Awwww...they got their widdle feelings hurt!!! (http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment_tv_tvblog/2008/10/obama-campaign.html) :D




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."

Ohhhh...this is so good. :eek:


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 from a reporter at the Orlando station, reported the Orlando Sentinel .

During a satellite video Thursday, WFTV's Barbara West quoted Karl Marx and asked Biden how Obama's comment to "Joe the Plumber," about spreading the wealth wasn't being Marxist.

"Are you joking?," Biden asked.

West replied, "No."

Later in the interview West questioned Biden about his comments that if Obama wins the election next month, he would be tested early on as president and wanted to know if Biden was implying America was no longer the world's leading power.

"I don't know who's writing your questions," Biden asked her.

The Obama camp then killed a WFTV interview with Biden's wife Jill, according to an Orlando Sentinel blog.

"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.

Ms. West is my new favorite anchorwoman. Way to show some class, Biden was against the ropes the entire time! Typical liberal move too...run and cower when you don't get your way. Gutless turds. :p

A pattern here. We don't like the questions. We will ignore you and cut you off. Or we just may shut you up and destroy your life. This is getting scarry. He might just win this thing. Be afraid.

Yep, the interview questions were hardly that bad. Interesting Obama/Biden
can't take a little heat. They are making themselves look like little brown shirts.

It makes you wonder... Joe Biden said that Obama will be "tested within the first six months with a world crisis"... If Obama can not be "tested" with tough questions before the election, how will he react after he is elected when he really will be "tested"...

Will he just be "present"

Great post. If he wins, "the people" will not be privy to any info going on in the WH.
