What’s his excuse for avoiding the press this time? He’s totally exhausted, guys! Campaigning is hard!

Campaign adviser Robert Gibbs described Pres Obama as exhausted. After a 101 rallies & 5million handshakes, not hard to believe.

That excuse was offered last night as well. Aww, call the waahm-bulance. President Obama needs a nap.

Campaign adviser Robert Gibbs says Pres Obama is exhausted from the campaign, as is everyone else. Glad it’s over, said Gibbs.

@harrietbaldwin @markknoller Every other President elected has felt the same way and still held presser. Drink some coffee & meet the press.

@markknoller Traditional post-election news conference = pesky questions.Obama will be in media avoidance mode for the next four years.

Bingo! We can’t have that, can we? He managed to avoid all of that so far, right?

So when will we have an Obama press conference over Boeing layoffs and Benghazi? @jaketapper @markknoller @twitchyteam @jimgeraghty

Yep. Will the press even ask him about the layoff bomb he’s caused?  Since we are givers, we’ll help them out. Start by talking to these small business owners on Twitter, who are now forced to lay off employees.
