    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."

    Those were great questions that the BHO camp ought to have to answer. However, the majority of the liberal media is already in the tank for BHO and would not dream of asking such tough questions. I hope the alternative media picks this and runs with the story. It was funny to watch Joe duck and weave and then get madder and madder as the tough questions kept coming.:thumbs:

    All Biden could think to do was "blame it on Bush".

    Liberals think everyone else is stupid. :laugh:

    We have a preview of what is to come if the Marxist is elected. Can anyone honestly claim to be surprised?

    I've been seeing it all day here.

    It's just more propaganda to say Obama is moving toward Communism. The same scare tactic used against FDR for some of his great depression programs. We're not communist yet...

    No we are not. But that doesn't mean it isn't the goal.

    By the way Biden, in this video, denied that Obama said he would spread the wealth around.

    Another gaff for Biden, taxes spread the wealth no matter how you look at it.

    We just helped the rich on wallstreet with a $700 Bill check. Spreading the wealth is what we do.

    And yet they are still getting bonuses as was reported in the news today. It is that garbage that pushed me out of the repubs.

    I thought Joe Biden did an excellent job in this interview, knowledgeably answering questions that were very obviously biased with grace and without rancor.

    Just ask yourself how John McCain would react to the following question:

    Senator McCain you've said that America might stay in Iraq for 100 years. Isn't that basically saying we want to conquer and occupy the country in the same way the Nazi Germany wanted to conquer and occupy the entire world?

    Is it any worse to ask whether you're a Nazi or to quote from the communist manifesto and ask whether you're a Marxist? I'd call it a toss-up. Both were reprehensible regimes which neither of these candidates had anything to do with.

    I think you are making this up. You are more reasonable than this.

    Many people have complained about how Palin didn't do interviews, but no one seems to notice that Biden doesn't do them, and then when he does, pulls this stupidity. Why does anyone take him seriously?

    No. I think he did an excellent job. I truly believe that if Senator McCain were presented with the parallel question above he would get very angry and storm out of the interview. There certainly wouldn't have been any possibility of future interviews with THAT TV station. I think the Obama campaign did absolutely the right thing in not returning for additional biase garbage like that woman was spewing. Would you like it if an interviewer called McCain a Nazi?

    Obama is a Marxist and that's a fact! Biden's mouth continually stays ahead of his brain and that's a fact.

    I'm calling you on this:
    Either you did not see the video clip where Biden did not answer the questions and he was not impressive in his communication skills where upon he challenge the interviewer and the questions in ridicule, or you are not a critic... except if you be deaf and blind!

    So the answer to this problem is to run out and vote for the most leftwing liberal socialist candidate in the up coming election?:tonofbricks:

    Yep, I'm voting as far from the right as I can this election. I have watched them live in excess while we live without enough far too long.

    What this is is the Obama camp finally met a news media source that wasn't willing to carry them like all the others. Biden fully expected to be treated with kid gloves and was broad sided by a journalist with some intellectual honesty. Now the Obama camp is just trying not to make any mistakes so they are going to cut off any media sources that will not carry them. Quite dishonest from the Obama camp.
