Obamateurism of the Day

Barack Obama held a big event for the signing of the Freedom of the Press Act, quite a celebration. How did Obama celebrate his new law? By telling the press to shove off (video via Andrew Malcolm):

After the signing of the Freedom of Press Act on Monday, President Obama declined to take any questions from the press.

During a pooled press event in the Oval Office, President Obama was asked if he would take a couple questions.

“You’re certainly free to ask the question,” Obama told the reporters in the room. “I won’t be answering, I’m not doing a press conference today, but we’ll be seeing you in the course of the week.”

Gee … how nice. Which reminds me: how exactly does Obama plan on celebrating his next milestone — the one-year anniversary of his last press conference? It’s only two months away.

Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at obamaisms@edmorrissey.com with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.
