Today, with a superscilious smile, President-elect Barack Obama demonstrated the kind of (K)lass we will have to learn to live with over the next 4 yrs.
Q: Thank you for asking. Here’s my question. I’m wondering what you’re doing to get ready. Have you spoken to any living ex-presidents, what books you might be reading?
Everyone wants to know, what kind of dog are you going to buy for your girls? Have you decided on a private or public school for your daughters?
OBAMA: Let … let me list those off.
In terms of speaking to former presidents, I’ve spoken to all of them that are living. Obviously, President Clinton _ I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances.
In his first press conference as President-elect, Obama took the opportunity to tastelessly insult Nancy Reagan. Particularly callous, as she recently endured and is still recovering from a severe bone injury similar to that which his beloved Grandmother recently suffered.
While we expect Mrs. Reagan may have a very thick skin after all these years, we wonder if Ron Reagan Jr will be rethinking his definition of mean-spiritedness as the treatment Sarah Palin has received hits a little closer to home.
