Who needs a link? You can see him walk off the podium with reporters shouting questions 99.9% of the time.
The other 0.1% is when reporters and Americans are "treated" to a real press conference when he bloviates after answering two or three questions from his adoring lapdogs before time is up.
Of course, no one asks him any hard questions because they might make him mad and he won't grace them with his presence anymore.
The reporters already know whether or not the POTUS will be taking questions__but they ask anyway for on occasion they'll get a reply.

Today, only select reporters were invited.

A person who's dedicated her life to Obama should already know these things__you disappoint me babe.

Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) was embarrassed on Wednesday’s Your World with Neil Cavuto, using archived video to expose the congressman’s hypocrisy on the debt limit.

"Rangel supported raising the debt limit before today’s deadline, of course, but back in 2004, with Republican George W. Bush in the White House, he sang a different tune."

++++++++++

Azzhole democrats and establishment republicans, aka the smart people, just voted to put us another trillion dollars in debt.

Anyone know why crook and tax cheat Charlie Rangel is still employed?

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Residents of the District of Columbia were roused from their sleep by a massive fireworks display over the White House just after midnight, as President Obama declared what he called “a national day of gloating.”

“It would not be productive for this nation, going forward, to crow about our victory over political adversaries,” he said in a nationally televised address.“So let’s get it all out of our systems today.”

Immediately after the President’s speech, loudspeakers outside the White House blasted “We Are the Champions,” and the national day of gloating began.

In addition to a ticker-tape parade, the day’s events will include a screening on the Mall of a clip reel of Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s marathon Senate speech, punctuated by sad trombone sounds.

“Starting tomorrow, my message to the Republicans is,‘Let’s work together for the American people,’&#8201;” said Obama, wearing what appeared to be a beer hat.“But today my message is,‘We won, bitchaz.’&#8201;”

Remember how controlled the press corps was under Bush? Hell, he even planted his own fake reporter from a fake news source, Talon News. Jeff Gannon Guckert. Remember him? He visited the White House 169 times or something.

You got on my copy & pasting skills, even called me out when I told you about the video of the Democrat Senator , exposing the Republican Speaker, on the house floor for, Republicans changing house rule 22;4 so that, nobody besides the Majority Leader of the house could bring up a privileged vote to immediately reopen the gov't. Then you turn around &, pull this stunt. Hypocrisy in it's truest form, by another novist minded righty. What you got to say about that, since you aren't into answering questions in which you have no answer for!

<quoted text> Heard this on the radio this morning as I was taking the girls to school. The said something to the effect that what we just had wasn't a debt crisis. He said the real debt crisis will happen when nobody will loan us money. We are on our way there now.
Looking in the direction we are headed, there will be a time coming soon when there won't be a country in the world stupid enough to loan this United States any money.
However, there are cases in history when a benefactor country "loaned" money to another country, and then the country being given government welfare had to send its army to fight wars they would otherwise not have been involved in.
Today, the Armed Forces of the United States is, as we speak, training Al Qaeda terrorists on a US military base in Jordan. I wonder if that is related to the fact that soon there won't be any country in the world stupid enough to give money to the United States.
Come to think of it, there was a(nother) insane unconstitutional proposal from this administration to give federal land to China in exchange for a reduction of the debt they hold. It was right before the idiots in the White House floated their trillion dollar coin to fund a government outside the authority of Congress to see if that would fly.
It appears the White House is desperate to get money from anywhere. I'm thinking they're not such morons that they can't see the obvious collapse coming.

With a single payer healthcare system administered by the government and paid for through taxation, that is not attached to employment; insurance companies would be eliminated; the profit making of insurance companies would be eliminated. The Government negotiates the prices of the medications on behalf of the people; prices for surgeries are the same across the board.
There will be no copays, no deductibles, no denial for pre existing conditions. Yes, that is a perfect system, like in Canada.
But where would we go when we need real medical care like Canadians come here for?

No, I don't. I know how insurance works; I don't know why you don't, or refuse to try to understand it.
Nevertheless, you may be making some progress in that you now know that if your husband loses his health insurance; that you can now buy a policy even with pre existing conditions; and keep your daughter on it until age 26. Without Obamacare; you would not be insurable.

Perfect? You obviously don't know the meaning of the word unless you're claiming Canada's HC system isn't flawed.

Shouldn't the greedy profit in the education and food industries also be eliminated? They are both "rights" after all, aren't they?

You also forgot to mention what happens to the millions of people currently employed in the industry?
