    That was painful to watch. You could see he was deflated and was trying really hard to be patience with the asshats asking him questions. I’ve never seen him look so defeated.

    I’ve been following him since 2004 and since 2008, I haven’t missed a speech or a press conference. Today, I had to change the channel. I just couldn’t watch him. He was really struggling to keep it together.

    The American electorate is dumb.

    Hi Chipsticks and everyone,

    I feel your pain. I had seriously hoped things would have gone differently. But I firmly believe the President is very strong and will bounce back> I am sure he has faced adversities before, just re-read “Dreams From My Father”. I am sure this will make him stronger.

      He needs his party (us) to stick by him and believe in him. We will stand by him and be strong together….2012 will be here before we know it.

    What I sensed more was frustration. Frustration with a dumb electorate so blinded with hate and ignorance they fail to see how they continue to hurt themselves while rewarding and aiding the very same people who brought us the disasterous situation President Obama has been working so hard to dig us out of!!!

    As extraordinary as this President is, it must get really mind numbingly dificult sometimes to make the decision to continue to help and save a swathe of people so cursed with the illness of stabbing themselves again and again.

    And that irritatingly dumb media, so beneath mediocre the world marvels at America’s stupidity in calling these people “journalists”.

    Grade school fake newspapers and radio shows have much smarter and more credible kids role playing.

    Remember during the ’08 election, it came out that he’d said something about “guns, god, and gays?” Well he was right. The fools always vote against their own self interests. George W. Bush created a net 1.1M jobs during his presidency – half of which rethugs were in control in the congress. What in heavens name makes these idiots think they have any interest in creating jobs now? They are in bed with big corp who want to continue shipping jobs overseas.

    I personally think he handled this particular press conference perfectly. This was the perfect stance to take on this day. If he had came out any any less humility and candor, anything less than humble, thoughtful, and most of classy, the haters would have been all over it more than usual. I loved seeing this side of the President. He brilliantly shifted the argument. Notice news hounds could not pounce the way the wanted to. bless

      Agreed. I think President Obama handled himself with the grace and intelligence he has always shown. Yes he is a bit hurt but as someone said earlier, it will only make him stronger.

      Words cannot express how much admiration I have for this man.

    I for one can’t believe how stupid the media is. Oh who am I kidding, yes I can. These are the same asshats that let the last administration lie us into a war.

    GOD help us.

    Ugh, I now remember why I stopped watching CNN – that Ed Henry is insufferably stupid. Eeeeeew!
    The other one from ABC, what’s his name, Jake Tapper, is nothing more than gossip rag material.

    What an absolutely pathetic bunch!

      Aint that the truth. I felt like slapping the snot out of Ed Henry today. He is a real piece of work. He’s almost as bad as Jake Tapper, Chip Reid and the rest of the idiot media.

      The only thing I watch sometimes on CNN is Fareed Zakaria GPS. Other than that Im sick of the whole lot of them. Especially the so-called pundits.

        Donna, I listen to Randi Rhodes about 3x/week (randirhodes.com). Most days of the week, she really keeps me informed and energized. I agree with her about 95% of the time–most times she’s on point, few times not but is a great source for me and she is highly intelligent. She truly supports this President’s agenda–that’s why MSM hates her even though she’s on the left. She doesn’t sell out for money from corporate masters like Ed Shultz, Olbermann, Stewart, etc…She really informs me on the issues.

    Ed Henry is an insolent, dough boy. Arrogance must be a prerequisite for a position in the White House Press Pool.I think President Obama genuinely felt distress for the Democrats that lost their elections. That Republicans should be rewarded for their lack of leadership, and their political posturing over the last 21 months is truly beyond my comprehension. Americans need to wake up and get a clue.
