Obama "Forgets" to Ask Cultists to Donate to Hillary to Pay Down Her Debt

I don't think this is the ass-kissing Bill Clinton had in mind.

Time’s Page: "Oooops!!!! [Obama] back on stage after his final curtain call at a Manhattan fundraiser last night— he had forgotten to ask for donors’ help with Hillary’s debt."

Associated Press: "After a minute or so, the music was cut short and Obama returned to the stage. ''This is not the speech part, but it is important,'' he said sheepishly, urging the group to reassemble. "

LA Times: But what happened Wednesday night was a little embarrassing. After the two Democrats voted differently on the Senate's FISA retroactive surveillance O.K. bill, Obama flew Clinton from Washington to New York City… Oops! It seems Obama had forgotten to mention the part about giving money to Hillary Clinton in the spirit of unity, the whole reason they were gathered there in the first place.

New York Times: "At this point, he was supposed to appeal for donations for her debt-relief fund, aides said. He evidently forgot and circled back to do so at the end of his remarks. "

Note the Times once again deliberately misreports the incident. This may not be the biggest story, but it is a story, and the Times chooses to mislead its readers to understate it -- because healing the Obama-Clinton rift and thus helping the Democratic Party is of a higher priority than properly informing its readers. (Let alone entertaining them.)
