As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

The Briefing’s Lamest Attempt at Humor

I’m sorry Jay, but you’re going to have to do better than this.

Here’s what Obama said during the campaign.

If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain, when I’m in the White House, I’ll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I’ll walkk on the picket line with you as president of the United States of American.

Dodging a question today about President Obama’s willingness to live up to his promise by joining a picket line such as the one in Wisconsin being led by state workers, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney offered up this pre-packaged one-liner.

And I would just say that whatever shoes he’s wearing, he is always standing with America’s working men and women, and America’s middle class.

Ehhhhh boy. Maybe it’s because Jay is rusty because he never had to write any material for Biden, who provided endless amusement effortlessly.

  1. I first got whiff of this story when I was in my vehicle today with Rush on the radio. I heard him play the 2007 audio from Obama’s Spartanburg speech. When you make statements like that, they are almost impossible to back up and Obama should have known that. His political naivete is, at times, almost incredible to beleive yet with a media that remains his lapdog (instead of a watchdog) almost any past comment he has made (that is ludicrous) will never see the light of day.

  2. Assuming that he meant that he would be there in spirit and not in person would make sense. What wouldn’t make sense is the POTUS, the SecretService, the local LEO’s and all the rest trying to march for solidarity with the unions.
