President Obama appears to be skipping the traditional post-election press conference today.

What’s his excuse for avoiding the press this time? He’s totally exhausted, guys! Campaigning is hard!

That excuse was offered last night as well. Aww, call the waahm-bulance. President Obama needs a nap.

Twitter users aren’t buying it.

Bingo! We can’t have that, can we? He managed to avoid all of that so far, right?

Yep. Will the press even ask him about the layoff bomb he’s caused?  Since we are givers, we’ll help them out. Start by talking to these small business owners on Twitter, who are now forced to lay off employees.

    That was play time Obama, now you have 4 years of lying to try and figure out how to blame someone besides yourself just keep your twitter open the Governmental Media we now have is there for you…………..

      “GOP obstructionism in the House” will be the reason for everything that goes wrong. On the off-hand chance anything goes right, naturally The Won gets to claim credit for it.

    • EEKman

      YOU LOST

      • Maria Seeger

        No actually, you lost. You’re just too stupid to realize it. Just wait til the money runs out…there goes your gravy train.

        • EEKman

          Republican presidents add 2.5 times to the national debt than democrats do. Obama is the smallest government spender since eisenhower. Wake….up….please….

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            So Obama added an additional $6 trillion, which is a 60% increase… you didn’t do well in math in school, did you?

            in what universe did Obama become the smallest government spender since Eisenhower? When Bush left office the deficit was hovering around 4.7 trill….After Obama’s first term It’s now well over 16 Trillion… That’s more than ALL 43 presidents before him put together. But keep drinking the coolaide…. it seems to be working for you.. at least till the middle class is eliminated and the money for handouts runs out.

          • Kate

            The liberals claim Obama is the lowest spender by attributing his entire first year of spending to Bush.

            That idiot that you are championing has added more debt than any other president. What rock have you been living under? Perhaps you should think about going back under it until you evolve enough to be considered human.

        I can’t wait until your spouse/child/or elderly parent is denied a life saving treatment under Obamacare. Please give me a call so I can laugh in your face and help you dig the grave. You wanted all this: you got it. Now enjoy the “details” you’re too stupid to understand.

        • EEKman

          Youre still delusional. There are no death panels, put on your tinfoil hat. OBAMACARE WAS DESIGNED BY CONSERVATIVE THINK TANKS. Its the conservative version of universal health care. BE HAPPY.

          • Liberal Hater

            There are death panels asshole. You have trouble with facts I see. Please call me when your loved one is denied so I can laugh in your fucking face.

          • EEKman

            No. there. is. not.

            The law prohibits the board from rationing care, cutting benefits, changing eligibility or raising Medicare premiums. So the group cannot suggest that everyone over age 75 is no longer eligible for a knee replacement. It may, however, recommend that your surgeon be paid 5 percent less for performing the operation.

  • Kimberly Schutzenhofer

    Hmmmm, let me see where did we leave off the dodge? Benghazi? What could it be now? Market falling 300 plus? Boeing conveniently waiting less than 24 hours after the election to announce their major layoffs? Perhaps why would 60 mins conceal a portion of their interview that proves you to be the liar you are? Hmmmm, seems to be the press has SO much to choose from. I don’t know why the wussy in chief is hiding tho – not ONE of them has the kahunas to do the job they’re supposed to do. Today’s press question – so are you exhausted from all the travelling and partying with all the celebrities or was it you spent so much time in the northeast helping out the cause there? Hmmm didn’t I see a photo today of the FEMA office closed due to weather? Irony.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Market closed 120 down from yesterday, so a net of 430 points down since election day.

    • HannahJK

      Exactly. Until Reid works out the strategy for his next manufactured outrage, Obama can rest and the press will have to attack republicans without their imput. Of course Media Matters never runs out of “matter” to feed them.

      • Elaine

        After 3 years of campaigning, of course he’s tired. BUT it just might have something to do with NOT wanting to answer questions still? When was the last time anyone was even ALLOWED to shout a question at the dictator? A LONG TIME AGO!

  • Steven Tibbs

    he is basically lazy (i know, i know, sounds racist) and just does what he wants to do.

    • rinodino

      Yep does sound racist but that’s the norm for you guys that’s why you guys will keep losing national elections so keep at it!

      • Maria Seeger

        What, the bit about Obama being basically lazy sounds racst? Excuse me, but didn’t The Won himself say something like that in a recent interview with one of those fluff mags or maybe it was on Entertainment Tonight? I could have sworn he admitted to being lazy sometimes. It’s not racist if *he* admits it, ya know.

      • Liberal Hater

        I’m sure Steven was being tongue-in-cheek since intellectual lightweights such as yourself find everything racist. Here’s one for you: You are a dumbfuck. Now scream: RAAAAACCCCCIIIIISTTTTTTTTTTTTT!

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Really… lazy = racism. You sir, are still an idiot.

      • Teresa Davis McCormick

        Remember all those African Americans who voted for Obama because he is half black?? Well I guess they can go on the racist list. I’ve seen more racism from the left. I am also getting tired of being called a racist. It’s slanderous. Prove that I make my decisions based on someones race. You can’t. But you can prove that some people voted for Obama based on race. (that’s racism) they are shouting it everywhere. Where is the outrage?

        well here is the definition of racism.
        1
        : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
        2
        : racial prejudice or discrimination
        — rac·ist noun or adjective

      An exhausting campaign, a terrible natural disaster, grueling 7 day schedule and youre criticising him for taking a well deserved rest.

      YOU LOST. BADLY.
      You snatched total defeat from the jaws of total victory.

      Your party needs a come to Jesus moment, to borrow a phrase.

      • Liberal Hater

        Actually, I’m criticizing him for being a clusterfuck of a failure, and for having idiots like yourself dumb enough to vote for him. But you are correct, I suppose he’s entitled to a rest, just as you losers are entitled to everything you didn’t earn. Touche.

        • EEKman

          Your taxes did not go up.
          The deficit is shrinking.
          The states that take more federal funds than they put in are Republican states.
          If you want to play that way, YOU are living off of the liberal cities.
          YOU LOST.
          You won 0 out of 9 senate seats despite heavy plutocrat funding.

          0 out of 9
          You got routed. Time to accept actual reality.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Deficit is shrinking? Where’s your proof?

            You lost, take these 4 years to reflect and pop your protected comforting Fox/rush media bubble. Come back to reality please. The election is over, I don’t need to convince you of anything. You are the ones who need to justify your positions now or go extinct as a party.

            Look it up yourself.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Thanks for assuming I’m a part of any party. Whine a little more how conservatives and people on this site paint “all liberals” the same. Wah, cry more.

            You offered the ‘fact’ that the deficit is shrinking. The burden of proof is upon you. Otherwise, you may want to get a clothespin for those flapping lips of yours… you can at the very least, clean up after yourself. You know, when you take your dog for a walk, and he shits.. kinda like that ‘fact’.

          • EEKman

            I don’t have the burden of anything lol. The election is O-V-E-R. You lost. Stay in your own reality bubble and keep losing elections for all I care. I’m trying to help you.. Yeesh you can lead a horse to water…

          • Liberal Hater

            The deficit is shrinking is hysterical. Next tell us how Obamacare lets you keep your insurance AND won’t add a dime to the debt. It must be awesome to so absolutely fucking clueless….

          • Harley Alderson

            no dummy you lost. the only reason why you “won” is because most of the vote for dummycrats came from big cities. if you look at the electoral map and popular vote map of the usa that displays counties theres a lot more republican wins than democrat. like i siad if it werent for welfare loving cities full of immigrants and other minorities you would have lost so kiss my american arse

          • EEKman

            So if there weren’t any cities or minorities you would have won. Good luck with that strategy in the next election… rofl.

          • Penmar

            No, not 4 yrs, Democrats will be defending 20 seats in 2014, compared to just 13 for Republicans.

            Look it up yourself.

          • Penmar

            Actually he is right about the deficit shrinking, but the debt is still growing. For the entire 2012 fiscal year, the U.S. spent about $3.5 trillion, a decrease of 2% from 2011. Overall revenues were up 6%, getting a boost from a 16% increase in corporate taxes.

          • Kate

            Actually, it’s the liberal cities who live off of the producers in rural areas.

            Assume a natural disaster strikes a large region of the country. Rural areas would survive- they know how to take care of themselves. People in the cities freak out if their smartphones are down for 5 minutes.

            Trust me, I live in Cook County IL, the liberal stronghold- we would be SCREWED without farmers, producers, etc.

          • EEKman

            Im just trying to get us all to agree on the same facts. if you say the deficit has risen when it actually has gone down how can we discuss solutions when we can’t even agree on the problems?

          • SwTk

            Deficit and Debt are two very different things my freind. One is increasing the size of the pool and the other is taking out some of the water. It kind of depends on what you want. I’m of the mind; I like the water extraction principle. You, on the other hand, just want to enlarge the pool. One makes more sense in the long run – one does not. Because it will always rain and it’s more important to be able to extract than to enlarge. Simple economic physics, if you will.

          • EEKman

            Conventional political wisdom would agree with you, but President Obama has been the smallest government spender since Eisenhower. Also, here is what he said just today. Do you agree with the direction?

            Taxes did not go up YET for most of us, yet being the operative word, the debt is rising, 16 trillion and counting, GDP is down, layoffs abound and more to come. President Obama’s native state has benefited the most since 2007, with federal funds to Hawaii more than doubling since 2009. And no, we weren’t routed, if we had been libs would also have control of the House and you don’t.

          • GwenB

            OMG clueless. Just because a majority of stupid people voted to elect more stupid people doesn’t mean you won. The massive layoffs and the stock market crash after your doofus got re-elected is just the start. You’re losing as we speak.

My vote didn’t “lose”, it’s still very much in play; Obama still knows that almost 50% of the country does not recognize him as president. Doesn’t sound like winning to me, bro.

        Wrong, it is and was a scandal, for months our people in Libya were screaming for more security and then they screamed for 7 hours while some of them were told to “Stand Down” and not help the others that needed help. For seven hours they watched in real time as a drone video taped what was happening and still they refused to send help. That is not only a scandal but complete dereliction of duty.

    6 time world series winner, hall of fame MLB great Reggie Jackson made a statement that for bipartisanship Pres Obama should make Mitt Romney his vice president. It wouldn’t bother me at all. Do you agree with Mr Jackson?

    I would be exhausted too if I had just finished putting it to an entire nation’s a$$ for four years.

    Psst… MSM? He’s really not that into you. Remember all those interviews he gave before the election to anyone and everyone BUT you guys?
    LOL – what tools they are. Used hard and put away dirty. We all know what happens to those kinds of tools…

    The “press corp” is just bitching for show. They already got their “news” scripts from Media Matters this morning.

    What made anyone think he would meet the press today, nothing new in that piece of news. He never meets with the press unless it is an entertainment rag.

    But too tired to play a pick-up game of hoops? Of course not.

  • ProfShadow

    I’m thinking that there would be some awkward questions.
    I’m guessing that we’ll not have an open “presser” for the next four years.

    He no longer has to answer to the American people and the press has ensured he never has to answer to them, so why would he hold any press conference? Look for more recorded speeches and addresses from him. No one shall question Dear Leader.

    Barack Hussein Obama: “I ain’t got time to lead”.

  • Donna W

    Ambassador Stevens family is real tired, along with the families of his fallen security team. Agent Brian Terry’s family is real tired from fighting for years to get the truth…Obama’s revenge will make us all tired.
    What’s after his nap? Golf?

  • mlwalker

    He couldn’t find anyone to write what he was going to say at the press conference (since he can’t speak on his own without notes or a teleprompter), so he decided not to hold a press conference.

  • Socal71
