President Obama floated down from his ivory tower this afternoon to explain himself to the American people. The White House press corps was only too happy to help:

Close … Jay Carney actually gave POTUS a handy-dandy list to keep track of all the sycophants. No, really:

Conspicuously absent from the list: Reporters who have demonstrated a willingness to ask difficult questions.

A trio of Fox News journalists took notice:

Amen. What the American people witnessed today from the press corps wasn’t journalism; it was bootlicking.

  • oleg zeltser

    Stop being upset with the White House press corps. It’s hard to ask the tough questions while on your knees begging for any scrap that Obama is willing to discard your way

    • conservativechick

      Even when you do get a question in, they try to humiliate you if they don’t like it.

      Good points.

      They remind me of desperate sycophants who know their time is nearly at hand, are trying to deny their inevitable fate, and do not know what to do other than beg from their ideological leader.

      Listen, your all just too stupid to understand that your too stupid to understand, they are just trying to help you do the things you can’t do for yourself. Like buying health insurance.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™ ✓ certified

        Talk about stupid! You spelled ‘you’re’ wrong. Twice, no less. Instead of them buying your insurance for you, are they telling you how to spell? If so, you can take that insurance and shove it…. yeah.

    WH access is key requirement to MSM career advancement — these folks are simply looking out for themselves….great economy in DC Metro — why blow it…

    • Paul

      You’re right, the economy there is really humming, which really highlights how disgusting this has become. Virtually every penny bouncing around DC, allowing everybody there to live like a king, has been confiscated under threat of force from the people who produced it. Revolutions and civil wars have been started for shyte like this. The proggies had better watch themselves… one day they will reap what they are sowing.

    • Shawn Smith

      “Why blow it”

      I don’t know, a little something called ethics, integrity, a commitment to the truth, perhaps?

      What am I saying? These [bleeps] need to look those words up in a dictionary & then still need someone to carefully and slowly explain them.

      • freeinaz

        The problem these so-called journalists have is a lot of us do have memories longer than they want to think…remember some of these water carriers for this regime as there will be a price for them to pay sooner or later. Best place to start is to notify the advertisers to the networks these twits work for…no more purchases from your company due to these morons who are out to destroy the republic. Stick together people…we really do surround them.

    Oh for a reporter with the cajones to say “A pre-approved list? Then why am I wasting my time here?” and walk out in front of him.

    • RblDiver

      Or, alternatively, shout out “Why are you now putting Barry-cades in your press talks too?”

      • Marcy Cook

        Kudos for these two posts. If only the press had the balls to do it things might change.

  • rivers

    Pretty simple. Ben Carson made the President unhappy, he got an audit for the first time in his life. These sackless unprincipled hacks are looking out for themselves.

    And by the way, even when you come out of an audit clean, it still costs you lots of money. A wealthy friend and Republican donor was about $15,000.00 out of pocket because of his audit when the story of the IRS targeting conservatives broke. His audit was suddenly and mysteriously halted.

    Look at Letterman. We KNOW he’s a liar and a cheat, how tough is it to keep him towing the line? He doesn’t want his books looked at.

    Sad days. Good men and women are in the minority it seems,

      She’s very conservative. But the black haters are after her because she married a white man who works for Fox. Then they had a blond haired, blue eyed baby, so now they’re saying AWFUL things about her, natch.

    Jay Carney is like a roadie for a rock band. All the Press Corpsemen have to kneel down and blow him for a chance to go back stage and blow Barry Soetero later during the press conference.

    What a disgusting bunch of losers. Too bad we can’t sue these fools for malpractice, they are actively engaged in the destruction of our way of life… fundamentally transformed into a neo-marxist hellhole of mediocrity and government dependency.

    Blog writing is so highly overrated as to real action and performance. Are we simply going to blog while we’re losing our freedoms? Thus far its been Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. The Republican Establishment, an insider organization I have probably contributed well in access of $500,000 up until 2010. Now my money will go to the demise of this constituency. Look around people, this is what the Establishment has done for us the last 20 or so years and McConnell calls us all traitors, McCain the same and we’re putting up with this? They’re done and they know they’re done but before they go get a good look at mediocrity at its finest so we don’t allow this to happen to our party again. The Scott Brown’s, Jeff Flake’s, Kelly Ayotte’s etc., etc., need to find a new party.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    So, to defend the latest media nonsense, you invoke three reporters you accuse of giving Bush a pass and then condemn them for allegedly doing what reporters actually did with Obama today? That’s definitely some true irony, Mikey. It’s also a strong indication that you have no grasp of a logical argument… not that we needed further proof of that.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    To be fair, the media always portrayed themselves as government watchdogs, but they’ve never actually had to face a president that ate dog before.

    I mean, does he think we’re that stupid (obviously) – well I for 1 am not, and I’m sick of the dumb talking points and the bloviated 10 minute answers which are just freaking repeats of the dumb speech! Stalling so he doesn’t have to answer questions. How many did he manage to get through today – was it 3 or 4 and it took forever!!!! I kept waiting for some bright reporter to ask something of substance, well that never happened.

    When the history of this time is written, I hope the staggering treason of the media is fully recorded. But since the history books are written by the progs, we probably will never hear about how they allowed the most ignorant among us to cruise along like nothing is wrong. Right up until they end. I blame the MSM more than O and his band of thieves. They are who they are, it is the MSM that is supposed to keep them as “honest” as politicians ever can be.
