Memo From the Obama Camp to All Media Outlets: Vee vill tell you vhat questions you may ask. Zees is non-negotiable!

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Barack Obama's campaign killed all interviews with a Florida TV station after Sen. Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, faced tough and critical questions Thursday from reporter Barbara West of WFTV.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign, according to the Sentinel.

Watch the video and you decide whether these questions were out of line:

So what'd you think? Bad questions? Harsh questions? Or questions that many Americans have been wanting to hear answers to? I very much wanted to know more about Obama's plan to "spread the wealth". I very much wanted to know what Biden meant about Obama being "tested" within 6 months of being president. (And despite Joe the Biden's word dance, he did specifically say that Obama would be tested...not just "the next president", as he now claims he meant. Oh and by the way Joe, it's not Obama and/or McCain who would be tested, seeing as how they can't both be president). I also would have liked to have heard more about Obama's ties to ACORN. Joe said here that Obama was a community organizer for them. No secret there, except that last week, Obama changed the wording on his website to say he was never hired by ACORN. Semantics, really. Whether or not he was hired and paid back in the day doesn't negate the fact that he did indeed collaborate with them and knowing that he's working so hard to minimize the appearance of their relationship now concerns me. It's a form of dishonesty and I don't know why America tolerates it.
Finally, at long last, someone from the media has actually asked Joe Biden to explain a few of his very own comments, as well as those of his would-be boss, and the Obama campaign shuts that media outlet down. No more interviews. This concerns me mightily because these were questions I wanted answers to. I do believe Obama wants to take our country to socialism - he's given every single indication of it and, no matter how harshly and frequently the left may mock that viewpoint, it doesn't change the facts...Obama wants to "nationalize" health care, he wants to "spread the wealth", he wants to nominate Supreme Court judges who have "empathy" for the downtrodden, rather than ones who are concerned with the letter of the law (which is kind of their actual role in our government, by the way), he wants to put government in charge of our retirement accounts ('cause the government has done so well with Social Security's funds) many more clues do we need before we see the light? I'm constantly amazed at people's willingness to accept lame explanations for these blatant signs. It stuns me. It truly does. I don't want the government taking so much control over my life. Why do you? Is that the kind of "change" America wants? To abdicate responsibility and authority of their own lives and give it to the government? Say it ain't so, Joe! Oh, wait a minute, that's right. Joe doesn't talk about those issues. He (and apparently the whole Obama camp) doesn't like those kind of questions....


  1. Imagine their shock and dismay when they didn't get the usual pass by the media!!! Speaks volumes.

  2. Kari - Tonja at Gatherings wrote a couple of good posts about our buddy Obama that are very interesting. Go over to her site and read them.

    I wish people would wake up and see this man for what he is.

    I'm really worried about what this country will be like if he's elected.

  3. Controlling the media will also be part of their political agenda. And anybody who disagrees with them will be ridiculed, silenced, and called a racist. Why people can not see what is happening right before their eyes is beyond me too. With Pelosi and friends running the Congressional show, there will be no checks and balances.

  4. he probaly said enough when he said he'll be tested. Since they are sound biting everything Mc Cain says in Fl. They don't want any bites on their side

  5. I just marked the Info Blogs {Like 'Radarsite' and 'Pajamas Media' and the like} which I use {because they are in my mindset}... Just had to mark them Read. My mind is over-loaded with the ludicrousness of this Presidential Election Campaign. -sigh-

    No, I didn't mark yours read, without reading it!!!!!!!!!! ,-)

    But I have run out of words, to describe my FRUSTRATION with allllllllll this &*(&^%$^&(^^^#@$%^&&* crap!!!!!!!!!!!

    And I'm making a new Google Reader Folder, of like minded people like you and your readers who comment, like this... BECAUSE I'm getting sick of reading 99% of the ladies blogs, which I have been following. I'm gagging on the soft, pretty, cozy stuff.... WHEN it is never combined with any recognition of TROUBLE in our Beloved Country.

    And I feel, from your reader's comments, that these people are very worried, like you and I are. And that these people have their eyes open. And even if they post usual life things, I can be secure that they also know what's going on. And do not have their heads stuck in the sand, like an ostrich.

    So Gals, I'll be stopping by. I need to follow blog people, who are worried too. Which sounds weird, but I know you'll understand what I'm trying to say.

    Courage to you Kari! And to all of us, who have our eyes open. May there be many, many, many more of us!! A silent majority!!!

    Miss Mari-Nanci

  6. That's a shame, I would have loved to have heard the answers to those questions too. It never fails to amaze me when I see the things they are doing. SIGH!!!

  7. Socialism creates a population of people who live by the motto "Why bother"

    Why Bother:
    to start my own business when the govt will take all of my profits away.

    to invent something I will never get the rewards for

    to reach for success in any area when I know the rewards will be so minimal

    to work hard for an honest days pay - if I get OJI, the govt will pay me to stay at home and become a Do-Nothing!

    When is the last time you heard of someone from Sweden (socialist)doing something really great?..and I have news for you - their hospitals are no where near as advanced as ours!....but hey - it only costs a minimum amount to go there..


Thank you for your comment. I love to hear what you have to say!
