Print More

Daily Kos blogger Kaili Joy Gray interviewed White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer on stage at Netroots Nation and asked him several stinging questions about President Obama’s positions with respect to certain progressive policies. Some of the questions stumped Pfeiffer. The UpTake interviewed Gray afterward, in particular about Obama’s apparent retraction of his support for marriage equality after speaking out in favor of gay marriage rights before he arrived in Washington as an Illinois Senator.
