I Believe It Was A Mocha Smoothie, Ed

So the President fielded the questions himself in today’s White House press briefing, and FOX’s Ed Henry couldn’t help himself, earning this:

“Ed, just from a political perspective, do you think the President of the United States, going into reelection, wants gas prices to go up even higher? … Is there anybody here who thinks that makes a lot of sense?”

It was nice of President Obama to relieve Ed of his burdensome lunch money and then get Ed a milkshake from the White House kitchen, and then drink it all up like that. I wonder what FOX Nation will sa…oh hey. Pre-emptive Uppity.

Why Did Pres. Obama Hold His First Press Conference in Three Months on Super Tuesday?

It’s like they knew Ed Henry was going to be a douchebucket beforehand.

    What I wonder, and have wondered for years, and wondered about all the corporate news networks, is why are they willing to have their national affairs reporters act like gibbering loons, jackasses, and tendentious corporate hacks in public?

    One would think it would be bad for business.

    Oh, wait, maybe it IS bad for business.

    Edit: and, apologies for implicit hate speech directed at all jackasses of the animal kingdom, and many among the human race whom I just insulted.

    Edit edit: Obama should just throw the press conferences wide open and ask specifically for only non dumb non dishonest questions. See how many are eager to speak up.

    How do you like them gas prices now that you’re out of work, Ed?

    There is nothing anyone could say to make me click on that link. It is possible someone could write a post with that headline that would be worth reading, but the prefix of “Megan McArdle” just transforms the title into a bat-signal for illogic and wrongheadedness.

    The taxonomy is a bit confusing to me. Can someone explain the relevant differences between/among a douchebag, douchebucket, and douchenozzle? And why would one choose to use any of these words when “idiot” is both commonly understood and completely accurate in describing Mr. Henry?

    But to your original point, of course they knew Henry was going to be an idiot. He’s incapable of being anything else.

    It’s not the first time Ed has had his lunch money stolen by Obama…you’d think he’d wise up by now.

    I guess there must be an audience for this crud, the constant accusations of, the horror!, autonomy and independence (why a presser on OUR ‘lection day?), the simultaneously idiotic and arrogant questions. Problem is, there are too many people walking around today, who could come right out of the 1850s, except they can’t talk so publicly about their attitudes as in the past.

    I use the Huck Finn’s pappy test, are they basically talking like Finn’s ol’ boozer pappy:

    ” Oh, yes, this is a wonderful govment, wonderful. Why, looky here. There was a free n***** there from Ohio… They said he was a p’fessor in a college, and could talk all kinds of languages, and knowed everything. And that ain’t the wust. They said he could VOTE when he was at home. Well, that let me out. Thinks I, what is the country a-coming to? It was ‘lection day, and I was just about to go and vote myself if I warn’t too drunk to get there; but when they told me there was a State in this country where they’d let that n***** vote, I drawed out. I says I’ll never vote agin. Them’s the very words I said; they all heard me; and the country may rot for all me–I’ll never vote agin as long as I live. And to see the cool way of that n*****, why, he wouldn’t a give me the road if I hadn’t shoved him out o’ the way. ”

    The ‘cool way’ of certain people (racial/ethnic minorities, women, damned kids, poor lesser people parasites, etc.), adds insult to injury to many ‘right thinking’ in this country.

    Need to convey to them that they are 160 years behind the times.

    Edit: I censored the N word to avoid offense, but missed one on the first go around. So, I can get the N word past the filter but Bo3HN3r ppllzz is naughty?

    Edit edit: I guess that is the economics of it. Too many old coots with the limpy third leg trying having sinful slutty sex is the problem with this country. Why are our tax dollars paying for this sin and licentiousness?

    To give a sense of scale, The US Marine Corps budget for 2012 is 23 Billion, The Air Force’s Budget for Procurement of Classified Programs is 17.8 Billion, and the budget for the DOD Missile Defense Agency is 8.5 Billion Dollars a year.

    IIJM, or did anyone else notice that President Obama managed to off two birds with that one well-placed zinger? Not only did he school Ed Henry on his asking a stupid question: but at the same time made it clear that Fox “News” was peddling a line of bullshit with their “higher gas prices” nonsense – which was neatly shot down by his retort.

    Bird One: Tool reporter.
    Bird Two: Tool network.

    And all, we notice, without the use of a teleprompter…

    @scav: “Lived”? When did he become a real boy? I’m sure he just meant shook the batteries or something.

    Well, he has spawned. One of them looks like an Osmond tho. Was it hanky panky or are all the Mormons related?

    There are tests we can do to investigate for both cyborg and DNA identification. Many corporate leaders prefer outsourcing as the believe it produces superior products at lower cost. Just trying to keep grounded in likelihood and empiricism.

    @SiubhanDuinne: for me as well. I, too, thought that fellow voters would peer at me in absolute wonder. I can’t wait to check my precinct results tomorrow to see if I was the ONLY person casting a Dem vote. Entirely possible, since so few voters of any persuasion were there. Fastest I’ve ever been in and out of the voting booth.

    Who’s the gray-haired guy sitting next to Ed? ‘Cause his head snapped around when Ed finally got to the actual question.

    @Mino: I’m pretty sure that’s real news. I recall seeing a remark in a strategic foreign policy blog about it a week or two ago.

    Mixed feelings – the foreign despots deserve to get smashed, but their followers usually have no choice but to follow or get killed. I have no patience with religious dictators of any stripe; deluded followers are something else.

    It’s like they knew Ed Henry was going to be a douchebucket beforehand.

    How hard can that be? I can predict that the sun will rise, everyday, too.

    Back in the excruciating days of the gwb presidency, prior to his rare press conferences, reporter were required to submit their questions beforehand.

    This President thinks on his feet. He is quite intelligent, so, yes, in a way, he was prepared for a douchey question from fox entertainment. Que the “harsh, uppity” meme.
