Here is a clip on youtube also of the interview.

elections.foxnews.com...





I personally dont feel the questioning was harsh or beyond what any candidate should have to take. But I find it ironic how she keeps asking about spreading the wealth and turning America into Sweden. The fact is socialism is already here. Most people dont know this because it hasnt been them reaping the effects it has been the top 1% getting the benefits. Biden should of shot that at her instead of stammering and stumbling.

People he didnt cut off this interview they are cutting off FUTURE interviews with these guys because of this interview.

where did "THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN CUT OFF INTERVIEW" occur?? not on this clip, all the questions were answered, then FOX NEWS ended the interview...what's wrong with you people?? and canceling further interviews??? your suprised?? what does karl marx have to do with obama??? that station will just throw out more phony catch phrases for the right- wing to salivate over. why do i get this mental picture of rupert murdock (owner of FOX) sitting in his office with a tight lipped smile and drool running from the corner of his mouth.

This all comes from a blog, you know.

I watched the video and Biden answered all questions, not stumbling or stammering at all... and the interviewer thanked him for the interview. Her questions were ridiculous, in my opinion. Marxism?
C'mon! She sounded like some of the Obama-haters here on ATS instead of the professional she's supposed to be. She put words in his mouth that he DID NOT say and she did a terrible job. I'm surprised she didn't ask why Obama refuses to wear a flag pin or show his birth certificate to the world...

Obama and Biden have given and are continuing to give plenty of interviews. If they don't want to give any more to FOX News, I don't have any problem with that. How likely is it that John McCain or Sarah Palin would grant an interview with Keith Olbermann?

Why should the Obama campaign continue to expose themselves to a barrage of misleading statements in the form of an interview?

As regards canceling a Jill Biden interview, frankly, I like her fine, but that would be like interviewing Todd Palin. Who cares?

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just saw this interview. They look like they are fair and balanced over there. Star for you. I think she made it quite obvious who she is voting for.

I don't see a problem with this... Fox is a hardcore right TV station now-a-days... In fact, I'm kind of shocked Rush Limbaugh doesn't have a regular show there...

just a few more days till all this BS stops...

It's a clip of the interview. Where the clip came from doesn't matter.

She asked tough questions. Joe whined and didn't answer.
Now the Obama camp is taking their ball and running home.

He's just as bad as Govenor Palin dodging the question about Abortuary bombers being terrorists question.

I know. I watched the video and read the story.

The FOX "news" story uses a blog for its source, saying that Obama campaign isn't doing any more interviews.



Now the Obama camp is taking their ball and running home.


THAT'S what's coming from the blog.

At least this woman didn't ask him about his voting record on gun control. Here's a thread i started that has been largely ignored. Everyone flocks to the Palin bashing threads....but everyone seems to ignore this one.

Interesting development on this story.


Well it turns out that her husband, Wade West, is a political and media consultant for Republican politicians. The GOP talking points Barbara West used in her interview may have come directly from the McCain Palin communications team via her husband Wade.

Full article

The combination of this info and the softball McCain interview from West may help explain why the Obama campaign is canceling all future interviews with her.

We are getting a peek into the O'Bama administration and its policy towards a media that's not in the tank for them.

And this from the Huffington Post Blog:


"huffingtonpost.com — Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden gave it to Florida WFTV anchor Barbara West Thursday when she asked him a slew of questions straight out of John McCain's talking points"

So anyone in the media (or plumbing business) asking this campaign tough questions, they "gotta" come straight from "John McCain's talking points"? Give me a break, the only reason these questions sound anything like John McCain talking points is because no one else has had the balls to ask them, and it appears no one ever will again.

This is a glimpse into the O'Bama administration, you better ask nice questions and play along, or you will get no more interviews... Until we can get the "fairness Doctorine" enacted...

Make no mistake about it, the first to go under the O'Bama admin will be freedom of speech, second... guns!
