So 60 Minutes ran a 40 minute “interview” with President Obama on Sunday night.
So which hard questions did “journalist” Steve Kroft ask Obama:
Did Kroft ask President Obama about how his administration blew $500 million plus in the Solyndra scandal? Nope.
Did Kroft ask about how the Obama administration provided firearms to Mexican drug dealers, in the “Fast And Furious” scandal? Nope.
About Obama has refused to enforce federal laws, that bar illegal immigrants from entering the United States? Nope.
Instead, these were the tough questions offered up by so-called “journalist” Steve Kroft —-
KROFT: Look, you gave up a lot. You said you wanted a balanced approach. You didn’t get it. You cut a trillion dollars and set up the framework to cut another trillion plus and the Republicans gave up nothing . . . . It seems to be all the compromising is being done by you.
Wow, Obama sure is a great guy! And those Republicans? Just plan evil!
And then there was this exchange:
KROFT: You definitely have some impressive accomplishments.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Thank you, Steve.
KROFT: No, you do. And more than a lot of presidents who manage to get reelected . . . .
As the men were talking, text passed across the screen — To Donate To The Obama Campaign: Call This Number Right Now!
Ok, I’m only joking about text passing across the screen. But why not? After all — It’s clear 60 Minutes was campaigning for Obama.
Speaking of jokes — this whole interview was a joke! In fact, it was just like an informercial. Where some model in a short skirt asks the host: “How are you so rich and successful and compassionate and wonderful?”
Finally, if 60 Minutes really were journalists — wouldn’t it have been professional to get a reaction from Republicans? Show portions of the Obama interview to Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan, and let them respond.
Not a chance.
Instead, the last part of the program was an interview with – Warren Buffet, Obama’s loyal supporter!
Obviously, 60 Minutes isn’t involved in journalism. They’re telemarketers! So why doesn’t CBS just give Obama the entire 60 Minutes episode every week, to promote his campaign?
I guess these “journalists” need to some reserve some time to attack Republicans.
