This Just In: Fox News Reports Obama Has Not Held Public News Conference in Six Months...

Coulda fooled me. Seems the guy is on television more than that Progressive Insurance chick (and is it just me, or do any of you find her curiously arousing, too?).

Now, I wonder how the define "Public News Conference"? I mean, I thought when the Prezzz hits the airwaves, and there's reporters there, it's a News Conference. Which happens to be a five-times-a-day occurrence, it seems.

Or, are we talking about an "official Obama News Conference" defined as "Barry gets to talk about what he wants to, how he wants to, without having to answer any questions and no input from the Press..." instead of the other kind where he has to talk about would-be terrorists, and why Janet Napolitano hasn't been flogged yet, or where those 6-million jobs "created or saved" are, or why thirty million dollars went to a non-existent Congressional district to study the environmental impact of unicorn farts?

Anyways, I think the claim that there hasn't been a News Conference for six months is spurious,considering we've had a solid year of the Extended Obama Infomercial. Perhaps instead of bemoaning the fact that there hasn't been a News Conference, we should perhaps be thinking about whether we need to see the President anymore than we already do.

I mean, he's getting wall-to-wall coverage, and never has anything interesting to say, anyway, and he just makes you nostalgic for the days of G.W. Bush, so maybe we don't need News Conferences, after all?

But then, what would the Press do? I mean, besides make up the news, like they already do?

They say "absence makes the heart grow fonder..." Perhaps Barack Obama could put that adage to the test? Or at least come back when he has something intelligence and necessary to say.
