Obama’s Post-Election Press Conference

President Obama is holding his first press conference in eight months, and the first since he won reelection 8 days ago. As we noted earlier, the networks are breaking into regular programming for the presser.

“I hear you have a few questions for me,” Obama said as he stepped up to the podium, before delivering a brief statement.

 

Among the likely topics of discussion are the Petraeus incident, his election win and the attack in Benghazi.

  • The first question went to the AP, as is customary, which asked about national security as it relates to the Petraeus scandal.
  • Question two went to CNN chief White House correspondent Jessia Yellin, who asked about the fiscal cliff as it related to tax cuts.

Pres. Obama’s Healthcare News Conference


What Are You Watching?(survey)

> First question goes to Ben Feller of the AP. He asks about — wait for it — healthcare. How to pay for it, and the deadline to get it passed.

> Really long first answer. Second question goes to David Alexander of Reuters, again on healthcare – the August deadline.

> Third question from Chuck Todd of NBC. Cost of healthcare. And it must be balmy in the East Room as Chuck is looking shiny. Feller of the AP did too. Chuck gets a follow-up.

> Jake Tapper of ABC gets the fourth question. What will Americans have to give up with healthcare reform?

> Chip Reid of CBS gets question five. Taking politics out of healthcare reform.

> Christi Parsons of the Chicago Tribune gets question six and asks the President if he’s fulfiling his promise of transparency.

> Julianna Goldman (Mrs. David Shuster) of Bloomberg News gets question seven and asks whether Obama administration needs to take a harder line on Wall Street risk-takers.

> Question eight goes was supposed to go to Stephen Koff of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Instead, McClatchy’s Steve Thomma asks whether POTUS and Congress would abide by the same benefits in the public option.

> Koff then gets in a quick question ahead of Obama’s trip to Cleveland tomorrow.

> Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times gets the last question and asks about the arrest of Prof. Henry Louis Gates. Obama: “Skip Gates is a friend so I may be a little biased. Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were already in their own home.”
