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.

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...
