The audacity of suggesting Barack Obama's "spread the wealth around" is similar to the ideals of the infamous Karl Marx! Why, how dare this uppity naif challenge the mighty messiah in such a televised fashion?! Via Fox:
Barack Obama's campaign killed all interviews with a Florida TV station after Sen. Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, faced tough and critical questions from a reporter at the Orlando station, the Orlando Sentinel reported .The full interview can be seen here.
During a satellite video Thursday, WFTV's Barbara West quoted Karl Marx and asked Biden how Obama's comment to "Joe the Plumber," about spreading the wealth wasn't being Marxist.
"Are you joking?," Biden asked.
West replied, "No."
Biden, too his credit, didn't directly insult the reporter or rail on about her minuscule IQ but the Obama camp did cancel a future interview with Senator Biden's wife with an email that included:
"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election,"Weak. Though for a candidate whose base is rhetoric rather than accomplishment I suppose it's to be expected. Perhaps the large scale media coddling the Obama candidacy has enjoyed has left them soft, extra vulnerable to the media cynicism that's been directed at their opponent.
