    White House Press Corp asking when Obama will actually come out and take some questions - Gibbs give indication it's not gonna happen any time soon...


    RealClearPolitics - Video - WH Press Corps Wants Press Conference From Obama


    And a viewer response:

    It seems like the POTUS is hiding behind G"l"ibbs in not taking questions at press conferences.

    Why won't he stand up and take questions before [even] a fawning press corp? I think it's because he won't have the answers on his teleprompter.

    The TOTUS: flaccid, vapid, and a coward.

    He's too busy humping his prompter in preparation for the SOTU.

    Its pretty amusing when a Republican hammers Obama on not having a press conference, considering that Bush had two in eight years...

    Obama is a prime time player only. He don't need no stinkin' press conference. The problem here is, that means Gibbs is the face and voice of the WH. Not too bright there.
