      Obama feverishly courted the youth vote ... but, when Pelosi is asked whether a younger congress person would be preferable to her, continuing her bid for House leadership ... Pelosi responded with the typical democrat indignation ... usually employed by Obama ... when asked for the truth ... just more liberal lies ... deception ... and cover ups ... God help America !!!

    Unions have done a lot for the people in this country and apparently you do not know your history. Tired of the stupid repos making all unions sound like thugs, The thugs are you idiots that tried to surpress voting rights and womans rights. Thugs are the norquist that had the house sign pledges and came after any candidate that did not. Thugs are the lying repos that use out side money to win elections. The unions and progressive business leaders have put more people to work then jerks like you. Forward.

    There were alot of different groups at that meeting. Today, Obama meets with the different business groups. Labor should have an equal place alongside business at the table. Period.

      Do they make the law, or do we get another executive order to correct that little problem.

      18,500 workers at Hostess just lost their jobs, because of union demands ... even the famous Hostess Twinkies have become extinct as a result. America's farmers and ranchers are about to take a huge hit, thanks to death tax being reestablished on January one. Food chains, and thousands of other businesses are about to lay off millions of employees, thanks to obamacare. Printing and dumping 40 Billion dollars a month into our economy is causing massive inflation. High gas prices are increasing the cost of everything for middle class Americans. Obama wants to raise taxes on everybody ... and our National debt has risen to over a Trillion a year. All of this is a result of your Dear Leader, Barack Obama's incredibly stupid policies ... and yet, you brain washed obama stooges continue to defend him.

    I am very interested to see/hear the press conference today. The last one was in March. I am hoping somebody in the White House Press Corp is brave enough to ask tough questions.

    That press conference was a joke. A monkey could have answered about half of those questions.

      Can't ask serious question, he did not have a telepromter, all questions need to be forwarded to the Speechwriters office 24 hours in advance, to have time to word it correctly.

        Did you see the reporter that was practically flirting with Obama. This takes a whole new meaning to the mainstream media.

        November 15, 2012 at 7:48 pm |

    The responses did not sound very Presidential - certainly not the high-level details we should expect from a POTUS. Sounds like he was well briefed and advised before the conference. POTUS will not be able to dodge when it's his turn up on the congressional plate. Then there will be movement. Yeah, we are after you Obama - and we will get you..

    Presidetn Obama, when you meet with Mitt Romney would you please ask him this one question. Which is cheaper Birth Control or Welfare? Handing out free birth control is a gift, because your not allowing for children to be brought into the world by parents who cannot afford to take care of them. It's not the governments job to provide for all of the parents who have more children than they alone can afford to take care of. Yes the birth control is really not free, because in the end someone is paying for it but it's more affordable than welfare for thousands and thousands of children who would be brought into poverty, on top will need the governments assistance to provide for them.

    hey howard you can rhyme. How clever. Now we know why the repus are so bitter they have whiney boy romney as their leader. This guy is disgusting with all the reasons he didn't win. I guess his gifts to the one % wherent good enough. Get over it you guys lost . More than half the country voted for the president. the ten states with the best education systems and the most college grads voted for him. the ten states that have the worst education record voted for mittens. I guess thats where howard is from. So don;t try that people are not smart enough. We are we voted for the best candidate and you can just suck it up. You all sound petty and sour just like mittens.
