Obama Press Conference | Today | Self

Posted on 11/07/2008 12:25:44 PM PST by DouglasKC

Will have exact details when transcript is made available...

During his first press conference a reporter asked a question about what Presidents he would consult. Obama's answer was to the effect of the living ones, not like Nancy Reagan seances or words to that effect...

Obama is from Chicago. He does not want to piss off the Dead Vote!

Nancy Reagan is still a beautiful woman in her sunshine years. What will Michelle Obama look like. Anybody?

Well, assuming she doesn't brood any more young:

But, of course, the only living president that would try to help him is Carter. Clinton would surely lead him in the wrong direction.

On the other hand, the Bushes would probably give him advice they believed would help.

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.

His inexperience shining through. It didn't hurt America....THIS time.

If he made a mocking remark, don’t worry about it.

85% of the American public finds mockery of elderly and the dead to be despicable. The 15% of the population who are diehard lefties think it’s “clever”.

We’re going to win in 2012 if we play it right.

His voters will be furious when they find out he dissed talking to the dead.

Given that dead people were one of his core constituencies this was a very risky political move [/sarcasm off

Well he’s real presidential, isn’t he?

I sure his hip hop fans won’t care. He doesn’t want to ingratiate himself to whites anyway so I’m surprised he didn’t dis all the previous presidents - living or dead.

If he really said that, that demonstrates that that little ole mean streak, with a dollop of dripping sarcasm, he occasionally showed on the trail is, as suspected, actually a major personality trait.

Hateful.

You can’t minimize how many people Obama offended with this in his very first press conference!

Certainly worse than anything Saraha Palin has ever said, and right up there with Biden. Worse because he was so stupid in his first outing as prez elect.

Youse guys don’t get it. Nancy Reagan’s alleged seances is an obscure and forgotten anecdote to most of us. But not in the elitist circles of 0bama Ayers, apparently, which is why it came out so naturally. This was a slip, and a moment of truth.

Caught this immediately. What I hated the most about this untrue slam was P.E. Obama’s mocking tone, and the reporters’ gleeful laughing. Nancy Reagan is ill and elderly. We all prayed for Obama’s poor Grandmother, too. The word I am thinking of is really not appropriate for me to say about our new President.

I heard it too. First time out and he insults a good woman. IMHO this is good news because it shows us these people will not be able to contain their hatred of everything middle America holds dear. They will over reach, over insult, and over indulge the power they have.

The next 4 yrs will be a bare knuckle battle..but the good news is BO will energize the base as no one since Carter/Clinton. And don’t forget:

Carter beget Reagan
Clinton beget Gingrich
Who will BO beget..??..

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?

You're doubting His word? What next, asserting that he acquired the office via a coup through massive voter fraud? Outrageous. Now, let's laugh at some more of Glorious Leader's made-up stuff (but only the appropriate made up stuff. The serious made-up stuff, we have to defend).

Obama is a sexist pig. He doesn’t have Hillary or Sarah to slam anymore so he turns his attention to slamming an elderly former first lady. Big man.

You got it: that was pure cover-his-dopey-butt.

You know someone is immature and a dope when he tries to pull of self-deprecating humor and instead it comes off as hateful sarcasm about someone else.

It’s amateur hour, folks. And that’s the “good” part.

“It is not going to be easy for us to dig ourselves out of the hole that we are in,” Obama said.

Nancy is getting on in years, but she wouldn’t need a seance to know that digging your way out of a hole is STUPID!

I think Obama literally forgets he isn’t just sitting around shooting the bull with his friends. To be honest I have noticed a similarity in the way he covers a verbal mistake with myself. For example, if I had bungled saying something that involved the word “is”, I might make a Clinton reference.

But I’m not at a Press Conference as President either,and things like this matter. It will be something to keep an eye on, because he might have a tendency to reveal his true thoughts sometimes.

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

I wonder how Ronald Reagan Jr. feels about his mother getting dissed...especially since he came out endorsing Obama! What a low life scum bag he is. Gives the finger to Hil and McCain, makes arm gestures to mock Mc, calls Palin a lipstick pig and stinky old fish for McCain. Gee, we haven’t even started the administration yet. I cannot believe he was voted in. Tell me I’m dreaming! Low class idiot......

NEWARK, New Jersey (CNN) — The woman described by Bob Woodward as a spiritual adviser to first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton disputed several of Woodward’s published assertions Sunday night .

Jean Houston, interviewed at the Newark Airport by CNN, said that Mrs. Clinton did indeed have imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt at Houston’s suggestion.

“(But) that was maybe four minutes out of hours and hours of conversation,” she said. (snip)

There's a more accurate quote on Ben Smith's Blog on Politico:
"I have spoken to all of them who are living," he says. "I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Regan thing about doing any seances," he says.
Real classy guy.
