[A]fter [Obama] signed the bill [promoting press freedom around the world], and as the press “wranglers” began aggressively herding us out of the room, I asked if he still has confidence in BP [whom he excoriated on Friday, taking no questions]. He ignored the question so I tried this: “In the interest of press freedom, would you take a couple questions on BP?”
That did elicit a smile, and he told me I was free to ask questions. Someone else shouted, “Will you answer them?”
He said he’s not holding a press conference today as we were escorted out the door.
Look, he’s a very superior fella, in every way. Can you get that straight?
