Open thread for all of you intrepid rightwing extremists with strong enough stomachs to endure President Obama’s 100-day television extravaganza this evening.
Fun fact: A reporter for the financially ailing New York Times gloats that the Fishwrap of Record has made $2 million off of Obama-themed merchandise.
Every Obama story by the Times should include this financial disclosure. Same for any other national paper that has been hawking Obama gear since Nov. 4, 2008.
AP’s Jennifer Obama-lovin’ Loven gets the first question. Should we close the border to deal with (bleep) flu? Obama says not now. But they are readying resources on border. He leaves the door open in case of a worse case scenario.
Repeats several times that people need to wash their hands.
Reminds me of how people mocked Bush for recommending to Obama that he use hand sanitizer.
Well, now. After the left-wing bloggers went bananas trying to blame the GOP for underfunding flu pandemic programs, Obama just praised the GOP for working on Tamiflu stockpiles that he inherited.
Gag. NYTimes reporter Jeff Zeleny asks what has “surprised, troubled, enchanted, humbled” Obama the most since his presidency began. Obama gets out his pen to write it all down. Where’s the teleprompter when you need it?
