Incredibly, just as on July 4, the White House is claiming to know nothing about today's March On Washington: "White House officials on Friday professed to know nothing of the planned demonstrations. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs queried reporters about the planners and their issues. 'I don't know who the group is,' he said with a shrug."
Is this administration that out of touch with the pulse of America? If so, it's a black mark for them. Or are they just being coy, trying to downplay the magnitude of the protest. A sort of, "We're not scared!" tactic? If that's the plan, it's also a poor choice.
To disregard these protesters, to blow them off and discount their voices shows poor leadership, indeed.
I suspect that by the end of the day, Gibbs and Company will know "who the group" is. It's a whole lot of American citizens who have something to say. Open the windows and listen, Obama!
