“I masturbate to you at nigh– I mean, what is it about the office…?”

If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?

CapitalistPig on April 29, 2009 at 10:22 PM

I believe that the NY Times really believes that in the “Magic Negro” theory.

Must be why Arlen switch parties so he could better explain it.

William Amos on April 29, 2009 at 10:23 PM

“Enchanted”? Good God another “girly-man” journalist! wanna-be. He probably still lives in his Mommy’s basement.

Huh.

The filthy bastard got through the first 100 days and even got Arlen Specter to confess his sins and become a Democrat disciple of the bastard to boot! He’s still the most evil President in modern times but gosh darn doesn’t the media love him?

Here’s hoping that the ultimate backlash is sooner rather than later and so severe that the filthy liar is completely neutralized until the adults get back in charge.

This just shows that “Pinch” — the talking New York Times on “Red Eye” — is given way too much of a masculine personality by Bill Schulz.

jon1979 on April 29, 2009 at 10:36 PM

“Ah yes thank you Prince Obama, ar-Rahman, war-Rahim, wa-Rasuul Barack.

Are you comfortable at this press conference, Prince?

I mean, it is a tad on the warm side in here, is there anything I can do for you before I ask my question? Oh, while we’re on the topic — it won’t be too hard of a question. You know, the boilerplate stuff.

‘How’s the dog?’
‘Is the W.H. food what you’d thought it would be?’
‘Boxers or Briefs?’”

blatantblue on April 29, 2009 at 10:36 PM

What amazes me is how many people seem to suck it up. Half the country didn’t think it was a silly question. They really DO want to know how he is so uber – whatever. Scary times..

I think it was back in November when I predicted the first question the press would ask President Obama would be “What makes you so great?”

Turns out I wasn’t far off.

He speaks pretty clearly, even with his mouth full. Talk about teabagging…

“Uh, now, uh…..I’d like to call on next..uh, Sally Blowmemeister from NBC.”

“Thank you so much Prince Obama. I have multiple lipsticks tonight, if you know what I’m saying, Prince Obama. You know, our own private Rainbow Party.”

I can’t be contained~!!

blatantblue on April 29, 2009 at 10:38 PM

Some enchanted evening
You may see a Obama,
you may see a Obama
Across a crowded room
And somehow you know,
You know even then
That somewhere you’ll see the One
Again and again.

Some enchanted evening
Obama may be laughin’,
You may hear him laughin’
Across a crowded room
And night after night,
As strange as it seems
The sound of his laughter
Will sing in your dreams.

Who can explain it?
Who can tell you why?
Fools give you reasons,
Wise men never try.

Some enchanted evening
When you find your true love,
When you feel him call you
Across a crowded room,
Then fly to his side,
And make him your own
Or all through your life you
May dream all alone.

Once you have found him,
Never let him go.
Once you have found him,
Never let him go!

Loxodonta on April 29, 2009 at 10:38 PM

“Mr. President, are you ultra awesome or just awesome?”

Cripes. This is what passes for journalism now – what used to be questions only posed to teen heart throbs in Tiger Beat?

Did anyone have the b*lls to ask about the AF1 in NYC thing? Or is that why El Presidente didn’t call on Foxnews? Because he knew he’d be asked an actual question instead of this crap.

I think some of the questions were fairly tough, to be quite honest. Especially the one who pressed him on whether he would use enhanced interrogation in a ticking-bomb scenario, which forced Obama to fudge considerably.

Bullshit. I don’t know whether your standards of “toughness” are low or if you are a complete and total disciple of Obama but those questions were designed not to offend the filthy liar. Any “tough” question was engineered so that the simple-minded would think the filthy liar is communicating.

Here is the reality. This was a propaganda event. No real questions, just the opportunity for the filthy liar in the White House to get prime time coverage of his lies. Barak Hussein Obama remains the greatest domestic enemy of America no matter how much of a crush simpletons like you have on his words.

1. Sweet, lovely Obama, when did you first realize you were just like Jesus Christ?
2. You are the One, and as you have rightfully said, you have “a gift”! What will be your greatest gift to our terrible, sad, sodden country, sweet Obama?
3. Sweet Obama, I missed a mortgage payment. Can you change the credit laws so I don’t have to pay that back any more? Thank yewwww….
4. Isn’t it true that, just like Jesus healed the sick, you are healing a sick nation??! (I love you!!)
