« Obama And The Banks | Main | Newsflash: Print Media Is Dead »

Public Service Announcement

For all those interested or for those who have acute insomnia:

President Obama will be holding a snooze conference at 8:00 tonight. Out of approximately 40 reporters, he will take about 5 questions, each answered with a 30 minute response, in a long, drawn out, monotone voice.

His last snooze conference had the same effect as taking an Ambien CR.

Possible side effects include drowsiness, depressive episodes, and the feeling that electing this man was a terrible, terrible mistake.

If you have trouble sleeping, PLEASE feel free to utilize this public service.

Thank you, and God Bless America.

How will His teleprompter stay awake for this?

Out of approximately 40 reporters, He will take about 5 questions, consult with His teleprompter after each question, answer with a 30 minute response, while actually saying nothing, in a long, drawn out, monotone voice.

JLawson:

40 reporters for about what, an hour's news conference? I'm surprised they're letting that many in at one time...

It must seriously suck to be Obama at this point. All one of those trained seals has to do is bark out of order, and he'll have a hell of a time covering the memorized response...

So I propose, to make things easier, the following.

Prescript the questions, so Obama's staff can write the answer, and assign the questions and answers numbers. That way, the scene would look like this...

Reporter: Question 1 and... Question 5.

Obama: Uh, uh, Answer 1.

Reporter: Question 5?

Obama: I already answered that... Uh, uh - Answer 4.

Reporter: Answer 4? Mr. President, that doesn't really address the problem. Question 5 again?

Obama: Uh... I think, um.... Answer 17.

Reporter: Sir - you're SURE you want to declare war on Saudi Arabia to address arsenic levels in drinking water in Albuquerque, NM?

Robert Gibbs: That's all he's got time for today, folks! We'll have another conference tomorrow! (Whispers to Obama... "17? 17? Who the hell told YOU about 17? Pelosi hasn't authorized that!")

Obama is saturating the media. He's watering down the power of the bully pulpit.

Geesh... the Fox News haters must be absolutely apoplectic with one of Fox's anchors hosting this substitute for a super-strength sedative.

Note to the obama team:

Please... oh please set the teleprompter to Phonic Spelling Mode!

On the other hand... don't! It would be comedy gold if he were to be that ignorant tonight.

I think Fox is just trying to branch out into a regularly scheduled comedy hour.

Come on guys and gals, give'em a break.

He, and his trusty "prompter," has to get on TV. With his "approval slipping to '50-50'" breaking out a "kool-aid" advertisement masquerading as a press conference is a given.

You mean "phonetic".

With his "approval slipping to '50-50'"

Citing a Zogby poll?! Tsk, tsk.

Even he who supposedly needs no linkage isn't buying it.

Never claimed I "bought it" either brian, it's just tossed up there for shits and grins.

However, I will say this, Zogby in most cases tilts his poll results in one fashion or another to the left.

WildWillie:

I am watching some of it now. I think the reporters are getting a little frustrated with his off topic monologues. Plus his teleprompter reading was way off. Tsk! Tsk! ww

Gmac:

"Obama's teleprompter will hold a news conference tonight." Looks better that way, more accurate to.

His credibility and ratings are going down faster than a prom dress after the dance. With any luck his next few screw ups will get him in Gov Patterson's range.

Steve Crickmore:


Acute insomnia, snooze conference. Are all of you completely blinded by your prejudice?

Here by comparison is Bush's last press conference...Watch the first five minutes, if you can...There is no comparison about intelligence or eloquence or ability or alertness of the two men "One common experience of the four presidents is that they have all been presidents.. Remind me of the three points, again"..and so it went.

So when you throw out irrelevant crap that even you don't believe, it's "for shits and grins", but for everyone else it's "oh so shiny disco balls". Gotcha.

Steve Crickmore:

In a word yes, but the proof of the pudding is in the eating. As Obama said if the economy doesn't recover he is finished. All this wil be just whistles and horns but Bush, unlike Cheney is supporting him too and has a lot of respect for Obama's smarts. That is what will get him through in the end.

"but Bush, unlike Cheney is supporting him too and has a lot of respect for Obama's smarts"

Unless you have seen something that Bush has said that I havent I have to state this is utter BS. Bush has basically said NO COMMENT on how Obama is doing, at least the last I heard. Feel free to enlighten me (with Proof) and if you are correct I will gladly admit my being wrong.

How will Bush supporting Obama get Him through in the end? Are they going to run on the same ticket in 2012?
