‘Extraordinarily Irresponsible’ —
Obama Gives Pointless, Yet Damaging,
Press Conference

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/6/2014 9:08:52 PM

President Obama gave a press conference this evening. He started a little over an hour late without explanation. Reporters stuck to asking questions that they evidently knew Obama would be comfortable answering. None of them asked him about any of his administration scandals. ABC’s Jon Karl, usually a tough questioner of Obama and his spokesmen, asked a rambling question that played right into the Democrats’ “economic patriotism” canard. Despite the fact that the president showed a passionless, bloodless, disinterested face to the world, he still managed to do some damage. Chris Jansing of CNN asked Obama if the sanctions against Russia are working.

Comments:
I could not bring myself to watch that train wreck. From the comments I have read I don´t understand why he even did it. He looks frail, weak and pathetic. Not something I want to see in my president.

I watched, silly me, and I don´t know what he said. I think he just likes to himself speak and loves the sound of his voice. If he spends enough time wandering around a subject, then he can end the conference when his time is up and doesn´t need to make any sense. He doesn´t speak English very well. He drops the ´g´ at the end of words and sounds like an idiot. That´s redundant isn´t it.

A pathetic, prevaricating performance. And Jon Karl...Dude...that was a classic slobbering love affair MSM walkabout pretzel of a question, giving Obama about 12 different angles to escape the original intent of the kinda-sorta question.

The last sentence says it all:

It was a poor performance made all the poorer by the media’s lack of any detectable backbone.

Remarkable to me... at the end how he turned and strode away rapidly with a touch of syncopation like a cool dude glad to be done with the bother.

He proves time and time again that, while he may have attended prestigious universities, he received NO education.

He cannot speak. He has ZERO command of the language. he has poor grammar, uses the wrong words, runs on and on hoping to find a point. Often he actually contradicts himself because of the use of double negatives.

Unless it is written for him...he is useless.

Remember he has a LAW DEGREE...a profession where it is imperative that wording be exact. Can you imagine him addressing a jury?

NBC polling indicates around 75%+ of Americans are disgusted with him and have lost hope their children will fare better in life than they did. NBC!

I think this is unprecedented and if the White House thought this press conference helped, they´re more stupid than Obama sounded tonight.

It was the usual sickening spectacle.

The leftist lapdogs asked a series of two-part questions - - each of which had the same theme - -

1. How does it feel to be as amazing as you are?
2. How do you manage to tolerate those awful Republicans?

The world is burning - - and the ;lapdogs are just whimpering.

Call me crazy, but I am convinced that he is being prompted someway when he speaks without the teleprompter. Watch the way he says about a dozen words and then he pauses and his eyes go down as if he is listening to something. Then he speaks another few words and repeats.

It´s way past time to applaud OP for finding and posting all these articles, day after day. On one level it´s encouraging to see how many writers are catching on and/or risking some kind of retaliation for revealing the true nature of Obama and his administration. On another level, it´s quite disturbing to read about so much going on that can cause our country to fall into chaos at any time.

OP, hope I´m speaking for everyone here when I say your hard work is much appreciated by all. Thank you.

The day the American electorate wants an extraordinarily responsible president is the day they stop electing Democrats to the job.

At least Dear Leader, our own Cicero, always manages to give the word "meaninglessness" new and unimagined resonance.

#12 - you have to wonder - if he is being prompted, either thru a listening device, or perhaps someone somewhere furiously typing - in consonants and an occasional vowel - responses which could be read from a screen in the podium´s surface - just who is coming up with the "clearly-thought-out" gobbledygook he comes up with.

(For some reason, I watched most of it on C-span and thought he looked exhausted.)

The 30% who still think Obama is doing a great job are made up of the media and those people (we all know some) who don´t watch the news, have no clue what is going on outside their own neighborhood, and refer to anything going on in Washington as ´politics´.

I was just thinking. To the leftists in this country: If there was not one conservative or republican in this country, Obama would still be the worst president ever. It´s not us, it´s YOU that is the problem!
Not only because you are idiots, mean spirited, evil, but because you don´t have the introspection to see yourselves as you really are, and more importantly, you can´t see that your lord and master is the chief idiot, the pinnacle of evil and a liar and .....just go back to post six and read it again. Not a comprehensive list, but it will do.

It is well known in the black community that there is "White time" and "Black time". If it is a white audience, they will be kept waiting simply because the speaker can do it. It´s time for the networks to give them a few minutes leeway, then return to their regular program and not give them a forum.

I watched it (accidentally -- I was tuned to Fox News when he just popped up.)

He was incoherent. His eyes were not just dead but he looked as though he was trying to stay awake, wobbling a bit. I watched and listened closely.

The inconsistency was immediately glaring, about how he "doesn´t know" if the sanctions are working and how "the sanctions are working." I said to my spouse, "He just totally contradicted what he said a minute earlier."

The entire press conference was Obama trying desperately to be cool and sound like he knew what he was talking about. The actual impression left was that he was totally out of it and had no idea what was going on outside in the real world.

Protecting this man is going to kill this country. The media had better get on this quickly -- their careers are at stake, too.

My fondest wish .... that he will call a presser and no one shows up. But I know it will never happen. I´m living for the day when there is a newscast on the AM radio station that either doesn´t lead with news about him or lead with an audio of something he´s said. All day every day since about 2007. Enuf already!

Confronted by events that threaten serious harm to our nation, Mr. Obama was characteristically glib and pompous.

Obama´s attitude is that of a professor whose job it is to know the subject and comment with erudition about it but who has absolutely no responsibility for achieving results that would make the situation better.

It would be nice if we had a President who understood his job.

We watched it and my husband commented that "anyone who says that BO is a great orator, doesn´t know what a great orator is".

Hearing BO constantly repeat "ah, um, ahhh, umm, ah, ah" is enough to make me flip out.

The very definition of, "If you can´t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with BS".

Not from the same pressed, but yesterday on the radio I heard a sound byte of him talking about the importance of protecting Crimea´s borders, sovereignty, language and culture. All the while he is destroying those very things in America.

If the demoncrats had once iota of shame or concern for the future of the country and their party, they´d force him to resign.

The DC establishment and the media all gossip with each other. They all know (with anecdotes) what we can see. Obama is not all there, maybe drugs, who knows. They know he is not in charge. Not one member of the press will report this. Not one establishment Republican will inform the American people.

For reasons I can´t explain, I listened to the entire thing. As a member of Toastmasters, I quickly kicked into Speech Evaluation mode. The whole thing was a debacle. The reporters´ questions were disjointed and indecipherable, and Barry´s answers were rambling and incoherent, punctuated with a grossly excessive amount of ers, ahs, ums and other crutch words along with stuttering and stammering and occasionally repeating himself. He seemed to be filibustering nonsense so as to kill time so that there be less opportunity for additional questions. It was a text book display in how not to give a speech. He should be totally embarrassed by this performance, but knowing him, he probably thinks he delivered another Gettysburg Address.

Drudge said it best this morning:" White House Wines and Dines Dictators and Homophobes."
As to the coherence re: the rest of his speech, which was more than an hour late (promptness is the courtesy of kings----and this guy is no king---it is ALWAYS "I am late because I can call the shots") I started watching each answer to questions re: his pen and his phone, but they were largely and typically incoherent, and why does it matter anyway: he NEVER follows through on anything he says.

I was channel surfing last night, and I ran across the Charlie Rose program. He was interviewing the chap from The Economist who had a recent long interview with Obama, who swore that he was intelligent and articulate. Actually, if you listen to audio of that interview, Obama doesn´t sound like his usual stumblebum self.

Somewhat in the mindset that would have led a 1930s German Jew to listen to a radio broadcast by Der F?hrer, I tried to watch Obama´s speech yesterday.

The only constructive info gained was a slightly enhanced understanding of the psychology behind Scarlett Ohara´s penchant for dramatic tardy descents down the plantation mansion´s staircase.

Couldn´t understand what he was trying to say. After reflection, couldn´t be sure what he actually said.
Then again, it is not important because what Obama says has little or no relationship to what he has done, intends to do or even what he will do and even less connection to actual facts.

Only 898 days until January 20, 2017. Hope we last that long. [sigh]

I just could not subject myself to the torture of watching Obama. Thank you all for watching and reporting back. (I knew I could count on you.).

Evidently it was, as I expected, quite a performance. However, my thoughts are on the media. They truly are reprehensible. I do not expect them to attack him but they certainly could ask short pointed questions and follow up. It is apparent they are not seeking truthful answers. They just want to make their guy look good. However, it is getting more difficult to do that because Obama is unraveling. He, more than likely, has never had to be this engaged in his job before, or even this accountable. This position is forcing him to work and it is too much. I agree that he probably is hitting pretty hard whatever may be his drug of choice. He is addlepated and incomprehensive. How long would the media accept this kind of performance from a Republican President before the rumors started and the jokes started flying on late night TV. It would probably shock us all to know exactly how this President spends his down time. One thing we all do know is the media elites in this country are worthless ideologues.

I CANNOT BELIEVE I watched most of this dreck! Through most of it I didn´t know whether I should laugh or cry. I got a special hoot when he was opining about the lack of media freedom and human rights in Africa. This from a ´man´ who practically dictates to a lapdog media what they can/cannot report and whose ´administration´ goes after those few in the media who will not comply; and who even as I type this is probably on a golf course dreaming up thousands more pages of regulations with which to hamstring us.
And don´t get me started about his grammer!! Can he give even one talk without using the words ´the folks´ and ´a whole bunch of........? (fill in the blank).
I finally had it and turned the channel to EWTN. OY!

The presser was tuned in, not watched, and (must say) the audio was somewhat ignored. Jonah Goldberg, on Bret Baier´s broadcast said it best when asked what he thought. Jonah came back with a snappy reply about being bowled over hearing such great orator using his craft. Ouch that had to hurt. Sorry JG,your word for word has been blurred since sleep.

Please get the puppet on stage every week as many times as one might stand it. Perhaps the lofos will become as sick of seeing the image as most normal Americans are. Not only are the Ruskies laughing themselves silly, the common folks in this Nation are doing the same.

Compare this torture to having a seat in a theater watching a very bad movie but not wanting to leave because I want to get my monies worth. So, will continue to watch until ´The End´

It is the least I can do in an attempt to get the news out as so many others (like you) do every day. As we have seen so often, Fox News reports on many of the articles that have been posted in this forum.

He looks and sounds like someone who needs an old fashioned lobotomy. Most days he is incoherent and other days a replica of his Occidental College drug afflicted, self important Marxist dorks that smart people try avoid.

He has always been pointless, irresponsible, and damaging to himself and others. Russian students made fun of him recently with a laser light show projected on the US Embassy in Moscow depicting him eating a banana on his birthday.

This is only going to get worse. He faces countless investigations and harassment when he leaves office and may have to move to one of his beloved Muslim countries to escape prosecution or worse. They aren´t going to put up with Wookies and the Grandma from hell.

Anyone notice that, in addition to dropping his "g"s, his "s"s whistle? Once you´re aware of it, it´s incredibly annoying and at the same time funny (in a pathetic way - it´s almost like Monty Python time). I´ve also noticed that he employs a whining voice more and more often. In addition, has anyone else noticed that he frequently now leans on his elbow, not bothering to stand up straight? I don´t recall other presidents doing this. He looks and sounds very unpresidential... more and more so.

I was so depressed and cynical about this hater and his intentional destruction of OUR country, that I wasn´t even going to post (if you can believe that) but three posters prompted me to join.

Yes, it probably would. And most of his time is downtime.

I´m convinced he had a wireless earpiece in the second debate with Romney.
He probably uses one often and has someone feeding him answers.
He is a person who can´t put a coherent sentence together and probably couldn´t answer how old he is without some um um um uh uhs.

I predict that before this Fraud leaves office, we will suffer some sort of disastrous event. It may be another 9/11 style attack or it may be economic in nature or something totally unexpected. Whatever it is will result from his complete disengagement.

I also predict that after he´s finally gone, stories of drug abuse and incompetence will emerge on a scale so huge that we won´t be able to comprehend how it could have happened.

Didn´t watch the "show", but the descriptions sound a lot like the fool was stoned. He´s not very bright or articulate without the telepropter, and when stoned - look out, coherency and rational thought (even Marxist thought) fall face down and lay there.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

An Iraq war veteran who launched his own aid group to provide medical help for Syrian war refugees has been named as the next potential victim of ISIS. Former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig, 26, who was providing aid to Syrian refugees, has been confirmed as the latest American hostage to be held by Islamic State militants. At the end of a video showing the beheading of British aid worker Alan Henning in Syria, which emerged on the internet tonight, Mr Kassig is shown on his knees next to ´Jihadi John´.

House: Comprehensive

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was on “Special Report,” where he discussed the Ebola threat, border security and the Secret Service security lapses. "The Secret Service agency merits an independent review right now," Johnson said of the security incidents. Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

MSNBC anchor Krystal Ball and NBC correspondent Anne Thompson shamelessly politicized the Ebola crisis in a Thursday op-ed on MSNBC.com. Ball and Thompson bewailed how due to "Senate dysfunction and NRA opposition, we don´t have a surgeon general right now....during a time when, we not only have Ebola arriving on our shores, but are also dealing with the mysterious Enterovirus, which is infecting and contributing to the deaths of children in the U.S." The two on-air personalities led their piece, "How the NRA is making the Ebola crisis worse," by noting that "poll by Harvard found that 39% of U.S.

HUD Official Pleads Guilty To

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

I’m always sceptical when I hear scare-mongering claims about diseases. From bird flu to SARS, we’re repeatedly told it’s going to be the new Plague that will wipe everyone out and then…it doesn’t. Probably because the scare-mongering itself makes people take it seriously enough to prevent it spreading. But there is something very sinister and frightening about this Ebola outbreak, which has so far infected 7,100 and killed 3,300.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
