In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Video || Friday’s White House Press Conference

Here’s the video for you. I think you’ll agree the questions are incisive and straight to the point.

H/T to one of our readers, WNY_ROC.

  1. Thanks WNY – and thanks to Keith for posting. More entertaining than going the “full monty”. ☺

    Back to the press conference….
    “Your highness, when I said that you are like a stream of bat’s piss, I only mean that you shine out like a shaft of gold when all around it is dark”

        1. My Favorite Faux President Movie is The American President. I think of Andrew Shepard as my perfect prezzy all the time. Great quotes from that movie that led to the tv series The West Wing, which crossed the aisle :D

  2. This administration continues to be accumulative of a tragedy of errors.
    It just proves the least desirable person to have his hand firmly on the switch is a guy whose hand has always been firmly elsewhere, as on the “present” button.

  3. Good humor. Monty Python’s Flying Circus was a must watch back in the psychedelic 70’s. Thanks Keith for the flashback.

    1. Nuts.

      “Now we see the violence inherent in the system.”

      (It’s been a long week filled with pre-dawn trips to get my boy to football practice. I’m about tuckered-out.)

  4. Gee, it all made sense back then.
    This clip reminds me of the ten reasons I never ran for public office; my misspent youth from 1965 to 1975.

  5. Audrey. even though Troy`s rep0rt is incredible… last wednesday I bought Renault 5 from having made ?6070 this – five weeks past and-over, ten-k last munth. this is definitely the easiest-job Ive ever done. I began this three months/ago and practically straight away was bringin in more than ?84, per-hour. I use this website, ….

    1. I keep hearing buzz that the admin wants to shut down the WH Press conferences entirely as they are not productive. Carney proves that every time, oh wait, maybe that’s the plan ?

      Surely Obama can control his “transparency” with press releases just as easily? Heh.

  6. Love Monty Python. Takes me back to the carefree un-PC days of yesteryear.

    Still think the winner of the stupidest question ever asked in one of Preezy Revenge’s rare press conferences was the one proffered by NYT Jeff Zeleny in April 2009:

    “Thank you, Mr. President. During these first 100 days, what has surprised you the most about this office, enchanted you the most about serving this in office, humbled you the most and troubled you the most?”

  7. I’ve been slogging around in the world of AQ, MB, Sunni, Shia, history, terror so this is a bit of self indulgence. Included is a link to a very short comment on MB and AQ and recent events. I thought it was useful.

    My short, perhaps erroneous summary, is that the MB and AQ are working toward the same end — defeat of the infidel and creation
    of a worldwide caliphate — but differ in the means. The MB favor less violent subversion within a system and the AQ, more violent jihad.
    Oftentimes they clash.

    Given this, how does one interpret Obama’s comment about the uptick in violence in Iraq — largely Sunni against Shia as its most basic — that “those who attack civilians are the enemies of Islam”?

    If you are so inclined, here is the link.

  8. Reading a really good book so far, American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character by Diana West. The intro alone has me hooked — retells the story William Wirt and his charge of infiltration of the American government during the Roosevelt years. You would swear that you are living in the Obama years and watching Issa try to get any information at all. Replete with collusion, witness tampering and character assassination.

    Too long to quote relevant passages to today and there are many,

    I am late to the party — apparently this book has caused quite a buzz in the conservative crowd — but I can tell you it’s been along time since an intro has grabbed my attention like this. It is also very readable.

    I am off to donate my tin foil hat to Goodwill. No longer needed.
