    I couldn't really hear what he said because my PC speakers at work suck and its loud in my office, but I wanted to get everyone's opinions (good or bad) regarding the content of this press conference.

    My honest thought is he looks way out of his league without a teleprompter, good lighting and makeup and an adoring audience. He looked like a State Senator from Illinois. He was nervous (understandable) and his attempt to be "real" fell flat when he asked the reporter about her arm. The good news is he gave Saturday Night Live an excellent premise for a skit. And the sixteen white guys behind: Priceless.

    Your defence of Obama is to compare him to W! Oh, this is too good to be true!

    There is no need for defense, supporters like you are all the offense needed.

    Pretty good press conference....

    He said he would pass a stimulus package for the economy, extend unemployment benefits, and provide middle class tax relief.

    He also said that Iran having nuclear weapons was "unacceptable."

    ?

    He had notes to stick to like all presidents do. I shutter to think of McCains first conference without a teleprompter. And the questions were well thought out, well said and very clear. Its clear what he wants to do but he is not yet president so how can you get into detail about plans that you cant mandate for another 3 months? :cuckoo:

    A few days after the election and you already find something to complain about, typical and predictable partisan voter who is upset about his party not being in power. How pathetic is that.
