Obama Goes On Fox News And Lives To Tell The Tale!

Wow! A prominent liberal Democrat showed his face on the uber-conservative, cruel, relentless, Democrat-lynching, liberal-bashing, evil Fox News Channel! Is Obama okay? Did he survive? Is he in a wheelchair now? Did any blood transfusions have to take place? NO! He is perfectly fine, and would you think it, the discourse was civil! Heaven forbid that a network has a few anchors that are openly conservative as to take the guesswork out of deciphering any media bias! Obama actually accepts an invitation to appear on the network (as many Democrats are fearful to do, as they might have a conservative ask them a question) and he was treated with the utmost decency and was not torn apart! Maybe the network that says it is "fair and balanced" actually is in some ways. Sure there are many openly conservative people on the show, but at least you know that. Asking difficult questions should be at the forefront of any campaign. Democrats often shy away from Fox News, as there are conservatives there that may challenge them with a tough question. It is a lot easier to go on a show that's sympathetic to the Democratic cause on a different network and answer questions like "what's your favorite beer?" "What kind of car do you drive?" "What size shoe do you wear?" Those questions have zero substance to them and have nothing to do with policymaking. He goes on Fox that might challenge him, and he might get a question like "What exactly was your relationship with Reverend Wright?" "How exactly do you intend to fix Social Security?" Things that are important and tough are also tough to answer, so why not interview on the channel that asks you: Coke or Pepsi?
