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

Obama Appears at the White House with Storm Advice

President Obama today demonstrated that he still knows the path from the Oval Office to the White House Briefing Room, materializing at the podium this afternoon to tell Americans to be prepared for the hurricane.

And to show that he’s on top of things.

Obama, who never takes questions from the White House press corps anymore, took one today that allowed him to portray himself as not the least bit concerned about the election when there’s a hurricane going on.

Q    What about the impact on the election, sir?

THE PRESIDENT:  I am not worried at this point about the impact on the election.  I’m worried about the impact on families, and I’m worried about the impact on our first responders.  I’m worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation.

Well, gosh, let’s give him that he’s not worried “at this point” about the impact on the election. Rest assured, everyone else in the West Wing is.

Since he can’t campaign, I would expect to see him making all kinds of announcements and possibly rescuing a puppy from a doghouse floating down Main Street somewhere.

  1. What happened to his grey hair? It’s now only grey at the temples and wisps here and there. For someone who is always talking about how grey he’s getting it’s kind of funny. I guess he knows no one in the msm will show any before and after pictures.

    The storm has been a bust in WMass so far. All schools and colleges were called off for nothing. It hasn’t really even started yet. Politicians love these storms and Howie Carr, whom I’m listening to now, loves to make fun of their inane, sophmoric advice.

  2. Once again, he is as useless as a screen door on a submarine! Love the way he beats a path to the exit as soon as the second question begins…what a guy! What a coward!

  3. I don’t know how to link it,but I got a message on Facebook that supports Iraqi vets. It gives all the phone numbers for the major news outlets urging people to flood them with calls to demand they cover the Benghazi cover up. If anyone else got this and can figure out how to post it here,that would be great.

  4. I heard him urge people to evacuate when they’re told. Wow! His wisdom knows no bounds. Thank God he is at the White House monitoring the storm. If I lived on the East Coast, I’d feel so much better.

    Amen to Susan’s cowardice in Benghazi comment below….

  5. Well, I would have hoped that he would be concerned that the storm could affect the ability of people to cast a vote. He cannot see any nuances or dimensions to a question, or anything that is not of direct concern to him.

    • He has a ace up his sleeve..
      Due to the CRISIS at hand, his annoyance will POSTPONE indefinitely the election until the nation can rebuild his damaged ego.

  6. Were Obama’s “questions from the WH press” pre-screened & scripted?
    Did he have his normal list of what ‘reporters’ were allowed to ask (those pre-screened & scripted) questions?

  7. Today’s round-up in the suburbs of Philly.

    A few areas already experiencing power outages. (not here, yet).

    I went to the mailroom in my lobby to check my mail box and found signs posted: USPS – NO MAIL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. OTOH, we have an independent contractor that removes the trash daily-they showed up today.

    Mr. “I care about me,me and me” should be busy at one of the local shelters for photo ops by noon tomorrow – “never let a crisis go to waste”.

    • Good to hear you haven’t lost services, Sadie. Please stay safe.

      What happened to USPS creed – “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
      That’s what unionization does to government employees…

  8. What a simp… The Pissant is on top of the storm yet when Americans call for help in Libya, the poor excuse for a leader is asleep at the wheel.

  9. what – no questions from the media? Even about Sandy? I’m sure he’s “offended” at people thinking he’s ducking responsibility – if no one has ever asked me any hard questions before, I suppose that I, too, would be offended that the media aren’t doing a better job whisking this story under the carpet and that anyone, let alone that wimp John McCain, question my handling of a situation that clearly required leadership and spine.

    If Ubama wins, the media is going down – the Benghazi story will come out and the courage of those defending our soil in that craphole will be juxtaposed to not only Ubama cowardice, but those in the media that were complicit in their dereliction of duty. I would say shame on the media but they (nearly) uniformly have none to call out.
