How Does a President Mark 100 Days? With a News Conference

By Michael D. Shear
President Obama will convene a prime-time news conference -- his third -- at the White House next Wednesday, the 100th day of his presidency.

The news conference will come after returning from a trip to St. Louis to mark the occasion.

Amazing how right wing apologists such as dottydo still can't accept the fact that we have a Prez who can communicate intelligently and endeavors to keep us apprised of what's happening in DC. Suggest she move to N Korea, Iran, or some other regime where "top generals or X CIA" types would keep her very safe and (if she complained or voiced her concerns) dead.

Obama is going to talk again?

The Markets are going to nose dive.

The only two positive statements he can make is either that he has decided to step down, or that he replaced Janet Napolitano with a top general or X CIA man, so we get a sense of security.

It looks like he needs to hire more acorns to go vote for him in news polls, even that is starting to fall apart for him.

OAKS are X acorns who quit doing the job Americans won't do. It means Organizers Against Kooks and scumbots.

Is he REALLY going to pre-empt "LOST"?

Mr. President:

The Senate Armed Services Committee report on "enhanced interrogation techniques" used at Guantanamo stated at least twice that detainees were subject to "induced physical weakness and exhaustion."

The report also stated that detainees were subject to "physiological and psychological pressures" and "environmental manipulation."

Has your administration inquired as to what "induced" these effects...

...and whether detainees were exposed to microwave radiation devices such as so-called "directed energy weapon" discharges... or any other type of radiation, including X-rays, gamma rays, sonic waves, or laser "dazzlers"?

If detainees were exposed to radiation, does that not constitute "torture" and "cruel and unusual punishment" in and of itself?

OR (if links are corrupted):

Could Obama "mark the occasion" a little closer to D.C.? His trip on EARTH DAY left quite a carbon footprint:
