President Obama will hold a rare Q&A press briefing with reporters at 10:30 a.m. Eastern today. There doesn't appear to be any specific agenda for the press conference, but topics will likely include the Boston investigation, Syria, gun control, the sequester, and maybe some Obamacare.
The president received some criticism at the end of this frist term when it was learned that his press availabilities were the fewest of any president since Ronald Reagan. (Though he does do more sit-down interviews than anyone.) So the press will be eager to take this opportunity to grill him on any topic they can get to.
WH always likes pressers when Congress is out of town. Lets them control message and harder for scattered lawmakers to push back— carl hulse (@hillhulse) April 30, 2013
