Obama vs. the 4th Estate

When asked by the press about his nominees, last night President Obama cut the interview short. "I came down here to visit," he said. "We will be having a press conference."


With all the work a sycophantic Fourth Estate did to get Obama elected, you'd think he'd be more understanding of a reporter working a story. And what with the economy going from sour to curdled, why wouldn't he help out a presumptive member of his base by providing a snippet of a reply that could help the guy keep his job?

Fortunately another reporter in the room stayed with the script -- after witnessing two of his colleagues receiving the Presidential brushoff, a cameraman called out, “I’d like to say it one more time: ‘Mr. President.’ ”
