Unreal… Barack Obama: “You People in the Press Are Incorrigible” (Video)

Really? Is Barack Obama really complaining about media coverage?
The media has NEVER been more in the tank for a politician than during the Obama era. What a joke.
Talk about thin skin!
Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were on “60 Minutes” for a grueling interview media lovefest.

Real Clear Politics has the transcript:

STEVE KROFT, CBS NEWS: I have to ask you, what’s the date of expiration on this endorsement?


KROFT: No, no, I have to ask that question. I mean, come on. I mean, you’re sitting here, together. Everybody in town is talking about it already, and this interview is taking place.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You know, Steve, I’ve got to tell you, you guys in the press are incorrigible. I was literally inaugurated four days ago, and you’re talking about elections four years from now.

    “I was literally inaugurated four days ago, and you’re talking about elections four years from now.”

    Haven’t Democrats and Republicans both been talking about the next election for weeks now?

    Obama is the first president ever whose second term was recognized this early as a lame duck presidency.

    I think part of the reason is that – whether we voted for him or not – we are all just really, really tired of his constant lecturing, condescension, platitudes, and complaining.

    So Mr. President, surprise us.

    Do your job the next 4 years.

    Are we pretending he was serious?

  • saveus

    the next election can’t come soon enough

  • Skandia Recluse

    Well, it’s not like Obama has a history of reversing himself within a short period of time.

    So ya, that question was really unnecessary. It’s like asking a confidence man if he is running a scam, as he he would admit it if he were.

  • Skandia Recluse

    … as if he would admit it…

    I only do this to keep the typo police away.

  • dwdude

    whenever anyone asks him anything he doesn’t like, he criticizes them. until the press stops being his lapdog, we have to suffer through his infantile narcissistic behavior. i think his veneer is starting to wear off. gun control is going to hand him a big defeat. notice he’s moving on to immigration and amnesty. anything but the budget…he can’t discuss economics, so he keeps quiet until just before crunch time…time to stand firm and hand him his hat.

  • Tom Doniphon

    Yeah, I think the skeet shootin comments are his efforts to slowly back away from gun control! He has DiDi out front and he isn’t known for working closely with Congress to get it done!

    You are completely right! Amnesty is his big thing now! Newtown just got in the way!

  • Sharon

    It would be so fun to see a real reporter ask him a hard question. His head would immediately explode.

  • Jonah Vark

    Countless stories about Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend and Lance Armstrong’s lies about taking dope dominate the news. However, there is not one article about Obama’s fake birth certificate and Selective Service registration or the many allegations of his cocaine habits. Just sayin’.

  • olm

    I hate to say this John, but we are so far beyond his fake everything. What about the court ruling that says his recess appointments are unconstitutional. And yes, I do believe he is unconstitutional, but he’s not going anywhere.
    So, lets see, we recently have Benghazi, and government agency acting for a year that all should be null and void. This lapdog media dude asks about 2016 and Baby Barack pitches a fit.
    I can’t even pay attention any more. It is beyond sick.

  • RL

    The incompetent calling out the incorrigible. Who’d a guessed?

    They still feel they have to play the game so the low info voter is fooled. So the dictator gently criticizes the DMSM so the intellectually challenged will still believe the DMSM isn’t a propaganda arm of the left.

    “…I was literally inaugurated four days ago…”

    Official inauguration was Sunday, Jan. 20; extravaganza inauguration was Monday, Jan. 21.

    So – this Obie/Hill/CBS interview was taped either Wednesday, 23rd or Thursday, 24th. Hillary was pretty much occupied all day Wednesday giving her non- testimony before the Senate and the Congress.

    Her temper tantrum and in-your-face attitude, along with her lies – and Rand Paul’s delightfully brazen [and realistic, logical] suggestion that Ambassador Stevens was meeting with the Turk at the “facility” [NOT a consulate] in Benghazi because the enterprise underway was Obama’s operation of running the dead Ghadaffi’s weapons supply into Turkey for distribution in north Africa [read: Algeria], and into Syria.

    Obama called CBS: “I want [demand] to be interviewed NOW…with Hillary…NOW”.

    Damage control, folks – BIG TIME damage control! He’s scared s***less that the truth will out!!

  • Militant Conservative

    Soon as I saw the Liar and his coke bottle glasses side kick my mom and dad asked

    what it was. I said a dog and pony show for the idiot masses and turned the TV off.

    Next four years is going to be hell on earth, no pun intended.

    Powder is dry

  • thenabrd

    oh boo hoo, he’s starting to realize he’s not going to be the very center of the universe for his insane need to be the one and only thing media would ever talk about!!! if its not all about him, all the time he freaks out and then lets things happen/not happen to get his ugly mug back in front of the cameras. everything’s a crisis with these idiots and that gets them face time even more than they already get!!!

  • Swifty

    Still the crybaby victim. He is a damn disgrace.

  • bigL

    didn’t wantthe DC appeals court decison about his abuse of power onthe air either, Notice how the weekend news doofuses scotched that into the ether.So like poster above wnate this interview in the can.
    All the courts have IMO Journ-O-listers stiill to tip off the junta, so rather than get fuests to talk on that which obama is goingto ignore anyjhow, they had this ready to go
    Old news now..the abuse of power decidsion. Obie gets 4 or 5 of those abuse of power dec. at some point he is toast and his handlers know that…

    The compound in Benghazi was/is not an official entity of the U.S. Government, nor of the State Dept. The US Embassy in Libya and the US Consulate in Libya are in other locations – in cities nearer the northern coast. There has been no direct statement or information from the administration as to the function of the Benghazi compound – only obfuscation and denials.

    The Libyan government is responsible for providing protection to foreign embassies and consulates. Our government also provides security and military protection at our embassies and consulates.

    Why did the Obama administration [Obie/Hillary] pull security from Benghazi? Why did the administration [Obie/Hillary] never bother to upgrade the Benghazi “consulate” to meet the protection building/safety codes enumerated in State Dept. for such foreign-based facilities? Why did the administration [Obie/Hillary] permit [whatever] operations to continue at Benghazi after several direct attacks on the facility – as well as attacks on other nations’ facilities proved the location a horrific liability to personnel? Why did the Obama administration [Obie/Hillary] refuse Ambassador Stevens’ numerous desperate pleas for protection at Benghazi? Why did the administration [Obie/Hillary] order a stand-down to the rescue operations that had been initiated by our military’s response to Stevens’ “we’re under attack” messages? And why was the responsible military officer then removed [read: fired] from his duty station?

    Because only OFFICIAL entities – embassies and consulates – are afforded those protections by the State Dept. “FACILITIES” – such as was the Benghazi compound – do not really ‘exist’. They are not official. They are under the radar, so to speak – and if they are being used as a base for gun-running/weapons-running – they are illegal.

    Rand Paul’s questioning “observation” of the rumors flying throughout the middle east [see #14 above] – and a slam-bam immediate interview = HUGE trouble for Obama. If Republicans have the smarts to pay attention and the courage run with the ball that “interview” handed them.

    Heads up Texas! They’re coming and they won’t rest until Texas is deep blue. You know that when the progs set their mind to something, they don’t rest until their goals are reached. No matter how long it takes.

    Of course Obama doesn’t want anyone to talk about “elections four years from now.”

    All Obama wants to talk about is Obama. He can’t (yet?) run for the Presidency again in four years and, as such, he’s reluctant to talk about it.

    Nope, any talk that’s focused on four years in the future doesn’t fit his “me-me-me” narcissism.

    Meanwhile, Obama will probably continue to replay his same old and lame “blame Bush for what he did, or didn’t do, 4 to 8 years ago”…

  • RedBeard

    It’s been clear for years now that The One bristles at any hint of criticism, just like a good megalomaniacal narcissist is expected to do.

  • Jsmith

    Why is he sitting next to Drew Carey?

  • Amalgamated Cliff Divers, Local 157

    He wanted to be asked about the location of his presidential library or his memoirs. She wants to talk about getting the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Everybody gets a trophy!

    This lapdog media dude asks about 2016 and Baby Barack pitches a fit.

    That’s “pitching a fit?” Did you even watch it? Do other people you know have giant grins on their faces when they pitch a fit?

  • paul52

    Incorrigible??? Really??? Gawd, what an ego. And Kroft is drooling down his chin. A Clinton and an Obama playing kissy-kissy? Can’t be genuine. Will Willie and Mooooochelle be seen hanging out together next week??? Stay tuned.

    You know, Steve, I’ve got to tell you, you guys in the press are incorrigible. I was literally inaugurated four days ago, and you’re talking about elections four years from now.

    A real journalist would have replied, “Well, a number of other things you’ve said follow that pattern. Is there any particular reason why this should be expected to be different?”

    Surprisingly, Al Sharpton’s interview with Hillary Clinton on MSNBC was much more aggressive and probing than the fluff piece on 60 minutes. According to a report in the Daily Rash, after making Hillary uncomfortable with inquiries about Benghazi, he had the audacity to bring up Bill and Monica. LOL! http://www.thedailyrash.com/al-sharpton-talks-to-hillary-clinton-about-benghazi-blood-clots-and-bills-penis

    Don’t worry about Grammer Police
    For now we will see how Traitor in Chief are praising Hillary Clinton next moment we may never find out what going on behind the scene.

  • Cactus

    @#31 l.barney… I do see the similarities… but I liked Farquar better. At least he was funny 😉
