Barack Obama's Press Conference - Talks Economy, Takes Shot at Nancy Reagan
Associated Comment ^ | November 7, 2008 | Mark Whittingham

Posted on 11/07/2008 1:35:11 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

Barack Obama conducted his first press conference as President Elect, with Vice President Elect Joe Biden and his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel at his side and his economic advisors, looking appropriately dour and serious, standing behind him.

There was not much in the way of news made at the Obama press conference, aside from a shot taken at an old lady named Nancy Reagan. The majority of the questions were about the current economic situation and what Obama intends to do about it. The short answer appears to be the enactment of some kind of economic stimulus package, the shape of which is unclear.

Some components of the economic stimulus package were discussed. There will be some kind of bailout for the automobile companies that will force them to make fuel efficient cars. There will be an extension of unemployment benefits. There will be some kind of "rescue package" for the middle class.

Barack Obama took a cheap shot at former first lady Nancy Reagan, suggesting that she held séances. This was in response to a question of consulting former Presidents. No doubt this will cause Barack Obama's unsavory image among conservative Americans to be soiled even more, at least until and if Obama apologizes.

The Left was awful toward Mrs. Reagan when she was the First Lady. She bought new china for the White House! She wore designer dresses! She loved her husband and family! And they picked her to pieces.

She nursed her husband until he died and today U.S. President Elect Barak Hussein Obama took a swipe at her in his first press conference.

Will Hillary comment? She should be first in line. Will Laura comment? Will Rosalynn comment? Will Caroline Kennedy comment?

Who will tell this tackless, humorless, creep he needs some manners? Or are white women targets?

What will the media say about this!????

B.O. is no Reagan and is jealous that he can’t ever be as loved. He isn’t any Kennedy either.

Obama's unsavory image among conservative Americans

So taking a cheap shot at an aging First Lady who always conducted herself with kindness and class should only hurt him with conservatives?

Someone needs to tell this cheap suit that when Mrs. Reagan’s husband died, a nation mourned with her, and that if you took a poll today, his “baby mama” is not held in high regard by most of the country. Mrs. Reagan is a lady; Mrs. Obamanazi is a loudmouth.

Considering he flipped Senators McCain and Clinton the bird during a speeches, class is not something we can expect from this piece of crap. He’s the Obamanazi, from first to last.

That's classless and very disgusting and Mrs. Reagan did not deserve that cheap shot. Nice way to "bring the country together" there, 0! I'm sure that he will never apologize.

“at least until and if Obama apologizes.”

Rest assured, he’ll not apologize. He wants a rift - he’s instigating it before he even takes the oath.

Something has to happen. This cannot stand. This is unacceptable. I’m sorry. I can’t accept this. I am sick with anger, fear, and shock. Nobody understands. I feel I must simply keep my mouth shut. I want to curl up in a dark corner and hide. I’m nauseated, fatigued.

Nancy should hold a seance with Caroline and the rest of the Kennedy clan and ask Bobby what he thinks of his loved ones rallying behind worshipers of Sirhan Sirhan.

No - the media won’t call him on it - the media will keep on tanking for the future president because he is sooo eloquent! He has them mesmerized (dictionary: spellbind: enthralled, hypnotized)!

My only satisfaction is that the more he displays his lack of upbringing, his tackiness, his trashiness, and his nastiness, the more of the country will see that they’ve been had, and work to correct the situation as soon as possible.

After addressing the press, Barack Obama thought the microphones were turned off and he said “I heard Sarah Palin has returned to Alaska to begin a new career, yes she’s going into the adult entertainment industry starring in films produced by VPILF Enterprises.” and all the journalists roared with laughter.

Secret Service Agents caught an onlooker with a camera and they retreived it and smashed the camera threatening the onlooker with imprisonment if word got out about Barack’s joke.

First of all, Nancy Reagan never held a seance. Unfortunately, she was said to consult the horoscope to set their schedule for propitious days.
What an insensitive idiot the unwashed and university communists have inflicted on our nation!

It hit me today: when I accidentally caught a glimpse of the Messiah on the TV my wife was watching, and the tune from the TV show "The Jeffersons" started running through my head...you know, the one with lyrics like "Movin' on up, to the East Side.....we finally got our piece of the pie!"

That's what struck me; where The Chosen One had used that phrase (piece of the pie) in his speeches which promted the one moron race-follower to shout "I won't have to pay no mortgage, I won't have to pay my gas...", etc.

We now have the second "Jefferson Presidency"; only THIS time it's "George and Ouisee"...

ROFL

nothing, much.
we need to hit him with this, but not as a insult to conservatives because that is what he is trying to do (he is going to poke us with a stick every chance he gets for the next 4 years) !
but attack from his problem with women. he got 70% of the single women vote. well... lets show all these women what obama really thinks of them. we need to go after him, but not in anger,but with a shake of our heads like “there he goes again” and show him to be pitiful and sexist! pity makes him look far worse than anger;)
anger is what he wants, conservative outrage...and he deserves it, but we got to be and work smarter than that (no 2nd term).
that said i loathe this man, evil pos!!

Seances? What seances? Is he aware of something that no one else is aware of?

Why is this news anyway?

It's not like everyone didn't realize what a 'low class' thug he is anyway--with his friendship with Wright, Ayres, his 'lipstick on a pig' comment, his 'rotten, stinking fish' comment, his unbelievable silence on the Sarah Palin halloween hanging effigy.
