  1. Well, at least Obamacare is still safe. The Supreme Court — including, and especially John Roberts, denies physicians group’s emergency request to block portions of Obamacare.

    After all, they are just medical professionals, how could they know what is best for their field or their patients. And they certainly aren’t qualified to speak about the “Roberts Tax”.

    • like Micheal replied I am blown away that any body able to get paid $9729 in 1 month on the internet. this website… T­E­C­8­­0.C­O­M

  2. 10:45 Check I-Pad (Blackberry?)

    11:40 Pander to a hand selected group from OFA and attack the GOP for actually caring about paying for spending. Watch for the lady fainting at around the eight minute mark — likely the amount of time Obama will be late, since it will take him more than 40 minutes to walk to the briefing room and get “ready for prime time”.

    4:15 Discuss ways of defending against more pesky reporters still seeking the facts on Benghazi after nearly 16 months of transparency.

    • 12 noon – Try to call Michelle again and see if she will take my call this time.

      4:30 pm – Try to call Valerie and see what I’m supposed to do next.

    • Update: POTUS started 15 minutes late for a 16 minute talk. Got the ideal human prop — a working mom of two soldiers who has to wear a coat inside to stay warm. Also mentioned another letter writer, a good lady in CA. No mention of the make-up of the human props behind him (most likely OFA fawns) — or the crowd in the room who applauded at the merest hint of Obama’s greatness of the ugliness of Congress.

      ODD: He noted that Congress might do the right thing and might even get some things done this year, but somehow NEVER said a word about the idea that somebody might want to actually PAY for these benefits. Just the emotional: They’re not looking for a hand out — just a shot. Never met anyone who wants a paycheck instead of the pride of working (What are YOU going to be doing in 2017, Barack?)

      Another tug at the emotions to make the GOP look bad. Good news, nobody fainted (that he noted, at least. With a room full of OFA worshipers, likely half the room had the vapors).

    Since he’s never on time, shouldn’t it read: 11:40 am-ish.

  4. The “WH press corps” MUST know Obama’s “real” ‘daily schedule’… (aka; getting up at 9-10am, secret meetings with Val Jar, partying late…)
    I wonder when SOMEONE will tell us the truth about life in the Obama White House…

  5. It could be the pres is not a morning person. This is a very distinct charcteristic. My daughter and her dad both were not, and of course, being one, I was very judgmental–you slugs, etc. But it comes from within. And it seems pretty immutable. Both of them liked to work second or third shift–and I could not imagine doing that.

    • Looks like Carny’s not a morning person either. Today he showed up at this presser with a scruffy beard — although likely more than a single day’s hair

      Perhaps he’s growing some “gravitas”.

    • Entirely possible. Especially since he grew up in Hawaii time zone. Could be why they like to go there. And it just occurred to me that maybe Mrs O is also househunting while staying behind. Maybe they can build on Oprah’s land…..
