Wasn't that an "enchanting" press conference

What an embarresment our press corps is. 13 questions in sixty minutes. All it is is a rehearsed speech with pre set questions. Jake Tapper's the only real reporter in the room, although that guy from CBS radio wasn't too bad. I mean come one - who in their right mind tosses the president of the United States a softball so big that it contains the words "enchanted". I wanted to puke. I mean, he doesn't even need TOTUS for that one.

Anyways, you got to give credit to Obama for finding a way to get all the these hour long speeches out on boadcast news for free. He does know how to run quite a political campaign.

    I am not really an Obama fan but ...

    it's only 100 days and the honey moon period is not over yet. Give Obama and the reporters a chance. There is going to be a lot more 100 days to come. :)

    It was a pleasure to hear a president so well-versed and so articulate.

    You want a bucket for your tears?

    Embarrassing..the most enchanting? New York Times is a joke.

    This was not a press conference..oboma free air time with pre set questions..exactly 13, same as last time...Lots of BS...English didn't torture during WH 2...lie..they indeed use "enhanced techniques".

    obama admits info was obtained, but states it could have been obtained not using enhanced techniques?..AH...I don't think so

    "You want a bucket for your tears"

    what.. you can post your love fest for the messiah, but others can't express their view and opinion?

    Of course not. He's too perfect for that. Meanwhile they will also continue to bash all the Repubs they can.

    I liked when he took out a pen to write down the words surprised, enchanted, humbled and troubled. I have to write everything down and it was nice to see him do that so he remembered the entire task.

    He gets admired for writing things down! The love affair has no bounds!

    If Bush wrote things down in a press conference, he gets bashed for being so stupid he can't remember a question!

    Without the teleprompter? WOW, I'm impressed.
  • cartera45cartera45 Registered User Posts: 12,451 Senior Member
    crescent - that is not true. If I had seen Bush pick up his crayon to write something, I would have rejoiced in the knowledge that he could.

    I've never posted any "love fests". Stop acting like an immature little baby.
