Much has been made of the fact that Joe Biden has been hiding from the press, but he isn’t the only one. Barack Obama won’t take any questions either. Jake Tapper reports:
ABC’s Jake Tapper managed to get Sen. Barack Obama’s attention on the tarmac in Springfield, Mo., this morning.
“What would you tell your Treasury secretary to do differently with the $700 billion?” he asked, according to the pool report.
“It’s a substantive question!” Tapper shouted.
“It is! But Jake, we’re on a tarmac! That’s a pretty good question!” Obama responded.
Tapper: “Have a press conference then!”
Obama: “I will! On Wednesday!”
By then, of course, it will be a little late. But a compliant press corps doesn’t mind.
