CBS Reporter Shouts at Obama "Any Plans for a Real Press Conference" - Video 5/19/10

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.

Dear Mr. Levin,
Just have the solution to the immigrationthe immigration. Please consider it could actually work. I chose you to give it to for a darn good reason. What if,in the name of compassion,we allowed the illegals,the modern day slave generation,asindiniduals(not as a class) only one very temporary and specific right? The right to sue their employer for back wages owed,vacations,sick pay; andd, of course,punitive damages: I believe the trial lawyers would jump at it, and the problem would be resolved within six months. The employers would drop them like hot potatos. Wouldn't that be the most "compassionate" thing to do,don't you think? I can't afford your book yet,but have been listening to talk radio-allof it since 18 years ago,including since you started.The info on the Mexican Law did it. As of tomorrow, I will have been sober for 18 years-don't ever underestimate an old drunk like me that chooses life in the dry lane. And thank you for the interview with Roger Ailes you posted-it brought tears to my eyes...
Thank you and your brothers and sisters(Dr. Laura) in talk radio for what you do and what you have done for me...
Respectfully, Morgan Schmoot
