15 Questions The Mainstream Media Would Ask Barack Obama If He Were A Republican
Points and Figures - CNN Money ^ | 2/21/2012 | Jeff Carter

Posted on 02/24/2012 6:06:35 PM PST by Beave Meister

If you deny that there is liberal bias in the mainstream media, you are living under a rock. In 2008, it was Journolist. We saw George Stephanopolos take marching orders into debate questioning. Here are some good questions for the President.

The only thing they don’t ask Republican candidates about much is economic questions and debt questions. Instead they ask horribly slanted, often irrelevant questions designed to make them look bad and help Obama. We’ve heard questions about contraceptives, religion, Newt’s angry ex-wife, Cain’s employees, Romney’s personal wealth, Gardasil, etc. Newt’s rise was because of the way he attacked the media and Obama in the debates because of the stupid and obviously planted questions.

So, what would happen if the mainstream media treated Barack Obama the exact same way they treat Republicans? The questions might sound a little something like this.

If he were a Republican he never would have made it past the first debate. The title should have read "15 questions the MSM would ask if the MSM was conservative."

“So, what would happen if the mainstream media treated Barack Obama the exact same way they treat Republicans?”

He would never have been elected....McCain would have won by the same margin Obama did.

12) Back in July, you said, “Nobody’s looking to raise taxes right now. We’re talking about potentially 2013 and the out years.” Since you plan to raise taxes if you’re elected and you’ve had kind words for a value added tax, shouldn’t every American expect a tax increase if you’re reelected?

I'd love to hear Skippy answer this one.

Whoever our nominee is, they need an ad campaign called “Questions the media won’t ask President Obama”. I’m sure there are some great Obama video clips out there, like the one where he says he wants to do away with the coal industry.

The only question Obama needs to be asked is “Why do you lie so much?”

The MSM strategy (and the other night in Arizona you could clearly see that Newt has figured out how to counteract it) is to pit Republicans against each other (you could tell that Blitzer and John King were trying to start a fight in Florida), and keep the focus on non issues. John King’s “are you for or against contraception” question the other night was beyond ridiculous.

Why are gas prices so high? Is it because you're a crook and somebody at Haliburton is paying you off?

“Mr. Obama, at what point in your life did you decide to live as Barack Hussein Obama instead of Barry Soetoro? And a follow up if I may, given that you have used many different names and passports in the past, how do we know we have the correct one now?”

“Mr Obama, you claim you hardly knew William Ayres, yet he has visited the White House officially numerous times. Is it your contention that you do NOT pal around with terrorists? And if so, why does First Lady Michelle Obama spend all of her time on taxpayer funded getaways?”

I see asking him where/who he got cocaine or dope from was not an option.

Mr Obama is it the job of the President in picking winners and losers?

Mr. Obama your ideology is based on the notion that in order for some people to be “free” they must be given money the government has forcibly taken from others. Does this mean the people the government forcibly took money from are less “free”, and doesn’t that in turn mean that at some point they will be completely enslaved?

or

Mr Obama what will happen when all the money has been redistributed and everyone is poor?

Kevin Jennings...

If he were Bush’s man, do you think perhaps the media might have shown him more attention..?

Good point. People forget that 2008 was no landslide for the Usurper.

I’ve been in West Virginia, once again, for several days visiting a son who bought the bs that this place is almost heaven. It is an extremely beautiful state with a significant number of extremely brain dead democrat voters who cannot/will not make the connection that a significant direct or indirect employer of West Virginians is the coal industry which is under attack by Maobama and his envirostalinist buddies. Robert KKK Byrd did his work well here. If Joe Manchan III had any integrity on behalf of his state he would be working relentlessly to drag WVA out of the 19th century and he would not be counted as a vote for the US Senate.

West Virginia is a beautiful state - I have driven through the state many times. However, it's not so nice traversing the state on an Amtrak at night. My family did that one time (Cincinnati-Charlottesville). We got a sleeper. Everything was great until the person from the West Virginia Historical Society got on board. She gave a running commentary from one end of the state to the other (who shot who in what hollar - you get the drift). It was broadcast to all the rooms in the sleeper car. Then they forgot to stop at one of the stations along the way, so they slammed on the brakes, and backed up several miles to let one person off. Never again by rail.
