Obama flashes irritation in press room - Jonathan Martin and Carrie Budoff Brown - Politico.com
I guess he expected cheering.President Obama made a surprise visit to the White House press corps Thursday night, but got agitated when he was faced with a substantive question.
Asked how he could reconcile a strict ban on lobbyists in his administration with a Deputy Defense Secretary nominee who lobbied for Raytheon, Obama interrupted with a knowing smile on his face.
"Ahh, see," he said, "I came down here to visit. See this is what happens. I can't end up visiting with you guys and shaking hands if I'm going to get grilled every time I come down here."
No, you can't just come visit without having substantive questions being asked... Welcome to the presidency Mr. President.
There are a lot of questions people want answered... now... not when you feel like it. Expect the unexpected.
The election illustrated this guy isn't very good on his feet. This is simply further evidence.
