RUSH: You may not think that it's as bad for Obama out there as I'm making it out to be. Well, Tuesday morning at The Hague, in the Netherlands, Obama held a joint press conference with the Netherlands prime minister Mark Rutte.
At the very end of the presser, Obama ends it by saying this. Now, you'll hear the emcee, but the point is one person... We did not doctor this. This is the point I have to tell you: We did not touch this.
There is no verbal audio equivalent of anything they Photoshopped here. This happened exactly as you will hear it -- and I'm rolling the dice that it is what I think it is, 'cause I haven't heard it yet. So it better be. Here we go.
OBAMA: I'm also confident that the core values that America has always believed in -- in terms of privacy, rule of law, individual rights -- that has guided, uh, the United States for many years and will continue to guide us into the future. Thank you very much, everybody. Thank you again.
Obama: Well That's Embarrassing, No One Clapped 3/25/2014
MAN: Clap. Clap. Clap.
EMCEE: Okay, ladies and gentlemen, that was the last question. Thank you very much for coming.
Renzi: That's it. One person applauded. See, I didn't tell you what to look for. I just told you we didn't doctor it. One person. Remember when Obama went to Berlin in 2008, the god effect and the big sound system? "Citizens of Berlin, I'm here to save the world!" What did they have, 500,000 people show up? It was a beer garden night, and 500,000 people showed up. Now compare.
He's over there trying to bleed off some cool factor from the pope. Play this again, Friday. This is the president. This is Tuesday morning, a couple of days ago, wrapping things up at The Hague, standing next to the Netherlands prime minister, Mark Rutte. (replaying sound bite) That's not even a golf course clap, folks. That's just... Well, that's just different.
Was it Michelle in disguise?
Nah, she’s in China with her brood and her mother
Everybody was clapping!
Just that only one person was actually using both hands.
If it were a Republican:
“Amid plunging popularity in the polls, the president faced another embarassing rejection today during a news conference in which only one person applauded at the end of this speech.
Sources say the rapid decline in ratings has been an unending source of personal stress and frustration, for the unpopular president.
Since it’s a democrat:
Wonder how many were flipping him the bird. No video available.
Laughing not clapping...
It was a presser.
Perhaps the overseas media are not such lapdogs? That would be difficult to believe.
everyone was clapping but there was only one person in attendance
The Hague is full of racists!!!!
Ironically for the narcissist Obama, his deliberate show of weakness is reflecting badly on him more than anything. Hence, the tepid reception to his latest puff of wind. He deserves the disdain.
I’m sure this will be the lead story on ABCBSNBC nightly news.
Not only was it one person who clapped 3 times, but Idi Obama made three gestures seeking applause before he actually said, “applause” and then the three claps were made in derision.
I don’t think much of that. Maybe the press doesn’t clap in Europe.
I think even the guy who clapped thought that he could be turned off that way - like the lights. Clap on, clap off.
Or he was clapping because the speech was over.
