totally classy guy to mock an ailing former First Lady

I'm trying to imagine the tangle-tongued, foot-in-mouth GWB saying something like that. Nope. He wouldn't say that under torture.

OMG--that cracked me up big time. Hey, maybe now they will get birthday and Christmas presents.

Our lives will suffer but at least those little girls will have a nicer childhood....for four years.

On a positive note I do not think were going to have to worry about any Monica Lewinsky’s.

Larry Sinclair's are another matter.

Obama gets his questions before a live press conference from the Liberal Media? How pathetic. Bush never received the questions ahead of time. Does Obama demand a 24 hour notice on what questions he will receive before each press conference? Talk about a deceiver and cheater.

There was a professor at NYU (actually held a doctorate in speech something or other) who substituted one day during one of my courses. I counted the “ums” and a buddy counted the “uhs”. We stopped after each of us hit 100 (which occurred during the first 20 minutes of her lecture).

It’s pretty pathetic when your kids have to hope that you become president before they can get a dog....

IIRC he said that they would get a dog at the end of the campaign, win or lose.

Hypoallergenic; not “a mutt like me” he explained even though he preferred a “shelter dog.”

I'm with you! The letters, OPE...

I used to have a sign near our swimming pool that said,
Welcome to our OOL.
Notice there's no P in it.
Let's keep it that way.

I'm wondering if the H (Hussein's?) was dropped off, and that the real made-up office is: Hussein's Office of President Elect, or simply H-O-P-E.

“It is not going to be easy for us to dig ourselves out of the hole that we are in,” Obama said.”

Maybe that is why most people don’t try to DIG their way out of a hole!

Better to climb 5 feet than dig 7900 miles...

I don’t want to think about what the Press would say if Palin suggested “digging our way our of a hole”!

I’ve got a bichon. The bichon has hair, not fur, so it does not shed and you can’t be allergic to it. Get a bichon Obama. The bichon dates back to 300-600 bc and was used by sailors to greet people at ports in France. Later loved by both french and italian nobility.

I expect that he might get a little better, but he did not come across well at this press conference. He looked very uncomfortable.

His attempts at glibness were awkward; his feighned interest in a reporter wearing a sling was just as bad.

I'm thinking this guy thinks he's a Jack Kennedy in front of the press, but it turns out, at least this time, he fell very flat. They'll cover for him as much as possible, but I don't think he's going to do much live stuff.

With his cult of personality, I figure he's more likely to release videos instead speaking to the press live. He may even require the press to submit their questions ahead of time.

“Here’s the contrast:
CBS does an interview with Palin and has to edit it to make her look bad. An unedited showing and she would have looked good.

Obama does a presser and it will have to be edited to make him look good and the unedited version makes him look like the idoit he is.”

That’s it! We should all become editors!!!! Apparently there is great job security in being an editor, esp. for the next 4 years.
