15 Questions The Mainstream Media Would Ask Barack Obama If He Were A Republican
Stocktwits ^ | February 21, 2012 | Jeff Carter

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.

Maybe this author should provide questions to BOR for his next kiss ass interview he does with His Excellency. Seemingly, the guy who watches out for the little guy and who asks the tough question needs help with formulating tough questions such as these when in the aura of His Excellency.

To expect any of the headliner news people from any of the major Media to ask these questions would be the equal of expecting His Excellency to show up for such an event where he has not personally reviewed the questions and had the answers fed into TOTUS.

Simple question. You lied about everything you said you would do. Do you think lying is a trait the President of the United States should have?

Good article - helps put questions about past references to Satan and private marital history in perspective.

“If you deny that there is liberal bias in the mainstream media, you are living under a rock.”

Liberal bias is putting it mildly. It’s downright leftist propaganda and news shaping of the worst kind to fit the liberal agenda. The MSM is totally corrupt.

In return, a question for Jeff Carter. Since every one of your 15 questions were racially biased and showed you obvious racism, shouldn’t you just go into some dark dungeon and stay there or maybe, (as once suggested to one of Clinton’s aides) commit suiy-cide?

Yet I have a liberal friend that believes “liberal bias” in the media is nothing but a myth. The thing is, I think he actually believes it. So it seems liberals can’t see evil when it’s right in front of them or complete media bias, coincidence?

I’ll be the first to say Fox has a right leaning view, the difference is that they’re not trying to convince you otherwise.

Bill O’Reilley isn’t really that smart. I doubt he realizes we are talking about him when we write BOR.

Bill or any of you other Fox News Obama sycophants that might be reading FR to see what we are thinking, stop merging with the leftist media. Get the job done. Research, report, and let us decide.

It is what got you the big ratings, but you have been moving away from that, and we have been moving away from you.

Fox doesn’t lean right. They have a few conservative commentators and some leftist ones. Overall, they are center to center left and are drifting more left every day.

I wish we fox would get rid of a few of their goofy lefties - Juan Williams, Shep Smith, Geraldo Rivera, Greta Van Susteren. Move BOR to Greta’s spot, put Hannity in BOR’s spot, give Megyn Kelley Hannity’s old slot, and bring back Judge Napolitano and put in in Shep Smith’s spot.

*We need to wait until Ron Paul either drops out or until after the election to bring back Judge Nap.

Sir/Madam,

I have read all fifteen questions and fail to discern anything the slightest bit racist about them.

Are you sure that you belong here at Free Republic?

Liberals can’t let go of their belief system for three key reasons: (1) liberalism is a “feel good” ideology that allows people to hold themselves up as being altruistic regardless of how much they covet wealth (and they all do); (2) liberals are incapable of acknowledging any consequences of their policies or their long term negative impacts on society; and (3) most liberals’ income depends one way or another on government largesse.

Liberals are also immune to facts. I once had a liberal PhD tell me that “Bush stole the election” despite all evidence to the contrary.

If Obama were a Republican, these questions are much too kind. And too thoughtful.

Not everything. He did say that he’d make gas prices skyrocket.

“Bill O’Reilley isn’t really that smart.”

Worth repeating. I DVR BOR and Hannity and then watch/listen to them as I get ready for work in the mornings. While listening to him this morning, I was actually thinking, “wow, he really isn’t as smart as he thinks he is...”

Luckily, I listen to Mark Levin during my 20 minute commute.....

I really enjoy Levin. I hated his insults on “birthers”, but I don’t expect to 100% agree with anyone.
