Obama Ditches His Tax-Cut Press Conference

By Wyatt Earp | December 12, 2010

Yes, I know I am really late with this, but I wanted to post the video anyway. President Obama held a joint press conference with former President Clinton on Friday to address the tax-cut deal he brokered with the GOP. President Clinton made a few statements and decided to field some questions. Then it got really bizarre:

Former President Bill Clinton gave a statement after his meeting with President Obama about his tax compromise with the Republicans.

[A]fter his statement, Clinton began to take questions from the press with Obama at his side. Obama leaves promptly after a few moments and said he had to see Michelle, as he was keeping her “waiting.”

Are you frakkin’ kidding me? How does a sitting president walk out of his own press conference?? Guess where Obama went? He left to attend the White House Christmas party. Glad to know the president has his priorities in order.

    Elitist contempt is what I sense from the look on Clinton’s face while Obama speaks. Perhaps this indicates that Clinton’s pre-election opinion of the ‘anointed one’ still exists.

    It wasn’t a Christmas party he was rushing off to, he was going to the hospital to have an x-ray done on his back. They’re searching for his spine. Let’s hope that while he was there, he took his balls out of M’Chel’s purse and had them reattached.

    I didn’t mind seeing Bill Clinton at the podium with oBama.

    However, I thought it was a little cold of Clinton to send oBama out to fetch him a cup of coffee.

    Piper – I think it does. Obama certainly hasn’t done anything to quell that feeling.

    Mrs. Crankipants – It’s okay, Mooch’elle has enough balls for the both of them.

    Michael – It’s about time someone put him to work.

    Funny stuff. The man-child brings in the star reliever and then bails out. Political theater is so fun to watch. I read an article last night that said it was really the only thing Obama could do since two politicians sharing one camera is a bad idea. They are self destructing and hopefully the Republicans have a plan to catch the pieces.

    Well, anyone hoping Obama was capable of compromise and “triangulation” was surely disappointed. That graceless and viciously partisan speech in which Obama announced his grudging “compromise” on tax rates was proof of that, which is why he brought in Clinton to help him do his job. At least Clinton was capable of sounding a conciliatory note to the other side, when he absolutely had to…

    That said: From here out, any liberal who attacks Sarah Palin for resigning as governor of Alaska should be forced to watch this video…if necessary, strapped down to a dentists’ chair and with eyelids propped open A Clockwork Orange-style.

    By bringing in Clinton to pinch-hit for him and then making an excuse to leave, Obama just told the entire world, in action if not words, that the job of President is too big for him.

    That includes our nation’s enemies, who I’m sure are also taking note of how Obama was willing to cave to a political opposition Obama and his political allies just spent the past week slandering as “hostage takers.”

    Ingineer66 – Especially after fumbling the ball so often in the past. They need to step up and explain the differences between them and the Democrats.

    Wes S. – I keep hearing rumors that he won’t run for re-election. I don’t buy that, but it would be a good idea. I’m starting to think that he is not electable anymore.

    Yeah, that’s presidential behavior.

    Rick – Well, he is the first black president.

    RT – Hey, he had a party to attend! He never gets to go out anymore.

    Lots of bad things going on, economy, domestic terrorism, unemployment, and this dumbass is worried about his wife is going to be mad about being late for a Christmas party?? Are you kidding me? He should have collected his balls from Michelle and told her that there are things more important than partying…LIKE HIS JOB ! Friggin’ moron.

    Jon – The man looks really pathetic in that video.

    DL474 – It’s like I’ve said before: Obama never wanted the job. He just wanted the perks that came with the job. Fiddling while America burns. That’s change we can believe in.

    He had to teleprompter.

    Fenway – No such luck. I checked.

    Bob – Not in the historical sense, anyway.

    Skip – You have to wonder if he needs a teleprompter during family dinners. (Script) “How was your day, Michelle?”
