Obama walks out – leaves Bill Clinton at podium

Obama met with Bill Clinton this afternoon for around 90 minutes and then had a press conference with him to sure up the Lefty base around this tax deal. But then something weird happened and Obama decided to leave and left Bill Clinton at the podium all by himself.



What in the world was he thinking? This does not look good.

Seriously, to use his wife as an excuse to get out of a press conference? Oh man. What a joke.

No matter WHO called the press conference, that looked really lame for the (P)resident to walk off. NO CLASS whatsoever!

Fragmentary report aimed to over-exaggerate the fact that he already stated he would not be staying for Bill’s press conference. It was Bill Clinton who wanted the press conference.
Don’t be so gullible to buy into the Obama bashing.

I read somebody referring to the Democras in congress as taking part in a “clown car demolition derby.” That goes for the whole party. Oh, they’ll recover, and these things are cyclical, but power usually changes hands when one side goes too far. I think we’re seeing that happen right in front of our eyes. May you live in interesting times.

Good for him. You have to juggle a lot of people when you’re president. You shouldn’t forget your wife. So I applaud him.

The whole thing was just bizarre. It is so frightening that this man is our president, I truly fear the day when we need a leader for a crisis i.e. terrorist attack. Hopefully he would turn to George Bush, bring him to the microphone, and say “here George, handle this for me”.

The guy acts like being president is a part time job. You do not leave your own press conference as president of the USA, who runs his schedule? A party is more important than addressing the American people?

And I am absolutely tired of his faux smile that he constantly flashes, it disgusts me. He has got it down perfect.

Allahpundit has a funny post up quoting a NYT piece that describes Barry and Bill wondering around trying to get someone to open the locked door to the press briefing room.

Too funny. Not only does this guy have no idea how to act as Leader of The Free World, he has no clue how to behave in a corporate office environment. A Junior Vice President in charge or Emerging New Markets (I.E the CEO’s nephew) knows to NEVER do anything yourself that can get an underling to do for you.

Interesting body language on Obamas part. crossed arms = defensive; smirk when the question of ” what advice did Clinton give you” was asked = dismisive and arrogant.
And then using his wife as as excuse to flee from further unwanted questions?
Boys use excuses. Lying men use their wives.

He he….I think it’s Clinton setting Obama up. The two do NOT get along; no way BO would have called Clinton in except as the result of some heavy pushing by his party. So he gave in, figuring Clinton would make a couple of remarks and then return the lecturn. Clinton used this opportunity to give Obama a slap, like “Watch how the big boys do it.” Obama obviously wanted the stage back, but Clinton ignored him and rattled on. Instead of taking charge of the situation, BO split. Impotent, passive-agressive fury on Obama’s part, smart politics and payback on Clinton’s.

It just looked like 2 men who didn’t feel comfortable in that situation. Obama decided to let Clinton do the press conference. Yes, it looked really bad on Obamas’ reputation, but if you look at it this way, he was actually being the “bigger Man” and leaving the room before his temper flared on National TV. I couldn’t have that strenght. DON’T GET ME WRONG….Obama has done NOTHING while in office, except for dress his wife in the most expensive jewels and dresses. His girls are also royalty. I see alot of vacations that they went on when really the President should be at the White house trying to send our soilders home. Honestly, enough is enough. You start to ask yourself is this really worth loosing my life and family when deployed and dying to only make about half of what I make in the army? PROUD ARMY WIFE… Read more »

maybe you should post the ENTIRE video. Because Obama already stated at the beginning of this press conference, that he had to leave and that Bill Clinton wanted to make a few comments on the subject, so everyone was well aware.

yes he did don but for those who are getting used to the tactics of using someone they like to let him extrapolate on his platforms-and there were a few with billy-boys opinions they seem to take as gospel when those within rebel. heck(pardon the expletive) they even have used carter and andy griffith to push their agenda. spackling a crack when there is a big hole in the wall not repaired is futile.it looks good until someone bumps into it. then you got a bigger problem.

That’s too conspicuous for it not to have been planned with an intentional reaction- While conservative talking heads will talk about this Monday and Tuesday- what else is happening next week that he needs the distraction? Is he just trying to create a dogpile on himself to sell his victim state on the American people and that mean old Republicans will not accept any compromise?

Any one give the issue some thought? Interested what ideas others may have on why a POTUS would ever ever ever do something so stupid.

I caught the press conference on Cavuto at 4:30 before Beck.

I COULD NOT BELIVE IT.

Barry is so lame he had to get his “DADDY” to come and tell all the rest of the kids on the play ground to STOP kicking sand at little barry!

He’s trying SO hard!

And if you don’t play nice with barry all those MEAN OLD NASTY republican will come in here and beat you all up AND take you lunch money to boot.

I did’t catch the end of it until now. Gotta run, the wife’s got dinner,.. and you KNOW HOW “SHE” IS.

Poor little barry, he is so lame he makes carter look competent.

Unbelievable.
