Barbara West Interviews Joe Biden (Must See Video; Biden Shocked, Asked if Obama Plan is Marxism)
WFTV ^ | Thursday, October 23, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 10/24/2008 8:43:03 PM PDT by kristinn

Florida TV reporter Barbara West asked hard hitting questions of Joe Biden in an interview broadcast yesterday.

Biden was shocked when asked if Obama's spread the wealth plan was Marxist.

The four minute interview was not the typical softball CNN-MSNBC-ABC-CBS-NYT-LAT-WAPO-AP questions.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the Obama campaign was furious at West and called her "unprofessional" and "combative".

Biden also specifically denied Obama's plan was to "spread the wealth," a direct contradiction of what Obama famously told Joe the Plumber.

He was insulted, then talked about spreading the wealth around.

Biden is Obama’s running mate, but apparently they don’t speak...about anything pertinent to the election.

Wow, someone actually got a question past the National Socialist ENEMEDIA censors!!

I'm impressed.

Of course they will be looking for change, while they are building the economy from the bottom up by working the newspaper squeegee man position for the rest of their life.

Florida TV reporter Barbara West had better be prepared for a full anal exam by the dimocRATS and the msm. The character assassination is probably already in progress.

But no comment on the CNN Troll who attacked Governor Palin with the out of context comments attacking her personally.

Hey Plugs, the truth hurts.

Pray that a majority of the voters in this Country come to their senses before November 4th.

Exactly. They have some time now that they've completed the anal exam of Joe the Plumber.

You'd think in their downtime they could pick an issue about Obama just to stay sharp, but the appear to have blinders on when they cast their gaze his way.

That barak thinks he is entitled to softball questions says more about him than it does about Barbara West.

Gee, barry, just imagine where you would be if you had to face real scrutiny like that from day one.

At about four minutes you can see her resign herself to the realization that Senator Government's minion will never willingly answer truthfully. Finally an honest and courageous journalist asked some pointed questions.

Yes, but too bad she never learned about the follow up in Journalism School. The middle class did rather well with the Bush Tax cuts. My wife and i have saved about $17,000 in federal taxes over the last four years. Four grand a year is hardly chump change. I have no idea how the GOP lets them get away with this nonsense. The tax rates dropped 2-3 % for the middle class with Bush’s cuts. And no on asks Biden what’s going to happen when the Dems let those cuts expire in 2010.

This is the best interview I've seen with the Dem candidates....by far.

As usual the Dem campaign filed a complaint. What would Obama/Biden do if they had been under the attack Sarah and her family have been under?

I've not heard Biden questioned about Hunter (?) Biden.

Biden's response "I don't know who's writing your questions." was particularly illustrative of that old bastard's mindset.

I don't know whether he was being conspiratorial or merely sexist, but he couldn't imagine that this woman was actually questioning the goodness of the holy one's message.

Chicks are supposed to dig this crap, in ol' Joe's mind. And chicks in the press are really supposed to be friendly and on their side!

Obviously some sinister men were filling her head with nonsense.

I am so preconditioned to only GOP candidates being asked these questions that I am a bit stunned by this interview.

Barbara West, kudos to you.

Should have asked about the Bush tax cuts ending, therefore increasing taxes on those making over $14k, but otherwise a perfect interview.

“But no comment on the CNN Troll who attacked Governor Palin with the out of context comments attacking her personally.”

Greta talked about this tonight. The CNN reporter who was interviewing Gov. Palin apologized to Byron York and his paper but NOT to Gov. Palin. Greta said he should go on T.V. and make as big a deal about the apology as the question and do it 3-4 times.

Am I the only one holding my breath that this will happen???

From Rules for Radicals, Alinsky outlines his strategy in organizing, writing:

"There's another reason for working inside the system. Dostoevsky said that taking a new step is what people fear most. Any revolutionary change must be preceded by a passive, affirmative, non-challenging attitude toward change among the mass of our people. They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and change the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution."[2]

I lived in Orlando for years and Barbara West has been at WFTV-9 for at least 20 years - she’s a fixture in Orlando and tough as sh*t. I loved that she had the nerve to actually ask questions the Orlando Sentinel would never do.

We should be thanking for doing her job and not sucking up. And her bosses need to know we appreciate her too:

Joe Biden cannot answer straight questions without lying! Should we be surprised, he’s a damned Democrat! ... Obama while on the boards of the Woods Foundation and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge funneled huge reserves of cash to ACORN and subunits of ACORN. Obama trained ACORN team coordinators. Obama represented ACORN in the motor voter lawsuit ... I mean, Joe lies repeatedly and the Lady just moves to another topic instead of nailing his ass over his blatant lies! That big grin while fabricating replies that this lying snark knows are lies is just too much. I had to stop watching at about minute two. This democrat party and particularly the democrat ticket has as their director the father of lies a murderer from the start. Disgusting.

Biden was also very careful to phrase the Acorn response "our campaign has never given Acorn money"!

Nobody's saying "your campaign" gave Acorn money, you cornrowed chompertoothed idiot.

The fact is that you and your idiot boss have voted again and again to pay them with our tax dollars!

Not to nitpick, but she could have asked some better follow ups. Still I'm very grateful she hit him hard with the initial shots. Great left jab, needs to work on the right uppercut.

Also, what's with the chichlet white teeth and the man-tan?

Handlers must be trying to make him look “good”. That buttoned up shirt must be hiding a few sagging neck wrinkles as well.
