Obama Speaks!

Office of the President Elect?

Office of the President Elect?

In a moment of unmitigated arrogance, President-elect Obama took a below the belt shot at the widow of President Ronald Reagan:

In terms of speaking to former presidents, I have spoken to all of them, uh, that are, uh, living … obviously, uh, President Clinton, uh … [laughter] … hey, I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan, uh, thing about doin’ any seances…

Here’s the video:

If the presumptive President-elect knew anything of the Reagan’s he would understand the deep, abiding love between Mrs. Reagan and her late husband. After the attempted assassination of her husband, yes, she was concerned with his welfare and apparently did consult a psychic.

This was a cheap shot, and hopefully not be a sign of things to come. The stock market, which had been slowly climbing after the “Obama bounce” of nearly minus 800 points the past two days, dropped 200 points shortly after his remarks.

A quick check at Register.com reveals the following:

impeachobama.com, impeachobama.net, impeachobama.org are not available.

The interesting thing is, punching in the url http://www.ImpeachObama.com re-directs to Google. Have those “do no damage” capitalists at Google already figured out that url would bring considerable traffic and decided to claim it themselves?

UPDATE:

“President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan today to apologize for the careless and off handed remark he made during today’s press conference,” said transition spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter. “The President-elect expressed his admiration and affection for Mrs. Reagan that so many Americans share and they had a warm conversation.” source

As a follower of Chicago politics and politicians, I’d say “It’s on.” I’ve been magnanimous for two whole days while I watched the stock market tank even further and this presumptuous representative of  “THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT ELECT” held his first press conference. That’s about as “fur” as I can go. Any repeating of the non-nonsensical claim about former First Lady Nancy Reagan, even with a quick apology, makes me uneasy.

[President Obama] Yeah, uh… uh…I’m sorry about that…uh… nuke. I…uh… admire and have great affection for you guys.

[President Putin] That’s okay, I’m a mile underground. How about New York City, Washington, and Miami?

[President Obama] That…uh… seems…uh…fair. Go ahead. Tel Aviv…uh… too?

[President Putin] If you insist.

[President Obama] Of course. Uh…It’s great to have this…uh… warm conversation with you.

[President Putin] Of course it’s a warm conversation. Wait for about 10 minutes and 45 seconds. It’s going to get a lot warmer for you.
