Let me understand … a man is running for POTUS, but gets angry when anyone asks him or his running mate difficult questions? He can’t stand the heat, but thinks he’s entitled to “run the kitchen” as it were? Who does this guy think he is??
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, the Orlando Sentinel reported .
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.
