The White House really wants you to know that the $447 billion jobs plan that President Obama outlined in a speech to a joint session of Congress Thursday night has support--that is, from unions, liberal groups and other Democrats.
The White House Press Office sent nearly 50 e-mails to reporters overnight with statements of support from the president's allies, including The International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Democratic lawmakers, The Center for American Progress, the mayor of San Francisco and members of Obama's own Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.
The deluge of e-mails continued into Friday, with the last one (so far) sent out at 12:17 p.m.:
American Jobs Act
But wait, there's more!
Reporters, to say the least, took note.
"The White House Press Office has vomited all over my inbox," wrote Talking Points Memo's Callie Schweitzer.
"White House Press Office says Malia and Sasha support Obama's jobs plan," cracked Washington Examiner opinion columnist Phil Klein.
