You don't believe that in a televised debate with Mitt and Hillary that the media would dare call her rude, do you?
If he can't handle rude, how's he gonna handle Chavez, Ahmanutjob of Iran, the press corps in a press conference? Helen Thomas and Martha Ratditz. You want rude, THEY'LL give you rude!
None of the televised political “debates” I recall were true debates between politicians. If she can’t ask him a question, then she can’t cut him off as he tries to answer. In a way, the same applies to Chavez, etc. I think President Bush handled Saddam Hussein well, and with decorum too.
“If he can’t handle rude, how’s he gonna handle ...the press corps in a press conference?”
That question applies to ALL Republican politicians. Democrats don’t have that problem as they only allow themselves to be interviewed by liberals Democrats.
The liberal press is always dangerous. They are usually dangerous through loaded questions, rather than overt rudeness. I’ve seen Newt Gingrich perform masterfully with a hostile press. He handled a gaggle by insisting on one question at a time without interruption. Then he dispatched each idiot, one at a time. I saw Bush go toe to toe with some jerk. As far as I can tell, Romney handles the press as well as anybody. Time will tell.
Bush has handled rude people very well and so would Mitt.
