Helen Thomas: Town Halls Are Staged

From C-SPAN via YouTube:

Of course we have no respect whatsoever for either of the so-called journalists, Chip Reid or Ms. Thomas.

But at least it is mildly entertaining to see the White House called on their phony events, for once.

(Thanks to Melly for the heads up.)

    I think our State Media was incensed that the KosKid was called a journalist – and that they weren’t let on to his presence.

    Isn’t it nice to know that The One ™ has no regard for anyone but himself – maybe that is why the Queen of Mean is so mean!

  2. Town halls…

    Perhaps a lottery would be appropriate.. nothing more representative than random selection by say.. umm Helen Thomas Pulling the bingo balls out of Mr Gibbs sack to find out whom might attend?

    THEN a lottery for attendees who wish to ask a question er.. somewhat in the same manner.

      “Helen Thomas Pulling the bingo balls out of Mr Gibbs sack to find out whom might attend?”

      My mind wandered and now my eyes are watering. My sphincter is a little tight too.

    Gawd…could it finally be that the lickspittle press is starting to turn on Barry?

    Now if we could get the Reid’s and Thomases in the press corps to use that same inquisition on more substantive issues such as federal spending, government takeover of industry, and cap and trade, we US citizens would be better served.

    • no.. Gibbs pissed em off by hogging the last donut.

    • Howard Roark says:

      Gibbs really is a smug d*ckhead, isn’t he? PR says it best, below. He comes off as an overeducated brat. Like his boss, he tries to use sarcasm, but fails miserably.

      Barry uses his catch phrases like, “Look, I’ve got better things to do than run GM and Chrysler, but it has to be done”, while looking at us with the same countenance Gibbs tries on Reid and Thomas. Very superior, you know. Condescension is their main emotion.

    • jobeth says:

      HR..I also noticed when he attempted to make his condescending “jokes”, I didn’t hear any chuckles coming from the peanut gallery. LOL

    • neocon mom says:

      Got a little tense in there for a moment.
      But one of the left’s primary attributes is that they conflate condescension and intellect. Hence their arsenal is filled with snark and cynicism.

    Surely this Gibbs clown is the stupidest person to ever serve on a White House staff.

    It’s clear he not only doesn’t understand that somebody could object to an infomercials billed as an open Townhall, he thinks challenging the idea is absurd. It’s beyond politics. The man is simply butt stupid. He is probably mentally retarded.

    But aside from that, it’s wonderful that the arrogant to the fifth power WH is now even contemptuous of the media and their silly questions. It means there is a chance, when unemployment crosses 20% officially and 50% of the press have lost their jobs, that the hollow cheekers may stir themselves from their usual supine positition to actually suggest that something strange is going on in the country.

    • That’s because all of the liberal news media will be out of business. All the conservative news media will still be around because they are so small and yet have such a large following. Then we will really start to get the truth.

    I honestly LOVE this!!! LOL

    When the “in the tank” press can tell they are being hoodwinked…and find the gonads to complain about it there is a glimmer of hope.

    “poor” Gibbs kept trying to defer them till “later”…so maybe he can get his “talking” orders on how to answer the unanswerable. Well, it IS answerable…but not with an answer Gibbs wanted to admit to.

    “And the worm turns”…we can only hope.

    Well this is rich isn’t it? But seriously, tell us something we didn’t already know. This is on par with the CNN Breaking News Alert that arrived into my email box saying that TMZ was reporting that Michael Jackson’s kids aren’t his biological children. Life is so funny.

    Gibb’s hee hee’s giggle, squeaks, interpretated in English translates to:

    “Don’t you reporters understand Obama is a dummy? Have you any idea what I’ve gone & am going through 5 years now, a 24/7 venquilatrist for a dumb manikin that’s limited to uttering and stuttering “duh..uh..ah..um.”
    Don’t you reporters see my hand gestures, while I speak? It is a habit from 5 years of making Obama’s jaws yak, while at the same time holding a stack of index cards in the other hand. Didn’t you see me at work with all the Muslim smear tactics, and Rev. Wright issues.
    I spent 3 days at the National Convention, rehearsing Obama’s speech. Working on his walk (he had a bit of strut that needed to go) , working his mug to look up and give the appearance he was speaking to massive crowds, making his hand and finger, wave and point at precise moments. Habits are hard to break, the nose still too high in the air, and a manikin defect of scratching his nose. .
    On top of that I had to be a vanquilitrist for another dummy! His wife Michelle.
    Didn’t you reporters read the Wall Street Journal? I was Obama’s “enforcer”. I went 8 hours without eating or using the restroom, making the dummy seem like he was a real and smart.
    Did you reporters ever stop to think, that I am a Master Venquilatrist now for more Dummy’s Obama has chosen who don’t pay taxes. Yet alone a President that gives more talks and interviews than any president in history. I created Obama. I’m unreplacable.
    And you reporters should know I was on my high school debate team, so I know how to answer your easy questions, but I also know what to say, when I don’t want to answer a question. Hee hee. At least I didn’t go “duh..um.ah.”


    • canary says:

      OH! And I did his wardrobe. At the convention Obama and Michelle argued for one-half hour on what tie he should wear, and decided to wear my lucky tie. 358.

  8. MinnesotaRush says:

    I knew a kid like Gibbs in high school. He came across as one of those all-knowing, better than you, condescending pri_ks, too.

    Several of us saw to it that he got his butt kicked regularly.

    Good observation Canary. Notice how Gibbs and Obama start giggling and making light when a question makes them uncomfortable, the audience laughs along and they get to completely elude the question/subject. Note here that the press corp doesn’t laugh along. Gig’s up Gibbs! They’re on to you.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      I wish someone would have thrown a glass of water on the Gibbster.

      “I’M MELTING!!!!!”

  10. Confucius says:

    CBS must be pissed the White House has favored ABC and NBC over them.

    And as for Helen Thomas. Who knew that decaying Ork was still alive?

  11. w3bgrrl says:

    How telling. Gibbs’ attempt at sarcasm revealed a glimmer of truth. She says, “you don’t have any answers.” He responds, “because I didn’t know you were going to ask a question, Helen.”

    Exactly how many giggly and sarcastic White House Press Secretaries has this nation had? I can only name one.

  12. navymom says:

    I am not usually a fan of Helen Thomas, but “You Go Girl!” I am not getting too excited about all of this. I am wondering how long this moment of conciousness will last? Now the press must decide if they will take the blue pill or the red pill.
