 'whoever's running PR for him needs to work on that part of it.' (video below)
New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny maintained the White House's public relations shortcomings are 'even breaking through to voters,' citing an Obama supporter in Illinois who 'said he [Obama] must have the worst PR machine in history.' Zeleny recalled how he asked the man what he meant and 'he said look at all of the good things he's done and we haven't heard about it.'
The guy must not watch or read any news.
