OH, I RATHER DOUBT THAT: Politico: Hard Questions Await Obama At News Conference. At least, if so it’ll be the first time. Interesting to see Politico raise some of these issues so sharply, though their first “hard question” lets Obama off the hook by pretending to believe that he didn’t know anything about Petraeus until after the election, which is quite implausible.
Plus: “Here’s a very simple question for the esteemed press corps: Why did you repeatedly lie that the terror attack in Benghazi was a protest against a video nobody ever saw and why is the maker of that clip in prison?” Yeah, like anyone will ask that question.
