Questions for Obama 4

The only thing they [the left-biased questioners in the GOP debates] don’t ask Republican candidates about much is economic questions and debt questions. Instead they ask horribly slanted, often irrelevant questions designed to make them look bad and help Obama. … Newt’s rise was because of the way he attacked the media and Obama in the debates because of the stupid and obviously planted questions. So, what would happen if the mainstream media treated Barack Obama the exact same way they treat Republicans?

Jeff Carter at Townhall asks the questions that the mainstream media will never ask Barack Obama, but should. From his list of 15, we’ve selected these:

1) Numerous Mexican citizens and an American citizen have been murdered with weapons knowingly provided to criminals by our own government during Operation Fast and Furious. If Eric Holder was aware that was going on, do you think he should step down as Attorney General? Were you aware of Fast and Furious and if so, shouldn’t you resign?  

2) In 2010 you said Solyndra, a company that donated heavily to your political campaign, was “leading the way toward a brighter and more prosperous future.” Today, Solyndra is bankrupt and the taxpayers lost over $500 million on loans that your administration knew might never be paid off when you made them. How do you respond to citizens who say this is evidence of corruption in your administration?  

3) Unions invested a lot of time and money in helping to get you elected. In return, unions gained majority control of Chrysler, the taxpayers lost $14 billion dollars on General Motors, and General Motors received a special $45 billion dollar tax break. What do you say to people who view this as corruption on a scale never before seen in American history?

4) Through dubious means you and your Democrat allies in Congress managed to force through an incredibly unpopular health care bill that helped lead to the worst election night for the Democratic Party in 50 years. Since the bill has passed, many of your claims about the bill have proven to be untrue. …  Many large companies (that donate to Democrat political campaigns) have received special exemptions from the health care plan. Since the majority of the American people have rejected your health care reform and it doesn’t do what you said it would, shouldn’t you work with the Republicans to repeal it?0

5) When you took office, the national average for one gallon of gas was $1.89 per gallon. Since then, you’ve demonized the oil industry, dramatically slowed offshore drilling, blocked ANWAR, and rejected the Keystone Pipeline. Now, gas is $3.54 per gallon and rising and is expected to reach $5 per gallon by May of this year. How much higher do you anticipate driving gas prices?

6) Occupy Wall Street has been protesting against Wall Street and the richest 1 percent in America. You are in the top 1 percent of income earners in America and you have collected more cash from Wall Street than any other President in history. So, aren’t you exactly the sort of politician that Occupy Wall Street wants to get rid of?

7) How do you decide which foreign leaders to submissively bow towards and why do you think that’s appropriate for an American President? …

10) America lost its AAA credit rating for the first time under your watch. What do you think you should have done differently to have prevented that historic failure? …

12) Back in July, you said, “Nobody’s looking to raise taxes right now. We’re talking about potentially 2013 and the out years.” Since you plan to raise taxes if you’re elected and you’ve had kind words for a value added tax, shouldn’t every American expect a tax increase if you’re reelected?

13) Why should the American people reelect you when your 10 year budget saddles America with more debt than all previous Presidents combined?

14) Your stimulus bill cost more in real dollars than the moon landing and the interstate highway system combined. Many prominent economists have concluded the stimulus plan was a total failure. What do we have to show for all of that money spent?

15) Members of your administration promised that the trillion dollar stimulus would keep unemployment under 8 percent. Instead, we’ve had 35+ months of 8% and above unemployment. Doesn’t that mean …  a trillion dollars [were wasted] on nothing?

To hear those questions asked … to watch Obama’s stumbling attempts to answer them … wouldn’t it be luverly ?

    Absolutely, certainly and indubitably.

      Obama must be giving himself “high fives” for pulling off the most outlandish sham and con game our nation has ever experienced . What horrifies me is that with the gullible populace we have , biased media and corrupt political body , he could very well be re-elected. If that happens , then our great society and nation will be reduced to third world status for sure.

    Yes, it would be awesome to see this happen, though we all know it won’t. 
    And even if he were asked, he would simply tell bold faced lies, as usual.  
    That seems to be his favorite tactic – do something (like ban drilling) and then brag about how you are doing just the opposite (like increasing our energy supplies while saving us from the evil fat cat oil companies at the same time!)  And count on the fact that most of your voters are too busy standing in line at Acorn for their handout to pay attention. 

  • President Obama will never answer these questions even if asked directly.

    Like all serious press inquiries, he will lend the podium to his teleprompter until it runs out of words, after which he will mumble incoherent strings of words (not quite sentences), which will arouse the emotions of his bleeding-heart sycophantic base while simultaneously hoodwinking them.

    Should I ever get the opportunity to see this President while he is in office, I’ll be sure to test my theory out.
