...at the Obama Presser. Helen Thomas and her "so-called" terrorists:
QUESTION: Mr. President, do you think that Pakistan and — are maintaining the safe havens in Afghanistan for these so-called terrorists? And also, do you know of any country in the Middle East that has nuclear weapons?
And Michael Fletcher of the Washington Post on A-Rod:
QUESTION: Yeah, thank you, sir. What's you're reaction to Alex Rodriguez's admission that he used steroids as a member of the Texas Rangers? First this Washington Post clown: There are 50 million people watching you. We are in a worldwide war on terrorism with two major fronts in Iraq and Ashcanistan, the economy is tanking and this is as good as you got? Just once I would like to see the president say, "With all the stuff I got going on what makes you think I give a rat's toenail about some roided-up ballplayer?"
And then there's Helen Thomas. Let me put this delicately - Ms. Thomas did not abandon a thriving career as a fashion model to be a White House correspondent. She has been in the White House press corps since January of 1961. In January 1961 I was still trying to figure out how to use the potty. Now I am getting mail from AARP.
Helen "so called terrorists" Thomas was trying to get the president to admit on record what is an open secret, that Israel has nukes. And notice that Obama blew her off when she tried to follow up, which I can guess was something like, "why can't Iran have nukes when those evil Zionists have it?"
