More rough notes from comments from Pres Obama campaign …..belate are the comments (emailed to me by an FNC colleague) -
One other note from this gaggle, Psaki recalled then candidate Obama’s foreign trip claiming there was lots of media access. When Psaki was then asked after touting that transparency from four years ago, why the campaign was not releasing information on who was hosting and co hosting tonight’s campaign event, she would only say she is sure the reporter who asked the question will do some reporting at the event.
Q: fundraiser in Israel appropriate?
16:09:33 i was on trip with Sen Obama four years ago when he went overseas, trip was full ofnot only access to the media,not only several press conferences and press avails, we also had access for media after meetings there were sprays, they gave remarks, we tried to
16:09:50 keep it at highest level possible. when you look at this trip, it’s clear this is bunch of fundraisers, photo ops fumbles. not sure Mitt Romney has moved the ball forward, crossing the threshold question of whether to be commander in chief.
Q: why not release who co hosts for tonight’s event? we have noidea who is raisign money for the president, no idea, even cohosts.
16:10:31 you’re an excellent reporter and i’m sure you’ll do some reporting at the event…
