Obama $40 Event Delayed Until 1 PM ET

by Keith Koffler on December 22, 2011, 12:30 pm

Come on, we’re only running 45 minutes late.

And the White House has decided that this publicity stunt will be sufficient briefing for the press, canceling Jay Carney’s scheduled 1:30 pm briefing.

The event has concluded.


A.Men December 22, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Fake, anti-Christian President-In-Name-Only!

langley barfly December 22, 2011 at 12:52 pm

“Canceling Jay Carney’s briefing”…
WHO CARES?!? Since NOTHING is SAID or ASKED at so-called “press briefings”… its just Obama PROPAGANDA

Mike C December 22, 2011 at 3:00 pm

Obamaganda I call it

veritaseequitas December 22, 2011 at 12:58 pm

Uh…is Reggie Love on vacay? I thought he said he was the dude that keeps Little Barry on track? They must be in the latrine snortin’ and huffin’ so L.B. can build up some courage to lie to the American people once again. Vote him off the island in 2012.

RWC December 22, 2011 at 1:10 pm

He retired I believe.

jeffery December 22, 2011 at 2:16 pm

he’s doing the flotus, now.

Keith Koffler December 22, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Here come the average people. These are what we in the press corps refer to as “the sob stories.”

RWC December 22, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Ohhhh noooooo. His schedule is in shambles without Reggie Love to keep him on time!!

Calls For Tax Cut Extensions For 160,000,000 Working Americans – Too Bad There Are Only 140,500,000 Americans Working Today

Star December 22, 2011 at 1:11 pm

Why get technical.

jeff December 22, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Right/ like he uses things like facts, or statistics:)

Star December 22, 2011 at 1:09 pm

Oh boy–here come the people who needed the money for chemo…

Car in December 22, 2011 at 1:20 pm

Chemo’s only $40?

who knew?

Car in December 22, 2011 at 1:19 pm

Keith – these poor folks REALLY need that $40… for the next two months.

Otherwise … RECESSION.

And it will all be the Republicans’ fault.

*single tear slides down cheek

Mike C December 22, 2011 at 3:01 pm

hey, it would pay 1/3 of my electric bill

Tony N December 22, 2011 at 3:07 pm

for only 2 months Mike ….. we should be going for a year at least .

Mr. T. December 22, 2011 at 1:42 pm

The House Repubs should have their own press conference, trucking out people who will save “x” number of dollars over one year, as opposed to just two months.

I’m glad Barry’s got a handle on the big picture with his little $40 stunt.

jeffery December 22, 2011 at 2:17 pm

2 months is an eternity to a cochroach. That’s why obama thinks he’s good, and we’re ready to stomp him into oblivion.

cindylu December 22, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Still no press conference? Will it just be the teleprompter with O’s assistant typing it in or will he actually BE THERE? hmmm, maybe he needed to get out to walmart

cindylu December 22, 2011 at 2:02 pm

Is there a stream anywhere? I gotta see this

cindylu December 22, 2011 at 2:03 pm

oops I mean a video-guess it’s over, still want to see it though

Tony N December 22, 2011 at 2:07 pm

Common Mr. President your Economic Policy is Only being Held together by 45 dollar a Pay check My God thats a Success Story worth Saying Enough is Enough !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mr. T. December 22, 2011 at 3:24 pm

Been noticing an increasing number of stories the last few days (mostly AP) saying how the economy is strengthening, layoffs are down, the job market is getting healthier, unemployment apps are lower, blah blah blah. Seems like the MSM is warming up for its onslaught next year proclaiming how things really are getting better under Barry and we can’t change horses in mid-stream, etc. etc. Makes me sick.

Tony N December 22, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Yeah all the 4th best President will need is 11 % Voter fraud to push him over the top and back into the Head position as Whitehouse luggage Dept’s Commander in Chief heading up the 4th most important Presidency in Modern history . AWESOME next 5 years we have in store for us with the Only piece of Bipartisan accomplished legislation that the 4th most Important Prez over saw was a Bill that he is able to Now Lock up anyone for any reason for a infinite period of time …….

cindylu December 22, 2011 at 5:04 pm

I’ve seen that too-they are all mostly from AP -surprise surprise


Anonna December 22, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Oh, Keith , are those poor press corps members hunkering down under that very chilly air vent you mentioned last time? My eyes fill with tears as I type.

langley barfly December 22, 2011 at 5:07 pm

If there is nothing to “report” (re: “Obama daily schedule” or “press/propaganda daily briefs”) what is the purpose of a WH “press corps”…?

srdem65 December 22, 2011 at 5:02 pm

Wow! I leave for some last minute shopping only to find that someone let the dogs back in the house and some of them are mean.
The topic is Bo, the dog, and the conversation veers into “mission accomplished” and basic math.

Keith always seems to choose the current and relevant topics.

langley barfly December 22, 2011 at 5:11 pm

…alot of Obama propaganda over on that post.
Looked like word got out and the sycophants had to show up to defend the “Dear Leader”…

Star December 22, 2011 at 5:23 pm

and then the drudgery begins…sigh.

Susan December 22, 2011 at 5:22 pm

Evidently the demagoguery worked — Boehner caved. The House is going to vote on a 2-month extension tonight. Unbelievable…

cindylu December 22, 2011 at 5:29 pm

They all make me sick

Jack December 22, 2011 at 6:21 pm

Why isn’t there anyone from the GOP or else, showing how much could the American tax payers do with the billions wasted on failed programs like Solyndra, Obamacare et all? Pretty sure that it will be more than filling a few gas tanks among many other useful things. It was, as usual nothing more that Obama’s pure and simple demagogy, besides copying Stossel’s style. We are not amused.

cindylu December 22, 2011 at 6:39 pm

“Rick Santorum said at last week’s GOP debate that the tax cut extension — which comes out of taxes earmarked for paying into Social Security — could threaten the program’s long-term viability.

“Is there a Social Security Trust Fund or not?” Santorum said. “And is the Social Security system going to be funded by payroll taxes or not? And the president of the United States runs around and talks about how Republicans don’t care about Social Security and how they’re going to rip apart the Social Security system, and he’s the one defunding the Social Security system.

“I’m all for tax cuts,” he added. “But to take the Social Security Trust Fund that is so sacrosanct to the Democrats when it comes for election time and then to use that as a tax and then try to beat up Republicans for not supporting the tax cut is absurd.”

Why is no one paying attention to this guy?

Susan December 22, 2011 at 7:28 pm

I’m with you cindylu. Rick Santorum is a true conservative, but as we learned today, they are not held in very high regard by the establishment Republicans.

February 17, 2012 has been designated Federal Employee Appreciation Day, a day for Federal Employees to voice their disgust with their government. On February 17, 2012 Federal Employees are encouraged to take the day off to enjoy a four day weekend and send a message to Congress, the White House, and the American people to reflect on the underappreciated work of the Federal employee.

My name is Mandinka and I approve this message.

I’ve mistakenly changed my admin priveleges on one of my blogs to “guest”. I need the blogger people to restore it. I cannot find an actual email or contact form anywhere, and I’ve googled everything, including the Blogger Group on Google Groups, where they try to push everyone who needs support. I would gladly pay them for better service..

Social or Secluded ChoiceGuests booking a bungalow at the Sofitel Bora Bora Marara Beach and Private Island can choose from 95 bungalows in five categories. All are on the small side when compared with newer properties, but they are recently renovated with great attention to style and detail such as sleek, modern furnishings and striking burgundy, chocolate, green and gold fabric accents. All feature air conditioning, a plasma TV, and a king sized signature Sofitel MyBed, but their locales vary greatly.
