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 Sen. John McCain responding to President Obama’s “come after me” remark at his Press Conference yesterday. Obama was responding with anger to word that Sen. McCain had said he would block any nomination of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to be Secretary of State. McCain called Obama’s response, “juvenile,” and then made it clear he will be coming after Obama by detailing Obama’s conflicting statements on what happened in the Benghazi Terrorist Attack.
Here is video from President Obama’s Press Conference today, his first in 8 months, where he was confronted by Fox News’ Ed Henry about Benghazi. Henry asked him if he issued any orders to send help to the Americans under attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, pointing out that the father of one of the dead said he feels like his son dialed 911 and got no help. Obama avoided the question, with Henry following up, not letting him off the hook. Obama used his “offended” response, saying “if anyone thinks” he didn’t do everything possible blah, blah, blah. But he never described any specific orders to send help – which was in the region – to help the Americans who where under attack for many hours.
