Here is video of President Obama walking away from the press after a Rose Garden "Press Conference" in which Obama took only one question from the Press - and that was from Univision. Obama has been dodging full-scale press conferences for nearly a year now, and CBS Reporter Chip Reid shouted out as Obama walked away with Mexican President Calderon, "Any plans for a real press conference?"
THE CAUCUS: So when the president hosted a “news conference” in the Rose Garden with the president of Mexico on Wednesday, Mr. Reid thought maybe this time Mr. Obama would take questions. Instead, Mr. Obama allowed only a single question from the American news media, calling on a reporter from the New York-based Univision, making it unlikely that he would be asked about Tuesday’s anti-incumbent election results.
Sure enough, Mr. Obama was asked about the Arizona law aimed at stopping illegal immigrants, a law he had already denounced in his opening remarks and was happy to denounce again in response to the question. He did not have to offer his thoughts on the loss of an ally, Senator Arlen Specter, in Pennsylvania’s Democratic primary, or on any other topic.
As the event ended and Mr. Obama swiveled to head back into the Oval Office, Mr. Reid tried again and shouted out a question about the elections.
Mr. Obama ignored him. Maybe he meant later in course of the week. . . . MORE
Is the Press about to get their fill of Obama's arrogance? The rest of them should join Chip Reid and decide together to hound Obama with every question opportunity by asking him this very question: "Any plans for a real press conference?" But they won't.
