President Obama is often tardy for his scheduled speeches and press conferences, leaving network anchors scrambling to fill in the air time.

I took a three part business seminar, each part lasting four long days...and the number one thing they pounded into our brains was to ALWAYS BE ON TIME FOR BUSINESS, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS. To do otherwise displays a LACK OF INTEGRITY AND DISRESPECT. (I haven’t been late for anything since 2007, except for twice, where I called after 5 minutes.)

I have no respect for someone who has no respect for others.

It’s tough because he always has to get last minute talking points from Valerie.

Disrespect—his time is more important than anyone elses. This will not end well, I fear.

Being habitually late is also a way to exert authority over others, one often used by narcissists. Gee, there is a shock w/r/t obastard, eh?

Maybe if he was doing a good job we could excuse tardiness.

When you are flailing at EVERYTHING — domestic, foreign policy, scandals, lying about health care, STILL using the IRS to target conservative groups, coming late all of the time only rubs it in. What an idiot.

If the reporters want to stop this, they should either show up 45 minutes late for all obama speeches or walk out one minute after the scheduled start if he doesn’t show.

Never happen, though. They love to have their faces shoved into the manure. Narcissist meets masochist.

The ‘press’ should just walk and the TV channels should just return to scheduled programs, when this ass purposely makes them wait. They can always later show clips of his phony speeches that are filled with lies and that droning voice.

Perhaps a couple of walk-outs by the press would send the message that folks are not enamored with him.

Is it racist to mention BST?

He does it on purpose. He’s reinforcing the notion that he’s the great almighty and underlings must await his presence. It’s all about control and power. Then there’s the grand appearance with all eyes on him. If the msm weren’t his lap dogs, they’d all show up late and put him in his place. They’ve forgotten that he works for them, not the other way around.

I too have had to wait, watching the air time fill...not waiting for the President (whom I would either immediately mute or change channels on) but waiting for the next news item. Instead, blank podiums while talking heads “fill audio” with musings about what “might” be said (if only the President would show up). Good time for a Hawaii5O rerun.
