Obama To Hold Rare Press Conference Friday Afternoon

Where he’ll pull his typical schtick and bloviate on questions for 5-10 minutes without actually answering any tough questions

(ABC News) The news conference scheduled for 3 p.m. EDT also comes a day before Obama leaves Washington for a nine-day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

First question: “why were you so late to your own announced PC”? I’m placing my bet on 3:22 for when he shows up. What’s your guess?

The Hill offers 10 questions for the PC, which include:

  • How significant is the Middle East terror threat, and what does it mean for U.S. progress in the fight against al Qaeda? (I’d refer you to the DoD for that answer)
  • What can the United States do about Edward Snowden, and are you concerned about more leaks? (wags finger at Putin)
  • Has the White House been forthcoming about the extent and scope of the National Security Agency surveillance? (I’d refer you to the NSA for the answer)
  • Should the Washington Redskins change their team name? (he’d love this puff question, and would expound on it at length)

How about this one from Hill reader weinermobile

How about … “Please explain to us why Congress and staffers are now exempt from some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act?”

And from PopTheLid

Can you provide us an update on Benghazi and bringing the murderers of American citizens to justice.

Politico also offers 6 questions , none of which include notions such as

  • Why are you taking yet another super expensive 1%er vacation in the middle of economic stagnation where many Americans can’t even afford to take a week off work, much less even a staycation?
  • What have you done to stop the abuses by the IRS, which is, in case you didn’t know, a federal agency under your command, which is supposedly still targeting Conservative groups?
  • When you refer to “phony scandals”, which ones are you referring to?
  • Since you think Benghazi is a “phony scandal”, would you be willing to meet with the mother of Sean Smith, killed during the action? Have you even called her?
  • Do you have any actual new and actionable ideas for the economy, rather than just speeches?
  • Why is the implementation of your signature legislation, Obamacare, such a miserable failure, and will you sign up on the exchange yourself? Follow up: why are costs spiraling out of control? Follow up: why can’t we keep our health plans and doctors after your saying over and over that we could?
  • What’s up with the growing Democrat opposition to “death panels”? Oh, and would you care to apologize to Sarah Palin for all the grief you and Dems gave her over this?

What questions would you ask?
