I guess being President of the United States is even more challenging than getting a lot of the asbestos out of Altgeld Gardens - apparently, Obama has better things to do and more important places to be than at a tiresome press conference talking about his plans for the economy:
Obama Ditches Tax Cut Presser, Bill Clinton Takes Control
Great news: Bill Clinton apparently now president again
and Jim Treacher:
I supose Axelrod is plotting a very subtle comebck strategy for his guy (Hmm, is "Comeback Kid" available as a nickname?). Sometime soon we should look for billboards in the DC area with Obama's smiling visage and a big "Miss Me Yet?" caption. Or keep an eye on milk cartons.
(a) bringing in Bill Clinton to provide assurance that Obama isn't triangulating the Dems;
(b) listening to Bill Clinton defend the Bush roll-back of the Clinton tax hikes;
(c) watching Obama implicitly declare that while Clinton and the press talked about stimulus and the recovery and unemployment relief, he had more important things to do, namely, get to a party with Michelle. Geez, why not announce he is getting back to the Oval Office to play Farmville?
WHO WAS THE ADULT IN CHARGE? Ann Althouse wonders what Obama and Clinton were thinking. As a Bonus Conundrum, what was Robert Gibbs thinking? He could have ended the show at any time.
