Biden Angry Reporter Asked Tough Questions

The Obama campaign will no longer allow interviews with the WFTV news station because a reporter had asked Senator Biden some tough questions.

A Florida Reporter from station WFTV asked Senator Biden about Acorn, Spreading the Wealth, and Obama's preparedness to be Commander and Chief. Senator Biden, as the questions progressed, appeared to get angrier and angrier and began responding with sarcasm.

Barbara West quoted Karl Marx and asked if the comment about "spreading the wealth" wasn't being Marxist.

"Are you joking?" Biden exclaimed.

West then asked if Biden was implying America was no longer the world's leading power when he said that if Obama wins, he would be quickly tested as president.

"I don't know who's writing your questions," Biden responded.

According to an Orlando Sentinel blog. the Obama camp then killed the station's interview with Biden's wife. They report that Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign, wrote, "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."
