Campbell Brown's Double Standard

After watching this latest rant out of Campbell Brown over Barack Obama's refusal to answer a reporter's question about his choice of Hillary Clinton for Secretary of State, I've got to say I agree completely with our friend GottaLaff over at The Political Carnival:

Campbell "no bull, no bias" (oh, puh-leeze) Brown accused Obama of being flip, avoiding "a legitimate question", and playing games with the press. Whether she's right or wrong about his obligation to answer that particular question, I don't seem to remember her ever ranting about that in regard to the Bush administration, who virtually spit in the faces of anyone daring to ask so much as one "legitimate" question, let alone a follow-up. Nor would (or could) Bush make even a minimal attempt to give an honest, or coherent, response. If evasive, nasty little retorts were middle fingers, Bush managed to blatantly flip off the press on a regular basis... if and when he held any press conferences. Maybe Mrs. Dan Senor should have had the same set of standards, and intestinal fortitude, to face off with the current president before lashing out at the future one.

Where was the outrage for George Bush when he was behaving badly Campbell? No bias, no bull, my butt.
