Tuesday and Thursday
Things I wish Obama would have said in response to dumb questions asked by George Stephanopoulos.
By now everyone is familiar with the idiotic questions ABCNooziz Georges Gibson and Stephanopoulos asked of both Senators Obama and Clinton during last week's debate. But I focus on Stephanopoulos, because he seems to have a knack for asking Obama utterly moronic questions. For instance, the question about Obama's "cool style" comes from a one-on-one interview back in May, 2007.
STEPHANOPOULOS: You have a very cool style when you're doing those town meetings, when you're out on the campaign trail. And I wonder, how much of that is tied to your race?
OBAMA: That's interesting.
Shortly after that interview, Charlton McIlwain and Stephen Maynard Caliendo co-blogged their dismay:
We LOVE the response. “It’s interesting,” which means, “what the hell is THAT supposed to mean?! All black people are ‘cool?’”
Lastly, Think Progress has the audio clip making the Hannity-Stephanopoulos connection.
HANNITY: There are two questions that I don’t think anybody has asked Barack Obama, and I don’t know if this is going to be on your list tomorrow. One is – the only time he’s ever been asked about his association with Bill Ayers, the unrepentant terrorist from the Weather Underground who on 9/11 of all days in the New York Times was saying “I don’t regret setting bombs. I don’t think we did enough.” When asked about it by the Politico, David Axelrod said that they have a friendly relationship, and that they had done a number of speeches together and that they sat on a board together. Is that a question you might ask?
STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, I’m taking notes right now.
