"Just slammed Nancy Reagan."

And he couldn't even get that right. She didn't hold seances. She consulted an Astrologer. Big difference. It was Mary Todd Lincoln who held seances in the White House. This guy is a buffoon.

Obama doesn’t understand how the capital gains tax works.

No, he doesn't. He blew a discussion of this before, must have been briefed on it since to get it straightened out, and still has no clue. And he claims he once worked as a financial writer!

Mocking Nancy Reagan saying he did not want to go the way of Nancy Reagan seyonces.

That was in lieu of simply flipping her a bird. That's his SOP for people who might not give him the proper deference.

He made a comment about not being like Nancy Reagan and holding a seance.

If I said what I really thought about him right now I'd be banned. What a low-rent, low-class lowlife. And this a$$hat is the President-Elect.
And the bastards in the press call President Bush MR Bush and call this butthead President-Elect Obama.
Makes me want to frakking puke.

I think you were more right than you realize. He doesn’t want Rush doing his live commentary. Also, it’s Friday, and Rush can’t comment on it until next week.

“He’s reading his notes, and quite frequently his eyes are averted downward to read them. He is uttering alot of “uh’s” as well.”

During questioning, he had to look down first to get the name of the reporter he was to call on for each question. No just pointing to various reporters in the room, as he must have had a list of certain friends to call on.

It wasn't a slam against Nancy Reagan.

It was a slam against Hillary. Hillary did seances as First Lady.
