Huffing and puffing all over The Blaze
Obama’s Bundlers & Friends on front lines of Cairo protests

Took less than a month for former Huffington Post CEO Betsy Morgan and Managing Editor Scott Baker to go huffing and puffing all over The Blaze.
The Blaze, now cutting a break for Code Pink in Cairo, should check in with writers Andrea Shea King and Kristinn Taylor who got it right (no pun intended).
Is it HuffPo at the helm that is portraying Code Pink rabble rousers as Obama enemies?
Note to Glenn Beck: Code Pink is not Global Citizen Barry Soetoro’s enemy. They are right up his wazoo. Big time.
Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans joined Team Obama as a bundler, pledging to raise at least $50,000 to elect Barack Obama to the White House.
Nowhere is there any proof that Evans quit Team Obama. In fact, on Oct. 15, 2009 Evans met with Obama only weeks after meeting with the Taliban.
How’s that for staying in close touch?
According to The Blaze, following a tip from their friends at Business Insider, Code Pink’s nine-person “international solidarity delegation” has been “in the streets with the Egyptian people for the last five days” and today the group actually plans to picket outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo.”
Their presence in Egypt was Business Insider described as “purely accidental”. “The International CODEPINK delegation has been en route to Gaza via Egypt but with the Rafah border closed they are unable to enter Gaza, and remain in Cairo. The activists will stay in Cairo until they can safely make their way to Gaza, where they intend to continue their delegation for peace. The delegation includes people from the US. Canada, Australia, the UK, Switzerland and India. This is CODEPINK’S ninth trip to Egypt and Gaza in the past two years.”
Like Bugs Bunny, Code Pink must have taken a wrong turn at Albuquerque—again!
“The group is demanding that President Obama, the U.S. State Department and Congress cease monetary and military assistance to “criminal” President Hosni Mubarak,” states Business Insider.
And this: “One of the group’s founders also insisted they’re also ready to step in front of any microphone.”
Back to Andrea Shea King and Kristinn Taylor if only to set the record straight:
On Dec. 29, 2009 Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn joined Code Pink in Egypt. “We hope the Egyptians get so annoyed they just want to get rid of us,” said Evans.
Those are not Obama’s enemies, but his friends and bundlers right there on the front lines of the Egyptian protests.
Unless you’re killed or one of the injured, fomenting for revolution is fun for some.
Meanwhile, it’s difficult enough sorting out the real from the surrealistic without a Huffpo influenced Blaze.
Get a grip, Glenn!
