The speech, nay, the press conference seem scripted to me. The timing between what was transmitted over the airwaves was much faster than what was transmitted on cable programming. I think this was all pre-recorded (for Pacific Time).
Oh yeah, I didn't like the faces of the reporters, almost unnatural and uncomfortable. I felt as if they were warned to keep it cool while under pressure.

He was reading it straight off of a teleprompter. That's why it seemed that way.
As for those reporters, my guess is that they're feeling guilty because none of them did their J-O-B back during the fall election cycle.
THE CLAIM: Responding to Republican critics in Congress who say his proposed budget carries an irresponsible deficit, Obama said, "I suspect that some of those Republican critics have a short memory, because, as I recall, I'm inheriting a $1.3 trillion deficit, annual deficit, from them."
FACT: Obama inherited a whopper of a deficit, much of it due to policies and spending led by Republican President George W. Bush. But the Congress, which authorizes spending and is not blameless in driving up deficits, was controlled by Democrats in the last two years of Bush's presidency.
yeah it must be tough to have a president that can complete a understandable sentence
