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.

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.
Didn’t Hillary have regular “conversations” with Eleanor Roosevelt?
Regards the flipping of the bird:
Here is my plan — I have been rehearsing it.
If anyone asks me anything about Obama, I am going to scratch my face or wipe my lip with the butter finger while I am replying.
I’ll be polite in my speech, as he was — but give the finger at the same time.
He got by with it. I think I can, it too.
How ‘bout joinin’ me. It could be fun.
How much cowardice does it take to take a verbal shot at an elderly woman?
I definately feel your pain!,,I’ve been sick at my stomach since the election!,,I just can’t believe the government would let his VOTER FRAUD get by!,,and even more appauling is not ALLOWING the backbone of our country VOTE!!,,
If it hasn’t been apparent before it definately is now,,Democrats can’t get any lower!,,when they elected HUSSEIN OBAMA,,they scrapped the bottom of the barrel!!
You can add his throwing the rose on the 9/11 memorial site.
No kidding!!!! This is truly a nightmare.
Why didn't he use Hillary as his example for his 'imaginary seances'???
Clearly, this ‘fast tracker’ is out of his league.
What a loser. He isn’t fit to shine her shoes.
