Skip to comments.NYT: White House advisors totally surprised by Obama-Clinton press conference

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.

It was clearly premeditated because Obama and Clinton were looking for reporters and Obama would have known he was leaving before that if you believe his excuse. This shows how much his is in over his head and desperate.
He abdicated the thrown. Clinton should have announced a palace over throw.
No gaffe made by a Republican will top this one made today by Obummer, who sent us back in time with Clinton at the WH podium, while he went to wifey’s tea party!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ASTOUNDING! Surely Obama is not really planning to run in ‘12.
I've been saying that from the very beginning.
President Cloward-Piven doesn't need to terms. The goal is to overwhelm the system and bring the United States to its knees.
Chrissy Matthews thought it was a master stroke.
I thought Obama was smarter than this.
Clinton is a crafty old serpent. I’m reminded of the story where the man picks up the rattlesnake that swears not to bite him.
A snake is a snake is a snake.
How stupid do you have to be, even for Obama AND Clinton, to think this was a good idea?
All you have to do is look at this pic to know that Clinton was salivating at bringing Obambi down a notch or two.
Chrissy Matthews thought it was a master stroke.
Even Matthews recognized a disaster and quickly began the media cover for Obama. What a guy.
Even some left wing bloggers are saying it’s like Barry grabbed two beers and opened the evacuation slide.
The Commander in Chief publicly running away and admitting that
he’s afraid of the First Lady is an awful message
to send to the troops in battle.
And to the enemy, but, I’m sure they’ve already sized up this wussy coward.
Then Her Cankleness swoops in to "save" Us.
Sounds like that will lead to a tingle up the leg....
For some reason this thread is a MAJOR deja-vu moment for me like I seen this exact thread before, comments and all.
“some left wing bloggers are saying its like Barry grabbed two beers and opened the evacuation slide..”
LOL! Great analogy!
I’m guessing you mean TWO terms, not to terms?
Anyway, gas prices near and above $3 per gallon!
Obama and the Magilla gorilla first lady are done.
Yes, right after Obama pulled Clinton forcefully away from his favorite sink, they went looking for reporters that bill could impress while Obama slinked away.
He couldn't wait to jump back into the spotlight and Obambi dissed him real good. They hate each other and Clinton played right into Obambi’s hands. He forgot Zero hated him and didn't see the insult coming. All he could see was his chance to play the big shot again.
What two miserable, incompetent egomaniacs. It would have been the perfect time for a suicide bomber.
He's thin and gaunt, with any luck he's sick and joins Teddy K soon.
It’s unbelievable. It’s as if Obama abdicated his power to a former president. When I heard the reporter say Mr. President to Clinton behind that podium, it was surreal.
A bloodless coup by “BJ” Bill and Hillary! WOW!and perectly carried off without a shot (that we know of).
Surprised? I am sure their hair will be standing on end until sometime into the new year.
Something serious is up this evening, according to my cousin, an insider at the DNC in DC (sent me a text.) Joe Biden might be the next POTUS by Monday evening.
This is just one step in Obama keeping his end of the deal struck in that private meeting with Hilary before she withdrew in 08. She will be the dem candidate in 2012. No doubt about it now.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tell us more!!!
Cousin won’t tell me more, or I’d tell ya.
Stop scaring people!
That most definitely deserves its own thread.
Coup d’etat for the Kenyan
Hoo boy! A thousand Freepers and lurkers just read that, and started salivating at the mere thought of it.
I've been one of the crowd who has hypothesized that Obama won't make it to the end of his term. Not only does he not have what it takes to do the job, he's re-ignited our inner Minuteman, and nearly caused the complete collapse of his party. I'm sure that a lot of heavy players on his side want to see him go. Some of them are probably even maneuvering him in that direction.
That is my thought as well
After seeing Obambi abdicate to Clinton....I wondered if it could get any more surreal tonight..and yep..it just did.
My cousin likes to tantalize me, knowing my reactionary political stands. But he’s a good Catholic truth teller. It might all be resolved over the weekend, and we’ll know nothing more of it, but as he texted, something is “simmering” over there.
Obama’s “My Pet Goat” moment. Karma is sweet.
So, did your cousin only say that "something serious is up this evening...", or did he also add in the part about Joe Biden being "president by Monday evening"?
Either way, it's a very intriguing statement.
Hmmm....could just be Bozo and his handlers steaming over the realization of what an incredible faux pas Obama committed by walking out of that presser today, and how it looked like he was punked by Bill Clinton.
Like you said, it could all blow over by Monday morning, but it sure is a tantalizing communique from inside the belly of the beast.
I don’t personally believe it, but hypothesizing for a moment...can you imagine the lefty jaws dropping;
“Yes, we are announcing that BHO is stepping down, but no - you don’t get Bubba. You get slo-jo Bidet instead.”
The congress’ price for a DADT and tax bill and budget and dream act may be Obama’s head on a platter after the historic shellacking the dems got in the election, while Hillary hid out overseas. The Wiki leak that destroyed her seems to be a retaliation for her not helping with the election, and to make sure she does not emerge again in 2012. One can only hope that we end up with Biden instead of Pelosi - think about that. Things are really out of control on capitol hill, and the wookie looks like she has had enough of the whole scene. It would not surprise me in the least for Omullah to abdicate on Sunday and Biden be sworn in.
Obama’s the most irresponsible, incompetent president in history.
They've got America held captive in the back seat of their car, going 100 mph, and don't have a freakin clue how to drive it.
It may turn out to be the most incredible faux pas ever committed by a sitting President. I have been following politics for 50 years now, since I was 10 years old when I worked at an Elect Nixon President headquarters in 1960 (stamping envelopes) and have never seen anything like this. We shall see what happens.
Just imagine the wailing if Bush or any Republican president had done this.
He was late for a party???? WTF???
How in the world did you ever come to that thought?
Going to the party is part of the job
Answering reporters is not part of the job
Obama brought in Clinton to tell America how bad it will be if we revert back to the taxes rates we had when he (D) was in office.
“Look America. I sucked. If this doesn’t pass we’ll do what I did all over again.”
I would cut him some slack if he’s going to something more important, but the excuse he gave was a joke
I think it was ironic.
