This president is a lawyer, and they typically clam up when someone tries to force them to do something. My guess is that they are going to be forced to release a statement at a press conference once Rand goes for a few days and the pressure gets too great, but that it won't be Obama himself.
It probably is also due to the fact that they are addicted to killing people and don't want to give up that power.
