‘This wasn’t a political move’: David Plouffe fails at spin attempts


Oh, dear. White House senior adviser David Plouffe is making the rounds on almost all of the Sunday shows. He frantically tries to spin Obama’s ‘Occupy Open Borders’ plan, leaks and economic plans (or lack thereof.)

On @MeetThePress WH Adv. David Plouffe denies politics behind Obama's immigration decision. "Wasn't about politics"

@whiteshot Only Sunday Talkshow David Plouffe isn't hitting is CBS. U know, if da Prez is doing his job right, he don't need no apologists!

Alas, no one is buying what Plouffe is trying to sell.

Plouffe unable to offer any new ideas for fixing economy on SOTU & FNS. Maybe he will come up with some for MTP. Stay tuned.

Opposite day! RT @Markhalperin: @meetthepress Plouffe on immigration decision, "There was NO politics…well within our boundaries to do."

Plouffe on FNS says it's Republicans who are concerned about national security leaks from WH. // Didn't know Feinstein was a Republican

Hope! Change! RT @ellencarmichael: RT @rorycooper: Wallace: "It's clear you have no new agenda." Plouffe: "Look at the other side…" #FNS

When pols can't answer yes or no, you know they are lying. (Wallace asks Plouffe about natl security leaks on @FoxNewsSunday. Plouffe punts)

Plouffe on CNN would not say why Obama's DHS waited til Fri to end deportations of illegal student immgrnts. Candy asked if it was politics.

Looking forward to @meethepress podcast. Not sure how Plouffe makes the case that Obama immigration policy wasn't political. #whoyakiddin

lol “@jimacostacnn: Plouffe on CNN's SOTU on immigration: "This is not a political move."”

— Ben White (@morningmoneyben) June 17, 2012

Oh, our aching sides! Everyone with even just half a brain knows this was purely political: It was a power grab and an attempted vote grab, plain and simple.

David Plouffe tells @davidgregory Obama immigration announcement. "not political". Just hand him the Best Supporting Actor Oscar now.

Some are also wondering why Plouffe?

I've read his book, but when I see him in interviews, it's hard to see how David Plouffe is a political mastermind.

— Ellen Carmichael (@ellencarmichael) June 17, 2012

Ploufe? Is Axelrod in timeout?

— Rory Cooper (@rorycooper) June 17, 2012

Watching Chris Wallace interview David Plouffe is painful. Never seen such defensive body language from Plouffe. #tcot #rs #looksguilty

— Bill Pascoe (@wpascoe) June 17, 2012

Did David Plouffe draw the short straw or something? This Fox interview is a train wreck wrapped in a disaster

— Liz Mannebach (@Liz_Mannebach) June 17, 2012

Don't think this guy talking to Chris Wallace will be allowed to talk to him again.Daivid Ploufe is his name. He ever has a Nixon sweaty lip

— WallyWolfpacker (@wallywolfpacker) June 17, 2012

Bless his heart.

Hard to see how this Fox News Sunday interview could have gone any worse for David Plouffe/ White House/ Obama HQ.

— Ellen Carmichael (@ellencarmichael) June 17, 2012

Nice try, Team Obama. But, a total fail once again.
