After 333 day President Barack Obama has decided to grace us with us his presence by holding a press conference and will answer questions Thursday. It comes after complaints by the White House press corp angered with the president for not answering questions. From Yahoo News via AFP:
President Barack Obama will hold a press conference on Thursday at which he is expected to announce stringent new offshore oil regulations, as political pressure mounts amid the Gulf disaster.
Obama will take “multiple” questions from reporters in the East Room of the White House, an official said. The media appearance will take place a day before the president’s next visit to the Gulf of Mexico on Friday.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs had previously said that Obama would Thursday take questions after receiving a report from Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on the future of offshore drilling.
