Petulance the By-Word of the Obama-Biden Campaign

It’s not enough that the media have been giving the Obama-Biden ticket a pass on legitimate questions, Obama’s highly questionable past and odd relationships, and has been giving the Democrats favorable coverage to a level that would make a Chicago politician blush, but now, in a fit of grade school pique, the campaign has shut a Florida TV station out of future interviews because the station’s news anchor dared to ask uncomfortable questions of Joe Biden.

Biden was absolutely flummoxed when anchor Barbara West asked how Obama's "spreading the wealth around" is different than Karl Marx's dictum "from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs." Then she had the temerity to ask ol' Sen. Foot-in-Mouth about his remark about Obama being challenged by some serious event soon after taking office.

Undoubtedly, these questions came as a shock to Biden and the campaign, since no one has dared to ask such questions before and they no doubt have become accustomed to having a free ride to the White House.

This bodes ill for the future if these two "children" get elected.

Congratulations to WFTV and anchor Barbara West for having the courage to do her job. She is a rare creature in today’s discredited media world.
