Awwwwww, poor media morons.

Actually, Obama has given just as many press
conferences as Bush in the same time and more of them have been open to questions than Bush's.

I have to ask this are you intelligently challenged?? Jesus READ the article, I quote
http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/02/19/us-...

Martha Joynt Kumar, a political scientist at Towson University in Maryland who studies the presidency, said Obama held only 107 brief question-and-answer encounters with the media in his first four years, compared with 354 by George W. Bush in his first term.

WHY are you DEMS so STUPUD!!!!! Reflects you voter Base huh…

To add. Its not even ABOUT how many pres conferences its WHAT the LIB media ask in questions to a Rep President

Lib Media asking Lib Obama questions is like a spelling bee spelling being 95% of the word is spelled out by the press and Obama only needs to fill 5% so he looks SMART,,

I remember this in 91, when BUSH went to a school Lib Media thought this was WRONG and the Dems had Bush up on a congressional hearing . But when Obama did the EXACT same thing Lib Media touted how Wondefull it was!!!

http://www.examiner.com/article/1991-bush-spe...
On October 1, 1991, president George H.W. Bush delivered a speech to schoolchildren, almost identical to the one that President Obama is scheduled to deliver today. Far from being accepted as a motivating message, the Democrat controlled congress immediately ordered a General Accounting Office investigation of the administration, convened extensive hearings, and summoned senior Bush officials to Capitol Hill to testify.

The Washington Post published a front-page story slamming the speech as a partisan political ploy. "The White House turned a Northwest Washington junior high classroom into a television studio and its students into props," the Post reported at the time.

That’s what the Diff here are Skippy….

CBS NEWS DIRECTOR: OBAMA MUST 'DESTROY THE GOP'
'If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat'
Published: 01/19/2013 at 6:04 PM
(Newsbusters)“The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.”
So astonishingly wrote CBS News political director John Dickerson at Slate Friday evening in a piece astonishingly titled “Go for the Throat! Why if he wants to transform American politics, Obama must declare war on the Republican Party.”
Dickerson is no longer interested in Obama trying bipartisanship in his second term – as if that’s what the President did in his first.

Yes, but I do not walk with my head down kissing Obama's AZZ like you libs do. There were several news reporters got FIRED for the same thing that this president of CBS has done and if there is such a thing as "equal rights" then he should be FIRED.

Can you walk backwards, or only with your head down kissing AZZ?

The reason is that your skulls are devoid of brain matter.

By the way, Cash, show me just one of your posts that contains "intelligent debate".(Stomping out you age doesn't count.)

Dearie, I never said it was the republicants whining and whinging and moaning and whining about not covering a golf game.

The irony - read the word IRONY again - is that the republicants complain that this president gets too much publicity - what was one of those fux bobblehead's comment about flossing!?

Hope you comprendez-vous?
