In today's prime-time press conference, reporters hurled many questions at president Obama, including--according to msnbc.com:
— Afghanistan: He said it was too early to give a timetable for withdrawal of U.S. troops from the country.
— Iran: He is "looking for openings" in the coming months to start face-to-face talks.
— Bank bailout: He was not sure if the government would need more than the remaining $350 billion of bank bailout funds to restore the ailing U.S. financial system. He said his first task would be making sure those funds were spent wisely and with transparency.
— Alex Rodriguez: Obama described the baseball star's admission that he used a banned substance "depressing news on top of what’s been a flurry of depressing items when it comes to major league baseball."
All I can say is thank God. Obama has expressed his views on A-Rod.
Tonight I will sleep like a baby, but tomorrow Obama must speak to the inexplicable fame of David Archuleta.
