Breaking News: Obama to hold press conference at 2 p.m.
« on: October 08, 2013, 12:34:08 PM »
Obama sets press conference for 2 p.m. Tuesday
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN |
10/8/13 11:50 AM EDT

President Obama will make a statement and take questions from the press at 2 p.m. Tuesday, the White House said in updated guidance.

Obama last took questions from the White House press corps in early September, while traveling abroad in Sweden and Russia. His most recent full-scale press conference was on Aug. 9 in the East Room of the White House, just before he left Washington for a vacation on Martha's Vineyard.

With his long-planned trip to Asia this week cancelled because of the government shutdown, Obama is aiming to show that he's keeping up his involvement in resolving the situation, even as he repeats his refusal to negotiate on bills to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling.

Here's what he'll say: 

"I've been willing to negotiate since the beginning but those mean old Republicans won't acquiesce to my demands."

"What about the debt ceiling?"

"There will be no negotiations.  But I'm willing to negotiate.  The Republicans are being obstinate."

There is no reason to call a press conference for the purpose of simply reiterating one's position.

Assuming he has not chosen to abandon any of his obdurate policy stances, Obama may be doing so simply because he has not yet heard the sound of his own voice on TV today.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Yes, there's that, but he also be blue and feel the need for a dose of worship from the WH press corpse to cheer himself up. Their love is constant and uncritical.

That's it!

He will take questions but that doesn't mean he's going to answer any of them!

I'm guessing he's already got the reporters/questions planted.

From carefully selected people with the correct questions, I'm sure. :Obounce:

It will just be more lies, half-truths, nuances, and blaming.  Why watch that, unless your Chris Matthews :lubyou:

How many ways is he going to say he won't negotiate?

Yeah, here's a sample:

Obama media: How is this John Boehner's fault?
Obama media: Just how crazy is the Tea Party?
Obama media: Are Republicans trying to damage the country?

Obama media: All hail our lord and savior!
