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.

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!????
He’s a pig.
He does have class don’t he.
Only 1,460 days til election day 2012.
Not a damn thing. He's the Teflon Messiah.
B.O. is no Reagan and is jealous that he can’t ever be as loved. He isn’t any Kennedy either.
Wonder what Non Reagan who voted for that POS will say.
What a classy mutt ‘dis guy is.
He’s not big on elderly, typical white ‘folk’.
So taking a cheap shot at an aging First Lady who always conducted herself with kindness and class should only hurt him with conservatives?
Obama apologize? Surely you jest, Mark.
MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY!
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.
Wow, looks like America has elected President Douchebag. How nice.
how about ron jr? what was that about the mean gop?
and another thing... he looked like he had on eye shadow, and purple lipstick. I don’t know about you guys but this is going to be a long long election.....
Sums it up very well right there.
“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.
lets see seances ridiculous—channeling Eleanor Rooseveldt spritually upliftin?
Where can we find another Reagan?
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.
Once a dickhead always a dickhead.
What a surprise! Don’t hold your breath on it!
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)!
Arrogant snob! May the fleas of 1000 camels nestle in his arm pit. (got the from an episode of “Get Smart”)
he is probably pro euthanasia for useless old people not just disabled and sick
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.
He is one happy fella.
“Wow, looks like America has elected President Douchebag. How nice”.
...LOL. My name for him is President Dipshitowitz.
By the way, did WonderPrez have any explanation why the stock markets are tanking since his election?
I didn’t think it would be possible to hate anyone worse than x42.
I stand corrected.
Gawd, he hasn’t even been inaugurated yet!
It is going to be a LONG 4 years.
Michael Regan said: Sarah Palin!
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.
My president? Ah...
I’m sure the “Media’ won’t say a ,,,,,thing!,,after all they were the ones that got the jerk elected!,,’well,that and his VOTER FRAUD’!!,,
Interesting how his first pick for the 1st job opening is non other than one of if not the MAIN player in Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac!!,,who’s the next position go to Ayers?????????????,,
I hope the ones that voted for this RACIST PIG ,enjoys what their getting !,,because they have no one to blame but themselves!,,Media included!,,
Nancy Reagan has more class in her little toe than HUSSEIN OBAMA has in his whole body!
Dig the hole, you big eared, mental midget.
He probably had to come up with something at the last second that wasn’t on his cue cards. “Uhhh. Bread. Milk. Cheese. Wrong notes. I better answer that question somehow.”
Where’d you hear this?
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!
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"...
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.
There was only one worth a sh!t.
