Barack Obama Says “No, We Can’t” to Aspiring Young Black Journalist

By Debbie Schlussel
I watched the entire video plea by 10-year-old aspiring reporter, Damon Weaver, asking the President-elect for a brief interview during Inauguration week.
And I’m surprised the Obama Administration made the boneheaded decision not to give press credentials to this cute, smart boy. That’s not to mention that this is a young Black kid, for whom Obama–we are told–is supposed to be a role model.
Yes, it’s hard to understand some of what he’s saying, but remember, he’s only ten.

If the Obama camp were smart, they would have granted young Weaver press credentials when he asked for them, and they would have publicized and promoted the heck out of it. Instead, Obama’s crew is looking like a bunch of grinches.
Remember, “Yes, We Can”? That was just a campaign slogan about opening up your wallets to pay for his stuff. For everything else, including Damon Weaver, it’s more like, “No, We Can’t.” Heartless. And more than that, just stupid.
Even Joe Biden was smarter on this. He gave an interview.
Bleeding Heart Liberals–they bleed for themselves, those who can help them, and those who hate America. But they don’t bleed for you (or this cute little kid who could have made for great press).
My guess is that the Obama gang will eventually back down . . . if they’re smart.

Must you club Obama over the head for every minor perceived infraction?

So you both agree that Obama and his pals gave this poor kid the verbial middle finger?

Squirrel : it was worse than verbial, it was proverbial !!!

I’m wondering whether there may be some sense of self-preservation at work on the part of Hussein. This 10 year old kid seems pretty articulate — remember the young girl who made a fool of Mrs. Conyers a few months ago when she called the president of the City Council shrek? Maybe Hussein is worried about the questions this kid might ask. We all know that Obama can’t think very quickly on his feet. I agree that eventually they will have to let Damon Weaver interview him, but I’ll bet they’ll make him stick to a pretty strict script, worked out in advance.

Gee, don’t you get it? Obama is for Obama, and nothing else. He’s already “playing” the President, and that will continue after Jan. 20th (he just wants to BE President, and not have to do any real work; rake in the dough, grease all his malcontent constituencies, vacation in Hawaii — full-time, if he could just find a way to do it — but none of the hard stuff).
No doubt Axelrod will convince the Messiah to grant this poor kid 10 minutes of carefully scripted interview time; what will come out will of course be vacuous hogwash, meaningless platitudes, Bush-bashing crap, pretty much whatever Axelrod can cram into Barry’s empty brain. Barry will of course be peeved by all the inconvenience: “Damn kid! Reminds me of Joe the Plumber . . .”
