The incredible shrinking mandate: Obama abdicates, Bill Clinton takes over White House

by editor on December 11, 2010

An incredible event occurred at the White House on Friday. President Obama meekly excused himself from his own press briefing and former President Clinton took over, fielding questions for more than half an hour.

Had some emergency caused President Obama to rush away? Had the red phone rung? Was North Korea bombing South Korea again? Had Iran launched an attack on Israel?

No. None of those things. He left because he was late for a party and didn’t want to piss off the First Lady.

As the Telegraph UK describes the exceedingly odd situation:

But after a few opening comments, Mr Obama made clear he had to leave and excused himself, saying that his wife, Michelle, expected his presence at one of the many parties that presidents host during the month of December.

“I’ve been keeping the First Lady waiting,” he said.

Mr Clinton, who clearly had some time on his hands, responded: “I don’t want to make her mad. Please go.”

“And don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way you, you miserable excuse for a President,” he thought to himself.

Every time we think this President can’t make himself look any weaker, he surprises us. We’d say man up, but that seems unlikely with this President.

Obama is weak, even for a usurper, he’s a sorry excuse. He left a press meeting because he didn’t want to piss off his wife??? C’mon dude, you have to have a better excuse than that, that’s just weak. Ummm, doesn’t his beefy wife know he’s the POTUS? Obama: “Sorry I’m late baby, I had a press meeting-very important!” Michelle: “You sorry ass excuse for a husband! You know I ain’t playin’ wit chu when it come to my parties! You ig’nant assho’! Don’t chu eva do that to me again!!” She is quite frightening, although if I were him, I’d always have elephant tranquilizers handy.

This… is soooo disgusting!!!

Of course Clinton loves this. It may him feel like he was in charge again, but seriously?!

He had to leave because the First Lady was waiting? Are we SURE Obama has balls?

Obama is an unbelievable pussy. My MOTHER has bigger balls. Come to think of it, she’s got bigger biceps too. Of course I wouldn’t want to piss off the Wookie either.

But I bet she doesn’t have bigger biceps than MICHELLE! LOL

Bill Clinton is the one Democrat who cannot run for President in 2012 so maybe Obama thought he was safe turning the podium over to him. Still, it was one of the most amazing political moments I’ve ever witnessed. Never has a POTUS appeared more out of touch and helpless—and there’s lots of bad people around the world who have taken notice and will act accordingly .

The Iranian won’t need to install missles in Venezuela, they’ll install them in the Oval Office.

Yet you forget his wife is looming in the horizon and one can make an assumption that he would feed her advice and hence with her there would be kind of another Bill Clinton in power again. Obama gave Hillary supporters and Hillary herself great ammunition. He is an idiot.

He bravely ran away, he bravely ran away, When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled ohhh brave brave brave brave SirObin!

Ok, this was the most shameful moment in presidential history in my lifetime – and I watched Nixon resign. If you see all the footage, the minute Obama ad-libs the “Christmas party” line, Bill literally starts cracking UP…and he can’t look at SirObin again without cracking UP again so he tells him to gtfo. Surprised he didn’t say, “Boy, get me some coffee first.” It couldn’t have been any worse if he had. Cenk Uygur expressed absolute astonishment as did anyone who was reporting AT THE TIME…of course today it’s all “Bill Clinton – how awesome!” (and in comparison, I guess it is…which is pretty damn sad)…

If I were Iran I’d start moving nukes down to Venezuela about now…and who knows? Maybe while we’re all distracted with wikileaks, they WILL.

It is truly amazing the way the New York Times reported on this event (a non-event to them).

I for one was actually extremely pleased to see a white guy in charge of teh white house again, even if it was Clinton.

Old liberal media liked to say that everything this President did was ‘unprecedented’ – well, this is actually unprecedented, where’s the wall-to-wall coverage pointing that out?

This was the most unbelievable abdication of power by a sitting president I can imagine short of resigning his office. Obama just showed not only his constituents but, yet again, the entire world his impotence as a leader (I’ll leave the private impotence question up to his wife).

I’d rather not piss off my “old lady” either, I’ll give him a free pass on that one.
But Clinton? WTF

I look at my calendar before scheduling a meeting to see if there is a conflict. Didn’t he know about the party before scheduling the pressed? You’d think as POTUS, he could schedule it whenever he wanted…like he scheduled one a couple of years ago that delayed the start of the Little League World Series. His calendar czar should be fired. BTW, I love that the Google ad at the top of the page is for Safelink Wireless! Gotta go get me a free phone supported by the government. 🙂

George Soros, Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz, Fethullah Gulen and a few others whose names have remained secret thus far.

unfreakingbelivable. George W Bush must be laughing his ass off at this fool. McCain must be so humiliated losing to this loser…

And here I was thinking it was “tee” time. Maybe not in Washington. My mind is geared to the weather here in San Diego. In the upper 70’s today. Either way, I never thought I would be glad to see Bill in a position of power. But with Obama, anybody is an improvement.

I agree RockingHorseGuy.

You know, with a guy this weak and clueless in the White House, if I was Iran, I’d think about putting ballistic missiles somewhere close. . . like Venezuela maybe.

It may be a done deal, JustAl. But at medium range only at the moment. How long will it be before Iran develops long range missiles with nuclear tips?
