What’s the big deal? Why is this news? Because, as Jay Newton-Small at Time’s Swampland explains, Obama hasn’t given a press conference in 10 days and the reporters had no other opportunity to ask him.
I dunno. Campaigning for a year solid for 16 hours a day, criss-crossing the country while morons question you about the deep thoughts of your former pastor, and whether or not your pastor is patriotic enough for you to be President, and I can’t imagine why someone would just want to eat their damned waffle and not talk to Jake Tapper and his friends.
Maybe the press could spend some time digging into Cindy McCain’s tax records if they are so damned bored.

I concur. Thank GOD he was not eating French toast.
