Anita Dunn is the White House director of communications, a.k.a. Obama’s press spokescreature. The Washington media establishment (surprise!) fawns over her. And why not? She is one of them.
Which may be a little discomfiting to them now, given that she has publicly revealed her affection for the Chinese “philosopher” who made a long march through seventy million of his comrades.
Everyone has probably seen this video by now, but I feel compelled to post it anyway. We’ll let Glenn Beck handle Ms. Anita Dunn:
For a little more background on the White House flak-catcher, check out NewsBusters. Ms. Dunn does not conceal her loathing for FOX News, and Neil Cavuto comes right back at her with “Let’s Pretend You Work for the President and Not Some Left-wing Blog”.
As Noel Sheppard says:

If White House communications director Anita Dunn thought she was going to get away with attacking the Fox News Channel without a response from the objects of her disaffection, she was sadly mistaken:
“Is that Anita Dunn?”
“Yep. You can stick a fork in her.”
UPDATE (from Dymphna)
And a new poll:
In what may be the ultimate job rating, 43 percent of voters say that they would vote to re-elect President Obama if the 2012 election were held today…
Despite winning the Nobel Peace Prize last Friday, the latest Fox News poll finds the president’s ratings on foreign issues are lower than his overall job ratings. All in all, 49 percent of Americans say they approve of the job President Obama is doing and 45 percent disapprove…
Fox says “despite winning the Nobel” but it may be the case that the numbers are sinking precisely because he did win that award. This Pyrrhic Prize is going to keep biting him, no matter which way he turns. There are some things even Rham Emanuel can’t fix, and one of them is the feeling of the American electorate that they’ve been pwned by a foreign government.
By the way, Rasmussen has had negative numbers on Obama’s approval rating for quite some time. The Nobel brought him “up” to -3, but he slid back again to -8. For a while his numbers were double digit negative. Thus -8 is an improvement.
Rasmussen limits its poll-taking to likely voters only. Because of this, the Left says Rasmussen is more negative than necessary. They make this claim with a straight face, in spite of all the voter registration ACORN did for the Democrats.
