One More Day


I’m going to make a wild prediction:
Fox News will crush CBSNBSABCCNNMSNBCPBSCNBC. I may be wrong. I was wrong the last time I made such a prognostication. Terribly wrong. And absolutely never happier to be so. Had my prediction of Mme. Pantsuit gotten elected, I wouldn’t be sitting here doing this.

For those into industrial strength schadenfreude, turn on CNN or MSDNC for awhile and watch the bubbling cauldrons of bile being forced down by people on the verge of dementia. Drink deep their tears and be refreshed.

At Final Briefing, Obama Remarks on Transition, Israel, and Post-Presidency

Watch the ‘Sycophantic’ W.H. Press Corps Shower Obama with Adulation in Final Presser

‘It’s been an honor’
President Obama began his final press conference on a surprising note. Despite “not liking all of the stories you’ve filed,” he told the gathered White House press corps that it’s your duty to ask “tough questions” and not be “sycophants.”

Too bad reporters were apparently not paying attention.

What followed was one softball after another, with rhetorical foot massages sandwiched between.

“Thank you, Mr. President,” each reporter began.

“It’s been an honor,” said another, before literally making the “call me” expression while pointing at her cellphone.

[CtH: GAG ME!!]

A reporter for The Blade, Chris Johnson, used his opportunity to ask the president a question to instead list a series of LGBT “accomplishments” Obama enjoyed during his tenure — before setting the president up to attack Trump.

Obama uses his final press conference to issue extraordinary warning to Trump that he will step in if he ’rounds up’ children for deportation, hits voting rights or ‘silences dissent’passing-the-torch
In his final press conference, Obama brought up contentions issues for the U.S. citizenry, and pointedly told Trump he would speak up if his successor strayed far from current policy on rights issues.

He mentioned ‘systematic discrimination’ and efforts to ‘punish’ immigrants who came here as children.

He praised the press for making ‘this place work better’ in another signal to Trump, who has attacked networks and news outlets.

Invokes Jim Crow efforts to ‘restrict the franchise’ and prioritizes voting rights amid looming fight with the GOP over voter ID laws.

[CtH: Ignores HISTORICAL FACT that DEMOCRATS were responsible for Jim Crow laws.]

      I’ve often thought that the definitions used to determine the cessation of human life should be applied to determine the beginning of human life.

    A leading voice for the nation’s police officers who has bluntly challenged President Obama for his lack of support for police, issued a truly blunt assessment of how police felt about Obama leaving 0ffice, snapping, “No one is sorry to see this guy go.”

    Speaking to The Blaze, William J. Johnson, executive director of the National Association of Police Organizations, said Johnson said Obama’s public statements have only offered “lip service” to the idea that targeting police officers is wrong, while he has demonstrated repeated support for groups that blame police for incidents involving minorities.

    Oh my goodness. The arrogance, the self-assurance, the very idea of Obama “stepping in” if Trump does something Obama doesn’t like. I can’t believe The Error is almost over. But is it? He wants us to wonder about that, doesn’t he.

    Am I reading this right? “This wall in West Wing used to have Obama photos until earlier today.” As in … all those frames were filled with pictures of Obama? Truly, the man was and is a FLAMING NARCISSIST.

      I do remember seeing photos of the White House way back in the early days of the Obama mistake that had photos of himself all over the place. There was discussion about it somewhere. Maybe Hillbuzz. Maybe you even did a graphic of it at one time, Chrissy!

    I remember Obama singing, “I’m so in love with you.” (I always suspected he meant himself.)

    Trump sings “God Bless the USA”! Booyah! I also loved it when he said the pissy celebrities “boycotting” the inauguration hadn’t been invited. “I don’t want celebrities. I want the people.”
