President Obama will hold his 10th solo news conference Tuesday in the White House briefing room in the wake of the battle over how to handle the Bush-era tax rates. 

Democrats have been disappointed -- some even openly angry -- that the president made the concessions to Republicans that he did, including extending tax cuts for the nation's richest individuals.  Read more on that here.

This will be the president's fifth news conference this year.  He also held five solo press conferences in 2009, four of them being in prime-time.

By comparison President Bush held seven press conferences his first two years in office, with one of them being prime-time.
