Obama’s Softball Interviews

by Keith Koffler on February 21, 2013, 7:26 pm

Responding to an article in Politico detailing how Obama both avoids and molds the press, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney boasted this week that President Obama “has given 591 interviews since he took office.”

Here are a few of them.

Of course, they had some poor flunky count all those interviews to make the WhiteHouse press corps sound like a bunch of whiny liars.
We can expect an abject apology from MrHenry on behalf of his associates for being whiny liars who were questioning MrObama’s willingness to talk to, well, anybody.

Julie, your comment took me back to Bubba when asked, “Boxers or Briefs?” Of course, we all know now, he probably wasn’t wearing either. LOL

Soft or crunchy?

“Soft or crunchy?” – Island Girl

Didn’t you know? The Classless Warrior already answered this question. In writing.

“… I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” – Obama Dogsnacker, “Dreams from My Father” http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/04/obama-as-a-boy-ate-dog-meat/

WHY did Obama do this?

“Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate…” – Obama SnakeSwallower, ibid.

There may be something to that. Let’s see;

- He ate a grasshopper, so that explains his restlessness, constantly moving from vacation hotspot to vacation hotter spot, and leaping away from people who may actually ask tough questions,

- He ate a snake, so that explains his spewing of venom at the smallest threat and the way he slithers out of any actual Presidential responsibilities, as well as the way he is gradually but thouroughly squeezing America until it’s no longer able to survive;

- He ate a dog. This explains his utter lack of morals, tendency to eat whatever liberal poop he may come across, regurgitate it on our living room carpets via TV, and then eat his own vomit only to cr@p it out on us later. He must have ate the ugly little yappy kind that are handled like a wayward possession by ugly, bitter women with large rear ends who are too angry to have actual people like them.

I wonder if he ever ate a jackass, a sloth, or a pile of bull dung? If so, I’d say that REALLY validates this theory of “taking on the characteristics of the animal you eat”…

The dog was tough. The snake was tougher. The grasshopper was crunchy. There is no “soft”. (sarc on) Nothing in Obama’s life was ever soft, mostly because of White Racism and Republicans and probably George Bush. Remember that, hater, and go somewhere to be ashamed of your racism, give the Goverment all of “your” money, and let the genius work! (sarc off)

I prefer all road kill Original Recipe. Have you guys ever seen a show called EXTREME CHEAPSKATES? It’s pretty amusing. People wash their laundry in the shower and dumpster drive for prepared sandiwches in those plastic boxes (but only from the best stores). They are not poor, either–they just don’t want to pay. I have no idea what this has to do with anything–except maybe this WH does not know what it is dealing with.

Is it true that Politico has been shut out of the WH because of calling Obama the master puppeteer?

In reading the Politico article and then not being granted access to the off the record mtg today, I would say YES.

well duhhhhh.. selective interviewers at selective sites. If he were to show up unannounced to do a 1 hour audience participation town hall without pre-setup questions, he would flounder in a heart beat. He is nothing without TOTUS or a screened question script.

If he had any balls he would do a live WH Press Conference at least every other week, esp since his schedule is so light.

Geez Blarney (Carney), you must think some of us can not see through your BS.

Still waiting for him to pop up on an episode of Judge Judy. Think it might be the only TV show with high ratings he hasn’t shown his face on…yet. Carney’s been kissing the Blarney Stone too long if he thinks we’re buying his story that shooting the breeze with the Pimp with the Limp constitutes an interview with the press.

Judge Judy would ask hard questions, and Obama would cry.

That made me laff–yes! She would scare the supercilious off him! Seeing him on THE VIEW with those prissy crossed legs and fakey grin, well…can we change the subj?

Aw, who are we kidding. Judge Judy is a late rent payer’s worst nightmare, but she probably luuuuvs this character….

I forced myself to watch the video. Barry looks so effeminate in The View clip. And that fake, folky accent he puts on makes me crazy!
