Politico: ‘Hard questions await Obama at news conference’

First question: Dear President Awesome, how awesomely awesome was it to be re-elected?

Sure, he’ll face a tough question perhaps, if by chance he calls on a real reporter. We know ABC’s Jake Tapper won’t be there (he’s on  a book tour), so unless Ed Henry of Fox gets called on (unlikely), don’t expect any so-called “tough” questions. These clowns had four years to ask tough questions and we never saw one.

The fallout from former CIA Director David Petraeus’s extramarital affair has spawned the type of sensational media feeding frenzy that Obama detests. But when he holds his first full-scale news conference in eight months Wednesday, Obama will have to explain how he plans to re-create his national security team, what he knows about the burgeoning scandal and why he didn’t get wind of it sooner.

It’s simply not plausible he had no knowledge of the Petraeus affair. Yet this press corps wants us to believe Obama is so sheltered from reality he never knew a thing.

Here is POLITICO’s cheat sheet of questions that the president is likely to face:

1. Do you believe the FBI should have told you and Congress sooner about the investigation that led Gen. Petraeus to resign?

They’re so in the tank for this boob their first question already assumes he had no knowledge and allows him to play the victim. So to summarize: Don’t expect a single tough question. Besides, he’d never answer them anyway. Here’s a very simple question for the esteemed press corps: Why did you repeatedly lie that the terror attack in Benghazi was a protest against a video nobody ever saw and why is the maker of that clip in prison?

    From bandit: “Do you think Jill Kelly has a nice rack?”

    The Jill Kelly who does all the porn movies does. Just don’t look too hard at her face. She looks like she needs a garden trowel to remove her makeup at night.

    The toughest question Obama will have to answer from reporters; Mr. President, should I kiss your left or right a$$ cheek?
