  • Obama: Republicans teaching candidates how to speak with 'sweeties' [women] - Correspondents Dinner

    05/07/2014 1:55:29 PM PDT · by Frankusa · 1 replies
    During the 2008 Presidential campaign, President Obama took some heavy flak for addressing a female factory worker and a woman reporter as "sweeties". Cognizant that female voters might find the crass moniker disrespectful, the Politician-in-Chief quickly called the female reporter and issued an apology on her voice mail saying he was sorry for using the word "sweetie". The President added: "That's a bad habit of mine, I do it sometimes with all kinds of people" - including - as the satirical video below indicates - Michelle Obama. However, despite the President's tactless style of speaking with women, and the need...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is mixing mixed comedy with some early campaigning at the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner, focusing mainly on Donald Trump. With Trump in attendance, Obama said the billionaire businessman has shown the acumen of a future president, from firing Gary Busey on a recent episode of "Celebrity Apprentice" to focusing so much time on conspiracy theories about Obama's birthplace.

Obama was to attend the White House Correspondents' Association annual dinner Saturday night, one day after traveling to Alabama to meet with residents affected by the deadliest tornado outbreak in 40 years and view what the president said was the worst devastation he's ever seen.

    Look for Washington types such as Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Richard Holbrooke, the U.S. special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Party crashers were not welcome. After Tareq and Michaele Salahi got through White House gates without invitations to a state dinner, guests had to bring a dinner ticket or printed invitation to attend dinner pre-parties at the Washington Hilton Hotel. Organizers said they were trying to cut down on crowds.

    You may remember the evening of Sept. 29, 2001. On that evening, Rudy Giuliani appeared on Saturday Night Live. It was 18 days after the September 11 attacks. This appearance of the mayor of New York — who had spent almost three weeks comforting a shaken nation, mourning with families of the murdered, and leading — was widely considered a signal: We could laugh again. We needed to laugh. Heaven knows, Giuliani must have needed it as much as anyone. Laughter can be a beautiful thing, a great gift in difficult times. A way to reach those who might not...

He thanked the attendees for the kind welcome, saying, "You're not the kind to look down on a bitter man who clings to his guns."

    PRESIDENTIAL NEWS OF THE DAY: President and Mrs. Bush attended St. John's Church this morning, as is their custom when spending the weekend at the White House. Last night they attended the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner, where the President and his "alter ego," comedian Steve Bridges, stole the show. The best review I found is on USA Today's website. Since I'm not sure how much of their material we can excerpt, I'll just provide a link. The article includes a nearly complete transcript of the President's and Mrs. Bridges routine. LINK TO USA TODAY CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER REVIEW

"Ladies and gentlemen, I feel chipper tonight. I survived the White House shake-up," the president said.But impersonator Steve Bridges stole many of the best lines. Vice President Dick Cheney and his hunting accident were targets of his humor on a couple of occasions."Speaking of suspects, where is...

    WASHINGTON - The political and celebrity worlds were joining forces to honor journalists for their coverage of the White House and the downfall of a corrupt congressman. Continuing a tradition begun by Calvin Coolidge, President Bush planned to attend the annual dinner Saturday that is hosted by the White House Correspondents' Association. "I will see you all tomorrow night, I guess," Bush told reporters at the White House on Friday. "Looking forward to it. I hope you are, as well." Booked as the featured entertainer was Stephen Colbert, whose Comedy Central show "The Colbert Report" often lampoons the Washington establishment....

    Those Democrats sure know how to get lippy, don't they? President Bush's humorous references to the hunt for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq have drawn criticism from Democrats as inappropriate for wartime. The White House and Republicans contend the president was just poking fun at himself. How ironic. Let's talk about what is "inappropriate for wartime," shall we? How about Sen. John Kerry's assertation that, "What we need now is not just a regime change in Saddam Hussein and Iraq, but we need a regime change in the United States"? You can feel however you want to about the...

    Washington -- Last Saturday, after awakening at 5:00 a.m. in Virginia's Shenandoah Mountains to hunt wild turkey, I showered and dressed in black tie for one of my favorite Washington evenings, the White House Correspondents' Association dinner. If I did not see any turkeys during the matutinal hunt, I was guaranteed to see them in abundance during the vespertine melee that this distinguished gathering has become. In all of New York there is nothing quite like it, though you can find an approximation of it on the Virginia countryside. I have in mind the county fair, at least the county...
