Obama to hold 16th full press conference of presidency
Posted by
CNN Political Unit

(CNN) - When President Barack Obama holds a news conference on Wednesday, it will be the 16th solo, formal White House press conference of his presidency.

It will be his first since winning re-election and since the resignation of his CIA director over an affair - both topics likely to come up on Wednesday.

Obama has taken reporters' questions in a variety of other forums, most recently in late August, when he made an unannounced stop at the regular White House briefing for reporters in the midst of the heated campaign and a week before the start of the Republican National Convention.

He confronted criticism of a video produced by the main super PAC supporting his candidacy which appeared to tie Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to a woman's death, as well as stood by his call for Romney to release his tax documents. He also addressed the controversial comments on "legitimate rape" made by Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican U.S. Senate candidate from Missouri.

Earlier this year, Obama took questions at the from reporters while attending the G20 and NATO conferences, as well as on occasions when visiting or hosting foreign leaders.

Days before his press conference at the G20 in Mexico, a writer with a conservative website shouted questions at Obama while he spoke to cameras in the White House Rose Garden.

In Obama's first press conference following his inauguration in 2009, he took a total of 13 questions over the course of nearly an hour. Television ratings from the Nielsen Company said his February 9, 2009 remarks were watched by 49.5 million viewers.

Obama: ‘We need more revenue’ (a.k.a. tax increases)

President Obama kicked off the final news conference of his first term by renewing his call for Congress to approve a “balanced” deficit-reduction package that includes both spending cuts and new revenues.

Republican leaders have said repeatedly that the Jan. 1 fiscal cliff agreement ended any discussion of raising new revenue and that in upcoming negotiations they would deal only in spending cuts. Obama made clear that he does not agree.

He reiterated that he is “open to making modest adjustments to programs like Medicare.”

“The fact is, though, we can’t finish the job of deficit reduction through spending cuts alone,” Obama added. “We need more revenue.”

“The debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending,” Obama said. “Raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that Congress has already agreed to.”
