    It's also kryptonite to a good percentage of the liberals on this board.

    No politician will, or should, allow the interviewer to create the message the politician wants to deliver. Interviewers can't be trusted to serve the public's interest with their questions.

    When asked to give a simple, yes or no response to a hypothetical pollster asking, “do you approve of the job President Obama is doing?” Shaheen responded, “in some ways I approve, and some things I don't approve,” a line that caused the audience to start laughing. She continued “like most questions that we deal with as policymakers there aren’t simple answers, yes or no.”

    cont... Audience Laughs at Shaheen for Ducking Question on Obama


    So she votes with Obama 99% of the time and somehow can't answer the question?

    Watching dems jump ship is well, entertaining. Anybody else want some popcorn?
    You know, the audience did laugh. But I think she handled that question in a pretty savvy way. It is not like Grimes, perhaps Shaheen learned a bit from Grimes mistake. What she said makes sense regardless of her voting record and how many voters are going to go home and check out her record to see how many times or what percentage of times she supported the president.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    So her answer is the interviewers fault? Where were you in the 2012 election?

    True, but it still is fun watching the tapdance.
