This is surprising and good to see. Calvin Woodward, an AP reporter, covered President Obama's press conference tonight and actually challenged Obama's statements. Good sign, journalists doing their job again instead of shamelessly promoting this unaccomplished, socialist president.
"President Barack Obama had it both ways Monday when he promoted his stimulus plan in Indiana. He bragged about getting Congress to produce a package with no pork, yet boasted it will do good things for a Hoosier highway and a downtown overpass, just the kind of local projects lawmakers lard into big spending bills."
"Obama's sales pitch on the enormous package he wants Congress to make law has sizzle as well as steak. He's projecting job creation numbers that may be impossible to verify and glossing over some ethical problems that bedeviled his team."
Woodward contrasted Obama claims with the facts. Delightful! More, more!
I sat through through the press conference tonight. Found it boring and vague, Mr. Obama blathered on with long, rambling answers to reporters, saying nothing specific except for repeating the absurd claim that the Stimulus Bill would create 4 million jobs. Really? Where does that number come from? Obama blamed the previous administration for the current economic situation and claimed that the Republicans are being partisan (unlike Pelosi and Reid?!?).
Whiney and defensive, I thought. Decidedly un-presidential he is.
