Obama: No Follow-Up Questions
Craig Crawford points out that Barack Obama is following in the footsteps of George W. Bush, by refusing to take follow-up questions.
In last night’s press conference, Obama cut off any attempt by reporters to follow up his answers to their questions. If he intends to maintain this Bush policy, reporters must work together and agree to ask the obvious follow-up to the previous question as they take their turns. Otherwise, these press conferences are nothing but one-sided speeches.
