Right on time as usual…

Russell June 29, 2011 at 11:39 am

Late again.

Barry Standard Time

goatsred June 29, 2011 at 11:42 am

Same old same old.

jeff June 29, 2011 at 11:45 am

There was the “Let me be clear.”

Russell June 29, 2011 at 11:46 am

Is he going to cut back on his vacations and golf outings?

Mike Lester June 29, 2011 at 11:46 am

5 minutes in and whoever “corporate jet” is, he’s the new “Bush”…

juandos June 29, 2011 at 1:22 pm

5 minutes in and whoever “corporate jet” is, he’s the new “Bush”“…

On what planet did this new Bush thingie happen?

Mike Lester June 30, 2011 at 6:20 am

sorry, I was listening typing and chewing gum. Last count was “corporate jets” (the new Blame Bush) 6 x. The same corp. jets that were in last stimulus pkg.

Final count: Smartest Pres. Evah: got one out of two daughters age correct.

jeff June 29, 2011 at 11:47 am

Does work on it as long as it takes mean when Im not on the golf course?

Susan June 29, 2011 at 11:47 am

Give me more money or your food will be poisoned, your children will get kicked out of school, and the roads and bridges will crumble. Same BS, different day.

Russell June 29, 2011 at 11:49 am

Your’e naive.

There I said it.

Russell June 29, 2011 at 11:51 am

another 2,637 word answer.

Susan June 29, 2011 at 11:51 am

You are right Mike, “corporate jets” is the new straw man.

Star June 29, 2011 at 11:56 am

My bro-in-law is a corporate pilot. I don’t want to be alive if my sister’s money gets cut off.

lc southern June 29, 2011 at 11:52 am

What country was that where you were born?

jeff June 29, 2011 at 11:53 am

So that’s it…If no new taxes,WERE ALL GONNA DIE!!!

Star June 29, 2011 at 11:55 am

His constitutional law professor hat? I have never seen any brilliance there.

lc southern June 29, 2011 at 11:55 am

Like Todd is going to ask a hard question…

Star June 29, 2011 at 11:58 am

Apparently it was hard bec he can’t answer it.

jeff June 29, 2011 at 11:56 am

Keith,Now’s the time for your best Arnold Horshack imitation and yell out What about Syria, and what about Iran’s new missile silo’s?

Susan June 29, 2011 at 11:57 am

Sure, he didn’t know these questions ahead of time. Is he only calling on the Obama faithful for questions? F Chuck Todd is one of his boot lickers.

jeff June 29, 2011 at 11:59 am

We should send YOU a nice message to step down,lol

Susan June 29, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Since he deems DOMA is unconstitutional he doesn’t have to defend it? Why do we need the Supreme Court when we have his majesty Obama to deem laws unconstitutional.

Star June 29, 2011 at 12:07 pm

Gotta go–Seriously, I need one of my Drano cosmos for this. Blah blah, walk and chew gum, buncha cars, population growing older…

Susan June 29, 2011 at 12:08 pm

The deck is stacked on this so-called presser, so nothing of import will be asked. I’m off to watch Rush on the ditto-cam.

Mrs Compton June 29, 2011 at 12:26 pm

I’m watching the Peterfhof fountain on webcam get cleaned, a lot more interesting!

lc southern June 29, 2011 at 12:11 pm

What a waste of time and oxygen. Obama slams corporate jets and CEO’s…and he did not violate war powers act, yet soldiers are being paid combat pay…allow all illegal immigrants to stay. Union good, non union bad.

Dennis June 29, 2011 at 12:12 pm

Love how ‘entitlements’ are narrowly defined as SS and Medicare, what about Medicaid, bloated congressional staffing, MO’s trips not to mention the AF 1 taking his majesty cross country on fund raisers.

Mrs Compton June 29, 2011 at 12:25 pm

There is sooooooo much more that can be attacked, boggles my mind why they always go for the heartstrings first.

Sue June 29, 2011 at 12:13 pm

Great and timely conference. All Americans of good will are supporting our president.

Star June 29, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Keeeith–Sue is being cynical.

Keith Koffler June 29, 2011 at 12:58 pm

She got me.

MarjoJimbo June 29, 2011 at 12:20 pm

He really, really needs his teleprompter for the news conference.

Russell June 29, 2011 at 1:30 pm

MarjoJimbo, this is why he doesn’t do many press conferences. I just bumbles around looking for an answer. I’m sure they have tried to find a way to give him a ear piece so that someone could provide him with talking points on-the-fly.

What a spazzzzzz

Mrs Compton June 29, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Why isn’t this at 5 o’clock? I can’t get blutoed at 12 in the afternoon! Oh, yeah, Beck is going off the air in two days, so what’s the point, eh.

Star June 30, 2011 at 11:49 am

Blutoed–I am stealing that.

Mike Lester June 29, 2011 at 12:39 pm

maria and sasha do their homework “two days ahead”. REALLY??? How exactly does that work unless they’re working on time travel homework?

Star June 29, 2011 at 12:55 pm

Oh, no, did the offspring get dragged in again with some corny nonsense?

lc southern June 29, 2011 at 3:54 pm

Yes, while Mrs O is happy with the media leaving the children alone…somebodys gonna be mad!

Star June 30, 2011 at 12:09 pm

She want to go over those ages with him again.

Charles Curran June 29, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Barry O is so full of shit. One example. In Dec I signed a ‘Tax Cut’. Nobody held his feet to the fire. He extended the existing rates.

Mathew June 29, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Thanks for hosting this!

William June 29, 2011 at 1:25 pm

Now that it’s over, it’s a good time to post Mark Steyn’s article from a few days ago.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/270460/speechworld-vs-realworld-mark-steyn

Susan June 29, 2011 at 2:17 pm

Thank you for the link William. Excellent article by Mark Steyn. He dissects Obama’s flowery words and compares them to reality. I didn’t realize that Western military/aid accounts for 97% of Afghanistan GDP. That country is nothing but a money pit.

The last two sentences of the article says it all…”In Speechworld, “no hill is too steep, no horizon is beyond our reach.” In Realworld, that’s mainly because we’re going downhill. And the horizon is a cliff edge.” If we can’t stop this march to totalitarianism, we’ll be slipping over the edge of that cliff sooner than we all realize.

Laurie June 29, 2011 at 4:50 pm

Did you hear “We don’t want to spook the folks”? Is anyone else insulted?

Star June 30, 2011 at 11:50 am

I just stay insulted–24/7.

Dr. Richard Bend June 30, 2011 at 1:00 pm

It is because of the GOPs hateful rhetoric and deceitful ‘We are looking after the American People’ drivel that I no longer vote Republican. Their allegiance is clearly with the Banks, Wall Street and the large corporate firms who have make HUGE profits at the expense of the world economy. Unfortunately the Democrats aren’t much better. However, Obama is making a valiant effort in spite of the overt hostility the GOP and its media stooges have generated against the president. Imagine what could be achieved if there were no stupid BS to contend with. Just imagine a morally motivated Congress. Of course if that were to come to pass the universe would implode.

Susan July 2, 2011 at 10:41 am

Like you ever voted Republican in your life. There are very few Republicans among ambulance chasers and their cohorts. In case you haven’t noticed, Obama has been making the rounds collecting cash from all those fat cats you are criticizing.

Tim June 30, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Let’s hear about those drones in Somalia

Susan July 2, 2011 at 10:28 am

Tyranny.

Dr. Richard Bend June 30, 2011 at 1:04 pm

Where has he lied? all I know is the ‘hate’ that has been generated by jerk offs like you has interfered with the political process by not giving an elected president the lateral flexibility needed to make something work.

So far he’s had to slug it out with the GOP from day one and suffer insults to his lineage and passed associations that have been made into more than they ever needed to be…by a racist GOP.

Susan July 2, 2011 at 10:36 am

“Where has he lied?” Every single time he opens his mouth he lies.

The name-calling and race baiting doesn’t work any longer. He hung out with radicals and communists his whole life. By their fruits ye shall know them. I smell rotten fruit.
