    He had already answered at least 2 questions similar to that at the time. He didn't need to take another question about that seriously. It was a game they were playing and they know it. I'm glad Obama made them look dumb!

    •  Really? When he answered the other two (0+ / 0-)

      questions, did he say anything like "yes, I said things about Hillary during the campaign not because I necessarily thought that they were true, but because I felt that she had established the rules of the game as one where we were playing a bit fast and loose with our characterizations of one another and people should not expect me to repeat or endorse now what I said during the campaign"?

      Because, if he didn't say that -- and I hope he didn't -- then there was still room for follow-up questions to get him to provide the above, probably pretty accurate, answer.  Any time anyone is not completely leveling with the public, even on grounds of politeness or puffery, reporters can fairly ask such a question.  It is not that there is no "there" there, it's that it's stupid to make such a big deal out of it -- especially if one is married to a professional liar like Dan Senor.
