Besides bees, Obama is bringing a couple more things to the White House that have not been seen commonly in recent times: openness:
"Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton each had four prime-time news conferences from the East Room during their eight years in office, according to Martha Joynt Kumar, a professor of political science at Towson University. Obama has already held two in little more than two months in office. "
"Responding with his most partisan comment of the evening, Obama said his Republican critics should look to their own history with the federal budget, accusing them of having "a short memory" when it comes to deficits.
"As I recall, I'm inheriting a $1.3 trillion annual deficit from them," he said."
