Here is great video of CBS News White House Correspondent Major Garrett repeatedly questioning President Obama today at his Press Conference about why he insists the debt-ceiling be raised without negotiation or discussion. Garrett pointed out that is opposite the entire history of the debt-ceiling, and he reminded Obama that Obama himself refused to vote for an increase in the debt-ceiling when he was a U.S. Senator and George W. Bush was President.
Obama clearly did not appreciate the tough questioning, and gave one of his typical rambling, non-answers.
Here is video of CBS News’ Bob Schieffer announcing today on “Face the Nation” that National Journal’s Major Garrett is going to take over as CBS News’ Chief White House Correspondent. Garrett filled that role previously with Fox News before leaving for National Journal. He replaces Norah O’Donnell, who has moved to CBS This Morning.
Garrett is a good journalist.
(The Hill) — Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) again insisted that he has no interest in and would not accept an offer to join the Republican ticket as a vice presidential candidate — but not without a stumble that some are suggesting was a Freudian slip.The popular Florida lawmaker, who has long been mentioned in the discussion of potential 2012 vice presidential candidates, said during a forum hosted by the National Journal that he wasn’t interested in the position.“I don’t want to be the vice president,” Rubio said.…But any attempt to squelch speculation that Rubio might be vying for the job was washed out when the senator made an inopportune stumble shortly thereafter.“If I do a good job as a vice president — I’m sorry, as senator — I’ll have the chance to do all sorts of things,” Rubio said.

Here is video of National Journal’s Major Garrett on CBS News this morning where he said President Obama’s strategy to deflect criticism on rising gas prices “is not working,” despite his attempts to ridicule Republicans about wanting to do more drilling in the United States. Obama has tried to tell Americans that increased drilling won’t solve the problem, and that he has actually increased drilling. But Americans know Obama’s radical environmental agenda is keeping us from accessing the vast oil resources we have in America. The rising prices are hurting Obama, and his strategy to deceive the American people is not working.
