Talking About the Power of Talk

UPDATED: Sun is too bright and Big Guy will squint too much, so we're moving the presser inside. Good thing, too. My screens were starting to sweat.

It's a beautiful day here in Washington, and the fellows are setting me up out in the Rose Garden. Oh, I don't think Big Guy will have to use me to answer questions today; I think Gibbsy just wants to use my screens to blind reporters and stun them into submission before they ask questions.

Some people are wondering why this press conference was hastily pulled together. But that's the wrong question to be asking. See, we actually have a Presidential press conference put on the daily schedule every day of the week. We just end up canceling them when we chose not to talk about the power of talk. Sometimes we cancel all seven for the week. So people should actually be asking why we cancel so many press conferences.

Big O will open the presser with a brief statement, again encouraging the young people of Iran to listen to him the way they listened to his Cairo speech and then immediately decided that self determination was better than dictatorship. That's the power of talk he's talking about folks.

Then he'll talk about health care reform. Gibbsy and Toes think that when he talks about the need for health care reform, his talk will have the same impact on young people here in America that his talk about Iran had over there. But we don't want rioting in the streets over health care. Most of the people who do that kind of thing here tend to not have health insurance, and until they do, we don't want them getting hurt, that would just screw up our budget numbers again.


  1. What? I thought the President would be discussing his favorite ice cream flavors. Dang!

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Is he going to be singing the old refrain, "Crisis, crisis, we must turn America socialist."

    Or maybe that old favorite, "bring me your tyrants, dictators, and their cuddled lasses. We can have coffee and do lunch."

  6. (humming)I beg your pardon, I never promised you a Rose Garden....

    ahhhhhh...Uhhbama is reading the poll numbers...

    and and and

    The mean people in N Korea are trying to ruin BO's vacation plans....

    and and and

    Bad stuff is happening in Iran...

    and and and

    it is getting hot in DC...in more ways than one.

    ...(humming) along with the sunshine...you need a little rain sum'times...

  7. Okay, on the next thread, I wrote 12 posts.

    Sorry. I had innocently sat at my computer, and flipped on the telly, having NO idea that there was even a press conference scheduled for then. BANG! First thing I see is BO with his puny dander up! It was unbelievably shocking; I've never seen him be so visibly snotty and upset, and especially never with THIS press corps, who are almost totally in his tank.

    So forgive me, FOTS, for the rants at the next post. You're all correct: listening to him is very upsetting. I think I missed some of the beginning of the p. c. or I probably would be locked away, screaming, by now.

  8. Hats off to Major Garrett! Since the Dear Leader has made it clear that Fox is his enema, the gloves have come off. How dare Major ask a question such as 'what the hell took you so long!'

    What a pissant! TOTUS, you should have screened Major's questions first. He must have gone 'off you' to do his stuttering tirade...

  9. AV! I love it. :D


    MM, no need to apologize. We still have freedom of speech here and your quality always matches your quantity. Thanks for viewing the ugly scene for those of us FOTUSes who didn't get to see little Barry throw a fit.

    Bwah, ha, ha.... I'm FOR SURE going to watch Fox for a re-run of that press conf. tonight.


    Whooooohoooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!! When's that man's birthday? Yes!

  10. here's hoping their boackbones don't collapse any time soon; too bad the ManMonster wasn't there to field q's from the Fashion Eds...

  11. And, tomorrow he gets to have an ABC special on his health care program! Great objective media, lol.
