Earlier today, Barack Obama delivered a reassuring press conference; displaying his wit, humor, and intelligence.
The President spoke on all the major hot topics in the news, such as Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Rush Limbaugh’s slut comment regarding Sandra Flute, Syria’s brutal Assad regime, and Israeli and Afghan relations.
As usual, Obama kept his cool the entire time, despite some questions from reporters that were obviously structured to spark controversy.
When asked to comment on insulting statements made against him by Mitt Romney, the President simply wished his opponent good luck for tonight’s Super Tuesday elections.
The President also proved why we love him for his wit. When asked if he thought Rush Limbaugh’s apology for his comment regarding Sandra Flute being “slut” and a “prostitute” was “heartfelt,” the President simply responded saying, “I don’t know what’s in Rush Limbaugh’s heart.”
