Just too priceless to not report. Good ol’ Barack Obama already with his brand spanking new seal, “The Office of President Elect,” obvious as the light of day this guy can’t wait to “assume the position,” has quite rapidly found himself with his foot in his mouth so soon! First news conference, and poof! In goes the foot. Just as soon, poof! Out comes the apology. Who said there wasn’t gonna be anything humorous to dish up on the guy?
Hat tip McNorman for bringing us this fine piece.
Obama was asked at his press conference today if he’d spoken to all the “living” presidents.”
I have spoken to all of them who are living,” he responded. “I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any séances.”
News Flash: Nancy Reagan was interested in numerology. Mary Todd Lincoln held seances in the White House. Now he apologizes.
“President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan today to apologize for the careless and off handed remark he made during today’s press conference,” said transition spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter. “The President-elect expressed his admiration and affection for Mrs. Reagan that so many Americans share and they had a warm conversation.”
In the words of Napoleon? Never interrupt an enemy while he is making a mistake.
