      • J — If you are asking me — you can see my tsunami of idiot comments — indicating that I am not a candidate to sit through one of these things and it is unlikely I will ever do so again.

      • I actually listened to most of it.
        (This does not infer or claim that I heard everything.)
        The best line was in questions, I think Major asked a multi-question, question. 0 said suffice it to say I will be very busy these next 2 years.
        ???!!!!!!
        Ok. I can see this in today’s schedule.

        • I agree. He tried to cut him off, and Major finished the entire question. o answered like he did all the others. Talked in circles, kept bringing up mim. wage. Did anyone count how many times he mentioned mim wage?

  1. Mary Burke Quote of the Day:

    “Whew. Glad that’s over. Now I can go back to doing nothing. Who do I speak to about getting my brother’s $5,000,000.00 back?”

    (A note from my attorney — This is not an actual quotation.)

  2. Do all the “reporters” have their pre-scripted “questions” in and approved by the Obama regime…?

    Heaven-Forbid! these “reporters” ASK a REAL CHALLENGING question to Obama.

    • He will spend every waking moment doing his job the best that he can to keep us safe.
      He is sure he will take actions Congress will not like.
      Childhood education. Calls for parents to be involved with their children, making sure they do their work, etc. (Not Government)
      Submitting a request to Congress to stop spread of Ebola.
      New authorization to confront ISIS
      Mention Congress has 5 weeks to pass budget.
      Point: Time to take care of buisness. Plans to put in place for our future. He is optomistic.
      He is inspired every single day.
      He continues to believe we are more than red and blue states but United States.
      U.S. has big things to do. We will make progress if we do it together.
      I missed a couple of comments.

  3. Until Obama is required to wear a lie detector when he makes speeches, I will no longer listen to him. And add a voice analyzer to complete the lie detector process.

  4. The 3 places …… ebola funding…. military force against ISIS …. budget….(which has been miraculously blocked).

    He’s optimistic …. have good reason to be ….yeah, now that the adults are in charge.

    • I just typed some of what he stated. It is in Moderation.
      Regarding the mim. wage.
      He is determined to raise mim. wage.
      He has never made comment to the people who lost their wonderful jobs due only to ocare.
      Jobs need to be brought back in this Country, before he discusses raising mim. wage.

      • I still get the 330 loading error message thingy, and have to remember, even though the comment shows up, I have to remember to clean out the old message box immediately, otherwise if I clean it out just before posting a new reply, it shows up under the last reply of the thread.

        That made no sense. BUT, happy I haven’t been caught in moderation for awhile now. (knock wood)

  5. Julie Pace — called it on his policies — OMG — he is still trying to blame “this town” and he pretends he is the adult in the room who is accountable …to break the gridlock.

    Lies and lies and lies.

  6. Immigration …. comprehensive. The trap. And still with the Dreamers and undocumented….Liked the Senate Bill …but Johnny couldn’t get it done….so boo hoo Amnesty…EO. The rest is crap.

    • No mention on Obamacare and its effect on the wonderful economy he is praising and no questions about it either — so far. Ocare — the elephant in the room.

  7. The tricky dick — any EO — is superseded by legislation. So, I will act — the damage will be done — and blah blah blah — we suck at reversing any actions taken with legislation.

    He is not backing down on EO Amnesty.

  8. Painful to listen to this rube. His idea to help economy is infrastructure spending – he has NO clue how private sector works. And, he loves to hear himself talk and goes on and on and on and on…
    He will be right at home in a law classroom after leaving Washington…

  9. My take:
    MrO resigned to the knowlege that it’s all over. Asks for a cigarette as he leans against the wall facing the Repub firing squad.

    it’s over, he knows it. he failed, he lost whatever he thought he had and he will never get it back.

    • Garrett asked a cluster of questions — to which Obama wanted time to write them down. They included, as I recall, ISIS, the Keystone pipeline, and a few other things. Garrett also mentioned that if Obama really missed the journalists, the press holds these weekly. As with Ed Henry, it was a bit of a jokingly contentious exchange. Hopefully the White House will post it.

      • I liked the questions. I also like the issue of o trying to cut him off, and Garrett making clear to him, he could handle it. (In so many words) Than he continued with the question.

  10. Possible that these are the most questions he has ever gotten in public from the press than the entire 6 years he has been hanging around. Not that the answers are beyond pap.

    But he must be exhausted and irritated thinking — what if I have to do this again? He’ll blow eventuall.

  11. HA! Pretty much low voter turnout because he wasn’t out there campaigning…..People too stupid to vote without his cheerleading … or thinking you are going to give them a phone or pay their mortgage.

    Essentially he is saying without his personal involvement nothing will work! ME!!!!

  12. Clearly he cannot connect the dots between excessive regulation and government interference, its effect on businesses, and that effect on workers and the effect on their lives.

  13. This is pure, unfiltered mental illness. Mr. Obama, the lights have been turned off…it is time to STFU. Even the press corp are falling asleep. The man is having a meltdown on live TV!

  14. I watched more of this than I usually do, just to hear if he’d admit what happened yesterday. he didn’t.

    the spin is apparently that turnout was low, and since the right people didn’t get out and vote, the results are somehow not authentic, and don’t tell us anything about how Americans really feel. the NYT has several articles along those lines today.

    I see Vox has something too but I couldn’t bring myself to read it; anybody else?

  15. Arrogant SOB!
    He doesn’t know what WE THE PEOPLE just told him!
    GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT!
    WE CAN’T STAND YOU AND YOUR COMMUNIST POLICIES!
    WE WANT OUR AMERICA BACK!
    WE WANT OUR BORDERS CLOSED!
    WE WANT 35 MILLION WE T BACKS DEPORTED!
    WE DON’T WANT NOR NEED YOUR UNAFFORDABLE CARE TAX!
    WE DON’T WANT OUR WEALTH SPREAD AROUND!
    WE DON’T CARE ABOUT THE POOR! THEY SHOULD NOT VOTE!
    STOP THE FREE RIDES!
    END COMMUNISM!
    LET THE BEST OF THE BEST BECOME THE BEST THEY CAN BE!
    LET THE WORTHLESS UNDER-CLASS POOR DO THE BEST THEY CAN OR STARVE! WE NO LONGER CARE!
    THE NEW AMERICA!
    THE FREEDOM TO SUCCEED, THE FREEDOM TO FAIL!
    NO FREE RIDES! WORK OR STARVE! SLEEP UNDER A BRIDGE!
    OR BUILD YOU A CASTLE! BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE! OR JUST DO NOTHING! YOUR CHOICE! WE OWE YOU NOTHING!

  16. Actually what amazed me , at one point he said that bills would cross his desk and he would not sign them.
    As a Canadian, it is quite unbelievable that he is like a little emperor .

  17. Soooooo will AF1 get a break from no more fundraising (I mean official trips)? Will we see a shortened vacation this holiday season?? Maybe up early in the morning and reviewing his daily brief before 9AM?? Golfing every other weekend?

    Maybe MOTUS will be put on a new schedule too.

    Nice to dream huh

    • I was thinking earlier, that maybe he has golf planned for the morning since he had to work so……..hard talking in circles at the Press Conf. today.

    • I did watch the clip. I don’t know if he cares about any race. I think he is only concerned about himself, and what he gets out of all these actions.

  18. After watch that train wreck, I have only one comment (that’s probable not true, I have a lot to say). Holy cow! This man is living in la-la land. Wasn’t he the one that said elections have consequences? Our boy-child president has lost all sense of reality, and he needs one of his cronies to fire up a blunt and offer to pay for a round of golf.

    My goodness, he reminds me of my son, when he was young. Let’s blame everyone but ourselves for the problems that we instigated. That’s fine when you’re 5 years old, but not so cool when you’re in your 50s, AND the president of the greatest nation the world, from the beginning of time, has ever seen.

    Long live the Republic
    Macon Man OUT!

    • Except he did not pout or sneer this evening. You know that look a toddler will give you sometimes. Except with a toddler when they are not given their way, they usually stop the pouting and that l sneer look.

  19. So, I tortured myself and watched Obummer’s press conference, swearing like a sailor and screaming at the TV the entire time. I’m still in a bad mood over that. He’s the most dangerous president ever.

    I would love to see a Republican stand up and point out that every time Obummer says he’s going to act on his own, he’s essentially flipping the bird to the American voters. Obummer thinks he can completely disregard the voters and do what he wants because he’s king. We have never seen such an arrogant PO(t)(u)S.

    I’ve been floating between anger, frustration, and near tears all afternoon because I just want to know where the HELL is the outrage over this! I am SO pissed off and fed up. I want to smack that snarky, arrogant little jackass!!

    • No snark intended. But do you know how to tell when our one and only boy-child president is lying? His mouth is moving!! (I do apologies for that)
      The real answer is:. When he’s joking, he’s really telling the truth. When he’s trying to look serious, he’s lying.
      There is no way, on god’s green acre, that this man is going to attempt to, even try to, even think about playing with anyone but his self.

      Long live….oh you know the rest.
      Macon Man OUT!

    • I tried to listen to the clip. It kept coming off. When o cut him off today, I thought Major came back with you can handle everything.
      Those were not the exact words, however I thought he did fine.
      If you see the clip on another site, please let us know.

  20. So, the new Dem meme is because of the low turnout, Barry can still push his agenda because ALL the people who didn’t vote still support his policies??

    Insane.

  21. Top Drudge headline: under a pic of the arrogant PO(t)(u)S: 26 MONTHS:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2822484/WHAT-LANDSLIDE-Obama-threatens-vetoes-executive-orders-Americans-reject-giving-Republicans-historic-gains-Congress.html

    WHAT LANDSLIDE? Obama threatens vetoes and executive orders – including immigration reform THIS YEAR – after Americans reject him by giving Republicans historic gains in Congress

    ● ‘Congress will pass some bills I cannot sign,’ the president warned
    ● He has only vetoed two minor bills since his inauguration in 2009
    ● And ‘I’ll take some actions that some in Congress will not like,’ Obama added, referring to threatened executive orders
    ● Those include a bold move on immigration ‘before the end of the year’
    ● President sounded more like a winner than a loser despite his policies being repudiated on a national scale
    ● Never articulated a single policy where he would shift his position to align with GOP majorities in both houses of Congress

    • The take action that some in Congress will not like.
      Everyone in Congress both parties need to have that repeated to them over and over and over. To than be reminded that they represent us.
