Obama at House GOP Conference

leave a comment »

 Two days after delivering his state of the union address, Obama appeared at the House GOP Conference in Baltimore for a riveting question & answer session.  Covering issues such as the health care debate to the national debt, the President answered (and answered well, might I add) all of the questions thrown at him with sophistication and an obvious understanding of the policies and issues.

President Obama’s appearance Friday before the GOP House Issues Conference in Baltimore was supposed to be behind closed doors, with only a pool reporter to capture their exchanges. But the House Republicans decided early Friday to invite in all reporters, and the result made for a gripping political exchange, with the Republicans posing tough questions of Obama, and the president giving as good as he got.

I encourage everyone (mom, hallie, abby–my only readers) to watch the video (at your leisure, of course) or to read the transcript, which the Washington Post has broken down by each lawmaker’s question and Obama’s response.
