This worthless excuse of a president is so disconnected from the people. obama walking off the podium at a to let a former president handle a situation that it seems he cannot handle is pathetic. Now, I don’t begrudge a president for going to a function, but he shouldn’t have walked off a podium in the public at a press conference on national TV while letting a former president speak on his behalf and the country is in economic pain.
In terms of Washington political drama, Friday was an instant classic.
President Obama ushered former President Bill Clinton to the White House briefing room late Friday for an impromptu press session, then abruptly left the wonky and winsome Arkansan at the podium by himself to defend the Obama administration’s tax deal.
“I’ve been keeping the first lady waiting for about half an hour, so I’m going to take off,” Obama said.
Clinton chuckled, joking, “I don’t want to make her mad. Please go,” and then quickly turned back to the microphone and began taking questions from the White House press corps, which had been given no advance notice of the two presidents’ trip to the briefing room (see video below).
