Sonic, your NY Times article was actually impressive researching.
However, the difference between Bush's meeting with conservative talking heads and Obama's meeting with progressive mouthpieces is a very important one.
The media is already on Obama's side.
Bush's meeting was to re-energize conservatives in the face of the liberal media's continuous and relentless onslaught of biased reporting.
Also, Obama met with bigwigs from the NY Times 4 times before even taking the oath of office and even before sitting down with his own team and has had several of these meetings just in the past four years.
Bush met once with conservatives in the middle of his second term.
It's very important to remember Obama already has the mainstream media eating out of the palm of his hand. He doesn't need all these secretive meetings to tell them to scream any louder.
That's a very big difference in my opinion.
"Bush's meeting was to re-energize conservatives in the face of the liberal media's continuous and relentless onslaught of biased reporting."

As Talk Radio Wavers, Bush Moves to Firm Up Support

The meeting, which was not announced on the president’s public schedule, was part of an intensive Republican Party campaign to reclaim and re-energize a crucial army of supporters that is not as likely to walk in lockstep with the White House as it has in the past.

Conservative radio hosts are breaking with the Republican leadership in ways not seen in at least a decade, and certainly not since Rush Limbaugh’s forceful advocacy of the party in 1994 spawned a new generation of stars, said Michael Harrison, publisher of the industry’s lead trade publication, Talkers.

Disgruntlement can now be found not only among the more flamboyant radio voices, like Michael Savage, who raged against Mr. Bush’s proposals on immigration and other issues, but also among more mainstream hosts, like Laura Ingraham, who told her listeners in the wake of the scandal involving former Representative Mark Foley and under-age Congressional pages,“You have to ask yourself, the people who are in positions of power now in the Republican Party, are they able to credibly articulate the conservative agenda to the American people — to rally the base, to rally the country?”

Get back to us on how that outreach is working out for your intolerant and bigoted Party.
Now here's the rest of the story which you won't hear from any of your liberal propagandists.

K. Carl Smith, founder and President of Frederick Douglas Republicans, who held the session on minority outreach said this afterwards:

One of the black Republicans approached by Terry said in a statement that, despite Terry's "racially insensitive remarks...I further explained to him the Frederick Douglass Republican message, which he embraced, bought a book, and we left as friends."

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57574709/...

(CBS is becoming the rebel in the liberal media crowd.)

It was also reported K. Karl Smith elaborted even further:

"At the book signing after the session Scott Terry shared with me that he supported a type of Booker T. Washington Republican. We shared with him that Booker T was greatly influenced by Frederick Douglas. So much so that he wrote a biography about Frederick Douglas. Then Scott Terry responded by saying,‘I didn’t know that. I could get into Frederick Douglas.’ And then he bought our book and I shook his hand and said thank you. So he left informed and inspired.”

So one young man learned something very important and walked away with a different perspective.

But I noticed the liberal media had nothing to say - not one single word - about the NAACP calling every single person in the Tea Party a racist.

Maybe your brainwashers just made sure you believed them.

Later.

Carol and her spewcrew just doesn't get that what we're hearing today is the same puke we heard during BushCo and the part of Clinton that had wide internet activity.

Topix and Mary Noble said it so it must be true.

The Iraq war cost $2.2 Trillion and 190,000 lives and before it's all over it could cost the over $6 Trillion.

Who is this Mary Noble person? Her pieces also appear on other aggregates at a very impressive rate.

While I appreciate the positive judgeits just for ( My ) Screen Name recognition ...

This was the last post I wrote last night ( Below )

All others written in My Screen Name, were from my FAKE new yawk who also wrote many in carol's name as well, that also received positive judgeits.
While YOU allowed the real carol's posts to receive negative judgeits.

If this thread does not start to discern accurately, I am going to tear IT apart.

You won't need to "worry" about the FAKE new yawk.

I state this because I've studied "the judgeit pattern" ... Conservatives are doing the judging.

Get it right or I am going to start outing ALL of your socks.

I will pitch this mutha' straight down the strike zone.

PS Posts written to Chicagoan By Birth, Eed and carol IN MY SCREEN NAME that were very incendiary, I DID NOT WRITE. So, why in ALL of your brilliance would YOU insult those posters by judging THOSE posts as Brilliant, Interesting and Agree? And DO NOT come back with the lame ass reply that it was liberals who judged these posts.

The judgeit pattern speaks for itself and belies that claim.

And YOU are playing right into the FAKE new yawk's strategy of Divide and Conquer ... And looks to me as if FAKE is winning, making a fool out of you, BUT you are helping. Because those offensive posts were meant to silence Conservative posters.
And cause dissension, confusion and chaos.

Now, once again, I will contact Topix to straighten out the NO ISP problem.
Until then ... I believe an apology to carol, Eed and Chicagoan By Birth is owed for your show of stupidity via positive judgeits on posts that insulted them. I also take into account that some of the posts written by the FAKE new yawk were more difficult to discern.

MY LAST POST LAST NIGHT:
Buona Serra Thread ...:)

Any posts after this one wont be written by me.
My faithful fan imposter may strike again.

I really don't need nor want any more groupies, fans, admirers and adorers.*O, Pieta Me! LOL!

And the Evil Eye Mozzarella comment was the dead give away.

This post should have been "easily" discerned.

Guns are as much a part of the fabric of America as bootleg liquor and prostitution. Frankly, so much family money came from hooking thirteen year old girls to the Irish and Italians I really don't see the need for stiffer (did I say that?) sentences.
In any event we're going to need guns to deal with all the Chinese girls that've been adopted by childless couples across America. What? You're going to bounce somebody's slanty-eyed kid on your lap at Thanksgiving? I'd die first.
Hey, I got some real good Mozzarella I need to unload, it's never seen the evil eye at any time in the process.
