Obama's Question Time

President Obama answered questions from House Republicans at their retreat this afternoon. It's the closest thing to having "question time" like they do in the British parliament.

It was the most compelling political television I've seen in a long, long time. It should be required.

The New York Times reports such sessions "are typically closed and Republicans said they initially assumed the White House would want to continue that practice. But after an exchange with the White House, Republicans decided to allow press coverage rather than be portrayed as trying to keep the meeting behind closed doors."

If you missed it, watch the C-SPAN video of the event. It's really worth the time.

Here's the video:



The White House has also posted the transcript of the event.
