Monday Evening Thread: The White House Press Corp Is So Dumb

Here is the full clip of the press conference earlier today with President Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron.

President Obama must have the patience of Job.

    THIS IS CRIMINALLY WRONG! This mofo won’t use emergency funds so these kids can go to SCHOOL!

    Snyder urged to tap rainy day fund to reopen Buena Vista schools
    By Jennifer Chambers and Chad Livengood
    The Detroit News

    Buena Vista Township — A top state lawmaker is calling on Gov. Rick Snyder to tap into the state’s rainy day fund to reopen the Buena Vista Schools in Saginaw County, where officials canceled classes this week because the district has run out of money.

    Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday called on the governor to provide emergency funding to the district so officials can educate the 400 students in grades K-12.

    The district has not held school since Friday, citing a financial emergency that has left the district unable to pay its employees.

    “Michigan’s Constitution guarantees each and every child in Michigan the right to a free education, yet today we watch as the doors to the Buena Vista Township Schools remain closed while the kids in that community are forced to stay at home,” said Whitmer.

    Snyder said Thursday he hopes to quickly resolve the financial crisis that caused the smallSaginaw County system to lay off employees andclose its doors. But the rainy day fund won’t be used to bailout Buena Vista schools, Snyder said, because “that’s not what the rainy day fund is really intended for.”

      LMAO! Oh lord I remember when Brady told Maher he was gonna beat that ass lol. Brady told Maher all about himself without so much as talking like a thug. See if Maher knew anything about black people Maher would know not to question a black man’s manhood and blackness. Brady spoke soo much truth good for him. Also the shade about Maher’s black girlfriends was priceless. Maher has to go for those type of women because no self respecting sister would touch that.

  • qosine

    Ok. Chuck Todd says the president is “defiant,” and Matthews and Fineman think the president ought to go out there “like President Reagan when he fired all the traffic controllers, showing the Soviet Union that the US had a leader.”

    But this seems to boil down to draft revisions, which, if people
    read the Cuban Missile Crisis transcripts on the Yale Avalon
    site, they’d see the SAME EXACT concerns about what to
    say to the Soviets, the American public, the media, the
    Ambassadors as they were working with on ground evidence
    in Cuba.

    • Aquagranny911

      Here’s a thing that really disturbs me. Our estupido Congress in conjunction with our media cannot be trusted with classified info. Some have no problems blabbing anything they know to the entire world.

      Benghazi was an intelligence outpost with a diplomatic cover. Those guys all knew the risks especially since budget cuts reduced security. We don’t know & probably will never know where things got so far out of hand. We have to protect our people & our local assets. This situation was very volatile & very sensitive. There may have been absolutely nothing we could have done to prevent what happened.

      Issa & co don’t give a flying roasted fig about any of this. They just want to hurt the Prez & by extension Hillary thus the game with semantics by Issa.

      • qosine

        This is what drives me crazy. Issa & co don’t care. They don’t care about four fine Americans who died in service of the USA. I watched the service, and HRC and PBO
        were both devastated losing them on their watch. Issa & co don’t give a damn.

        • Aquagranny911

          No they don’t. It’s all political drama & ego pumping for all of them.

      • Aquagranny911

        Well, thank you Disqus! I got a down rate by an ‘incognito’ who won’t tell me why. If you don’t agree with me say so. Let’s talk.

    Lord, if ya notice me posting less, it’s cause I’m am just too through with politics and shit right now.

      I can relate. It is mathematically impossible for me to give less of a #(&% about the various “controversies” everyone is talking & tweeting about. But I get the feeling this storm of “outrage” is coordinated ” and people behind it are trying to push it into something bigger.

      • qosine

        Maybe they’re mad because they can’t get a rise out of the president, American people? Cried wolf so many times, no everyone goes “meh.”

  • http://twitter.com/#!/JamilaJP QOakaJP

    So…no one finds it strange that RW media, LW media, and supposedly neutral journalists (AP) all chose today to try to storm the Obama admin’s gates with accusations of lying, cover ups, and abuse of power? What’s REALLY going on behind the scenes? Possibly something that would be detrimental to the MSM and its ties to the government, if revealed? Or is it simply a precursor to an already planned summer scandal, for ratings? Even without watching cable news or following most of the blogs, I’m keeping my eyes peeled. Because, as I just posted on twitter,:

    • qosine

      Good question. What do they all have in common? What are they afraid of losing?

      • Aquagranny911

        A “Deep Throat” feeding them classified & sensitive info?

        • qosine

          But what do they have? The c4s have taken off like gangbusters. They are a real problem. I wonder how many orgs were looked at just as closely as the Tea Party types claim.

          • Aquagranny911

            I don’t know but if DOJ keeps looking at those AP phone calls they maybe could find someone in a sensitive position selling info to someone in Congess who then feeds the press.

            IMO, I don’t see that the IRS really did anything wrong & they shouldn’t have apologized for just doing their job. The examined over 300 of those apps & only asked about 75 for more info.

            Maybe I’m wrong, which I have been often but I think this will backfire on the Repubs badly. If they would really think, they would realize that their activities since Citizens United really does not bear much scrutiny.

          • qosine

            I wonder how may c4s are tied into the media? You know, like those “investigative journalism” orgs, or the centers housed inside prestigious universities, or ones like Pro-Publica tied in with NPR.

            I just think there’s a lot of money sloshing around these c4s presumably for “social welfare’ but a great seemingly do-gooder way to get paid as board members with funding from the big foundations.

          • Aquagranny911

            NAILED IT! My thoughts exactly. I’m really picky about who I donate money to because I want it to go where it’s actually supposed to go.

            For many of these groups the only “social welfare” is their own.

    Either Howard Fineman has a reading comprehension problem or he’s blatantly spreading lies. The DOJ got a subpoena for phone records. They did not wiretap the AP!

    David Simas ‏@Simas4411 May
    Worth a RT. Obamacare beginning to work the way it was intended. Insurers lowering rates because of competition. http://www.oregonlive.com/health/index.ssf/2013/05/two_oregon_insurers_reconsider.html

    Two Oregon insurers rethink 2014 premiums as state posts first-ever rate comparison

    This is what competition looks like: One health insurer wants to charge $169 a month next year to cover a 40-year-old Portland-area non-smoker. Another wants $422 a month for the same standard plan.

    The new health insurance marketplace envisioned by federal health reforms doesn’t formally kick in until fall. But it already is taking shape – and consumers for the first time can compare, premium by premium, identical plans by different insurers.

    Soon they’ll be able to compare benefit-by-benefit as well.

    On Thursday, a comparison of proposed 2014 health premiums became public online, causing two insurers to request do-overs to lower their rates even before the state determines whether they’re justified.

          I caught end where she cut off Chris and named PBO/Dem House accomplishments.

          Mind wandering last night over Malcolm’s grandson being killed juxtaposed with Assata Shakur being put on Terrorism list for allegedly killing police.

          Tonight Gay Marriage passed here while a respected Black Preacher who’s Church I’ve attended went there. He said it’s anti-biblical. There I part ways with him re: using bible to justify shit today. But I don’t disagree (Hey GN) about Gay Marriage jumping in front of Money for schools, Black matriculation, school to prison pipeline etc.

          Just taking it all in. Thanks for message. Had me smiling today.

          • Aquagranny911

            They persecuted Assata Shakur. That was a bad bad time to be any activist. I think they were glad when she escaped & ‘disappeared.’

            There’s some kind of agenda going on here in this. I haven’t figured out what it is yet but I’m sure someone will try to use it to hurt PBO.

            I’m glad you are feeling better. We all get overwhelmed time to time. I’m glad I helped you smile. I forgot to tell you that I saw your sweet Mother’s Day message. That had me smiling.

    Nancy Pelosi was just on Chris Hayes’ show (I know, I know, but I had to see her)

    Here are some things she said: GOOD STUFF!

    Re: c4s, Citizens United, campaign funding
    1. Disclose donors
    2. Amendment to the Consitution to overturn Citizens United
    3. Scrutiny placed on c4s on all sides

    Re: Fundraising by candidates, incumbents
    “Are you willing to become a telemarketer for 24 hours a day . . .” Senator Chris Murphy quote

    Pelosi’s approach to raising money:
    1. Present a progressive vision
    2. Use good judgement
    3. Make a plan
    4. Get that done
    SO
    Take it (CU) down. Empower small donors

    Re: John Boehner as Speaker of the House

    1. If Speaker Boehner were a woman, he would be called the weakest speaker in history. They accomplished nothing without our help.

    2. We get criticized for accomplishing things; they don’t get criticized for not accomplishing things.

    Re: GOP House approach

    1, The GOP House is greatly influenced, if not dominated by anti-government ideologues

    2. They don’t believe in public-private concept; they want to take out the public.

    3. George Washington, in his final address, warned against factions at war with their own government.

    4. They don’t believe in a public role for medicare, clean water, job creation, schools/education, health care, so they can walk away with a clear conscience.

    5. The actions taken by PBO and the Senate; ARRA including the ACA, is bending the cost of healthcare down, which is alot of the reason the deficit is coming down

    Police, teachers, firefighters are consumers, too. So when you cut the public role (cut gov positions), you do nothing but hurt the deficit.

    The best way to bring down the deficit is to invest in education of all our American kids (pre-school, K, elementary, jr high, high school, community colleges, 4 year, grad)

      • Aquagranny911

        They ARE scared!!! I wonder what investigations & evidence he has in the works?

    • GOVCHRIS1988

      Here
      we go with the bipartisan scandalfishing of President Obama’s second
      term. We have the maniacal right wing, defeated twice in recent
      Presidential elections trying to throw everything that sticks from
      trying to impeach him for using the wrong semantics to a Bush appointed
      IRS Commissioner resigning due to revelations of IRS looking into tea
      party groups, never mind that this happened with Liberal groups, to the
      media accusing the White House of illegally wiretapping them without
      evidence.

      This of course brings out our fairweather friends on the left who
      instead question why these supposed “scandals” are coming through our
      media like this in rapid succession, similar to the ones that appeared
      during the Clinton years, indirectly concede the suspicions on the right
      and then chastise true supporters saying this is why we shouldn’t be
      emotionally attached to the President and that we should be devoted to
      the opinions of people like Glenn Greenwald and Emptywheel who while
      they may make good points once in a blue moon, generally end up coming
      to the wrong conclusions more often than not or just throw up a torrent
      of outrage with no solutions whatsoever in the case of Greenwald. These
      same folks, who want me to trust the GOP and the media, the same
      institutions of power who told me that there were WMD’s in Iraq, that
      Barack Obama wouldn’t win re-election because of the lackluster 1st
      debate, that ACA would be overturned by the Supreme Court, that the
      president is aloof and distant because he doesn’t do asskissing house
      parties for the media and the Washington elite. I could go on and on and
      on.

      But what do I know, I’m just an overly emotionally invested Obot worshiper.

      I am waiting to see if the Congressional Black Caucus will have Eric Holder’s back? I am also waiting to see if the NAACP, The Urban League, the Black Press will come out in defense of Eric Holder and the President! Finally, I want to know where the DNC, the DCCC, DSCC stand on this fake outrage! I am so sick and tired of the so called mainstream media roughing up President Obama without any pushback from the supposedly prominent African Americans and the Democratic party that count on us as the most loyal supporters. Enough is enough!

      Wow; in the heat of self-reinforcing pile-on, the clique has gone full-psycho. They really are ridiculous; we weren’t just saying that for shits and giggles in 2010 and 2012; they really are DUMB in their substitution of sensationalist declarations for reason, logic, and analysis. Stupid hacks.

      • nathkatun7

        Finally the Truth came out plainly today! The so called mainstream media are determined to aid and abet the GOP in destroying President Obama. This is no longer a secret. Our task as supporters of the President is to make sure we push hard against them. We must tweet, e-mail, fax, phone their corporate benefactors. If those tactics fail we must launch co-ordinated boycotts of all the media that are out to destroy President Obama. If all of us who support the President stay United we can bring enough force to counter the unethical media people masquerading as journalists.

          You know, GreenLady, Whitney Houston is one of the very few performance artists (’cause she was) who gives me chills and makes me cry most every time I hear her sing.

          I love this song, the one from The Bodyguard, and Her Star Spangled Banner is the most beautiful version I’ve ever heard – with her hands fluttering in a beautiful synch with her pure voice.

          I really miss her. I just wish, wish she could have gotten clean and sober. Too soon.

          Just look at her beautiful face and hair – her JOYOUS voice. (sigh)

    — -Marco Rubio Humiliates Himself By Demanding That the Non-Existent IRS Commissioner Resign – – –
    — –In a letter toTreasury Sec. Jack Lew, Sen. Rubio (R-FL) wrote, “Furthermore, it is clear the IRS cannot operate with even a shred of the American people’s confidence under the current leadership. Therefore, I strongly urge that you and President Obama demand the IRS Commissioner’s resignation, effectively (sic) immediately. No government agency that has behaved in such a manner can possibly instill any faith and respect from the American public.”

    First of all, Rubio’s letter has a big typo in it. I think he meant effective immediately, not effectively immediately. Things get even worse for Marco, when you realize that he just asked for the resignation of someone who doesn’t really exist. -That’s right, Rubio is so busy plotting his 2016 presidential campaign that he never bothered to check to see if there actually was an IRS commissioner.
    It turns out that the previous IRS commissioner was appointed by Bush, and he resigned last November.

    Wait a minute, the IRS scandal that the Republican Party is blaming Obama for happened while a Bush appointee was in charge. This really does keep getting worse for Rubio.
    It is impossible to see Sen. Big Gulp as serious presidential material when he and his staff are so sloppy.

    Her 38-year-old groom looked smart in a grey suit with his waist-length dreadlocks on display as he waited for Boehner to walk Lindsay down the aisle at Sundy House in Delray Beach on Friday.

    The couple said their vows with the House Speaker looking proudly on – despite the fact Dominic had previously arrested for possessing marijuana.

    – – -Pew: Wide Majority Tuned Out Last Week’s Benghazi Hearing
    – – -Congressional Republicans promised explosive revelations in last week’s hearing on the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya, but the vast majority of the public wasn’t paying attention.

    The latest findings from Pew Research Centerreleased on Monday found that only 44 percent of Americans were following the hearing “very” or “fairly” closely. By contrast, 56 percent said they followed the hearing either “not too closely” or “not at all.” Those numbers are largely unchanged from Pew’s findings on the question in January, when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified on Benghazi. In October, a month removed from the attack, Pew found that 61 percent of Americans were following the story at least fairly closely.

    Police, who earlier said three suspects and two weapons were involved, say it’s too early to tell whether Scott was the only shooter. The shooting injured 19 people, three of whom are still in critical
