Obama vs. Bush: Analyzing Press Conference Style

Jon Stewart thinks President-elect Barack Obama has a lot to learn about holding a press conference. Compared to President Bush, Obama's style can be described as respectful, engaging, and open minded. Jon took the chance to illustrate Obama excess of politeness, by juxtaposing clips of Obama and Bush taking (or ignoring) questions from the press. My favorite part of the "President Goofus and President Gallant" segment had to be the roundup of President Bush's nicknames for the members of the press corps. Have a watch — I bet you'll laugh out loud!

A) Fox isn't going to send any reporters to question Obama? B) They didn't start out that way: go back and watch Bush's (few) early news conferences and encounters with reporters. It was time and experience that caused any tone changes. C) Remember reporters with Clinton?

"ok em, cause for a while I was like Oh no she didn't just say that about me." Haha, nope Hain! And to be clearer I wasn't referring to a person as a 'trainwreck', I was referring to debates/arguments that go on in threads that are more frequented by posters.
