    Re: Louisiana Republican Flees Interview When Asked About Obama's Birthplace

    Wasserman said he attempted to "change the subject" and ask whether she believed Obama was born in the United States. Her aides then ended the interview.

    "When she replied that it was a matter of some controversy, her two campaign consultants quickly whisked her out of the room, accusing me of conducting a 'Palin-style interview,'"
    palin-style interview with a palin-style candidate
    someone who still questions Obama's birth place
    someone who denies global warming and is unable to cite any basis for her refusal to believe it
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Guess she shouldn't have commented on those things beforehand in public eh? Ooops it's all a liberal conspiracy. Liberals aren't supposed to ask questions about whacky comments politicians make.

    The US Senate candidate from Kentucky yesterday stated that Iron Dome protects Israel from terrorists in tunnels. I'm pretty sure every election cycle we are going to see & hear what used to be called gaffes. I believe the new word is "speak-o".

    Oh the CON victim card game.... only problem with this theory, like many other CON theories, is it doesn't follow the facts but makes them up to suit.

    It appears the CON candidate made a statement the interviewer asked her to expand on... why does she believe global warming is a hoax... seems a serious question. She couldn't answer.

    It went south after that...

    This lady was obviously not well prepared for this interview.

    Kind of reminds me of Sarah Palin.

    Any thoughts?
    She is in a tough spot, because she doesn't believe all that crap, like many Republicans. But if she comes out and says it's crap, the Teabaggers are going to create hell for her, and if she accepts the conspiracy theories, then she will look like an extremist, and the Democrats will have a field day with her. She was right in fleeing the interview because it looks like she was being set up.

    If she has stated that she believes Climate Change is a hoax, why shouldn't she be asked about it? It is one of the pressing issues of our time.

    So she hasn't claimed to think GW is a hoax? The article implies she has claimed it's a hoax.

    The Libbo politicos don't get asked stupid questions like these. If you're into idiotic reporters asking idiotic questions, thats your problem, not mine.

    Ah so the "libbo" reporter isn't allowed to ask those questions but she is free to make those stupid comments without being questioned about them? Now, please think before you type your response.

    If Repub candidates quit making stupid comments and having ignorant opinions, politicos wouldn't have to ask them if they are really that stupid.
