“We’re seeing a trend with these news conferences: President Obama has come into each with specific points he wants to make – fighting for his economic stimulus plan during his first one, and tonight pushing his budget blueprint. And he returns to these points almost regardless of what’s asked. He even turned a question on Mideast peace into fixing the economy.”
