Obama Presser open thread

I’m not an expert prognosticator, but I’m pretty sure we hear a question like this:  “Mr President, with your new mandate from the American people, and given the drubbing the racist, misogynist right looking to control the vag took in this election, don’t you think you’ve earned some time off — and aren’t the racist, misogynistic rightwing teabaggers vindictively trying to ruin that for you by bringing up all this bullshit about some ambassador nobody’d even heard of before some shady filmmaker went and got him ass raped and killed?”

I could be wrong, though.

As I say, I’m no expert.

  1. Obama’s answer: “I swore we’d get those responsible, did I not? And you see that low-life shady filmmaker in jail today. So, mission accomplished. Next question? . . . Yes, you . . . . . um . . . . . Jessica?”

  2. “As I say, I’m no expert.” Close enough for government work, as they say.

  3. Boehner’s going to be asking questions at the conference, then.

  4. Focus on the Benghazi Four. Watch as the true persona comes out of its closet.

  5. Obama has stated it is acceptable to him that Iran build a domestic nuclear power program. Just not weapons. Somehow.

  6. - When Obama speaks of “saving the middle class”, he’s not talking about the entire middle class of the American electorate, he’s talking about the Public sector unions, and the limited private sector unions he controls, and who will vote for him strictly from self interest. The general public does not understand that whatsoever.

    - If he gets his way on the tax bill, watch the hit in private sector jobs to fall off the cliff anyway, as small business, faced with the looming Obamacare implimentation, and increased taxes on businesses, sends us right back into recession. He’ll blame it on Global warming. And Bush.

  7. Listening to this ‘presser’, you’d think Jugears was new on the job. The dope is just recycling all the same ‘plans’ he had first go round.

    He did remind us many, many, many times that he got the most votes.

    And he’s still a jerk.

  8. - Yeh, but he’s so cool.

  9. - On the parents of the 4 dead Americans, “I’m going to talk directly to the parents, not through the press.”

    ….Just as soon as I know how well we can cover up what really happened and get a story that works.

    “You want to pick on the UN secretary, rediculous. Pick on me.”

    - Mr Ptrdifrnt, what the fuck business does the UN secretary have going out and speaking for the WH on matters of state?

    ——

    *crickets* (the silence of the whore press)

  10. - I get so angry at the blatent stonewalling its hard to type.

  11. I was listening to it in the truck and kept saying to the radio, “So? Answer the question, numbnuts! That wasn’t the fucking question!”

    I have to say I was surprised that O wasn’t offended/found a question offensive/found the very presence of the reporters offensive, etc. At least he never said so out loud.

  12. Is there a transcript somewhere?

  13. No that I’ve seen.

    Flash: Sexpot ‘diplomat’ Jill Kelley has her pass to MacDill AFB suspended.

    Heh.

  14. “Is there a transcript somewhere?”

    Pretty sure there is JD, but from what we’re hearing it’s probably dated Feb, 2009.

  15. Yeah, you don’t really need a new transcript of an Obama speech or presser. He’s recycling the shit from four years ago.

  16. Good Allah. I am dummerer for having read that. I loathe him.

  17. I just found out that my company’s software (full-packet capture and analysis) was instrumental in recovering a lot of the scandalous e-mails. Our stuff is set up at Langley.

    That just feels weird.

  18. As long as it doesn’t make you feel dirty, di.

  19. No way in hell was I going to watch that f’n guy lie his ass off. Can’t take it.

    Di, is that Solera?

  20. But let me say specifically about Susan Rice, she has done exemplary work. She has represented the United States and our interests in the United Nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. As I’ve said before, she made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them. But for them to go after the U.N. ambassador, who had nothing to do with Benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous.

    And you know, we’re after an election now. I think it is important for us to find out exactly what happened in Benghazi, and I’m happy to cooperate in any ways that Congress wants. We have provided every bit of information that we have, and we will continue to provide information. And we’ve got a full-blown investigation, and all that information will be disgorged to Congress.

    And I don’t think there’s any debate in this country that when you have four Americans killed, that’s a problem. And we’ve got to get to the bottom of it, and there needs to be accountability. We’ve got to bring those who carried it out to justice. They won’t get any debate from me on that.

    The man has no soul.

    None.

    What a limp-wristed locker-bestuffed little whiny not-raised-by-daddy chump! And it sounds worse than it reads!

  22. So he lied to her and then sent her out to tell those lies to the entire world asserting that they were the truth. What a guy.

    But there is precedent.

    Bill Clinton lied to his cabinet about Monica and sent them out to tell those lies to everyone. And they did and none of them resigned over it either.

    Susan gets a promotion, so as I said, what a guy.

  23. they should go after me. And I’m happy to have that discussion with them.

    Discussion? You just told them to bring it, asseyes. Discuss this, you mofo.

  24. If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me.

    - Hes come to believe hes untouchable.

  25. the mom jeans will do the commie/metrosexual in

  26. Even once were are rid of him forever, his legacy will continue with perpetually elected progressives, with nary a classical liberal in sight.

  27. We are getting an opportunity to watch the biggest Greek tragedy evah unfold on the largest stage in the world.

  28. “We are getting an opportunity to watch the biggest Greek tragedy evah unfold on the largest stage in the world.”

    eh? Which one? I don’t see anyone on the scene remotely resembling a Greek agonist, possessing an arete worthy the name.

  29. I see a bunch of needy whiners and takers who will die by the tens of millions.

  30. sdferr, he has a gift. Just ask him. Have you ever seen anyone who wears hubris as well?

  31. If as I guess, you mean dear ol’ bumblin’ Barry, he strikes me as better compared to a character in a Bugs Bunny cartoon than an Antigone or Oedipus. But just for the funsies, we’ll go with it for the nonce.

  32. Di, is that Solera?

    I can neither confirm nor deny that I write their user manuals nor that I’m in the process of converting their PDF admin guides into online help files.

  33. As long as it doesn’t make you feel dirty, di.

    No, just a little freaked out. We’re this drab little office in Salt Lake County where the engineers play chess and other fantasy card games and the CEO wears jeans and polo shirts every day and his office is neither in the corner nor is it any larger than anyone else’s.

    They tell us about how we’re becoming The Next Big Thing in the Big Data space, but we don’t see how we look to the rest of the IT world. All we know is that there are X number of tasks and bugs to take care of for the next iteration, and that the guy in the next cube needs to get such-and-such feature functioning before the other guy in the other cube can hook up the GUI for it.

    Me, I just see a series of screens that need the terminology and capitalization standardized. I’m thrilled that I can go right into the source files and make the changes myself instead of bugging the engineers to do it.

    I also find problems with the software here and there, and I can input the bug or suggestion or enhancement myself into the tracking system. I never had this kind of access at my other jobs: the engineers were in a different time zone and we could only ask for so much at any given time.

    I guess we’re like TV actors who spend all day shooting (not a glamorous endeavor by any means) and then suddenly they’re getting recognized and it’s like, whoa, where did this come from?

  34. sdferr, your point is well taken. Perhaps, I’m playing fast and loose with the definition because it isn’t as much Obama, but America I really meant.
