The President Packs the Press Corps
Give it up Dana Milbank. Seriously. Are you really going to compare Nico Pitney asking President Obama to some of the bullshit that came out of the Bush press conferences?
Do you know why the White House called Pitney and told him to ask his question about Iran? It's because that's all that he's been concentrating on, pretty much night and day, for the last couple weeks. Pitney's question was the only difficult question Obama had to answer in that press conference. Questions about whether or not he's smoking? Really? Believe me, I don't give a flying fuck if he is or isn't.
Can the press corps at least try to display half the professionalism that Nico Pitney has? Or is that too much to ask?
