CNN’s new White House correspondent mocks Obama, implies he’s a liar

by editor on July 1, 2011

Based on her first question to President Obama, we don’t think Jessica Yellin, CNN’s new White House correspondent, will keep that front row seat in the White House press briefing room much longer.

She might have couched her question in polite terms, but there’s no doubt that she was mocking the president. Maybe even calling him a liar.

Go to the 4:15-ish mark.

Obama: Jessica Yellin. Congratulations, your first question here.
Yellin: Thank you, Mr. President.
Obama: No pressure. You’re going to do great. (Laughter.)
Yellin: Thank you. Your administration has laid out four different dates by which you’ve said that the debt ceiling must be raised or the U.S. would face potential dire consequences. Three of those dates have come and gone and we haven’t faced financial calamity. Some of your critics have argued that these are then scare tactics to force a deal. So why should the American people believe that the August 2nd deadline is the final deadline by which a deal must be raised? And would you also spell out for us what you believe will happen if the debt ceiling is not raised by that date?

The President who cried, “Wolf!”

This story will have legs, whether those on the left like or not. Plus, acting ATF head Ken Melson looks like he’s being set up as the fall guy, but don’t be fooled. This goes way above Melson, to Holder at the minimum, & probably to his boss.

I don’t see this going anywhere right now, do you? I’m mean, the news flavor of the cycle seems to be Casey Anthony!

danybhoy

For right now, yeah, it’s Casey Anthony. That story is a jury trial, I’ve been part of one(bank robbery), & once the case is decided, it’s over. But if the gun running story starts to pick up a bit of steam, it should fill the vacuum left when the verdict comes in. Even a liberal, pro Demacrat media will hit a major story when it becomes too big to ignore, like Bill Clinton & the dress…

I would say China, but Soros will try to buy it a discount.

i can’t even listen to this lying bloviating fool. such a freaking liar! social security is not tied to the debt ceiling and won’t be affected if they can’t pay their bills. and the jackass in cheif claims congress has gotten us into this mess…. he’s right. nancy pelosi and her band of spend happy blank check pen in hand drunken sailor fiscal policies. i just can’t even look at him or stand to hear his insipid lisping dumb ass lies. would rather hear roseann hosebag barr sing the natioal anthem.

This is one of the major reasons why the the republicans are the ones that still have a trace of sanity left, when the democrates are just eager to digge their graves as fast as possible.

Oh Christ, I’m ready to bang my head against the floor listening to this incoherent drivel! And it’s not even to the “good” bit yet! Oh here’s Jess. Oh shut up you bloated tird.

I’m sure Chrith Matthews has got his tingle on tho.

PS– watch your back, Jess. Be glad Sock Puppet doesn’t have Senator Ted (D-Runk) there to give you a lift home.

Does Emperor Nerobama even realize that yellow lights don’t flash…they just turn yellow, then red. Of course, when Bill Ayers and George Soros and then the US taxpayers pay for you to use corporate jets and limousines and then you pimp air force one for your cronies, yellow lights are only for the “little people”.
Historians 1000 years from now will say “Nero played his harp as Rome burned. Then BHO played golf as the greatest economy in world history collapsed.”

He actually said that if the United States government starts picking and choosing who to pay it will not inspire confidence.

HIS government picks and chooses winners and losers in business all the time.

Has anyone else noticed that the American Flag is missing from the back ground of the press conference? Check the back ground.

Oh WOW! I thought something was alittle off about this picture. He must be feeling pretty confident about his 2nd term possiblities…..

If you look at the Anthony Weiner story, the media did’nt like it at all when he lied to their face, over & over again. Most in the MSM can deal with politicians lying to the people, if they are more or less, likable. But when you look the MSM in the eye & lie to them, they will call you out.

There’s one project that is shovel-ready and that’s the economic plan Obama has been throwing at us. It’s time to bury it.

BTW, I bet Jessica Yellin’s new job will be news reader for KXPO-AM.

With AGW, we’ll know there’s a real crisis (as opposed to a phoney-baloney raise-money ginned-up crisis) if Al Gore moves out of his mansions and into a cave.

With the debt “crisis”, we’ll know there’s a real crisis (as opposed to a phoney-baloney blame-it-on-my-opponents-cause-it’s-my-only-hope-for-reelection crisis) when Obama cancels one of his vacations. Or simply plays 9 holes instead of 18.

Interesting how Obama said the only solution to solving the debt crisis is to raise interest raites so that more countries will lend the USA more money and get in further debt. Not a peep about reducing costs and government spending. To repeat, Obama’s solution to the Republicans not agreeing to raise the debt ceiling is to get in more debt by raising interest rates so that foreigners will buy more of the US debt to pay the existing debt. So in his mind it is either more debt on his terms or more debt on his terms.

Well lets be fair he also said that the govt needs to go after corporate jet owners and take the money out of the military in order to protect food inspector’s jobs.

Jessica Yellin has been a mouthpiece for Obama since 2008.

She was probably nervous because it was her first chance to recite a WH drafted question at a press conference and she ended up flubbing it.

I suspect the question the WH wrote for her went something like this: “The GOP has failed to heed your debt deadline warnings three previous times but you used your superhuman powers and economic genius to save us from their foolishness. How do we know you won’t use your superhero skills to save us from the evil racist Republicans again this time?”

What she must be an idiot because really messed that up.

Damn the wheels must have truly come off the wagon at the White House after this. How much does anyone wish to bet that she will not be at CNN very long? She dared question barry about his honesty and truthfullness. How dare her.

Barack Obama has just been endorsed by the Communist Party of the United States and accepted the endorsement. This is the beginning of the end of the Obama regime, making him a one term President. It is beyond belief why a Vietnam Veteran would support Barack Obama when it was communists who tried to kill them in Vietnam and now they are supporting him for President?

Gun running to Mexico is something we will not accuse ourselves of, just ask my attorney puppet. That mean head of ATF is completely responsible for everything I hired him to do.

We haven’t got a red light yet on the dates for the impending doom the republicans are forcing upon you, just ask Timmy. He knows how to avoid paying taxes and that’s the best kind of person to be treasury secretary.

Shovel and waders already being used to hold at bay the flow of obama feces in households across America will soon be what is for dinner.

It’s much simpler that way. No figuring to do. You just don’t have ANY money.

Yep he sure can he’ll just take whatever the balance says and tell you it’s for the children.

Obama was going to file for bankruptcy before Ayers wrote that book for him.

The only bias I see is this dreadful headline. Just a reminder, the media is supposed to be the watchdog of all government and it is not supposed to believe anything the governments tells us. What kind of schmuck complains about the media asking tough questions? They are not there to support your favorite candidate or political leader. Sheesh people.

hisham
Guest

Then it would be nice jimmy simpson, if the government and the media weren’t wedded at the hip, wouldn’t it? What I see is the pep band playing ‘Hail, Hail the Bands All Here!” ready to pick up the slack, explain away the gaffes and the oops “Did I do that?” crap that we see on a daily basis. In fact, today, the news we get to see from the MSM covers up the real news we don’t hear about until it’s too late for us to do anything about except play catch-up!

jukin

Just a reminder, this is the first time a real question has been asked by a CNN person(can’t call them reporters or journalists).

I strongly believe that the Obama Regime reached out to cnn and we will not see her again at a presser….if the great king obama has another one this year.
