‘WH grammar fail’! Having health insurance is ‘basic tenant of being a human’ [video]

http://twitter.com/#!/redsteeze/status/447109671007309824

Yeah … that’s not a compliment.

This afternoon, the White House pimped a new video starring celebrities who haven’t signed up for Obamacare telling us to sign up for Obamacare. Unfortunately, they forgot to run their tweet by the Grammar Fairy first:

D’oh.

Wouldn’t it, though?

But maybe in this particular case, “tenant” kinda sorta makes a little sense:

So there’s that. Oh, and did we mention that nobody’s buying what the White House is selling?

White House pulls plug on press for Lionel Richie at African leaders dinner

http://twitter.com/#!/waffle721/status/496848964533366784

Lionel Richie was the entertainment at Tuesday night’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit dinner at the White House, but as CBS News’ Mark Knoller points out, the press was limited to one song.

Now that we know what the press didn’t get to hear, here’s a look at what they didn’t get to eat. No #LiveTheWage here.

You know who got to eat and hear the entire Lionel Richie performance? Valerie Jarrett.

‘Have fun storming the White House’! Secret Service mocked over fence jumper

http://twitter.com/#!/freddoso/status/516690886202490880

As WaPo’s Carol Leonnig reported, the Secret Service apparently messed up even more than previously thought when it came to confronting White House fence jumper Omar Gonzalez. And now, the White House is paying the price … with the public:

I think the one issue uniting left and right in our country is that maybe the White House's security isn't totally great.

— Isaac Morrison (@Thorrison) September 29, 2014

If the Secret Service hasn’t done it already, hiring an image consultant would be a good next step.

So you're telling me the same agency that hired hookers in Colombia botched White House security? Who could have ever seen that coming…

— Hipster Serpico (@KimMarcumTexas) September 29, 2014

We're sure that the fence jumper isn't still in the White House now, correct?

— jon gabriel (@exjon) September 29, 2014

The Secret Service seems better at keeping secrets than serving the President.

— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) September 29, 2014

More like Secretly Bad Service. HA.

— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivianuzzi) September 29, 2014

As punishment, Michelle Obama is going to make the Secret Service eat a week's worth of her school lunches.

The fence-jumper apparently sat down to dinner with the Obamas, stayed for drinks, and finally was apprehended.

— David Freddoso (@freddoso) September 29, 2014

They finally figured it out when POTUS said, "Hey, wait a minute, you're not the guy I appointed Secretary of Labor." http://t.co/gdmNMO3usf

— David Freddoso (@freddoso) September 29, 2014

In fact, it appears the fence-jumper actually signed three bills into law before the Secret Service caught up http://t.co/gdmNMO3usf

— David Freddoso (@freddoso) September 29, 2014

Talk about bad optics, huh?

Smartest admin in history.. Completely caught off guard by everything… Economy, terrorists, fence jumping lunatics.
