Press Corps Chuckles at Headline

Politico's lead story today:

Hard questions await Obama at news conference

They certainly do await him.  But does anyone think they'll actually be ASKED of him?

Again, the correct headline should read "Hard Questions Bound and Gagged Prior to President's Press Conference", unless of course your interpretation of "hard questions" is "Mr President, how hard is it waking up every morning knowing that you are going to have to deal with an incalcitrant Republican House blocking every common sense policy you try to enact?" or "Mr. President, have you picked out an anniversary gift for Michelle yet?" or "Mr. President, would you mind if I came up and gave you a big ol hug?" I'd love to see someone in the press corps (other than those radical outliers, or outliars as the left would call them, Fox News) ask him a real question a la "Mr President, you avoided answering questions about Benghazi the answers to which were surely known, prior to the election. Now that you are less vulnerable, can you now share with the American public what you knew, when you knew it and why you paraded your US Ambassador to the UN out with a clearly incorrect message after most Americans already knew it was incorrect? Keep in mind, you promised the former head of the KGB that you would be able to deal with him once the election was over...could you also not offer the same courtesy to your fellow citizens?" I would love to see the stammering episode that would certainly follow: "Uh, well, uh, as I have stated many times before, the Republican Congress has, uh, despite my many attempts to compromise, uh, the Tea Party, uh, Bush, as you know I inherited a problem the likes of which, uh, arrgghhhhhohhhhh! [booming] Do not arouse the wrath of the great and powerful O. I said come back tomorrow. I am the great and powerful O! Pay no attention to the man behind the teleprompter. Hope! Change! Forward! uh, uh, uh."

Yeah, that question's probably not going to get asked.
