    Obama did something that didn't surprise me at all. No leader turns over the stage to a stand-in and goes off to be with his wife.

    Obama introduced former President Clinton yesterday at a press conference then made some excuse that Michelle was waiting on him so he had to go. Guess the rest of the country can wait on whatever it was he had to do elsewhere.

    No leader turns over the reigns of power to someone else unless he's physically unable to function. He may not have realized it but symbolically that's what he did. Correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    Btw....didn't it seem that when Former President Clinton was speaking at the podium things weren't quite so hopeless???

    Just asking.

    It was surreal when I watched it.
    I don't get shocked easily - and this shocked me.
    Clinton has been rumored for sometime now as not exactly agreeing with Obama's positions, and less than impressed with him overall.
    You just don't bring in a former leader that everyone wishes you were like - and then just hand over the meeting and leave.

    Never seen anything like this.

    I thought he was still president things haven't changed in 10 years.

    Politics in this country are going down the tube... That was about the most un-Presidential thing I have ever seen in my life yesterday.

    It was very shocking. Imagine if GWB had handed over the mic to GHWB. I can't fathom any reason this would happen. It seems as if our president is stumped.

    He's not stumped. He's got history as a guide. He could listen to the opposition.

    Truth is the rumors might be dead-on.

    Obama just wants the fun part of the job and not the tedious part....you know...the part where he has to roll up his sleeves and get to work. Or just answer for his fuckups.

    Obama is in way over his head, he should resign before he fucks things up even worse

    Clinton was just in the Oval Office yesterday. Yes he is a very good speaker but you all were treating him the SAME way you now treat Barack when he was in office,,

    Nobody can trust Republican judgement. Go figure. :cuckoo:

    Both Bill and Barack were and are great presidents.

    Can you imagine Dubya asking his Dad to talk to the press?
