President Obama to Press Corps: Where’s My Birthday Question?
Mediaite ^ | 1 Aug 2014 | Tina Nguyen

Posted on 08/01/2014 5:15:21 PM PDT by mandaladon

In the middle of a tough press conference covering a wide range of difficult topics — the situation in Ukraine, the Israeli-Hamas conflict, the CIA’s admission that it had spied on the Senate, ISIS, Ebola, etc. — Barack Obama lost his legendary cool and asked the White House pool why they weren’t grilling him about the recent news about the rebounding economy, which he began the presser with.

“I think it’s useful for me to end by just reminding folks that in my first term, if I had a press conference like this, typically, everybody would want to ask about the economy, and how come jobs weren’t being created, and how come the housing market is still bad, and why isn’t it working?” he said.

“You know what? What we did worked, and the economy is better. And when I say that we have just had six months of more than 200,000 jobs that hasn’t happened in 17 years, that shows you the power of persistence.”

“I thought that you guys were going to ask me how I was going to spend my birthday,” he said in exasperation as the conference broke into non-birthday questions. “What happened to the birthday thing?”

Minutes later, he admitted that the CIA “tortured some folks” during the Bush Administration.

I saw that...

He was expecting congratulations and worshipping, and got hard questions, instead. He started calling on only “Reliable” reporters, sfter that.

Do we even know where he was then , and what he did once he was informed of the attack?

As far as I know he went to bed after hearing the news.

I never thought I’d see such a beautiful sight-—a roomful of reporters yelling questions at Obama all at once. It was as if they snapped out of their worshipful haze for a moment and acted like a genuine press corps.

I thought the clearly (at least I thought so anyway) planted question from former state democratic party chairman and now supposed news man Bill Press was his birthday present...

Really? Press is worried the US has lost standing in the world and is going to ask the president himself. News flash... The US president may be a significant factor in our standing throughout the world, but he is NOT the judge or arbiter of that question. That judgement is made from outside these walls.

Add to that a weak answer despite the set up question and I was left laughing in my truck. All alone. Like a crazy man. Hope no one saw...

Why did you use American funds, personnel, equipment and facilities to overthrow the government of Libya?

...and a follow up birthday question: After overthrowing the government of Libya, why did you neglect to take appropriate measures to secure and protect American diplomats and security personnel in Benghazi that led to their deaths at the hands of terrorists?

These aholes are falling from grace. Reminds me of the 50s sci-fi movie, War of the Worlds, when the alien ships were crashing to Earth...picture obozo in his mom jeans and helmut crashing his bike, and falling off. Same thing. Obozo’s wheels are beginning to fall off. Ya!

He must define folks both as the media... and terrorists.

He is worse than narcistic, he has the reins of power, he is in fact, an effin’ fascist.No joke.

He intends to create enough disorder so he can declare martial law, and postpone the 2016 presidential elections.

I have no doubt whatsoever about that. We are just beginning to understand what , “ I’ll act alone!” really means.

Obama fascism, the historical case:

Well...what I see is, he’s acting like someone who knows they were “finished” before they even got started. Even the “adolescent kids” on my block are considerably more sensible than he.
