Maybe he is going to resign to someone who can actually do the job?


Biden's been MIA, I guess come January that leaves Boehner.

As the world turns, absolutely correct. The rest of the world now finds itself with no cohesive relationship with the U.S.

Party on BO...

A "tight sched" that dismisses press conferences on a major policy issue in favor of.......parties.

I saw nothing wrong with what happened, I don't think it was done out of weakness. I think that President Obama knew that former President Clinton was more than capable of handling questions on their discussion, and he just wanted to get out of there and spend some time with his wife.

Nothing more, nothing less.
Then maybe Obama should have run for Lion's Club Prez or something like that. President of the United States is just a little more important than being late for wifey's party.

Indeed ... How much longer will the WH inhabitants continue to "Thumb their Nose" at the American people and "Shuck & Jibe" their way around the "Big Issues" facing this nation ?

As we consider this most tragic situation, it appears that immediate "resignation" by the "One & Crew "is the only effective answer for this most dire situation !

He left a press conference? OMG what is this world coming too. He put Clinton in charge to speak to people? OMG what is this country coming too? You republican hypocrites are incredible. So he left a press conference. Geez people get a grip on reality. Grow up and hug your spouse or children instead of complaining about every little thing Obama does.

Please. Don't include me in the same category as the irrational conservatives and irrational liberals who are unbalanced and can't discern between a serious issue and one that's made up out of thin air - as is this one.

I'm reminded of the discussion that someone started a while back that made a big deal out of Michelle Obama's eyelashes. It was just as frivolous.

It really didn't help the perception that Obama is aloof at his job. I do know that Presidents in the past sought advice from former Presidents. If you listen to the LBJ tapes, there are a number of conversations where he sought the advice of Presidents Eisenhower & Truman, but they didn't take the stage as far as I know.

Really shows where Obama's head is....a social / party takes greater priority than major U.S. policy???? Seriously???????

Maybe Obama needs to be a professional party planner or the White House gardener....he certainly does not need to be POTUS.
