Obama's dinner joke: Press in bed with me
President laughs at correspondents gala, crediting those who made him 'celebrity'

It's amazing how this man can say and do anything and get away with it. And they called Ronald Reagan the Teflon President? Puzzled The not so funny thing is that his joke reflects more truth than one could possibly care to admit.


President Barack Obama joking with the media:

At the 65th Annual Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner last night, President Barack Obama openly acknowledged that mainstream journalists are to be credited with making him a celebrity and even joked that an NBC news anchor is in bed with him.

"Why bother hanging out with celebrities when I can spend time with the people who made me one?" Obama asked the crowd of black tie journalists and media personalities gathered at the Washington Convention Center. "I know where my bread is buttered."

His joke about "NBC Nightly News" anchor Brian Williams, however, raised the ire of critics who have complained about the media's lack of objectivity in granting Obama favorable news coverage:

"I have to admit though, it wasn't easy coming up with fresh material for this dinner," Obama said. "A few nights ago, I was up tossing and turning trying to figure out exactly what to say. Finally, when I couldn't get back to sleep, I rolled over and asked Brian Williams what he thought."

Wow.... the man jokes and speaks volumes of truth at the same time. This whole Obama Mania is really getting out of hand. Ummmm folks... Our president is NOT a god and he doesn't deserve to be treated like one? WTF is up with the press these days????

Simply crude and in poor taste. Not the sort of comment that one can respect from the Office of the President.

But he does portray himself as being a mighty 'god-like' figure.

Oooh! Oooh! Another slung arrow for Spyglass as I sit back. Evil

Are You Freer Today Than You Were Before Obama?

Speaking of being presidential, Bush II was lucky to put one or two coherent sentences together at any given time, and Regan was asleep at the wheel from day one; so all you Repubs get over it.

If your boy Barry is so presidential and coherent, why does he have a teleprompter feet from his face at all times? Wonder if he needs it to talk to his family and friends? Gets to be like crack eventually. And, why has he placed that strangling muzzle on Biden????

Never ceases to amaze me. People regurgitate crap until they start to believe it's real. Bush went to Yale and then Harvard Business School and yet, he is incoherent. I'm sure your resume is equally impressive....

You just can't eliminate "Bush" from your "hate list" can you? How about addressing the original issue--what do you think of the President's comment about "being in bed with the Press?" Is that too hard?

If we had one-term limits, they would automtically be thrown out every term!
His side now doesn't have enough votes to do anything significant. They ruined themselves with radicalism, selfishness, racism, hoggishness, deception, conning, etc.

Beck is just another fruitcake that is on Faux News. Of course he fits right in with the other fruitcakes on there and all you can do is laugh at these silly people..poor things.

over a year ago he wanted Ron Paul supporters beaten and tortured by the police and military and now he tries to be all buddy-buddy with him.

Beck is nothing but a little ninnying change-agent for the puppet-masters who took over the federal government last October. He makes me sick with his crocodile tears for "his coutry." All the while lying to our face, and trying to co-opt the Truth/Patriot movements!

What a traitor.

Beck is Sid Gottleib's bastard son. He was made in the Telegraph Hill safehouse. He had a torrid affair with Gunther Russbacher back in the late 80s. Raylen didn't -- and doesn't -- mind watching. But you knew that.

He's also Cathy O'Brien -- but don't tell nobody, yo.

... And his was the bodyshape used as the prototype for those 18 million FEMA coffins.

Yep, they hired him right after I retired! And the Mockingbird still sings!

Note the Bush bashing.. striking in their ignorance.. Notice the blathering.. and the reference to Reagan or in Zena's fevered mind.. REGAN..and then the final example.. telling Repubs to "Get over it" all the while spraying spittle over Obama taking a little heat.. Classic really...

Look at Prezbo's approval and disapproval numbers and project them forward about 15 months - right before the mid-term elections - you know, the one where everyone in the House and about 1/3 of the Senate could get replaced.

My prediction (and last hope) is that the voters of this country will wake up, read the Glenn Beck letter and realize that 10 or 12% unemployment even after massive government spending to hold the unemployment figure below 8% (their stated goal) is not working. Nor is rampant socialism or fascism or whatever this mindless liberal manchurian candidate of a President is promoting. Out with him (in 2012) and in 2010 let's get rid of the morons in Congress in both parties who refuse to stand up and vote the way the people want - you know, the ones they are supposed to represent. And take the press with you. What a bunch of mindless robots.

So, if all that happens will there be some right wing die hards who will have a case of BODS? Barack Obama Derangement Syndrome.
