I made it through the President’s news conference this morning.That was one hour and ten minutes of my life that was wasted. Not to say that I’ve never wasted an hour and ten minutes before, or even that I’ve never spent an hour and ten minutes being wasted. Just that, this “news conference” wasn’t a news conference, at all. It was a campaign event.
And, as the lapdog media quickly realized their role in the show, their questions became more and more deliberate. Their hero didn’t disappoint. He smashed their softball queries far into the left field cheap seats, and time after time, played the blame game to deflect criticism of his performance with the economy.
As much as the President tries to blame others for his incompetence, the fact that his policies have not done what he said they would do undermines his credibility with the blame game. At least the President didn’t say “pass this bill, now,” so we can be grateful for that anyway.
