    White House says it did send unwanted e-mails

    My Way News - White House says it did send unwanted e-mails

    After insisting no one was receiving unsolicited e-mails from the White House, officials reversed their story Monday night and blamed outside political groups for the unwanted messages from the tech-savvy operation.

    White House online director Macon Phillips said in a blog posting that independent groups - he didn't name them - had signed-up their members to receive regular updates about Obama's projects, priorities and speeches.
    I'm kinda curious....what's so "tech savvy" about being the Spambot-In-Chief?

    Flagrant impersonation of meat, probably.

    Re: White House says it did send unwanted e-mails

    the white house, in an act that would be seen as unbelievably stupid if it weren't by now so par for the course, declared war on fox news last week

    "cable tv" were the words used by press secty gibbs, and he disparaged the institution several times a day

    "food fights on cable tv," for example, were responsible for ginning up all this outrage that was just ruining all those otherwise pretty town halls gibbs wanted to see

    by "cable tv," just who could the secty mean?

    LOL?

    msnbc?

    the point---major garrett of fox fought back

    he employed a relentless LOL! campaign, stayed really upbeat and borderline funny

    but he kept pressing gibbs, day after day, on this question of emails

    how could people who never contacted the white house be on the receiving end of axelrod's propaganda pieces?

    obviously, a lot of recipients were conservatives, the way they so eagerly got in touch with garrett

    the upshot---in less than a week, the white house backs down

    LOL!

    another defeat

    another retreat

    death panels, floor vote deadlines, public options, emails...

    running backwards on every front

    ms palin kicked his butt on panels

    all she did is MENTION em on FACEBOOK

    LOLOLOL!

    in LESS THAN A WEEK baucus had to abandon em

    LOLOL!

    these happenings are very revealing of where the power in this country really lives

    gosh, and it was just january 20 when the party of pelosi was so puffed up

    fastest loser in american history, obama

    most incompetent pol at the national level america has ever seen

    he had it ALL, 60 senators, a thrilled media...

    now, he's running away from a cable tv reporter and an outta work governor from ALASKA

    LOLOLOL!

    this email business is NOT over, by the way, there are legal ramifications

    the white house CANNOT delete or expunge them, per federal law

    exactly how they got them is still a big question

    major garrett is NOT going away---LOL!

    and he's sure to get ALL THE TIME his news hounding heart could ever desire on HIS NETWORK

    THAT's how dumb is rahm the ram

    and his bigeared boss

    why did the white house shut down flag.gov the very day they admitted wrongness on the emails?

    exactly WHAT was going on at flag?

    Are you honestly going to claim that "outside political groups" during the Bush years never sent out any right wing spam?

    They sure do now. I tried to unsubscribe to the RNC email spam(that I never subscribed to), and I started getting two at a time. So I tried one more time, and started getting 3. I gave up at that point.

    Can you prove that they did? Nevermind, because it's irrelevent. The point is, that the Obama Administration did spam people. Care to tell us how that's ok?

    Remember the,"snitch line"?????????

    This isn't "outside political groups" sending spam, this is the White House sending spam.

    Taxpayer supported spam...now that's change!

    I want to know how these individuals were signed up. Did the White House knowingly allow these independent groups to sign up lists of people or were they signed up without the White House knowingly they didn't asked to be signed up?

    Vague exported a list of all our emails and signed us up for White House emails through Organizing for America | BarackObama.com | Get Email Updates I wouldn't blame the White house for this.

    If these people didn't openly sign up for email alerts from the WH and the WH didn't know how they came to possess these email addies, then their only option was not respond to them.
