 Jake Tapper is arguably the best White House correspondent and inquirer in the business today. During last Thursday’s Health Care (and calling a police officer “stupid”) Press Conference, he asked the most direct and common question being asked around dinner tables across America.  In an apparent momentary slippage from the transparency Obama loves to preach, he deflected like a Pro Bowl cornerback.  (more…)
