Obama uses Democratic Operative as Plant During SOTU

How little does the Obama administration think of the American people, and their lapdogs in the press?  Little enough to use a democratic operative as a plant in the Anointed One’s State of the Union Address.  The Washington Free Beacon reported the following:

Rebekah Erler has been presented by the White House as a woman who was discovered by the president after she wrote to him last March about her economic hardships. She was showcased in the speech as proof that middle class Americans are coming forward to say that Obama’s policies are working.

Unmentioned in the White House bio of Erler is that she is a former Democratic campaign operative, working as a field organizer for Sen. Patty Murray (D., Wash.).

This also wasn’t the first time the White House used the former Democratic campaign staffer as a political prop. Obama spent a “day in the life” of Erler in June so that he could have “an opportunity to communicate directly with the people he’s working for every day.”

These people have no shame.
