Now they're asking??

From Dan Balz in the Washington Post:

At home, Obama must revive an economy experiencing some of the worst shocks in more than half a century. Abroad, he has pledged to end the war in Iraq and defeat al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan. He ran on a platform to change the country and its politics. Now he must begin to spell out exactly how.
So let's get this straight....the Washington Post has no idea of what Obama is going to do.

Mike's America put it well over at Flopping Aces:

You mean the guy was campaigning for years and even the Washington Post doesn’t know what he would do once elected? All those debates. All those speeches. All those press conferences (oops! scratch that, he has held so very few) and we don’t know what Obama would do once he’s in office?

What were all those thousands of reporters doing when they weren’t busy investigating Sarah Palin’s children or Joe the Plumber? Don’t you think they could have asked Obama a question about the economy, Iraq or the Taliban?

Another example of the end of journalism by the traditional press.
