More Q & A With Obama
If you haven’t seen President Obama’s much talked about tangle with House Republicans at a question and answer session last Friday, you can watch it below courtesy of C-SPAN. The event – reminiscent of the British Parliament’s regular questioning of the Prime Minister – was an amazing piece of political theater, and revealed a lot more than the soundbites the mainstream media throws at us.
Now, Sam Stein of The Huffington Post reports that Obama will do a similar Q & A tomorrow morning with Senate Democrats. It obviously won’t be nearly as confrontational, and therefore, maybe not as exciting. Word has it that the administration wants to hold these Q &A sessions with Congress more regularly. I hope so. I’d especially like to see Obama get some tough questions from House progressives.
