Live Thread: President Obama State of the Sham Wow Press Conference at G-20 (7:30 p.m. EDT)
Live coverage at C-SPAN.org ^ | Tuesday, June 19, 2012 | Kristinn

Posted on 06/19/2012 4:22:34 PM PDT by kristinn

President Barack Hussein Obama II is scheduled to hold a press conference somewhere around 7:30 p.m. EDT this evening.

He is wrapping up the G-20 summit in Mexico.

Reporters on Twitter are suggesting their colleagues will be asking about Egypt and Attorney General Eric Holder's looming contempt of Congress vote.

They'll probably ask about Europe, Russia, Syria and Obama's amnesty. We'll see soon.

I’ll use Bambi’s excuse for not watching him: “I’m busy with stuff.” I’ve got a Cake Boss and two Pawn Stars episodes on my DVR I’m gonna’ watch instead.

The cable networks should pick it up whenever Obama deigns to begin. He is obviously late again.

Funny he doesn’t take any questions after making a massive power grab at the WH (or have a regular WH press conference) but is going to take a few questions from a world press in another country.

Got it.

My question: “mr president, your attorney general is refusing to release documents to congress. Will you be asking for his resignation”?

Thank you so much, kristinn! It'll be a relief to follow here rather than hearing his grating, nauseating voice and preening arrogance. Putin and he are two peas, perhaps BHO being the more innately insecure, with thinner skin and greater delusions of grandeur ...

Obama’s Photo-Op at the G20 Summit, Los Cabos, Mexico

Obama’s Photo-Op with world leaders at the G20 Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico. Is he really chewing gum in the video below, look at the 20 second mark?

Can’t he show any class and restrain himself from grinding his mouth?

No, he’s pretty much just dancing around the question, just making some noise by using the words “infrastructure, economics, and jobs” now.

He takes five to ten minutes to answer each question, thereby reducing the number of questions he has to take.

Up next, Jeff Mason, Reuters, asking about Syria. Did Putin indicate he'll call on Assad to step down?

"...blah blah..grow green industry to combat climate change and increase regulation [there's a winning platform sure to boost business confidence and spur job growth at home!] to ensure a level playing field....combat corruption...more teachers...infrastructure."

Wow and LOL

Combating corruption starts at home, Obama. He's such a fool.

Obama taking follow-ups from the reporters, exact question hard to hear.

Next question goes to Julianna Goldman(?).

Asks Obama about Romney advisors saying something or other about Europe. Obama says 'we have one president at a time' and that we have a tradition of politics stopping at the water's edge. (Yes, the Usurper actually said that.)

Goldman also asked if Europe just kicking the can down the road to survive another three months.
