ignore him and he will go away

Barack Obama Is A Media Whore

Media whore of Babylon.This guy! Presumption Watch etc! Barack Obama has been holding press conferences pretty much nonstop since he was elected, what, 40 million years ago, and since then he has just blah blah blahed all over the press because he didn’t get enough love in his childhood. That is the only reasonable conclusion you can make about his infinite interminable press conferences, not to mention the YouTubes and the line of specially branded sex dolls: they are pathetic cries for attention.

Obama will hold the fifth press conference of his post-election pre-presidency tomorrow, and maybe the financial markets will bobble around, as they do, regardless of whether he talks or what he talks about. Tomorrow’s address will be on toe jam, for and against.

    Maybe he’s just pretending to be President. Like the current President has been doing for the last eight years.

  2. AngryBlakGuy

    …maybe he will talk about the hand jobs he is suppose to be handing out? I definitely have a couple questions about that!

  3. Serolf Divad

    “Obama press conference” is just another way of saying “massage for the nation’s soul.”

    Keep ‘em coming Barry. Oh, and uno mas Coraona por favor.

  4. Electric Zen

    Oh, cool. Maybe this will be an excuse for Politico to run three more stories about what order he will call on journalists to ask questions.

  5. Doglessliberal

    These are getting so commonplace that he is going to have to announce that he will be doing the next one as Press Strip Poker: he will remove a piece of clothing for every question he fails to fully answer.

  6. actor212

    As often as he gives pressers, I think he should have some kind of exit theme, like maybe “Talk To Ya Later” by The Tubes.

  7. Darehead

    I traveled to Tibet recently and the villagers kept saying “Yes, We Can” to me instead of “hello.”

    [re=189110]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: im with you , my first would be do i get to specify attractive female p, plain female , mediocre female, plain female and also is there a first available option like at chilis?

    It’s all about balance, see. Every time Sarah Palin or George W. Bush speak in public, Obama has to have a press conference to remind a scarred nation that some politicians are actually able to construct a viable sentence using words that are actually in the dictionary. Really he’s performing a public service.

  10. NoWireHangers

    I whole-heartedly support this whole transparent-government-constant-press-conferences-about-every-little-thing-like-what-bagel-Barry-ate-for-breakfast-stuff if it results in more HuffPo Obama Family slideshows.

  11. Lascauxcaveman

    [re=189112]Serolf Divad[/re]: Oooh. I think you just blew your “yo soy Messican” cred, buddy.

  12. shanemcgowan

    [re=189117]actor212[/re]: He needs to find another band. The last administration used “White Punks on Dope.”

  13. SayItWithWookies

    Hey, what happened to that brush-clearing imbecile who only gave press conferences every blue moon and always announced them two hours before they were scheduled, usually on a long weekend? Does anyone remember him?

  14. Thegreatbacon

    Wonkette, please write an article about David Brooks’ latest op-ed, wherein he talks about how the the captain and generals in our army realized that you can’t just sweep out the terrorists, you have to build stronger communities. Meanwhile, at home, conservatives still think gang violence and drugs have NOTHING TO DO with rampant poverty, poor social services, and a government that believes own’s environment does not matter, and everybody has equal access to “the bootstraps.” Are Aghanistan’s poor so much more inportant to our national security than our poor people?

    Sorry, I had to rant a little. Brooks is such an ignorant ass clown.

  15. sarcasticusername

    he’s getting them all in now because everyone knows that REAL presidents don’t give press conferences, they speak directly through chosen pundits on fox news, kind of like how god had prophets and stuff. a little more than a month from now, we won’t hearing from hopey ever again.

  16. Lascauxcaveman

    [re=189117]actor212[/re]: George W Bush would have been more successful as pres if he’d exited every presser to the strains of “White Punks on Dope.”

    Or more likeable, anyway.

  17. hockeymom

    [re=189113]Electric Zen[/re]: Is there an over/under on when he’s going to call on FOX?

    I’ve got my money on the 12th of Never.

  18. stormkite

    Here we go again. Once you start giving press conferences and twittering and talking to people and stuff, before you know it the serfs… er, citizens, start thinking they’re entitled to know what’s going on and ask questions and whatnot, instead of just keeping their dadgum mouths shut, doing what they’re told and bending over at appropriate times.

    That idiot Obama’s just another Prince John, wimping out when the pressure’s on. Divine Right was the best thing we ever had, and John gave it away. President Bush finally reclaims it, 800+ years ago and here Obama goes giving it back AGAIN…. What’s a tyrant to do?

    [re=189136]Thegreatbacon[/re]: Hey, until the bangers in Compton fly a commuter jet into Cinderella’s castle in Disneyland, America’s poor will not be relevant. So stay quiet, out of sight and don’t forget to dust above the doors.

  20. problemwithcaring

    It’s so freaky to watch him stand up there and explain things in complete sentences, straightforwardly answering the reporter’s questions. He is clear on what he is purposely NOT saying, sometimes going further than the reporter’s own lame probes. You would think he was actually trying to accomplishing something up there…at a press conference.

    Ugh. An exorbitantly adequate Black Male.

  21. TGY

    [re=189132]Darehead[/re]: That’s right!

    Also, when I come to think about it, why no cabinet post for Paris Hilton? Secretary of Energy? Energy Tsar? Chief Slutonomist?

  22. IslandGirlFL

    Lookit, SOMEBODY has to be the President. Bush is in full navel gazing regret mode. SO give Barry a break.

  23. ladymacbeth

    i hate that montauk monster thing. the last time you guys posted it, i had a dream wherein it became my pet.

    plus it was dead.

  24. LuckyJim

    [re=189185]stormkite[/re]: Allah H. Christ, that’s a meandering post. If he’s Prince John 2, I guess Hillz must be the Sheriff of Nott or somesuch…

    What? Oh, uh, never mind.

    love, Rocket Robin Hood

  25. slinkimalinki

    monty! face it, the monster’s a frick of a lot more adorable than the previous administration’s monsters.

    [re=189391]LuckyJim[/re]: Homosexuals?

    OK

    Based on my religions beliefs, homosexual BEHAVIOR is a sin just like
    drinking booze or having sex outside of a marriage.

    I can not do anything to help sins against the teaching of the Bible
    thus I can not, based on my religous beliefs, allow any of these
    activities on my property, INCLUDING rental property I might own. The
    civil rights laws that say I would have to rent to drinkers, unmarried
    couples, or gays violate my right to live up to my religion thus such
    laws are UNCONSTITUTIONAL
