Brilliant!… Reporter Mocks Obama at Press Conference, Accuses Him of Scare Tactics (Video)

Obama sure didn’t see this coming.
A reporter today mocked Obama for his debt ceiling scare tactics.
The question came from CNN reporter Jessica Yellin.

This was her first time she asked Obama a question. Possibly her last.
Transcipt from the White House website:

THE PRESIDENT: Jessica Yellin. Congratulations, your first question here.

Question: Thank you, Mr. President.

THE PRESIDENT: No pressure. You’re going to do great. (Laughter.)

Question: Thank you. Your administration has laid out four different dates by which you’ve said that the debt ceiling must be raised or the U.S. would face potential dire consequences. Three of those dates have come and gone and we haven’t faced financial calamity. Some of your critics have argued that these are then scare tactics to force a deal. So why should the American people believe that the August 2nd deadline is the final deadline by which a deal must be raised? And would you also spell out for us what you believe will happen if the debt ceiling is not raised by that date?

    Seriously? I mean I get that the point of this post is that Yellin actually asked an actual question (she’s probably going to be fired for that), but how condescending. I’m surprised BO didn’t call her “Sweetie” (as he’s done to female reporters in the past) and pat her on the head.

    Well… that was the short career as a Whitehouse reporter!

    I know I know!!! If we don’t dig a deeper hole, OLD PEOPLE WILL DIE, and SOLDIERS WON’T GET TREATMENT!!!!!!!!


    Fuxing disgrace. Obama is a clown.

    Hate those totally unpresidential un-American gold damask curtains.

    Dumba$$! It was your Democratic congress under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi that spent the money. What a coward. Hey Mr. President: Man up or Shut up. 2012 can’t get here soon enough.

    He says it is inappropriate for the US Gov’t to be picking and choosing what bills to pay, but that is precisely what they are doing right now.

  • Kate

    Ah….someone breaking ranks from the Democrat pravda. Encouraging though I imagine she will be struck down fast.


    I asked somebody this past weekend if they thought Obama was a fear-mongerer. (As they were claiming conservatives were), and I got the wide-eyed “Nooooo”.

    Hahahaha I will be sending them this

    You must watch the replay on this!!

    This President is a FOOL!!!
    Can it be evident with any greater clarity??

    It is shocking to me that the American People put this IDIOT in the WHITE HOUSE!!!!

    Condescending cox sucker. He says to the reporter….”no pressure, you’re going to do great”.

    She should have told him. “Yes Mr A$$hole, too bad I can’t say the same for you”. Then she should have given the SOUL-LESS mother fuxer the finger and walked out.

    Oh thank you so much your highness for chance of a lifetime to ask you, the one, a question. I hope my lowly question does not offend thee and is worthy of your consideration and awesome intellect. I would offer to blow you if I did not think you are quite gay.

    #4 Wanumba—I have said that since first seeing them ,they look like something from a mosque or an Arabian tent,not american at all,gaudy ,ugly and tasteless. Wonder who picked them.LOL

  • gus

    He’s a fuxing clown, only a full blown (yes ful blown) REEEEETARD couldn’t see through this angry piece of sh!t. He’s smarmy and uncharming. But FLIES do enjoy the wart on his face.

    He gave away his plan in his answer. He’s going to withhold Social Security checks and veterans payments if congress doesn’t give him more money to give to his political cronies.

    Well, that’s indeed the OTHER reason I hate them; they are an in-our-faces open mockery. They AREN’T presidential OR American and were selected exactly to convey that every time we have to watch him, all backdropped in shiny gold. Gold damask is Saudi Royalty throne room decorating.
    He DOES tell us what he is all the time, and the media runs around says, “Oh, no no no it’s NOT really what he said, he MEANS THIS blah blah blah.”

    While I detest the MSM and what it is doing to our country, I applaude this reporter for her fortitude as well as for her well-articulated question.

  • toongoon

    Can I get a show of hands, who would like pitch in and get baracki a bouquet of flowers to show appreciation of how much he is doing for us. He talked to republicans and democrats, and he’s dealing with Libya. The house just keeps playing tiddlywinks or something and won’t just fold to him and surrender our rights.

    I don’t see any hands, I’ll give you more time to think about it.

    What is the thing with him always talking about cars to describe the economy, and more specifically; blinking yellow lights?? Come on. The light is red, dum dum put on the brakes, stop the car and put air in the stupid tires. What hell is so hard about that?

    Alright , I don’t see any hands. Just forget about it!

    #11 Thank you for that.

    I am reminded of a passage in Tom Kratman’s Caliphate, in which a protagonist does not dare to address his Muslim superior directly, but, instead addresses the grout between the floor-tiles (because even addressing the floor-tiles themselves would be a presumptuous and beheading-worthy act) and asks that this grout intercede and relay his words to the most munificent and magnificent Caliph, who is sitting just a few feet before him.

    This is our State-run Media today. They give Obama more fealty than even Christ was given by his apostles.

    THEY GROVEL. They would bump their foreheads on the floor if they were so required.
