ABC News' Jake Tapper confronts White House press secretary Jay Carney over President Obama's schedule which has included a lot of traveling. Citing a Wall Street Journal article about the number of times President Obama has traveled to swing-states, Tapper bluntly asks Carney if Obama is "campaigning on taxpayer dime."
"President Obama seems to travel to battleground states more so than any other president before him. Am I'm wondering if you could respond to this. It looks like the president is campaigning on the taxpayer dime more than any other president has done," Tapper said at today's White House briefing.

Oh, Snap... Tapper gets another one right.
Well, these “journalists” are standing up to Hussein’s Carney. I wonder if they’ll ever be brave enough to challenge Hussein to his face. Or tell the truth about his lying ass in their nightly “news” reports.
What does Rush call it?
A “Random act of journalism”?
>> Tapper gets another one right.
Tapper is usually the only real journalist in the room.
This country would be well served if *every* so-called journalist was a Jake Tapper.
That’s so perfect.
Less is more, Jay.
Way to go. We’ll thank you for that.
Agreed...through the whole presidency, Tapper seems to be the only one in the room asking the tough questions
Whoa...Big man on campus takes a swing. The little metrosexual makes an attempt at being a journalist. I wouldn’t trust him for 5 minutes. Tapper will go back to soft ball again.
My respect for Tapper grows...
it seems tapper just asks so the administration can pull the wool over everyone’s eyes...
it’s blatant campaigning, but he won, so be it.
CBS Newsâ Mark Knoller and ABC Newsâ Jack Tapper may need to be careful about these random displays of journalism, someone just may take offense and there could be serious consequences.
I don’t always see eye-to-eye with Tapper, but you got to admit, this guy is the closest thing to an honest MSM journalist as there may be.
What is stunning is why aren’t more Journ-o-lists more curious about such things? (rhetorical question)
Maybe the members of the press corps aren’t as anxious to get away from the wife and kids as Barry is.
He asks tough questions, not provocative questions.
“It seems like Obama” is not “How do you explain Obama taking more trips on the taxpayers dime?”
Tapper does just enough to stay out of Obama’s reach.
Does Carney sound a little too prepared for this question?
0bama has been traveling and campaigning on the taxpayers dime since he was immaculated. Every speech is a campaign stop and he would be lost without his teleprompter.
President 0bama: STOP campaigning on the taxpayers dime!!
To 57 states.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
