Phooey - They're Calling it for Bennet | Main | Obama: No One Objected To My Leadership Style When I Was Campaigning In Iowa
November 03, 2010

Obama Post Election Press Conference

So far Obama's major nod to getting whooped last night is to speak slower and with a tinge of sorrow in his voice. Beyond that? Nope, not really.

Big Takeaway...Obama rejects notion that his policies were rejected by voters last night. Says his policies are not moving the nation backwards, rejects notion that was message of last night.

He's not going the Clinton way.

It would have been much shorter and much more honest if he just said what he really wants to say, "Let me be clear, I'm still awesome. If you aren't smart enough to get that, it's on you not me."

Quality M.K. Ham snark

Obama at 1:20: "Let's not relitigate the past." Obama at 1:24: "We already had a large deficit, which I inherited."

Running Updates:

10th question...do voters think you are out of touch and will you change your style. "Folks didn't have any questions about my leadership style when I was in Iowa for a year"...Running for office is NOT leadership.

Breaking...Obama seems to want you to know being President is hard.

Suffice it to say, Obama is not the warmest man in the world. Now he's throwing a pity party for himself.

9th question...Slurpie summit gets laugh. Will Obama offer 'reset' button to business community. Sure..I'll say nice things about business. Why not, he's spent two years killing them, doesn't hurt to say something nice about the dead.

He's just going on about how tough it was because of circumstances that he seemed tough on business. He really loves it. BS.

8th question...Slurpeee! Car in the ditch! You kind of got rejected on that, what's your thought? DADT repeal...kind of dead, right?

Obama says DADT repeal is right thing to do if done in orderly fashion. Avoids answer question. Says it might be addressed in Zombie Democrat session better than letting courts decide.

Doubles down on ditch metaphor.

7th question...Since Cap and Trade is dead, what about EPA regulations. Do you feel bad about cutting backroom deals to pass ObamaCare? he says process was mess and that's regrettable. Policy itself was worth it.

On EPA-We'll try legislation again. But EPA may have to act, too early to say how it will work out.


6th question(s)...Where will you compromise on tax cuts? What's it feel like to get you ass kicked? Obama says, 'it feels bad'. Why is it bad...because good Democrats lost. He doesn't get that he should feel bad about foisting unpopular and ineffective policies on the country.

5th question...you said elections have consequences when you won. Now that you've lost, what are you going to compromise on? Obama...Not too much.

4th question...You know that more big spending for jobs is history, right? So what are you going to do? Answer...pretty much the same as what I did before. He's just running down his same old list of projects for like the 5th time. He just doesn't get it...no means no.

3rd question...About that repealing health care thing. Obama says, let's not re-fight the last two years, let's move on to more awesome stuff. Yeah, good luck with that. Shockingly, he just doesn't get it.

Obama says 1099 provision in HCR was designed to raise money to pay for other provisions. You mean like a tax? I thought he said taxes didn't go up?

2nd question...Hey, you're really not taking any responsibility here. Should voters think you "don't get it". Here's where the petulance starts to show. He's basically saying, "aw, it was tough and people don't get how awesome I am". At this point he just sounds like the teacher from Charlie Brown.

He also said they did so much because it was an emergency. Gee, governments never justify power grabs under the guise of an 'emergency' or anything.

1st question...are you going to admit that it was not just the economy but your agenda that led to defeat. Obama's basic answer...hell no. It was just the economy. Good, I prefer it when they are arrogant and stupid. And this answer is just rambling on and on and on.

So far no, "I inherited this". Also, no acknowledgment that what's been done has made things worse or that it was rejected. Says let's not re-fight last two years. Good luck with that.

He says he's looking forward to hear ideas from Republicans. Just like when he said, "I won". Difference this time...he didn't win.

He says answers aren't to be found on bumper sticker. Guy who coined "Yes we can" hit hardest.

Obama says parties need to work together then runs down standard laundry list of Democratic policy priorities. Yeah, not so much next time.

Americans want to know that their kids aren't being "drowned in a sea of debt."-So then why did you run up all that debt then?

He's saying all the nicey, nice things. The anger and petulance will come out in questions when he's challenged.

Original Post
I'm sure the President will be gracious and contrite in defeat. He'll take the historic rebuke by the American people to heart and rethink his destructive politics.

Or you know, not.

What's the over/under on questions he takes and average length of his answers?

I'm guessing 8 questions and 7 minutes per answer.
