Liberals simply cannot perpetually hide their hatred for the most popular President of the past 50 years. They hate him with a passion.

It was awkward ugly and stupid, and he did it to recover because he stupidly began by saying he consulted all the “living” ex presidents. He should have just moved on or said “obviously” instead he made fun of Nancy Reagan holding seances.

She did nothing to deserve that it was his dopiness he was covering for. It was not a good start.

Still have not heard his plan for the economy. I thought that was the reason for the speech.

The man is a thug.

But we all knew that.

“I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing with any seances.”

And the press corps laughed heartily.

When he was asked if he’d spoken to former Presidents—

“I’ve spoken to all of them that-that-that are still living - without getting into the Nancy Reagan thing, seances and all that. And I read some of Lincoln’s writings.”

somewhat paraphrased but you can bet there will be sound clips on Hannity.

He got asked if he has been in touch with former living presidents, and he said something to the effect of “I havent been doing any Nancy Reagan Seiances (sp.) but I have been in touch with...”

He was trying to be funny. He wasn’t, but his intention IMHO was not to mock Nancy Reagan.

You know what? The whole seance thing with Nancy Reagan really creeped me out back when I found out about it. I think Obama’s comment was funny, acutally. You’d have to have a pretty thin skin to be offended by THAT, we there is OH SO MUCH to find offense with . . .

I heard that Nancy Reagan voted for him because she believes that he’ll support embryonic stem cell research.

Old news item: "Adviser downplays Hillary Clinton's conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt. June 24, 1996 . . . ."

I did not hear it. Maybe he was talking about Hillary?

I agree with Obama in this one respect.

Nancy’s consulations with Psychics helped legitimize new age beliefs. I loved the Reagans but this was a bad thing that Nancy did.

Most likely he meant to say ‘former presidents’ (but couldn’t come up with it) instead of ‘living presidents’ so to cover his gaffe, he went to mocking Nancy Reagan. Typical. Of course the press giggled.

You just do NOT make fun of an ex president’s elderly widow who was or maybe still is in the hospital. It shows mental sloppiness by Obama, I doubt he wanted to be mean but his choice of “joke” to recover his own verbal gaffe was just awful.

He is not readty for prime time or even afternoon time. Calling Sarah Palin, she never said anything like that!

I would agree.
Just a stupid thing that came out of his mouth. I'm guessing we will see more in the next 4 years

And what would his intention be if not to mock her? Why not say John Edwards, or fortune tellers? Why diss the wife of a great conservative President?

Since the dead elected him, the WhiteHouse may soon be haunted.

Actually the reporter, Lynn Sweet, asked 0 if he consulted any “living presidents”, which was just as stupid. I guess she meant “former presidents”, and 0’s response was clumsy and cruel.

It reveals his mindset, his thought patterns. The first thing that comes into his head is a mocking insult to a former first lady.

His plan for the economy should be to stop talking. The market shed 150 points in the 15 minutes that his pie-hole was emitting sound.

And yes, the crack about Nancy Reagan was crass and low-brow, but perfectly in comportment with the idiot that he is.

Liveblogging Obama's Presser: Q and A
Obama: "In terms of speaking to former president, I've spoken to all of them... I don't want to get any Nancy Reagan thing and do any seances.... re-read Lincoln's writing...as for the dog... Malia is allergic, so it has to be hypoallegernic...we have a preference to get a shelter dog..Michelle will be making [decisions about schools] a little later."

But it’s also pretty classless of Obama to ridicule a former first lady on his first press conference, even if what she did was worthy of ridicule, and especially since Obama has critizised the McCain campaign for their tone.

I don’t recall Nancy ever having a seance.

When did this happen?

Astrology I remember.

I am aware of all of the psychic stuff but never heard that Nancy Reagan held any real seances in the White House. Is that even true or another made up “fact” by BO?

Nancy has always been a little nutty from my perspective. It was a remark that did not have to be made. For the remark I can give Obama the A....................hole award!
