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 CIAs 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 werent grilling him about the recent news about the rebounding economy, which he began the presser with.
I think its 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 werent being created, and how come the housing market is still bad, and why isnt 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 hasnt 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.
Wheres My Birthday Question?
Where were you on 9/11/12 when men were being shot at and killed in Benghazi!!
"Ya'll be slippin..."
President Obama to Press CORPSE: Wheres My Birthday Question?
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.
Me, me, me, I, I, I. Why don’t you stop all these tough questions, and talk about me? How great I am? How much you adore me?
Ok, happy birthday. Do you have a valid birth certificate?
BIRTHDAY QUESTION: Why is your birth certificate a 9-layer PDF?
I would guess that this was the last press conference the Prez will every hold. ;-)
He always throws the fake birth certificate issue in our faces.
What a puts. Next, he’ll be installing a digital billboard to flash “”APPLAUSE” when he tells a real whopper...and the pathetic press will do it.
And he “drones some folks”.
I wish he never was conceived to begin with. I know that’s harsh....but at this point, I consider him Satan’s spawn.
True. Just ask him why he has maintained that he was born at two different Hawaiian hospitals.
That was worth watching. If you hadn't commented, I would have skipped it.
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...
But enough about me, how about how great I am????
