Quote of the Press Conference
Whether it is true or not, this is the quote of Obama's press conference last night. Read or listen to the whole thing here.
QUESTION: But on AIG, why did you wait -- why did you wait days to come out and express that outrage? It seems like the action is coming out of New York and the attorney general's office. It took you days to come public with Secretary Geithner and say, "Look, we're outraged." Why did it take so long?
OBAMA: It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I'm talking about before I speak.
Too bad more politicians don't follow that thought.
