Ya Gotta Love Newt!!!

Reacting to the questions posed during Wednesday's presidential news conference, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich expressed disappointment with the White House press corps, telling FNC's Greta Van Sustere:

"I think the Washington White House press corps has taken such a pathetic dive with this President that they ought to be part of his PR firm. I mean it's embarrassing to watch. How many reporters have said to him, you know, "so why are you releasing these terrorists in the United States?" How many reporters have said to him, you know, "why are you so confused about whether or not you want to in fact go after and prosecute people who've never historically been prosecuted before?" Why are so few of them saying to him: "Gosh, doesn't it worry you to have $9 trillion in debt being projected under your administration?"

I mean, there is no tough, serious engagement. It's like watching a collection of, you know -- if you didn't know better, you'd think that he was practicing with his own public affairs people for the future press conference. These look like practice sessions. They don't look like real press conferences."

What is wrong with the press? Is their faith in Obama unshakable? Don't they have any doubts?

They are still in that infatuation phase with Obama. I wish it would end SOON!

Happy Mother's Day!

Beth - thanks for the Mother's Day greeting :)
Sorry, I have been bogged down with everyday stuff & haven't been able to squeeze time in to blog or comment. I'd love to do it more often, but never enough time in the day.
RK & Beth - the press elected Obama, they have to make sure he succeeds to save face. I don't know if the infatuation phase will ever end???
