I had to facepalm when I heard Obama say this at a press conference on Monday January 14, 2013: “I won’t have this discussion with a gun at the head of Americans.” Here is a the video of this ridiculous statement:
I had to make something up about it:
And not one reporter called him on this. Excuse me, but doesn’t everything you do involve a gun to everyone’s head? Seriously, could the man have made it any easier for reporters?
Silly me, I must be mistaken, they wouldn’t allow real reporters near politicians; they may ask serious questions. With the exception of Jan Helfeld [his interview with us can be heard here], I have never seen or heard a reporter ever ask a really tough question to a politician. You will never hear someone like Obama called out on something like this. An honest reporter, interested in the truth would have asked Obama a question along these lines:
Why is it OK to put guns to the people’s heads for the support of the government and to get compliance, but not in this instance?
That would be real journalism though, and you’re not going to get that from any media near Obama.
