Upset CBS reporter to Barack Obama: “Any plans for a real press conference?”

May 21, 2010

    According to the official White house schedule the president of the United States and Mexican President Felipe Calderon were scheduled to hold a joint press conference yesterday afternoon, but when both men had finished speaking they walked away without taking any questions from the press. This hardly constitutes a press conference.

  This is becoming the norm as of late with Barack Obama, he has not taken questions from the press in I don’t even know how long. The press is finally beginning to get tired of Barack Obama’s slights, after all Barack Obama owes the press for his becoming president. If the press had done their job in the first place and had reported on all of Barack Obama’s radical associations this man would never have been elected. But they ignored all of the questions of his past, thusly ensuring his election. They obviously thought that Barack Obama owed them and that he would be the open and honest president that he promised he would be, they have nobody to blame for themselves for their naivety.

  Barack Obama was friendly with the press when he needed them, but now that he feels as if he doesn’t need them he suddenly does not care about them. The press thought that Barack Obama really liked them, but in reality he was only using them as a pawn in his game. This has to be humbling for the media.

 Many of us have been wondering how long it would take the press to turn on Barack Obama and we may be seeing the first signs that this is about to happen. An upset reporter from CBS sarcastically yelled to the president as he and Felipe Calderon walked away, “any plans for a real press conference?”

  This may just be a small crack in the relationship between Barack Obama and the media, but it is a crack and if Barack Obama doesn’t do something to appease the media, it could turn into a fissure that will grow over time. Barack Obama may be falling out of favor with the very people who are responsible for his election.

    Oh please don’t do anything Obama. Please! Let the media come to the realization that they have been thrown under the bus just like Jeremiah Wright!

    Ah yes, the bus. Does anyone know how many times Obama has walked away and completely ignored the press at the end of a “statement” or whatever he calls them? I don’t usually watch those, b/c I really cannot stand to see the man walk. It’s such an affectation. Did he ever hear the phrase ‘act natural’? THere are about three that I know of, so I’m sure it’s at least 2x that many. If a republican POTUS did that, well… we can all fill in that blank.
