Obama is holding his first press conference since April 30 before leaving on a nine-day vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.
Meanwhile, Joel Polloak at Breitbart.com offered a list of 10 questions journalists won't ask Obama, including topics such as the Obamacare delay, Benghazi attack, IRS targeting of conservative groups, peace negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian leaders, sex assault allegations against San Diego Mayor Bob Filner, National Security Agency leaks, his proposed cuts to the U.S. nuclear weapons arsenal, the Senate immigration bill, al-Qaida, the budget sequester, giving Congress Obamacare subsidies and George Zimmerman's civil rights.
Others in the blogosphere began offering their own suggestions to the White House correspondents:
- "If your political interests and the best interests of the American people ever coincided, what might that look like, in terms of policy?"
- "How many more American need to get killed from Fast and Furious weapons before you call it a real scandal?"
- "So what were you doing on the night of 9/11/2012?"
- "How much did you get back from Solyndra?"
- "I would just ask him to please leave."
- "Are you a phony POTUS?"
