Does the WH have a war room?
And if not, why not, and how do we convince them to have one?

3. I think they should have one. In this day and age, it's essential
to keep control of messaging and have a rapid and forceful response to whatever bullshit is floating around.

4. Rapid aggressive response is essential
They also need to frame the narrative before the GOP gets in there with their negative destructive message.

9. The problem isn't the room, but what happens in it.
I'm sure the President has plenty of offices, conference rooms, War Rooms (TM) that are perfectly suitable for managing political strategy.

The problem is that they've failed to manage their political strategy well.

6. WE are the ones in need of a war room....or at least a forum that does more than
mainly attack this President daily.

I think that's part of the problem.....
too much piling on to the Obama hate,
and not enough defending on our part.

I have no doubt that they are diligently researching which flowers go best with orange.

10. Yep, but the press decides who gets to go out and when..
... and a big chunk of the press is purposefully trying to block he message.
