Ronald Kessler helpfully gives us a reason to distrust Brad Blakeman's opinion at the very start of his Oct. 6 Newsmax column:
No one would mistake Brad Blakeman for a Democrat. He is a former Bush White House aide who appears regularly on Fox News and other outlets as a Republican strategist.
Yet Democrats are so disgusted with President Obama that when they shmooze with Blakeman in the green room before TV appearances, they diss the president.
“They say how arrogant and disconnected Obama and his staff are,” Blakeman tells Newsmax. “They say that he refuses to take advice and basically demands that they toe his line no matter what.”
If we can't trust Blakeman's opinion since we know he's going to attack Obama, why trust that he's telling the truth regarding the opinions of the green-room Democrats?
