I was at a meeting and didn't see any. You mean he had a LIST of people he took questions from ?????????

I watched the beginning of Nightline - Stephanopolus of course gave him an A- and talking about how cool and calm and together he was.

What a joke.

Yes, Winnie. He had a prepared list of reporters that he took questions from. That blew my mind!


And about the cool & collected - he had a massive teleprompter set up in the back of the room........................

Well - if he had a list of reporters, then he also had a list of their questions, so he could have prepared replies ready on the teleprompter. That is ridiculous.

Nightline made a big deal over how there were no questions on Iraq or Afganistan and how great that was, and how that hadn't happened in the last eight years, yada, yada, yad........

Disgusting!

But he can't go hunting - gun ownership and pursuit of live animals using said guns are strictly right-wing activities. wink

and yet the first reporter expressed surprise and shock that she was called on, and then gave him a softball question about "has race been an issue in white house back office discussions"

Yes, all questions HAD to be pre-submitted and approved. They were then called on in the order that best suited BO, and allowed to ask only the question that was handed to them.

What I found interesting is that noone from the New York Times or several other major media outlets were allowed to ask questions, but foreign papers and Ebony were. It was almost as if he was snubbing the US Press.

Not that I know of. I've never seen any other president have all the answers to questions given to him on a teleprompter before.

I have seen reporters ask questions again and again and presidents look like a deer in the headlights because they don't have an answer though, indicating that it didn't work this way.

But then again, we've never had a president who insisted on being on TV as much as he possibly can before. We've never had a sitting president feel the need to do late night television, post his NCAA picks on ESPN and CBS for a television appearance, etc.

It seems odd that Obama would treat the U.S. media as poorly as he has been since they are the ones that got him elected in the first place. Sort of a "don't bite the hand that feeds" situation.

Did you see who he allowed questions from, and as importantly, who he did not? Seriously? Are you that dense? When the folks from your own press you are allowing questions from aren't even daily papers, but rather folks like Ebony and Teen Beat, you're snubbing real news.
