1. Americans should leave.
2. Radiation will not reach the U.S.
3. The CDC do not recommend that people take precautionary measures except for staying inside (cowering is optional).
4. US nuclear plants are safe. However, what we can learn now in Japan may make them even safer.
5. SAR teams from US will help in Japan. The US military is pitching-in.
6. Responders are being given the best equipment.
7. American citizens are mobilizing to help. You can do so on (website suchandsuch).
8. Japan and the US share many cultural bonds. This friendship is certain to bring everyone through this disaster. We have to help each other.
9. (Anecdote about a baby saved).
10. We will stand with the people of Japan.
No questions allowed. Obama walks off stage.
Complete dispassionate boilerplate.
I feel safer already!
Great! Now we’re screwed... he said it wouldn’t hit the U.S. He just sealed our fate... everything he predicts goes the other way.
“Let me be clear.........”
Obama DONE speaking on Japan.
He forgot to mention all those supply ships heading to Japan to help. Oh, sorry.
Turned him off immediately
Most importantly, number 11;
What do you think about my bracket picks ?
Was he wearing a FRUIT HAT and scuba flippers?
Or was he instead carrying a putter and ice-cream cone?
This is the kind of basic daily update that the Press Secretary should be giving. There was no reason for the POTUS to go out there and say this stuff.
Barry is in over his stupid marxist head.
Pray for our Republic.
Does he even know about them? maybe he simply forgot because he’s soo busy /s
I think if I were the leader of one of our allies, I might consider sending a note to the White House, informing them that all ties are broken and that we were no longer allies. That would lead to better treatment from this Administration.
Shep Smith and Mike Kelly on Fox News:
“Oh, Barrack, we want to have your baby!”
That guy sure knows how to make us proud . . .
short ,, sweet, no questions.. out of there..
he can still squeeze 9 in if he hurries
As an aside, a GM assembly plant had to shut down because there were no parts coming from Japan. I repeat, a GM assembly plant - Oh, buy America? Fewer than half of the parts on some Big Three vehicles are made in the U.S.
They should just scroll the teleprompter in front of the camera.
How nice of Obama to take time off from picking who will win the NCAA to answer questions about something as trivial as the disaster in Japan, oh thank you Obama, I feel SO much better now..now he can go back to playing golf..all is well now, oh wise one as spoken
Did ya ever pray the teleprompter writer guy gets intractable arthritis?
You mean the part where he’s leaving the Country, right?
Obama looked like he was watching a ping-pong game, the way his gaze bounced from one teleprompter to the other the whole time. And the way he bolted at the end to avoid questions was pathetic. This guy is the worst president ever.
US President Barack Obama signs a condolence book for victims of the massive earthquake and tsunami disaster at the Japanese Embassy in Washington, DC, during an unannounced visit. (AFP/Jim Watson)
Six days later, he finally has something to say. Took his speech writers six days to come up with something. That’s pathetic.
Obama hasn’t a clue. Absolutely no executive experience of any kind. I doubt if he even had a paper route.
I would love to see that from the U.K. or Israel, though seeing the Obamas snubbed from William's royal wedding is nice.
Yeah, planning his trip to Rio and Ireland and after that a nice vacation from all that traveling.
Boy he had anger in his voice! Did you also hear it?
Of course, Obama wants this to be as bad as possible so he can shut down the industry. So, if Rumsfield were around, he would say, "Go with them!"
Did he forget to mention that global wind trajectories do not cross the equator, hence his trip to South America.
Feh. A lot late, but at least dude finally pried himself off the crackpipe and the d*** long enough to say something. He gets credit for that.
There’s some radiation detected at DFW. Just saying.
Jeff Immelt told him so.
That is the only thing I'd tune in for at this point.
I was done with Fox in December.
Can you imagine George Washington or Abraham Lincoln making such an undignified display of themselves?
Obama: Harmful levels of radiation not expected to reach U.S.
Good grief...we’ve heard every bit of that by now! Just go away, BO!
- (edited for clarity)
And oh so perfect, a photo op chance at doing what any experienced community organizer does best, appear compassionate.
“Turned him off immediately”
I always give the “salute” first.
This stupid Mother Effer just outlined what has been already done. In short..no haste-no waste.
The C Sucker hasnt a friggan clue. If ANY of our enemies would want to attack us or our close friends-NOW IS THE TIME.
By the time the war would be over, he’d just be starting to wake up and realize something happened.
Moochelle was waiting for him to get ready for tonight’s green beer Par-Tay
(and you better not be late, you jive turkey, you hearin’ what I SAY?)
“Obama: Harmful levels of radiation not expected to reach U.S.”
AP: Harmful levels of Obama have reached the U.S.
Did the teleprompter work correctly?
Who the hell gives a sh*t? bam to us, “Don’t worry. Be happy.”
All I want to hear from “him” is “As of this minute, I am resigning this office.” Followed by US Marshalls with a warrant and handcuffs.
Here is my version of the presser.
(big sigh, why do I have to do this? why does Bill keep saying No?)
Ok, Here is the stuff I have to say before my St. Patty’s party tonight and my trip to RIO tomorrow. So, let’s just get it over with...
Ok, Japan some kind of nuclear problem...uh...don’t worry they will take care of it or something...and uh we will help and ...uh...we are friends and (are we done yet?)
And we stand with the people of Japan. Ok. Bye now. Gotta go get ready for the party. RIO Baby!!
If the pilots of AF1 chose to do so, they should drop Obama and his rubber ducky off and then launch out of there. Let Obama float back.
