Powerline on the Wednesday press conference

July 1, 2011

President Obama press conferences are more rare than his golf game these days, which may be a good thing. Sure, he gets criticized for how frequently he plays golf when so many things at home and abroad are going not well. That’s a limited beef, and it’s hard to take it further or draw inferences.

When he speaks at a press conference, though, the things he says raise a lot of questions and inferences that undermine his reputation and standing. Criticism of his performance on Wednesday are widely available. This one from John Hinderaker at Powerline is on point. The President’s actions over the past two years belie the claims he makes about his commitments and his agenda. It’s troubling.
