SHOCK: WH press corps ask ZERO questions about #Obamacare at #Obama presser

Obama's media cheerleaders

”2, 4, 6, 8 – who do we appreciate?!”

Not one. Zilch. Nada.  Absolutely pathetic, especially when you consider the Obamacare roll-out is what central issue is to the shutdown standoff between the GOP and Democrats.  Via Politico (hat tip):

President Barack Obama sustained an hour-long press conference today without a single question about his signature healthcare law and the glitches that continue to plague the insurance exchanges — a point that frustrated several conservatives.

“Explain to me how in a dozen questions the second biggest story of the week, the healthcare.gov debacle, doesn’t even come up,” Brendan Buck, the press secretary for House Speaker John Boehner, asked in an email to POLITICO.

“Questions from WH press corps are pathetic,” Brit Hume, the Fox News analyst tweeted. “As of this moment, not a single tough or challenging inquiry.”

Twitchy.com documented numerous complaints from Tweeters about the softball questions presser, including Hume’s thoughts as well those of Fox News Special Report anchor Bret Baier and Fox News national correspondent Adam Housley.  Twitchy also noted that CBS News’ WH correspondent Mark Knoller was the only journo in the bunch who asked the President a hard hitting question. Accusations of raaacism to follow, I’m sure.

I sure will be glad when a Republican is President again – for a multitude of reasons, among them the possibility that the press will finally wake up and hold one accountable again, albeit with their typical left wing slant. Sigh ….

    Ya don’t suppose the questioners were seeded in the audience, do ya?

    Naw, THAT just wouldn’t happen with such a fine, upstanding piece of pig poop like Duh-1 now, would it?

  2. ALman says:

    If they’re not going to ask any questions, why are they there? Props? Stooges? Peanut gallery?

  3. To say the media is carrying water for Obhammud is like saying the Titanic had a bad voyage.

  4. Drew the Infidel says:

    An item not reported is that Obhammud refused to take questions from those reporters in the first three rows, the TV reporters. When asked about such a procedure he replied he was only “going down my list” and those with any complaints should “talk to Jay (Carney)”.

    A fair question: Who the hell is running things over there?

    First we get “leading from behind”. But now we get “leading from beyond”, as in beyond the pale of stupidity.
