Skip to comments.Most Obnoxious Press Questions For Obama: A Roundup (barf alert)
Posted on 03/24/2009 10:21:33 PM PDT by sarcastro
The president fielded questions tonight about his daughters, the attorney general of New York and a kooky Chinese plan for an international currency. Anything on the nitty-gritty of his trillion-dollar bank bailout? Nope.
Oh, sure, some members of the press corps alluded to the bailout when asking why Obama kept his AIG OUTRAGE secret in an evil Nixonian coverup, whether poors have suffered/"sacrificed" enough in the recession and why the country suddenly has a deficit, out of the blue.
The Associated Press even asked why voters should trust the president's financial bailout when all the other government bailouts have gone so terribly, a decent if broad question, and one that could not prompt further substantive, non-grandstanding questions.
The press' questions avoided the issue of the day, favoring more melodramatic themes, especially those from bigwig media types still allowed to ask questions amid the niche-ification of the White House press corps.

What you call "obnoxious press questions", most of us- even a lot of Democrats- call "freedom of the press". I'm sure you wouldn't have a problem with it had these questions been posed to a Republican. It's also quite ironic that Gawker.com, of all sites, would call OTHERS in the media "obnoxious". (pot, kettle, etc.) When you get away from celebrity gossip, and move on (no pun intended) to politics, you just sound like a bunch of hyperpartisans. Give us all a break, and stick to what you know best, will you?
Obama even knew about the questions before hand.
About as kooky as the US trying to devalue the dollar in front of the world.....
The absolute worst question was the one about him being black.
By the way, it seems strange that the author lead with the daughters reference. It may have been in poor taste, not sure. But at least it was pertinent.
“About as kooky as the US trying to devalue the dollar in front of the world.....”
To be fair, everyone with a central bank and fiat currency (which IS everyone) does it.
I agree! Wasn’t that a stupid question? She should of asked him What the hell are you doing being President!
The most transparent government in our history....
