Possibly The Worst Impromptu Presser Ever

I just put out an article yesterday morning mocking President Obama’s latest favorite choice of interviewers and media outlets and who should step in front of the White House press corps yesterday afternoon – after 8 weeks of hiding? Yeah. Him.

Boy. Wow. I mean, whew… did Obama BLOW IT.

I’m sure he doesn’t think he blew it, but yeah, he really did. He dropped more major lie bombs in that one presser than he has in perhaps the last six months. I am sure we won’t be seeing his shadow in the press room again for another 8 weeks.

Here’s the quick recap of the carnage:

“Well, first of all, I’m not sure all those characteristics you laid out there are accurate,” Obama said. “For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon.” – Source: Free Beacon (video at link) More: Weasel Zippers – Obama Lies (video)

“I mean, the assumption should be you do what previous presidential candidates did dating back for decades. And Governor Romney’s own dad says, well, the reason I put out ten or twelve years is because any single year might not tell you the whole story.” – Source: Breitbart

“You can’t just make stuff up.  That’s what you learn as president of the United States.” – Source: CNS via Weasel Zippers

“When you run for President, your life is an open book.” – Source: Breitbart (video)

Jake Tapper had the best moment of the entire event, when he called after the departing President, “Don’t be a stranger!”  – Source: Free Beacon (video)


One true thing came out of this event: Joe Wilson was vindicated.

    Here’s the key quote from the always charming Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for Obama.

    “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was
    misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony.”

    Obama also lied when he claimed the ad only ran once.

    Last week he offered this whopper while somehow maintaining a straight face:

    “And I don’t think you or anybody who’s been watching the campaign would say,
    yes, that in any way we have tried to divide the country. We’ve always tried to
    bring the country together.

    I’m starting to think he got the wrong prize a few years back. Instead of the Noble peace prize, Obama should get an oscar.

    Why shouldn’t he lie? His whole administration has been one big lie.

    “When you run for President, your life is an open book.” Then open your books Mr President. Let’s see your college transcripts, actual birth certificate, the records of your “parents” marriage and divorce, the drafts “you” created for your books. You’ve been on the scene now for nearly 8 years, nearly 4 of them as President, and you still have not been vetted by the MSM. Open up Barry and let’s see what you’ve been hiding for all these years.

    “You can’t just make stuff up. That’s what you learn as PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.”
    Does anybody else find this quote troubling besides me ie, don’t you think you should have learned this BEFORE you became President…and years ago they told us how smart you were.

    Was Obama’s appearance really impromptu?

    Video of him answering the felon question shows what appear to be notes
    on the podium. He does not look at them when he responds.

    When asked about Akins remarks, he seems to study them before answering
    and veering off into one of his campaign themes, the so-called war on women.

  • Many of the MSM press in that room knew he was lying but
    simply sat there and let him get away with them. I suspect they won’t report his lies as lies

    You cant script the unscrimpted!! You can impromptu the prompter.. You cant rehearse an empty suit.. You can find some fodder and feel somewhat better bout it though..
