HELEN THOMAS ASKS OBAMA BIG AFGHAN QUESTION IN THE MIDDLE OF OIL SPILL PRESS CONFERENCE.

Wow, how old is she now? 80? I saw the documentary on her and found her to be such a hoot. She’s questioned more presidents than anybody today and she is still focused on bringing back our young men and women (fitting so close to Memorial Day).

So that was her question: When are going to bring them home and don’t give us a bunch of bulls&*^t (or “Bushisms”).

The President did his best to explain the extremists there and that they’re still a threat and that they need to be neutralized and that and that and that…

Helen talks in the Bay Area from time to time to a crowd that overwhelmingly endorses her. It’s so fun to watch her get picked to ask her questions. Looks like Obama even relishes it.
