Obama-Biden got some tough, but fair, questions and they’re in total meltdown mode over it:

Biden so disliked West’s line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate’s wife.

“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.

McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was “a result of her husband’s experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West.”

Voters need to see this and thanks to the Obama-Biden freakout they will.

    I can’t see how Biden had a “meltdown”. He actually handled it really well given the “gotcha” questions that this woman gave.

    If I told you that I heard you were a communist and if it was true that you were a communist?

    What would you say?

    It’s funny that the first time the media asked some tough questions to the Obama Campaign and they freak out. McCain and Palin have been answering tough questions since things have begun. You don’t see them whining.

    Re: emsk

    What do you mean you don’t see Mccain/Palin whining? Palin wouldn’t even grant interviews for the first month and now they are always complaining that the media is attacking Palin with “gotcha” questions along with telling their constituents the media is in the tank for Obama. That’s not whining?

    Finally a real journalist has the guts to ask these socialist real questions. The other news media need to wake-up out of their coma and ask good questions to Obama/Biden These news outlets want socialism. This country was built from real people like Gov. Palin. You socialist need to go back to Europe.

    I thought Joe Biden did a great job of handling the fact that the reporter used the opportunity to assault the campaign with innuedoes and dirty tactics. they were not questions they were statments meant to make him melt down but he did not. why should he wanted his wife possibly subjected to that.

    Palin camp would freak over such questions she can’t even handle the normal questions posed.

    I sent WFTV this comment via their “Contact Us” link at wftv.com–

    Hello– I saw the video of the recent (Oct. 23) interview of Joe Biden by Barbara West. My complaint has to do with the fact that Ms. West’s questions were more in the nature of accusation than inquiry. That is to say, they contained and were based on unproven, unquestioned and possibly false assertions. They were so highly biased that it calls into question Ms. West’s objectivity or worse, her worth as an interviewer or newscaster. Please reconsider whether you wish Ms. West to continue to publicly and negatively represent WFTV in that manner.

    Thank you.

    I went to bed last night in the United States of America and I’m not sure where I was when I woke up this morning! How can asking tough questions in a professional manner be cause for a Presidential/Vice Presidential campaign to cancel future interviews? Was the Fairness Doctrine re-enacted? Has the government taken control of our “free press” already (I need to go to CBO.gov to get the info on that Bailout Bill to find out what’s really in it!). Restricting the press in any manner (print, TV, radio, etc.) is also the sign of a Marxist/Socialist society. The Obama campaign’s refusal to be more open about Sen. Obama’s past is cause for every American to be concerned. The Obama campaign’s push for early voting could be a sign that they want people to vote for them “before” they make anymore mistakes or anymore truths begin to surface about these unanswered connections. If Obama wins, I feel the 6 month test could be another Boston Tea Party!

    Biden said he “didn’t know who was writing her questions”…maybe he expected the questions would be much the same as would be expected for the in the bag for Obama biased media such as CNN or MSNBC?

    Didn’t she get the memo that no professional reporter dare to ask the Obama team any tough questions?? No tough question goes unpunished.

    I ask Biden, the gaffe gifted candidate, “are you kidding?”

    Senator Biden did a great job with these biased and leading questions. Tough questions…fine. That’s what we need, and Senator Biden handled them calmly and professionally even though they were asked in a manner to incite anger. The Republicans will put their spin on it of course, but the fact is that Senator Biden answered her questions while LAUGHING AT HER.

    Obama/Biden 08!!!

    These are not “tough questions” like title of the video proclaims. They are mindless dribble asked only to illicit negative responses and make some off field assumptions like Obama is related to Marx. For god sake.

    Also I don’t believe that Obama/Biden really care if you see the video. Most sane people know better.

  11. pkel

    mindless dribble? yes, to liberals it is mindless because they could care less about finding out the truth about Obama and his campaign. These were fair, valid questions and Mr. Hostile, Joe Biden, couldn’t answer because it wasn’t part of the “normal” questions he gets from CNN, MSNBC, CBS, etc. Grow up liberals. Real answers to real questions. Why would the Obama camp be so ignorant to the fact that someday, somehow a reporter is going to have the courage enough to ask them such questions especially since it is a major concern to at least 50% of the country? The other half are just looking for free handouts from the gov’t as usual, so they will blow it off.
