Obama -- bringing the country together by making tasteless Nancy Reagan jokes

In his Friday press conference, Barack Obama made a tasteless joke about Nancy Reagan and seances, raising questions about his sincerity in bringing a new tone to Washington and reaching out to Republicans. This is from the McClatchy account:
He said also had consulted with all living former presidents, who were gracious, and joked that "I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances."

Obama later apologized. OK, I'm glad he apologized, but geez, what a no-class joke.

You're talking about a prima-donna who is so immature that he can't help but do childish things like flip a woman off behind her back. Prepare for a lot more of this kind of crap from the Messiah. It's what he is about.

Change? New tone in Washington?

He apologized? Really? Stop the press, I think that is a first. And did he actually hold himself accountable for what he said and did? Maybe a staff member fed him the line--another person under the bus.

Well, at least at 47, Obama isn't likely to have Alzheimer's while STILL IN OFFICE.
