It was Chris Matthews’ Leg’s favorite holiday today. It was “President Agrees to Take a Couple of Questions Day.”
It’s kind of like Groundhog Day. Once a year President Obama comes out from behind a teleprompter and, if he hears a reporter’s question, answers it (sort of). This is thought to indicate there will be six more weeks of honeymoon with the press–at least at MSNBC.
“It was tops and taps,” The Leg enthused afterward. “This president is so accessible. I can access him on my television almost any time, day or night. He’s everywhere.”
The Leg looks forward to the President’s next freewheeling, no-holds-barred encounter with the Fourth Estate, sometime in the Spring of 2011. It’ll be here before we know it.
