This is open?

The President's press secretary displays the Obama open access policy while talking about the loss of the Democrat supermajority:

"Broadly speaking, can you talk about the difference between 59 and 60 votes in the Senate and what that means for the president's agenda this year?"

"Broadly, it's one," Gibbs answered.

Will Obama hold a news conference Wednesday to discuss the results?

"Be here around 10 a.m. If we're not here, start without us."

"Is there something you could have done better," asked Sheryl Stolberg of the New York Times, so that "you wouldn't be in the situation that you're in right now?"

"Sheryl," Gibbs replied, "I'll read this transcript and think there's things that I could have done better." No doubt.

On Tuesday, he allowed that Obama was "angry" over Democrats' troubles in Massachusetts. "With whom is he angry?" a reporter asked.

"I didn't expand on that," the spokesman replied.

"Okay, can you now?"

"I won't now."

"But you might tomorrow?"

"There's always hope," Gibbs said, using a favorite Obama campaign word.

"Audacious," interjected CBS News's Mark Knoller, using another.


Read the Whole thing. It seems like the mainstream, report on press release media is beginning to wake up. Too bad they couldn't ave listened to us 3 years ago, we might have gotten a real choice instead of choosing between the socialist behind door number one, two, or three.
