Obama IRS Presser Redux - The "Preapproved" Press Conference

Tyler Durden's picture

We are sure every effort has been undertaken to ensure Mr. Erdogan's visit (Iran Gold or not) was a success but just in case there was any confusion if the administration has learned anything as a result of the scandals in the past week, the following tweet from CBS' White House correspondent Mark Knoller should add insight on just how much more transparent the administration is and how seriously it takes the freedom of the press...

Campaign = teleprompter.

Press conference = pre-screening.

The marionette strings are tightening....

It should be re-named "Puppet Conference".

Maybe he should change his name to Mark Knopfler...opens more doors...

Well, at least the black house knows all the questions that will be asked beforehand because of all the illegal wire taps.

Hey Obama. Guess what? FUCK YOU!

The worst damage that is done is not from the 'secrets' which the press hide from us, but from the little bits of shit smelling propaganda which they force feed us on rotating hourly schedules in order to control the thought processes of the masses. These pre-planned, twice digested choda clinging nuggets are pre-approved by the stazi and then regurgitated as little gobbits of authorised spew to the masses.

Hey, when I was a young virile good looking stud of a whipper snapper in college during the days of free love, I never got chosen, selected or called on either... so get a grip on it, man.  Get a grip.

Is it just me or is Obama looking more and more like Alfred E. Neuman as he ages?

a video morph would not be worth the effort anymore

5+ years of not asking any pointed questions, a little late to expect to ask them now

Mr. President, sir, have any of your boyfriends ever been HIV positive? Thank you.

To all above posters and those below, perhaps this advice will work: One giant yawn.

Obama want to show the Turks he runs press conferences just like them!

Do I sense a budding relationship...,

That's what I keep telling myself

Knukles...not to be disrespectful or anything, but how many nibbles do you expect to get if you bait the hook with "I was in college back in the days of free love."

That's why I never tell anyone I was at the first Grassroots concert at the bandshell in Daytona. "La, la, la-la-la live for today!"

"Sexy" and "ancient" don't go together all that well. Just sayin.

Yo flacon,

that's all cool and shit but watch for drones flying over your head.

This fucking Obama is nothing more than a cunt. Fuck him sideways with a rusty chainsaw

You know, for a pre-planned, administration-directed confessional, intended to innoculate themselves from the full weight of the true story, they sure did a piss-poor job.

Need to do more of the Nixonian sweat beading on the upper lip to show the sincere concern for the public's well being.

Can't he just ask it anyway? Say it loud and clear.

And if after that they won't invite you anymore what's the difference? If you can't ask you are not there.

Kind of like when Joe Wilson yelled out 'You lie!' during Obummer/TOTUS' SOTU address?

Well, gosh, if Knoller is pissy about not being a questioner, he's gotta start working harder. Prepare better. Wear brighter & more colorful clothing, to stand out from the pack. Brush up on his (obviously flagging) fellatio skillz. He'll be back on his knees in the warm fuzzy embrace of the Dear Leader in no time flat.

The administration will pretend to give us news, and the MSM will pretend to report it.

Oh and by the way, I propose that no reference to Eric Holder be made going forward by Zerohedge commenters without using his full and proper name:

Eric "Butcher of Waco" Holder.

Balanced Integer's picture

I approve of this proposal. You wouldn't happen to publish a newsletter by any chance, would you?

Imminent Crucible's picture

Don't forget Eric "armorer to the Zetas" Holder. Eric "Scourge of the Border Patrol" Holder. Eric "Second Biggest Liar in the Govt" Holder.

I could go on, but everyone already knows that the U.S. is run by a gang of brutal criminal sociopathic liar gangsters.  I notice I'm not seeing many Obama-Biden bumper stickers on cars all of a sudden.

Involved in Ruby Ridge, Waco, OKC...  What do they have in common?  Children dead. And Eric Holder. End of story. (correction: at Ruby Ridge it was a mother holding her child that died)

They should make the S&P drop a point for every minute he's late, that would speed him up a bit.

That's funny, as everything there is from China...ah, production and supply chain problems in the socialist utopia?

Heh, heh - Well, 11.2% of Kenya's population is Muslim.

Bad roll of the dice, Amerikuh.

Edward Fiatski's picture

Kenyan's Man Cum is Supreme, so you could say it's not half, but at least 51%.

On a serious note, that grey hair of his - that's from several CIA briefings on the future events around the world. It is not easy-living, when one knows that billions will die in a thermonuclear woar-slash-holocaust.

Not an easy Post to maintain indeed.

"Hey man, he's only half-Muslim."


Obama Said

"I’m not the strapping young Muslim socialist I used to be."  He's still a socialist...

Anyway, there's no such thing as an ex-Muslim(or half-muslim). You are either a Muslim or a kafir, infidel, dead meat target.

Did that dictatorial fuck-face Erdogan say Turkish republic of Cyprus?
