    I didn’t catch the news conference, as I figured it would be a complete media love-fest.

    I heard about the ‘enchanted’ question this morning — I guess it was worse than I pictured.

    Not one question about Air Force One buzzing NYC?

    Are you kidding me? Bush would have been impeached by now for a stunt like that.

    Latest rumor’s I hear say the buzzing was all for an upcoming movie about the Tuskegee airman

    Further speculation on the Tuskegee airman movie theory

    I listened to the press conference (not watched).

    It was striking.

    It was striking how amazingly naive and inexperienced Obama seemed in almost every answer.

    Look people. I want Obama to succeed. But every policy of his – every one – is naive and without regard for past precedent and with the amazing “faith” that because he is making the decision that things will work out.

    He ridiculed substantive arguments against his action with simpliciy and no understanding.

    Regarding the torture area of the press conference – I feel pretty sure that this will be THE defining naivety of Obama. I HOPE NOT. I do not wish anything bad on America. I know for sure that evil exists and will use this weak president for their benefit.

    I disagree his answers were naive. The entire “drool session” was a superbly coordinated propaganda piece. He extended his non-answers so as to limit the number of questions asked. He managed in many answers to just repeat many of the main points he made in the opening statement. He may have seemed inexperienced, but you were listening carefully to the substance and not taking in the overall effect.

    The Left has this media thing totally wrapped up. Until there is someway found to break through their stranglehold on the information stream, they are going to dominate; especially now that they are in power. Feeling more pessimistic everyday.

    Someone should start a pool on when the public stops watching/caring about his performances. At some point the president cannot be just a celebrity. JFK was saved from this by events like Cuba etc. But Obama also has too many talking heads out there. Biden, Hillary, Napolitano and more are all eager to expound on their new found importance.

    physicsguy, I’m with ya

    Yeah, even “Joe Franklin” had more pizazz.

    I once spent a summer in an Air Force survival camp in Louisiana where sleeping in a 6X6x6 hole in the ground filled with 6″ inches of water was the norm. In the late evenings the trainers would climb down into the hole (a minimum of two), and they would water board you to get you to merely give up your unit and location. This type of conditioning was to get us ready for being captured by the enemy. Very few relented to this method because it was easy to adapt to.. I hardly thought that this could be considered any more than moderate harassment and that if that was all that the enemy had that I was going to have to endure in captivity I would come through with flying colors. Sleeping in the hole in chigger ville was more annoying or having the guards stuff water moccasins in your flight suit while your hands and feet were bound.
    I would suggest that the bind and gag Obama and make him sit through endless hours of his own speeches but that most probably would only cause him joy.

    I can’t watch these things more because of my growing resentment of the Press rather than Obama. Its just sickening to watch people hired to do a job, and they do everything BUT their job. And win awards for it!

    I wish the hippies in the 60′s would have just come out and stated “We’re against the oppresive establishment so we can make our own doubly oppressive establishment”.

  12. SAB Says:

    I can’t watch him because his just so damned boring! We already know exactly what he is going to say. Nothing, absolutely nothing. And the prim school marm look on his face is giving me major ODS. Obama “Depression” Syndrome. I have never felt so down.

    Sorry to comment off topic – But I need some help.

    Every blog that I read on a regular basis that has a post with an embedded Youtube video seems to hijacked on my computer with another video. Every blog seems to have the same video regardless of what the poster intended, but the videos change each day.

    I have cleared my internet cache, rebooted, both several times and run my Norton anti-virus scan. Nothing seems to work. – any suggestions?

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
