Default Obama apologizes to Nancy Reagan

I caught it as soon as he said it. I wonder, if he likes going off the cuff a bit, just what awaits us in those slips of the tongue?

Sad, actually, because from what I saw (I was at primanti's at the time, reading it on the bottom of the screen) he actually did a pretty good job. He squarely placed himself center-left today, fell into a proper role of president-elect showing due respect to president Bush.

He came across not quite as tough as I would have wanted on foreign policy, but a heck of a lot tougher than many democrats seem to be now-a-days.

However, that backhanded shot at Nancy Reagan which, when thought through was actually a shot at Hillary Clinton (see below) will probably be referenced in the future, and not in a good way.

I guess it takes a little while to switch from campaign mode to president mode.

Quote:
Obama apologizes to Nancy Reagan for 'careless' joke

President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan this afternoon to apologize for a joke about her having held "sťances" in the White House, an Obama aide said.
“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."
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 sťances."
He was apparently confusing stories about Reagan's consulting with an astrologer with those about other First Ladies -- from Mary Todd Lincoln to Hillary Clinton -- who tried to make contact with figures from the past.

It's more than the inability to tell a joke. You don't want to start out your presidential career by being remembered as being insulting and insensitive to a former first lady and the wife of one of the most beloved presidents in recent history. Especially if you want people to respect your own first lady. Not a good first impression. He needs to be careful of these thing.......one or two more little gaffes like that and he will always be portrayed being arrogant and insensitve. Go figure......this out of the mouth that made the "guns and religion" comment.

I can't imagine why people would consider him arrogent and insensitive.

Okay seriously though, time to fire up the Impeacher 3000 and set it on idle.
