RNC on Obama’s interviews: “This is not a parody”

Heh. Because it’s Friday, and it’s funny — on air yesterday with Obama campaign press secretary Ben LaBolt, and again today with DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, MSNBC hostess Andrea Mitchell wondered aloud about the growing sentiment that President Obama doesn’t seem to make himself much available for hard-hitting press coverage.
Both LaBolt and DWS maintained that the President does indeed answer difficult questions on the regular, but as the RNC points out with this latest web vid… Mr. Obama does seem to have a penchant for setting himself up to field softballs.
President Obama just wrapped up another hard-hitting interview where he discussed America’s top concerns, like whether our president prefers green or red chiles, his take on “Call Me Maybe,” and what superpower he wished he had. It’s been over eight weeks since President Obama took a question from the White House Press Corps.
