CBS News' Chip Reid Confronted WH Press Sec. Robert Gibbs

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs today being confronted by CBS News' Chip Reid over the fact that Obama has not had a Press Conference since last July where he actually took questions from the Press Corps at the White House. Reid specifically asked if Obama was going to take questions on the attempted Terror Attack aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas Day.

Gibbs said Obama has no plans to answer questions, and acted perturbed that the press would even ask why Obama is refusing to take the tough questions on what happened in addition to just making speeches and releasing statements through surrogates like Gibbs.

It appears that more in the White House Press Corps are beginning to tire of the whole "Hope" and "Change" approach to governing.

Obama won't take questions from the media because a question may slip in that hasn't been cleared by him or his staff. Unless it can be choreographed, he won't do it.

Yup, an open and transparent guy, that's Obama.

Not only transparency but how about accountability to the American People. His job is to SERVE the American People, not avoid answering questions pertaining to our safety. It's not like we are trying to find out the combination to the Nuclear Football.

No obama like everybody else in Washington think they are prima donna's and are accountable to no one. It time to change everyone, all 536 of them, all their staff and Fredo Biden.
