How dare you question the Great and Powerful OZ?
The buzziest moment came about 35 minutes into the press conference when Ed Henry of CNN asked the President why he didn’t spew outrage as soon as he learned about the AIG bonuses. Why, Mr. Henry asked, did the president wait several days before speaking out? The president, with an icy stare, responded that he “likes to know what he’s talking about” before he speaks. It was a pretty testy exchange that brought about nervous laughter from the other reporters…..
“….know what he’s talking about’…? The Bamster doesn’t even know what the hell he’s doing
Another moment that seemed to strike a chord came when Chuck Todd of NBC asked the president what sort of sacrifices he would like to see from the American people during this economic crisis. The president responded that he expects Americans to do what they’ve always done “which is working hard, looking after their families, making sure that, despite the economic hard times, that they’re still contributing to their community…”
Like sacrificing trillions of dollars to your fucking bailout?
The Bamster spent the entire “press conference” avoiding tough questions, sidestepping issues, and getting ticked because the media on hand didn’t get a Chris Matthews type ‘tingle up their leg’ with HIS presence.
It was good to see that there are at least a few reporters (Jake Tapper, in particular) who won’t kiss his ass the way most of the MSM does.
