W.H. Defends Support for Dems

The White House fired a memo to House Democrats Wednesday defending their campaign actions after complaints that the administration isn't doing enough to keep a Democratic majority following the 2010 elections. The memo highlighted all campaign appearances President Barack Obama has made for congressional Democrats, as well as "40 or so" upcoming scheduled events. The memo comes shortly after Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other members of her caucus attacked White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, who said Sunday on Meet the Press that Democrats could lose the House. House members have also grumbled that the White House has a bias toward the Senate, although a staffer told Politico, "the whole notion that we're not doing enough or that we have a Senate bias is [BS]."
