Barack Obama in his first press conference since being elected President of the United States goes and insults Ronald Reagan and his widow Nancy Reagan. Yes he apologized and the liberal left have said that because he realized it and apologized that everything is fine now…
Well the real problem is man is to be President and this is the stupid shit that comes out of his mouth. What is he going to say when he is speaking about other world leaders, American leaders etc…
Why is the liberal left not as upset as when Sarah Palin makes a slip up or George Bush… Had George Bush said this, the front page of every major newspaper would headline about how stupid Bush is or how uneducated he is… Where are those people now… Oh it is Obama saying…
I can only imaging his conversation with Nancy… <sarcasm>Nancy I am sorry for the seance comment, please can we forget this like Ronnie would…</sarcasm>
This is our wonderful new President … More Change You Can Believe In!
Earlier today at his press conference, President-elect Barack Obama was asked by Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times if he’d spoken to “any living ex-presidents” to get ready for his new job.
“In terms of speaking to former presidents, I have spoken to all of them that are living,” Obama said. “Obviously, President Clinton.”
Some in the audience of reporters started laughing at the fact that Mr. Obama had felt the need to say he spoken to the presidents “that are living.”
“I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any séances,” Obama explained — before adding that he’d “reread some of Lincoln’s writings,” and, “President Carter, President Bush Senior, as well as the current president have all been very gracious and offered to provide any help that they can in this transition process.”
Obama obviously felt that he needed to say sorry to the widowed former first lady, who’s recuperating from breaking her pelvis.
“President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan today to apologize for the careless and off-handed remark he made during today’s press conference,” said Obama transition team spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter. “The president-elect expressed his admiration and affection for Mrs. Reagan that so many Americans share and they had a warm conversation.”
Incidentally, Nancy Reagan never held a séance at the White House, though she was reported to have consulted with an astrologer when planning her husband’s schedules. It wasMary Todd Lincoln who regularly held séances.
When she was first lady, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., worked with spiritual adviser Jean Houston to access an “Eleanor Roosevelt-like consciousness” from within her own psyche.Clinton wrote in a column that Roosevelt “usually responds by telling me to buck up, or at least to grow skin as thick as a rhinoceros.”
