‘Uhhh,’ the president’s ‘uhhh’ press conference was ‘uhhh’ terrible
Washington Post ^ | 6-8-12 | Ed Rogers

Posted on 06/08/2012 1:14:42 PM PDT by kingattax

If you are president of the United States and you don’t have anything to say, don’t have a press conference to say it. If you’re the president of the United States and by Thursday it’s widely believed you’ve had one of the worst weeks of your presidency, take Friday off, and specifically avoid having a press conference.

Anytime you are president and you’re speaking in public at an ill-timed press conference after a bad week, try to have something to say, and do a good job in saying it. I watched the whole thing, but it’s not easy to think of one useful thing that he had to say. And what he said, he said very poorly. Was it just me, or did the president seem a little dazed and confused? He should have had a cup of coffee before the press conference.

"Clean", I'll give you.

But I thought Clueless Joe said he was "articulate", too.

Bambi probably mixed himself a little DXM cocktail before the presser...just like his son Trayvon would have done.

He can’t speak unless he has a script and a teleprompter.

Which qualifies him to read the nightly news, not be the President!

Boys be careful. I do believe that Obama is toast and the Dems are turning and Wisconsin was the final straw. Too many Clinton, Booker, Rendel, comments/statements, etc.

The Dems know they now have a loser in the WH so there is nothing to lose by replacing him by the convention. They need the MSM to turn up the heat now....

Hillary in the Wings. Again, nothing to lose now.

Rush used to say that the Establishment Republicans didn't think they could win the presidency and just wanted to try to win the Senate.

It seems the coin has flipped and now the Establishment Democrats might get rid of Obama in an effort not to lose too many Senate, House and local seats.

They now see the people are POed with Barry and it is hurting them up and down the ticket... with the exception of the guaranteed BCC districts.

Dazed and confused, huh? One might be tempted to think that a graceful way out of the Oval Office is setting up via an unspecified health problem. Hillary to the rescue and Obama garnering perpetual sympathy and tingling tears from Chris Matthews. Or would that be tearful tingles? Probably both.

Any bet on Obama’s big whopper “Private sector is doing just fine” going to show up on the alphabet networks and old print media?

It’ll be a real fun weekend to watch CNN/MSNBC. I predict those talking heads will double down and say Republicans ENJOY the economy downturn and President Obama’s misfortune.

Oh, he's had many 'news conferences' that were like that.

As for his uuuhhhhs and oooohhhh....check out this from his early years:

And there are numerous other Obama-uh videos at different events.

0bama is a stoner. has been since he was a kid. no news there"

Barry announced to the world that he inhaled, "uhhh, that was the point" (was that a backhand at Billy C, btw?). Have any of the "reporters" asked him when and why he stopped inhaling? Now that he can afford it, does he still do a little "blow" from time to time?

Isn't it strange that after the Bilderberg conference that EVERYTHING seems to be going south for the idiot - AND even the press is starting to bail?

I am convinced that the press is piling on now so that they can go back to being Obama's full time cheering section after the conventions. That way when anyone points out how biased they are for Obama they can deny it and point to how hard they were on him over the summer.

Anybody got video of this particular session of the _resident Choom Brother giving this speech / these answers?

It might actually be a rare moment where I would watch him speak.

Three years ago, these same people thought (or fantasized, or pretended) that all his "uuhhhhs" were the sign of an astute, thoughtful man.

What happened?

He overcame his lack of focus and uhhhs by reading off a teleprompter for every occassion. He once set it up in a elementary school classroom. He became a laughing stock and is trying to speak without it uhhh uhhh uhhh sometimes.

When he talks alot in public, the media can’t make a fake image for him and him into a brilliant scholar. People don’t like him when he is overexposed.

Astute observation. One thing is for sure, as we approach the critical phase of the election, it really does seem like Obama is starting to get exposed by the mainstream media. I get the impression that some major power shift is occurring behind the scenes.

Is it too late for the Democrats to change their nominee?
