"He is suggesting he isn't really the guy he says he is, the President of the United States, I am going to start with Pat because I am looking around for "birthers" and I consider a 'birther', and this is my rule Pat, my colleague, anybody who has questions, anybody who thinks this is a significant issue in this campaign coming up. Is this a significant issue to you?"So, how about if I ask Chris this one:
"First let me tell you that I am looking for morons, and dear colleague, my rule is that anyone that believes the US would be well served if Obama won a second term is a clear cut moron. Are you, Chris, someone who thinks the country would be well served if Obama served a second term?"Loaded questions don't lead one to informative answers. I guess Chris missed that one in j-school.
Pat goes on to point out that whether he believes it or not is immaterial, and if Chris is troubled by people asking this question then perhaps the president should put the question to bed and answer it, once and for all, and while he is at it, why not release his grades and LSAT scores? Why not be transparent? All are excellent questions, for which Chris and smiling Terry did not condescend to answer.
Informing the public, seeking answers to questions, these used to be the stuff for news men. No more. Chris doesn't care much about the questions.
Pat's final comment:
"You're supposed to be a journalist."Amen to that.
Update April 27th
Apparently the president has released the sought after information. Smitty has commentary on it here. Jill weighs in here. Nice to know Barry's done goofing around...
... or is he?
