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.
