Is it me? Or is the WH press corp a toothless tiger??

SHS has a pattern. She uses a stock answer for all difficult questions.

"the president wants to have a conversation about that"

" I can't answer that because we need to have a conversation about that"

"Until we have a conversation about that and learn more, I can't answer that"

If I were in that room I would ask

"What will the president learn in a conversation, that he already doesn't know about bump stocks?"

"Is there anything the president already knows, that doesn't require him to have a conversation with some one else?"

1. Huckster likes to end briefing early if under heat

They back off so their agencies can say such and such got a question in.

5. There seems to be very little fact-checking, no follow-ups and few important questions from them.

I hate to say this but they might take some inspiration from how Faux treated Obama but insert truth and issues of importance for the Faux bluster.

6. Months ago Keith Olbermann called on all reporters to NOT show up

at all for these since they never give any info or what they do say is well known BS. He is right. They should boycott this worthless manipulation of the public via their talking puppet.

7. It seems like they ask the right questions

It's just that this White House is the least prepared to discuss any matter of any White House. Most reporters seem to rely on the many leaks, and idiots twitter feed for actual answers. It's like you have to throw it out there and wait until the information gets to you by other means. But time and time again the leaks etc... are answering these questions eventually. So I think they're doing all right.

8. Spicer was on Colbert and said his job was to relay what the Prez thinks. If one buys that, those

stock answers are about all they can say.

I would love to here your questions asked, though.

9. It is all about the Cocktail Circut.

Everyone whom I have ever know that worked the Hill would say the same. No--one wants to be out scoped for the day. All about personal contacts and who knows who. BTW,these people make one hell of a Salary compared to someone out in the Toolies.
