You Stay Classy, Baracky...

Way to show good grace, by making fun of a 90 year old ex-First Lady in your first news conference:

WASHINGTON -- In his preparation to become president, Barack Obama said Friday that he has had discussions with all former presidents - or almost all of them.

"I've spoken to all of them that are living," the president-elect said in a lighter moment during his first press conference since his victory.

"I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances," he joked.

Maybe he meant to bash Hillary Clinton?

It actually wasn't Nancy Reagan who was linked to conversations with the dead; it was Obama's top Democratic challenger for the presidency, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.

Nancy Reagan consulted an astrologer to help set her husband's schedule, wrote former White House chief of staff Donald T. Regan. The revelation created a furor and President Reagan even broke with his policy of not commenting on books by former White House staffers. "No policy or decision in my mind has ever been influenced by astrology," Reagan said.

In his book "The Choice," Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward described how Clinton consulted with a spiritual adviser who led her through imaginary conversations with her personal hero, Eleanor Roosevelt. Newsweek magazine, which was promoting the book, characterized the visits as "seances" ....

What is it with Obama and woman? Is "The One" a closeted misogynist, perhaps? Or is it something he just picked up at Reverand Wright's weekly hatred-filled revival services?

May your wife, the American-lovin' Michelle Obama, recieve the same treatment that you seem to enjoy inflicting upon women...

Classy? What was so classy the way the left-wing illuminati tore down the GOP? That was anything but class.
