Oh, Ill bet they were. Say what you will about Axe, Gibbsy, and the rest of the crew, but Id like to think they have the basic political common sense to avoid photo ops where the president has to skip out after a minute or two to go eat gingerbread cookies.
Id like to think The One had the same basic political common sense, but we learn something new every day, dont we?
The leader of the free world and the ex-leader wandered a deserted hallway, past the offices of the senior advisers, only to discover the door to the press corps briefing room locked.

Agree and your last line was quite funny.
Go Joe. We can laugh at him while he puts his foot in his mouth daily.
NYT: White House advisors totally surprised by Obama-Clinton press conference
When I tuned into Fox News Channel and saw Bubba in front of the
wall-hanging of “The White House”, I initially thought that I was
watching archival footage from Bubba’s two terms.
I about FREAKED when I realized that an X-President was actually giving
a press conference in The White House RIGHT THEN.
Bubba’s conference SCREAMS “Obama Ain’t Up To The Job”.
Don’t expect the MSM to say that. The MSM would surely say that if this
suprising even featured two Republicans.
I’m still waiting to hear any media outlet (including Fox News Channel)
to say if such an event has ever happened before.
(I.E., a former President giving a press conference at The White House)
Also, I initially thought maybe “Obama has fired Robert Gibbs and hired Bubba
to be The White House spokesperson!!!
The trouble with OBummer, he has no one who loves him more than he loves himself.
Clinton at White House Sets Twitter on Fire
Political Washington watched, slack-jawed, as President Obama on Friday offered former President Bill Clinton the White House briefing room and Mr. Clinton took it for a full half-hour.
Wife’s a bit, I mean, life’s a bit$#!
You are correct. I was thinking of the nonconsecutive idea of of term limits. However, the 22nd amendment says there can never be more than two elected terms whether they are consecutive or not.
Wikileaks has proof he’s a Kenyan.
Thank you ma’am.
this would be the best Merry Christmas America present possible
This is no big deal, just a way to reduce the heat from left wing Democrats outraged about the deal to extend Bush administration tax cuts.
So Obama is admiting this is above his paygrade? Or it’s mission accomplished for him, on to becoming president of the UN and the world!
I believe they are all working together on this succession to power, zero starts the ball rolling for a term, bill primes the pumps for hillary in 2012, zero gets what he really wants is president of the world, head of the UN. This is a global effort with the help of the chicoms, soros and a host of international socialist globalist organizations. These criminlas are despicable in thier personal lives this is easy for them.
Clinton seemed far more informed than bama on the issues.
Second, seriously, the Dems would in any way, shape, or form let CLINTON---an old man with a very bad ticker (who looks older by the minute)---come back in? Nope. And I know you said Biden, but the whole thing with Clinton is creepy.
Obama is so weak. He is so desperate he passes the baton to an impeached POTUS.
I wonder if slick willy told him how to move to the center?
LOL there is no democratic party left to respect; so he is a one termer and they think Feingold will save them? LOL I laugh while I cry as they destroy America.
Me too. It is weird.
I want to know what he and B were snorting just before the presser. Seriously. I think they both seem high.
He can say he would run for a 2nd term but he has been asked to take a higher office where he can make a bigger mess of things
Watch the video Obama is clueless but he gives Clinton that anti christ evil look AND slick willy does cue him to stay (Obama wanted to just high tail it out and is forced to stay.)
Even the MSM seems to be seeing what a train wreck Obama is
Slide it to 10:30 Obama crosses his arms (body language)
he is closed to what slick is saying and is nervous.
OMGosh! That's a great word to describe zer0's behavior:
"Psychology The inability to maintain defense mechanisms in response to stress, resulting in personality disturbance or psychological imbalance." -- The Free Dictionary
And to think his other option offered by O was Sec State. Thanks that he “didn’t like to travel”. What a way to run a railroad!
Obama picked up a rattlesnake, and it bit him.
I think O has fallen in love with Wallis Simpson and wants to spend the rest of their days together in quiet, contemplative seclusion.
Hi Cat,text him and say we have one more question:)
Yes, we are announcing that BHO is stepping down, but no - you dont get Bubba. You get slo-jo Bidet instead.
The thought that went through my mind was that the “Ultimate” in democrat dirty tricks at this moment would be for Obama to step down and Biden to announce that he had an incurable illness and that Pelosi was to become president and Reid would become her vice president.
Truly a terrifying thought. Let’s just hope that scenario never occurs.
For whom? Clinton?
When 0bama introduced Clinton he said Bubba would be speaking BRIEFLY. I forget the exact words but some form of brief was used.
So nobody can tell us this was a planned thing, never mind a master stroke.
And a few minutes in, Clinton gave him the brush-off. 0bama tried to break in and 42 went for the touchdown.
Ate the Kenyan’s lunch and stole his ice cream too, right there on national television.
Palin’s campaign commercials practically write themselves.
You are correct. I have always though he wouldn’t finish his first term. He has never had a job he didn’t quit in about two to three years.
Has it been disclosed just exactly what Obama and Clinton talked about in their meeting before the presser? There was a lot of secrecy about it. Rather than Clinton being there to advise Obama, was he perhaps SENT to deliver an ultimatum? His actions would seem to reinforce that, and it could explain why Obama acted the way he did, he already knew he was toast.
When 0bama introduced Clinton he said Bubba would be speaking BRIEFLY.
In other words 0bama was looking for brief and he went in there a boxer. A big dawg of a boxer who immediately took over and it showed. Skinny kid went into meant-to-do-that mode and left with his bloody nose in the air.
Good question. Supposedly, it was about the tax “deal” but it was supposed to be only a brief meeting, to get Clinton to announce his support for it, and Obama had nothing else on his official WH calendar for the day. To make it stranger, the press conference itself seems to have been purely impromptu, and Bambi’s sudden realization that he had a party (!) to go to also doesn’t seem to have been pre-planned.
I’ve been thinking about this all night because it is truly the strangest thing I’ve seen in my many decades of watching politics in this country. If nothing else, it definitely gives one the unnerving feeling that things are falling apart and spinning out of control and anything could happen now.
Obama could declare himself Master of the Universe and seize special powers, or Obama could simply pack it all in and announce that he’s found the US too constraining and now he’s going off to be head of the UN or of the Olympic Committee or who knows what, or Obama could just be carried out of the WH in a straight jacket after holding the Wookie hostage for a few hours and begging to speak to Hugo Chavez.
That said, I doubt that Bill will end up president again or that Hillary will get the job, even temporarily, but I am sure there are some wild and crazy things going on at Dem central right about now.
With a staple in its navel. #24 = Most alluring post I've seen in many moons.
I think Bill had it right when he said to Obama “please go”... yes. PLEASE GO!
I guess it takes 2 Democrats to do the job of 1 Republican.
“Excuse me while I go soak my typing fingers in acid...”
Hey. Hey. All your fingers are belong to FR. Don’t forget the baking soda.
I reserve the right to be wrong, but I think some folks in DC have been smoking some mighty fine weed, man.
They had to hold the presser until dusk so Bubba could safely get out of his coffin.
Obama forgets some people can speak without a teleprompter without saying ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ummmmm LOOK! ahhhhhhhhhhh
ummmmmmmmmmmmm um ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
IIRC, The Senators who were the farthest Left in 2007-08 were 1, 2, 3, 0bama, Clinton and Biden.
You know, if 0bama becomes “unavailable” and disappears from public like some 12th imam, Biden would be acting POTUS anyway.
Timmy G & Holbrooke in the hospital for whatever.....We have a palace coup going on.
Weren’t there rumors of Clinton/Clinton 2012? Ole slick can be Veep I think.
He can also be President for ten years. If through some shenanigans he could be appointed to serve out the last two years of Obama’s term......
When my stepfather worked at the DOD, I learned the insider rumor mill was not to be taken lightly. If I had a penny for every Clinton rumor I rolled my eyes out, I would be very well off.
Ping me please if you hear any more. :-)
