Joe Biden Has Meltdown Over Tough Questions

Barbara West with WFTV in Orlando decided that, unlike the majority of the Credentialed Media, she would, you know, be a journalist and ask the tough questions, and Joe Biden and the Obama campaign were not amused

West wondered about Sen. Barack Obama’s comment, to Joe the Plumber, about spreading the wealth. She quoted Karl Marx and asked how Obama isn’t being a Marxist with the “spreading the wealth” comment.

“Are you joking?” said Biden, who is Obama’s running mate. “No,” West said.

West later asked Biden about his comments that Obama could be tested early on as president. She wondered if the Delaware senator was saying America’s days as the world’s leading power were over.

“I don’t know who’s writing your questions,” Biden shot back.

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

Meltdown ensued. God forbid the Obama camp allow tough questions. And God help Ms. West if Obama wins. $100 says she loses her job, and WFTV has lots of FCC issues.

WFTV news director Bob Jordan said, “When you get a shot to ask these candidates, you want to make the most of it. They usually give you five minutes.”

Jordan said political campaigns in general pick and choose the stations they like. And stations often pose softball questions during the satellite interviews.

“Mr. Biden didn’t like the questions,” Jordan said. “We choose not to ask softball questions.”

You can watch the video of the exchange here. It’s a bit slow on buffering, because it is getting hit hard by the DUmmies, who are not happy that anyone would question The One and his Left Hand Guy. Thug Thizzle.

    I don’t know which interview you were watching. The interviewer was just spouting off republican talking points, and Joe Biden deconstructed her every nonsense attack question. She couldn’t even respond to his responses, she just moved on to the next non-question.

    Excellent name for a website in today’s environment. p-((

  5. Funny how neither the VP or the Pres candidates for the Democrats can take tough questions, and, instead, whine and run away. Should serve them well when they have to go up against real enemies. Total woosies.

    You should see some of the answers at Stop the ACLU, Beth, where this was crossposted. Yikes!!!!

    Ferd: they were talking points. She was asking about things that came right out of Obama and Biden’s own mouths. Deconstruction = stop believing your lying ears pay attention to MY talking points and what he was saying now, “spreading the wealth” doesn’t mean “spreading the wealth” and “John McCain was wrong on the Iraz war” when in actuality he was right and everyone that hasn’t graduated the Obama indoctrination for weak minded lemmings knows it. There’s a lot of citizens that can still think on their own and we’ve noticed that the economy under Bush was doing extremely well even after 9/11 and the wars and it wasn’t until the Dems took over in congress with their “spreading the wealth” attitudes that we suddenly tanked and that it was Bush and McCain that tried to stop it. You won’t hear that in the MSM though because they’re too busy investigating Palin’s wardrobe the RNC bought as opposed to Dodd, Frank, and the rest of the “wealth spreaders.”

    The Orlando Sentinel reported that the Obama campaign has decided to retailate against WFTV by barring all further communcation with the station for the duration of the campaign.

    The message: if you challenge the One, we will cut you off. The Godfather couldn’t have stated it better.

    Classic police state mentality. It can happen here, folks.

    You’re an effin’ idiot.

  9. David B, you mean Palin’s wardrobe is not important?! 8;)

    It is definately a preview of things to come if Barry wins, civil truth.

    Thanks for that deep comment, david.
