That whole ex post facto BATF approval of his magazine stunt authorized by the White House saved him some annoying inconvenience. Now he is paying it back with questions like this:
NBC host David Gregory asked President Barack Obama this morning, “Is this your Lincoln moment?”
The question came up after Obama invoked the movie Lincoln when talking about Republicans and Democrats coming together to work out a deal on the “fiscal cliff.
“Well, no,” Obama said in response to Gregory’s question. “Look, a) I never compare myself to Lincoln. And b) obviously the magnitude of the issues is quite different from the Civil War and slavery. The point, though, is democracy has always been messy. We’re a big diverse country that is constantly sort of arguing about all kinds of stuff. But eventually, we do the right thing.”
I think Gregory is going to need a new wardrobe accessory if he is to continue covering the White House.
