Now, even black bloggers raise some doubts …

According to the ultra right leaning New York Times

The President held a special session at the White House for black bloggers.  He told them:

“Black blogs reach the part of our audience that’s not be watching ‘Meet the Press’ — not that there’s anything wrong with ‘Meet the Press.’ I’m just saying that, you know, it might be a different demographic,” he added, stirring a few laughs from the group.

Strikes me as a minority analogy to low income whites “grabbing for their guns and bibles”.

Seems that it had that effect on some in the audience …

Jack and Jill Politics (a black oriented blog) wrote that the feeling among some who attended Monday’s gathering was  that they were being used for political expediency.

“We essentially told the White House that we are not willing to be ‘pimped,’”

The guy certainly has a way with words, doesn’t he ?
