A New Playbook For Reporters

Finally, some of the press is beginning to learn that Obama puts his pants on the same way they do. He doesn’t magically, snap his fingers or wiggle his nose and clothing appears on his body. He is mortal.

In a recent interview by a Texas reporter, Obama was visibly upset by the audacity of the reporter’s method. The guy used the O’Reilly technique of asking a question in the middle of Obama’s standard answers. WFAA Reporter Brad Watson from the Dallas-Fort Worth area held his ground and continued to press for answers Obama was not prepared to answer. Later, Obama chastised the man for interrupting him.

During the 2008 campaign, Obama and his minions controlled the message to the press by feeding them snippets of the campaign script. The press loved it because they didn’t have to use any brain power to think of questions to ask. Could it be that a new generation of reporters, has grown up with the internet and have trained themselves to obtain answers by cutting and pasting with a few button pushes? Have reporters forgotten that direct questions provide real answers? Joe the Plumber was the only one who ever asked Obama a direct question during the 2008 campaign that he answered extemporaneously, and we learned a lot from that response.

A few brave reporters have written a new playbook, and I fully expect to see more courageous writers enter the game. By challenging the president and his administration with serious questions, and insisting the questions not be responded to with pre-rehearsed answers we will begin to see the true Obama emerge as a man who wants to rule the world at our expense.

  1. A man shows his true intelligence when asked a question he didn’t rehearse. Need I say more.

  3. Hopefully this trend of new reporters spreads like the plague. We need to use our voice before they take that away too.
