During this time of Thanksgiving, it is altogether fitting and appropriate that we stop to give thanks for one of our most important and cherished freedoms in America: our freedom of the press. Without the vigorous and unflinching watchdogs of truth and justice, where would we be today?
This freedom is why after eight months of hiding from the confrontational reporters who follow him most closely, President Obama finally got smoked out of the West Wing and was shamed into appearing before the demanding press a week after he secured re-election.
And what vicious watchdogs they were!
One dame began her question by thanking President Obama for blessing her with the opportunity to humbly ask him a question.
“Thank you, Mr. President. And congratulations, by the way,” she cooed.
Turns out, Mr. Obama told us, he and this reporteress “go back a ways.” Back to his days in Illinois when he was just organizing people on the street, hammering out his mettle to become president.
She swooned at all the reminiscing.
