Unexpectedly! Obama to hold final press conference of term; Straw men to attend?



Unexpectedly! President Obama is gracing members of the media with his presence today, evidently.





Double squee! Of course, there is a reason for his deigning to meet with the press.




Blame-gaming and finger-pointing! Not unexpectedly.

Twitter users aren’t as excited as members of the media are.





Some think it is very likely that some good, old straw men will attend.




Heh. Others snark over potential questions.




The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein ties in the Golden Globes.


Man, as Twitchy reported last night, insight really is needed there.

And, no need to watch now. This helpful Twitter user has already summed it all up for you.


Bingo! We at Twitchy are givers, however, and will bring you all the juicy details from the press conference later today.

    Obama is the King of the King of Kings.

    We love him more than we love God!

    I hope he doesn’t take any questions from Fox News – the republican communication wing of the party.

      All your statement is missing is Uber Alles after the President’s name, then it would be complete

        Mark is a sort of Stephen Colbert, as far as I can tell. He’s a satirist, although there are sufficient liberal loonies out there who sound much like him that it’s hard to tell the difference.

    • NRPax

      I’ve missed you, Mark. Still need to work on your subtlety a bit but it’s good to see you again.

    • Joe W.

      You get a day pass from the asylum, Mark??

      • Rabid

        He must have.

    will all the reporters stick to the script this time?

    • carla5731

      I think they’re there just to act as stenographers. I’m not sure they will be permitted to speak as that implies Americans might have more than one opinion on national policy.

    • Shawn Smith

      Absolutely. They’ve all gotten the memo that daring to ask Obama a question is racist. (Exceptions can be made for questions such as, “How did you get to be this awesome?” and “Can I have your baby?”.)

    Golf course closed today ??

    Has the press sent him all of their questions?

  • Peyton

    Hence the debt ceiling fight begins and the GOP is already behind the ball.

  • Joe W.

    I would rather watch two pissants fight.

    Final press conference before Biden has to assume presidency due to Obama’s impeachement.
