Obama Offers Payoff for Votes; MSNBC Announcer Defends Split Speeches

Newsbusters and legendary blogger Doug Ross report that MSNBC announcer Jay Barbree was visibly upset when he learned that Barack Obama has staged an audience on a NASA base. Obama did give a speech to NASA employees, but none of the NASA employees were allowed to attend an official speech.  Off camera, Obama told the employees that if they voted for him they could keep their jobs.  Only academics and government officials, Obama's lackeys, were allowed to attend the longer speech. 

Newsbusters reports that another MS-NBC announcer, Alex Witt, justified the direct quid pro quo and split speeches that in effect differentiate Americans into two of the three classes that Obama is establishing, the upper, academic-Wall Street class; the vulnerable and dependent middle class of state employees, not permitted freedom of speech and expression because of their dependence on the socialist state; and the lumpenproletariat, loyal to their Fuhrer and to the socialism that keeps them in their place with a crust of bread and an apartment in a city project.

BARBREE: ...I'm a little disturbed right now, Alex. I just found out some very disturbing news. The President came down here in his campaign and told these 15,000 workers here at the Space Center that if they would vote for him, that he would protect their jobs. 9,000 of them are about to lose their jobs. He is speaking before 200, extra hundred people here today only. It's invitation only. He has not invited a single space worker from this space port to attend. It's only academics and other high officials from outside of the country. Not one of them is invited to hear the President of the United States, on their own space port, speak today. Back to you Alex.

WITT: Alright Jay I can understand why that would certainly get you a bit upset. I will say, on behalf of the Obama administration, they contend that 2500 new jobs will be created, even more, they say, than the 2012 Constellation would have created, that program. So I know all this remains to be seen, but understandably we get why you're upset, right now. Along with many others down there. Let's see if the President clears that up later today. Jay thanks so much.
