Did Obama just quit?

After watching the following, I think it’s a legitimate question. This afternoon Obama met with Bill Clinton. Afterward he held his third press conference this week, this time with Clinton by his side. Then this happened:

All is forgiven, Monica. Bill is back!

I guess Obama abandoning his post is some sort of brilliant strategy. Or maybe he just doesn’t want the job anymore. Maybe he’s finally realizing that the more he talks, the worse things get for him.

Say what you want about Sarah Palin quitting her job, but at least she finished her own press conference.

P.S. Jon Ward: “In terms of Washington political drama, Friday was an instant classic.”

P.P.S. James Taranto: “I was at the 2004 Democratic Convention, where I watched Bill Clinton deliver a very effective, though completely wrongheaded, attack on the Bush tax rates. Today I turn on the TV to see Bill Clinton holding a White House news conference to endorse those same tax rates. It’s great to see him come around, even if his return to the presidential podium runs counter to the spirit of the 22nd Amendment.”

P.P.P.S. Iowahawk called it, two whole years ago: “Ending weeks of speculation and rumors, President-Elect Barack Obama today named Bill Clinton to join his incoming administration as President of the United States, where he will head the federal government’s executive branch.”

    I do not know what is worse. That Obama is clearly the most whipped man in public life ever? That Obama could not speak extemporaneously without a teleprompter and hence could not stand like a man alongside Clinton defending his policies and instead had to defer to Big Daddy? Or that this is the girly man that America has to stand up to Putin?

    This is just more typical Obama…hides behind women’s skirts (wife Michelle will be mad if the POTUS is busy doing his job?? Really?) and abdicating his authority and responsibilities to anyone, not himself, probably so he can play golf, basketball or take a vacation.

    I hope he had fun at his little party.

    Obama has a long term history of giving up or dodging every tough job he has ever had. Bill and Hillary are now in charge. All the coolaid drinkers didn’t know Obama was a quiter, a slackard.

    The Slacker President. The Na President. Why Such a Socialist Slacker?

    This presidency is a sham. With all the previous presidents who shaped the office in such a way as to lend some credence then along comes an abstraction to smear and /or deface it. It is no better than a graffiti artist painting over a classical painting for personal gratification, IMO

    All I saw at the presser was a student and a professor where Obama was the student or was it Bill the alpha male taking control.

    Obama is in way over his head. He is clueless & incompetent in leading this country and this shameless press conference where he literally walks out proves it.
