"Red or green?": President Obama tackles the serious questions


On Thursday NBC's Andrea Mitchell asked Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt: "When is he going to be accessible for questions other than to People magazine and Entertainment Tonight?" LaBolt replied: "I wouldn't assume that, if he's in a local market, that the reporters' questions will be any less serious."

Well, on Friday, President Obama had an interview on a local radio station in New Mexico. As you can hear on this VIDEO, these are some of those "serious questions," along with a couple of the president's answers:

"Our big question is, red or green?" (i.e., chile peppers). The president's answer: "Red--although, every once in a while, green is solid."

Peppering the president with more tough questions: "What's your favorite New Mexican food?" "Now, if we were to visit Chicago, what would you recommend if I wanted to go eat some really good soul food?" "Mr. President, I wanted to know--we're a pop music station--what's your favorite song to work out to?"

Stepping it up a notch: "If you had a superpower, what would it be?" The president's answer: "Uh, you know, I think the whole flying thing is pretty good. Yeah, I mean, you can't beat just kinda swoopin' around."

Finally, on one of the burning issues of our day: "Mr. President, I know your real favorite song has gotta be 'Call Me Maybe.' You can tell us, it's OK."

Whew! Some hard-hitting questions there! Such intense scrutiny from the media! How does this man handle it?

ABC's Devin Dwyer notes: "Obama last took questions from the White House press corps at a news conference during the G20 summit in Chicago in June. His last formal White House news conference was on March 6." Well, look, Devin, the president has been JUST A LITTLE BIT BUSY, hasn't he, these past few months. I mean, checking out the effect of the drought on our nation's golf courses, settling our relations with chile, dealing with a new superpower, helping mentally challenged radio hosts in New Mexico keep their jobs. . . . This is a tall order. You expect him to answer questions on the economy and jobs and the national debt too?? Like, without a teleprompter?? Come on!

As you might expect, the DUmmies and the KOmmies have been avoiding this story. But there is a thread on it on HuffPo, namely, this THREAD, "White House Press Corps Wonders When Obama Will Actually Take Their Questions." We'll find some comments there.

So let us now hear the HUffies defend the president's softball interviews, in Red Hot Chile Pepper Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who would like to ask the president one question--"Mr. President, come January, what will be your forwarding address?"--is in the [Barackets]:

I have seen lots of interviews that he has had in recent days. The Washington media is not the only one. I thought the view was he needed to get out of the bubble.

[The president is no longer bubble-ready.]

He IS Superman.

[Faster than a speeding softball . . . More powerful than a local radio show . . . Able to dodge tough questions in a single soundbite . . . Look! Up on the stage! It's a duck! And it's lame! No, it's . . . SWOOPERMAN!]


when they start acting like journalists then he should talk to them.

[That didn't stop him before now.]

Why should Obama take time to answer their questions? He has a busy schedule unlike Romney who spends all his time running around the country and campaigning. . . .

[Yeah! Obama spends all his time running around the country and campaigning PLUS going to Hollywood fundraisers PLUS playing golf PLUS answering questions about chile peppers from some oafs in New Mexico!]

F 'em, they aren't truth tellers and they aren't real journalists.

[Yes, we know that. And they're mostly Democrat shills. And he won't even take questions from THEM??]

Obama is our sitting President!!

[Now he's our SWOOPIN' President!!]

I say, Go pres Obama, Go, Go. Go.

[That's what I say, too! Go, and never come back!]

Anyone remember just weeks ago when the President did answer questions and was shouted down by the guy from the Daily Caller?

[No, actually, the president WASN'T answering questions, so the guy from the Daily Caller tried to get one in before Mr. Chicken ran away. "Caller Me Maybe" is NOT on his iTunes playlist.]

Well, he won't get to dodge questions during the debates.

[CNN's Candy Crowley: "Mr. President, do you agree with me that Gov. Romney's choice of Paul Ryan looks a little bit like some sort of ticket death wish?"]

Obama is an open book on policy and history.
[An open book with several hundred pages missing.]

The White House Press has a better chance of getting an audience with Honey Boo Boo.

["Miss Boo Boo, what is it that makes you holler?" "A dolla makes me holla, Honey Boo Boo!"]

If I were the President and had a member of the White House press behave so badly, like Neil Munro from . . . The Daily Caller, did...I would let them all sit and wait.

["Mr. President, what makes YOU holler?" "The Daily Calla makes me holla, Honey BO BO!"]

Everyone knows President Obama has never been afraid to answer tough questions.

[Such as these . . .]


"Stop! Who would cross the Bridge of Death must answer me these questions three, ere the other side he see."


"Ask me the questions, bridge-keeper! I'm not afraid."


"What . . . is your name?"


"Mm, mm, mm, Barack Hussein Obama!"


"What . . . is your quest?"


"To radically transform America into a European-style socialist state."


"What . . . is your favorite color chile pepper?"


"Red. . . . No, green!"

The press isn't going to ask him tough questions because for the most part they are his advocates and do their best to cover up his follies.

The MAIN reason they may be whining is they are not getting what they think is the blessing they should get from their god, The Obamassiah.

Next stop on Obama's reelection tour is Lawndale Jr. High where the President will fact tough questions from the school newspaper staff.

"Mr. Presdient, boxers or briefs?"

Even troglaman must be coming to the realization that he supports a true lightweight, a man of no consequence.

You realize that Troglaman The Vicious Lying Hate Mongering Racist Anti-American Guttersnipe of the DUmmie FUnnies Blog Site is himself an intellectual lightweight and a man of no consequence, right? So expecting Guttersnipe to come to that realization is something that will never happen particularly since his automatic response when his extremely shallow intellectual capacity is overwhelmed by reality or logical argument is to repeatedly power-slam his head as far up his ass as possible.

I still think Obama as the "Uncle Ben's Rice" guy would have been a better choice, PJinc. But, you wily devil, you could still pull him out before the election...Uncle Ben, that is. Could be a game breaker. And let's not forget you still have Aunt Jamima and Sambo's Pancakes waiting in the wings!

Convince me this doesn't make PJinc an douche bag. Dare you. Can't wait.

Corona, I agree with you.

However in their defense, troglaman has offered nothing in the way of inspirational argument fare. Or for that matter intelligible argument fare. If all troglaman offers is garbage then "garbage in, garbage out" applies in this case.

I know. Much longer than a year. Do you begin to understand why a wombat would conclude you're all brain-dead?

But TUMmy's got a brain-cheese problem, I think. Like a can of Cheese Whiz, if you hold the button down too long, you're fucked. He's only got so much to give, corona (you heartless bastard). Stinkwagon, on the other hand, has bodies buried in the basement. Most likely dismembered bodies with dismembered heads up dismembered asses.

But as I, troglaman, have long said - You hurt the one you love and love the one you're with. Or something like that.

So what is it with this Akin guy? He's been a Congressman for 16 or 18 years and is running for US senate in MO. And he says shit like “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” He knows this because of "Dr's he's talked to."

I don't have trouble with the "legitimate rape" part. Why? Because what he meant was a 'real' rape as opposed to a false charge. He was qualifying. Big deal.

The part that interests me is the "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down" according to Dr's he's talked to. According to Akin (and the Dr's he's talked to), it's a rare event.

He makes what appear to be factual statements. He expects people to swallow. And you do! I guarantee this is not the first time he's spewed this shit. If you watch the video, he expresses these "facts" confidently. Every word is a falsity. A lie. Believe me? Of course not!

And on a related topic, Akin and Ryan co-sponsored a bill a while back that would have made an abortion for an impregnated rape victim illegal.

You jack-plugs have seriously lost your collective mind. Nothing makes sense coming from you screwballs.

How the fuck would I know? Last I checked, most rapes and ALL abortions are performed on women. So unless you're female, troglANON, you don't know shit either.

I can tell you this...if my daughter-wife-sister were raped and impregnated, and bearing the child of their rapist was mandated by federal law? I'd have a problem with it. You obviously wouldn't. You somehow know better.

You really want this? Tell me the truth. You want your country to be like this?

Of course you do! Sing it from the highest mountain top you nutbag. Like I, the wise and mighty trog, said months ago...you all are doing the heavy lifting for us. You can't help it. Keep it up.

Distinctions indeed, dear sir. Would you be surprised to learn that it was not MY distinction, but one of YOUR keen brethren that came up the following?

"troglaman is monologuing like a b-movie villain that doesn't realize his Fortress OF Evil is collapsing around him"

Does that refresh your memory, Champ? I didn't say it.

But I appreciated the characterization for some twisted reason. I admit it.

I give you my blessing to adopt a distinction that I wrote and you ask me if I'm surprised to learn that I wrote it. Considering that I wrote it my memory didn't need refreshing, but thank you for your consideration.

"But I appreciated the characterization"

Glad to be of service.

Me can talk down to all of you because since me am brilliant, you am not and since you not brilliant, you am racist stupids so me have to educate you since you am lying racists because me am brilliant.

If you're asking Troglatwit for focus, be forewarned...that worthless son of a worthless fucking bastard is only tolerable when he's not focused...when he does have some semblance of focus it is usually while unleashing a hate-filled howling crazed rant that annoys the hell out of everyone.

And Troglatwit is always all over the map, focused or not. That's the only consistent thing about that worthless son of a worthless fucking bastard.

I appreciated the distinction because it was odd. Is that somehow too "all over the map" for you? Let's remind everyone of what you said...

"troglaman is monologuing like a b-movie villain that doesn't realize his Fortress OF Evil is collapsing around him"

Sort of like the bad guy in Conan the Barbarian? Was there a volcano involved?

I, troglaman, simply can't take this as anything less than a compliment.
