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.
