President Obama's 100 Daze Press Conference
President Thin-Skin is holding his 100 Day Press Conference tonight.
It’s a stunner.
The president likely boasts the worst economic record for any new president in history.
The president said something about bringing down the budget deficit?
How exactly is quadrupling the deficit bringing down the deficit?
Barack Obama claimed that he created or saved 150,000 jobs from his legislation.
Over a million jobs have been lost since he took office so it looks like he has some work to do.
Gross domestic product decreased at an annual rate of 6.1% in the first three months of 2009- a historic low for a new president. Wednesday’s headline data were worse than expected, as analysts had predicted a 4.7% contraction.
Jake Tapper: Do you think the previous administration sanctioned torture?
President Obama: We could have gotten this information in other ways.
He won’t answer the question and uses Great Britain in WW II as an example of a country that did not torture.
Maybe he forgot about these German prisoners at Bad Nenndorf, near Hanover:
For almost 60 years, the evidence of Britain’s clandestine torture programme in postwar Germany has lain hidden in the government’s files. Harrowing photographs of young men who had survived being systematically starved, as well as beaten, deprived of sleep and exposed to extreme cold, were considered too shocking to be seen.
Obama said he believes waterboarding is torture.
Will he demand that our military stop using this technique then?
