Long answers? That means they must have the TOTUS back in working order.

Is this payback or just that FAUX NEWS as a non credible News Organization is just so irrelevant?
Are you honestly crowing that your president - dare I say your Own Personal Jesus (with apologies to Depeche Mode) - has been reduced to giving 'payback' to those who don't fellate him?

Really, Dukester? Is that really what you want to say?

Fox organized the tea parties?
I'm sure you have proof of that -- link up.
And Fox pushed what?
Hey -- maybe Fox news was the second shooter in Dallas! And I've heard that Fox helicopers are all black, and staffed with men in black......did you know that Fox News was last seen with Marilyn Monroe before she died? OMG -- Fox News is head quartered in Area 61


Moronic indeed

I do have a hearing problem and think Obama did a little dance around with the woman from "Telemundo" Mexico TV regarding her question on Immigration. He seem to pass off the matter as being worked on by a special group...the word "illegal" was not mentioned. Am I correct here?

Amen! Before the election would have been good.

This so called press conference reminded me of a communist country where everybody knows that you have to please the leader or your job may be at risk. Even worse was what I saw happening on C-span today about the hate crimes bill. People are going to start being jailed because of their opinions on certain issues. Think I am wrong? I will agree that I cannot know for sure, but it has already happened in some states and congress is talking about a hate crimes bill that is based on opinions. Many senators today warned that the bill is unconstitutional. I agree with them. This bill makes freedom of speech and religion a thing of the past, if there is any freedom of speech and religion already.

Did you learn logic from Fox News? I don't know what pretzel you got it from.

He may or may not have deliberately avoided any Fox reporter because the network openly snubbed him. Fox refused to air the press conference on their regular channel, though they did carry it on their news channel. It's no secret Fox hates Obama. And I would offer that it may be no secret that some other news channels are biased the other way. So, placing yourself in this situation, if your enemy taunts you, would you engage them in conversation or would you ignore them? If you engage them, you may make your situation worse and escalate the tension. If you ignore them, they don't get to hog the limelight.

It's not cowardice. It's common sense. Oh, and I'm not an Obama supporter.
