  1. Keith, if you got to ask 1 question at the conference to Mr O, what would it be?

    Unfortunately I feel we will just see the Foggy Bottom Two Step today from both sides of the conference.

    Was also good to see the Senate is back in session handling a tough first vote of the season – Polar Bear Carcasses.

    • What is the over / under on actual number of questions taken?
      What is the over / under on questions about Benghanzi?

      I say 4 questions in total. 1 question about Benghanzi as it relates to Petraeus.

      • I have a feeling he is using this as a set up to blame not only Benghazi but the entire Afghanistan war fiasco on Petraeus. The CNN headlines were starting tie the sex “scandal” with decisions made in the war. How very convenient for Obama.

        • I have a feeling he knows that if he doesn’t answer any questions and no one testifies then nothing is going to happen. Even if any one does testify we are not going to know what happened.

          eventually we will become bored and move on to the next crisis/event/happening/war/etc.

  2. Will this be the one where the press demands answers on Benghazi? Or will the MSM demand to know if the Obamas will have cranberry sauce with their turkey?

  3. Are they going to be all softballs Kieth or are they going to make it real easy for him and set up a t? I see McCain and Graham are pre-empting him with calls for Benghazi hearings by special committee..
    No teleprompter can save him so I expect nothing but lies and bullshit from obumbler

  4. “Nobody wants to get to the bottom of this more than me”,I believe is the standard line,yet no answers. Lets ee if after the initial dodging of quesrions asked,if anyone does follow up.

  5. Does Neil Munro of the Daily Caller still have his WH press credentials??? He should have a medal for bravery! As I recall, he is the only member of the WH Press Corpse who had the guts to interrupt Obama in the middle of a TOTUS speech. Knowing full well that Obama nevet answers questions from reporters, he had the cajones to put him on the hot seat in the Rose Garden for adding 2M Dreamers to the already devastated unemployment numbers – a traitorous act to buy more votes.

    Who cares if the press corpse starts playing hardball with this fraud now that the barn door has been slammed shut! Obama has just given America the bird by elevating Valjar,Rice, and Holder to the exalted position of gatekeepers while he prepares to travel to exotic lands on his final victory tour.

    • Agree. the only way the “Press” is going to realize they bet on the wrong horse over the wisdom of the masses is to see how future advertizing revenues comes in. Qurky sign, I know, but advertising revenue is how they get paid. Let’s see how the Super Bowl advertizing dollars come in. My suspicion is that it will be slow to fill up and come in less than last year.
      Just a Thought. Maybe we will see more “Union Label” and Go Daddy “Rent a OWS protester” commerials.

  6. Maybe the administration flew in ‘The Pimp with a Limp’ to start things off. Followed by the editor of People, Tiger Beat and the always hard hitting journalistic pros that they are, TMZ.

  7. I would ask beyond the whole Peterarus scandal, what are his thoughts about some in his own party saying that $250,000 is not the number to start with in terms of perhaps raising income taxes and he is willing to bend on that number since he never did once on the campaign. I also ask that now since the election is over will he actually talk about the raise in household goods IE food that will take place over the next year due to last year’s drought and is a tax on everyone.

  8. We get–you said it all three times–you think the people voted to tax rich people more…Just bec they voted for you doesn’t mean they want what you are offering–do your liberal buds want Gitmo open? Do they want car check abandoned? Well, maybe the majority of people who for some reason wanted you back in did not want taxes raised on their boss, why then might lay them off.

        • He said that Rice went on shows and reiterated what she was told.
          So WHO told her that it was just about a video? Who DIDN”T tell her about the intelligence received 4 days earlier that it wasn’t about a video?

          • He also told Lindsey Graham and John McCain to come after him and not Rice. Graham responded that he absolutely intended to do that. Works for me. On this one, I am behind Graham 100%.
            Mr. Revenge is a blowhard wanna be bully backed up by his Chi-town gang and the propagandists and an unchecked 2nd term. Take a look around, anybody see America?

    • Makes it look as if he is her knight in shining honor — personalize it.

      She’s a company man, so to speak, and shilled the shite when asked to do so by BO. Now he’s her big-muscled defender. He must feel himself well protected to invite attack by McCain, etc. The smoke must be already so thick that he knows they won’t find her.

  9. In my household we listened well when you spoke about families with elderly or disabled parents. Mom died last week, my stepdad continues on now without him but he must also deal with a predatory lender, Citimortgage.
    We tried the modification program HAMP but the bank was deceptive and manipulative, to the point of outright fraud.

    We would like to see you offer a similar program to homeowners that would allow modifications or refinance with other lenders such as smaller banks that are more local. If my folks had accurate, professional loan servicing, within all of the rules and laws set up by the state and federal banking administrations, they would have paid off their loan by now. Instead the bank defrauded them into staying in an 11% loan. Thus, their loan that began at 89K in 1989 has a payoff today of roughly the same amount.

    Can’t we do better to help American homeowners? Citimortgage staff said they would offer my folks a write down of principle. They tricked them out of a write down, lied about accepting trial loan payments, and claimed that despite their promises, the loan is owned by an “investor” who makes all of the decisions.

    What happened? Can HAMP be fixed? Can we apply benefits that would have gone to Citimortgage to a new lender to fix my parent’s loan?

    Can you help us?
    Thanks, frustrated in Connecticut

  11. I cannot believe he said he was not re-elected JUST to BASK in re-election. I doubt anyone voted for him to do that. He really does view his job and role as being a celebrity.

    Also, why does he not know what the FBI protocols for reporting investigations to him actually are? I heard his comment as stating he does not know what the protocols are.

  12. Keith, is Jay Carney just offstage giving Barry the “stretch it” sign?
    Talk about long winded answers, and a whole lot ot repeating going on here.
