Press conference

How do you feel about the press conferences Obama gives? He has a pre-selected list of reporters who have submitted their questions in advance and he has the answers prepared on the telepromter. Last night one of the reporters mistakenly asked his question out of turn. Obama continued to read from the prompter and had no idea what he was reading didn't fit the question. He appears disingenuine and more and more like the DNC's talking head.

  • BWHAHAAHAHAHH!!!!

    I avoid all Obama press conferences and "town hall" style events. I prefer to READ the transcripts, so I don't get caught up in all of the "razzle dazzle" rhetoric. I don't need Obama or his cronies explaining to me what I am fully capable of reading and comprehending on my own, thank you very much!!! LOL

    Some of you should really try just READING the plain old black and white transcripts of his speeches, the inconsistencies jump right out at you!

  • anon what do you need a link for? All you had to do is watch the conference. He gave NO answers that the American people with any sense are seeking.

  • OP: What claim? He did made a joke about the gentleman standing out of turn. He said he called on one guy and the other stood up. I was confused as what he was saying didn't answer the man's question. He did then reiterate what he had said out of order. You can choose to ignore whatever you want, but that is what happened. I don't need to get my facts from anyone but Obama himself. Nothing is twisted or misinterpreted. It just is what it is. No matter what you say, that is what the man did. Are you so scared of someone knowing it is you having an opinion that you have to use the anon button?
