Even a casual observer could appreciate the sardonic attitude of the press corp which shamelessly peppered President Obama with patronizing questions during last night’s prime time presidential news conference. The members of the Fourth Estate were hurling needlessly hardball queries and the gotcha environment seemed to make rabid the reporters infeseting the White House. They were, sadly, more preoccupied with embarrassing a great leader than giving him a fair shake as he tries to solve the problems he inherited from a corpulent regime. So here are the fair questions that should have been asked; which would have enhanced the knowledge of our relatively new commander in chief.
Mr. President, if you had to be the rabbit or the hare, which would you be?
Mr. President, which actor best played a president – Michael Douglas or Martin Sheen?
Mr. President, as a follow up, have you ever watched the West Wing and do you get ideas from that program?
Mr. President, if you could be a flower, which flower would you be?
Mr. President, which is your favorite ride at Walt Disney World; Pirates of the Caribbean or Space Mountain?
Mr. President, when you looked into the eyes of Hugo Chavez, what did you see?
Mr. President, do you like baseball and hotdog’s?
Mr. President, isn’t it true that the Republicans are a party of dinosaurs, destined for eventual extinction?
Mr. President, why is Rush Limbaugh so fat when you are so completely buff and so totally handsome?
Mr. President, should Americans floss their teeth?
Mr. President, isn’t it true that people love you a wicked lot?
Mr. President, when all our media outlets endorse you for reelection in 2012, will you let us ask you some more questions like these?
