Is the Honeymoon Already Over?

Is it possible that Obama's press pass may actually have an expiration date? Here Campbell Brown takes Obama to task for derisively dismissing the "tough questions" about his apparent change of heart regarding Hillary Clinton's foreign policy experience/expertise. Now, granted, the toughness of this question must be judged on a sliding scale, but still . . . is this a sign of things to come? Is that possible?


  1. My favorite part:

    "Mr. President-elect, reporters we hope are going to ask you a lot of annoying questions over the next four years. Get used to it. - That is the job of the media, to hold you accountable..."

    Naturally, I can see why he'd be confused - from a perspective of "trust-people-to-do-what-you've-seen-them-do".

    Obama (and I) had clearly been going with the 2-year-example of the media's "job" being more of the "blow" variety.

    You might not be surprised by a prostitute expecting "thank-you" - but really, "accountability"?

    He already left your network's $20 on the night-stand, dear - I think he mostly expects you to STFU now...

  2. Yeah, "Nice little Network you have here. It'd be a shame if something happened to it"

  3. Why is it that only the babes have any spunk anymore? Ever see Megan Kelly get wound up at Fox News? Then, there is Sarah Palin...

    It has been so long since I watched CNN, I didn't even know Campbell Brown had her own show. Perhaps I should check it out. ◄Dave►


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
