40% Say Obama Has Too Many Press Conferences (Obama now HIDING from press since 7/22/09)

The president on Wednesday night held his fifth press conference since taking office in January, the fourth in prime time, but he didn’t get a bounce from it as is generally the case. The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll today finds his overall approval rating falling below 50% for the first time.

I find it very revealing that POTUS had 5 press conferences in first six months in office, and none in the last 4. When he was popular and the MSM was in love with him, he would do a presser every month. He knew he would get softball questions, he had not made any decisions, and could blame everything on Bush.

Now, 10 months into his term, his policies look like a train wreck, and even some of his adoring fans in the MSM are questioning him.

How does he respond? He hides from the press. No press conferences and few media interviews at all. A couple weeks ago he had Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann over to the White House for lunch. This week he had the sycophants from the NY Times, NPR, and other arms of his propaganda machine over for lunch.

He also has his minions calling and threatening Democrats who dare appear on Fox News. He gave a bizarre speech at the Interior Dept where he seemed totally emotionless and took a full two minutes of extolling the greatness of his relationship with native americans before he got around to discussing the massacre at Ft. Hood.

I think Obama the man is becoming more detached from reality by the day. each week he holds lavish parties at the White House involinvg his political constituencies. Whether it is rap stars, classical music (this week), or hispanice celebrations, it seems Obama has lost touch with America.

I often say it seems sometimes I feel like I am watching an MTV eality show when I see Obama. For him it is all about posing and not about doing. It is all flash and no substance. FReepers recognized that before he was elected, but you would have to have blinders on to not see he is an empty suit now.

He’s still on TV nearly everyday. Usually sometime between 11:00 am and noon.

Yes, but he does not answer questions. his appearances on TV are more like infomercials put out by the White House to keep the ‘Obama brand’ in people’s minds. He is being kept from any situation that he and his people can’t control 100%. I am betting he does not have a press conference before the end of the year at the earliest.

My thoughts exactly...I have expressed this elsewhere on FR.

I don't know what you are talking about.
It is Barry TV.  24 hour fricking hours a day.  Hell, I can't go to the gym and work out without seein' him on TV. 
 
He is everywhere boredcast in Barack-O-Vision
 
This guy has had more than 240 speeches in what?   About 296 days!!  Amazing!
 
Major speeches in the last month? This a-hole needs his own channel.
 
He is on TV damn near every day and sometimes twice as day.
 
He started his own sitcom back when he invented the “Office of the President Elect”.
 
Oh! And great news. He having another Telethon Tomorrow!
 
Yeahhhh!
 
Yeah, because now all broadcast are now improved and enhanced “Barack-O-Color
