    It doesn't matter if Romney answers the left wing media's questions or not. The media will still hate him so why should he. The media lost journalistic integrity a long time ago. I learned in the Marine Corps that respect is earned, the media has done nothing to earn Romney's respect.

    I say, when Obama answers all the questions that the American people have regarding the four Heroes killed in
    Benghazi, then, and only then, should Romney be expected to answer one question. How about leveling the playing field?!

    Excellent post, the MSM has been in the bag for Obama for so long. They have rendered themselves meaningless. One paper and only one, the WSJ, at least presents all the facts. One out of how many? is just not enough. No wonder we have a plethora of low information voters. MSM has made sure they get only the information they deem necessary, necessary that is to keep Obama's head above water and get him reelected.

    That's okay it's been years since Obama answered questions at a press conference and even longer for the Senate to pass a budget. Why should Romney answer questions posed by a bunch of left wing journalists that will do anything to ensure Obama's re election?

    You claim that "it's been years since Obama answered questions at a press conference" so I wonder which part of "Obama has been interviewed on the Tonight Show, on MTV, and in Rolling Stone, among other outlets" did you not understand in this article? Plus, there have been numerous press conferences from the White House press room and Rose Garden in which Obama has answered questions from various reporters who were present. It's amazing how facts just never get past that "liberals bad, conservatives good" bubble between your ears. I'm not a Democrat but and Independent, and I don't much like Obama either, but please try not to lie in your comments here.

    @Denizen_Kate why don't you Google, Obama's last press conference. I may have exaggerated a bit but to consider The View or letterman, hell what's the difference he's never asked tough questions anyway by the White House press corps.

    Obama lies incessantly. Am I exaggerating?

    @Denizen_Kate Obama lies about republicans and or bush causing the recession, a subject he spews continually in every campaign speech. Yeah I think incessantly is pretty close. Maybe not every sentence but he lies in every speech at least once.

    @DominicSarno wait wait wait wait....stop the presses. Are you telling me that a DEMOCRAT said something not nice about a REPUBLICAN? What purpose would that serve, it's not like the two parties compete against each other for political power is it?

    I'll let the sarcasm train pass by now without holding it up with my baggage anymore.

    There is a certain GOP symmetry here. Gov Romney is ducking the press while apparently nobody can get Donald Trump to shut the hell up. :-)

    It's funny how not one conservative was pushing to make Bush answer questions about 9/11, whether or not the White House knew about the potential attack or even Iraq, whether or now they lied about "weapons of mass destruction". Obama should't answer questions about Benghazi, there is going to be a trail. Now stop trying to make a political issue from a tragic event.

    Thank you. The right is only pushing this issue for political reason. There are some things that cannot be talked about. Also 9/11 and Iraq, 8,000+ lives lost. Whenever someone says that they knew about the 9/11 attack you're a "conspiracy theorist" or want answer about the lie that put us in Iraq you're "UN-american". The hypocrisy is mind blowing.

    Have you ever heard the old saying, damned if you do, damned if you don't? With the left leaning, dishonest media, why should he? I don't blame him whatsoever. They would try to distort him as they praise Obama with his horrid record!

    In addition, who watches the liberal media? We certainly don't, couldn't tell you who the anchors are because I have a negative opinion of the Obama-leaning networks and don't view!

    The campaign finally figured out that the only way to prevent Romney from reversing himself was to keep him from answering questions at all.

    I wonder how the people in New England feel about him swooping in for a photo op in some of the controlled areas, before being whisked away to another campaign stop?

    I wonder if the Governor's indifference to 14 questions about his FEMA comments stimulated Mr. O'Donnell's observation?

    Wow, gee, let me see, why would Romney not want to get engaged with the MSM? Well, maybe because every word he utters to them is twisted, spun and misquoted? That's a start. But let's discuss this supposed 22 whole days, three weeks. Obama went 7 weeks without a presser and then when he finally did show up for a question or two, answered none of them really, but did manage to put forth all his campaign rhetoric which the MSM slavishly lapped up like a kitten does a bowl of cream. Now, is Obama talking about Benghazi? Nope. Has he held a presser regarding Benghazi? Nope. Other than the Photo Op in NJ had Obama made any remarks or done anything for the poor suffering people of NY and NJ? Nope. Has he done something to eradicate the gasoline situation in NJ and NY? Nope. So, let's see, what IS Obama doing. Yep, he's once again in Las Vegas having a grand time, he's warm, got plenty of food and water, a dry place to sleep a home to live in and all the comforts of that home to look forward to. After the grand speech about cutting "red tape", Obama the Invisible once again left town and left the people to cope for themselves. 400 FEMA generators sitting in some warehouse as I type while homes and businesses go without power. Can't find a store with power to sell food, can't find a gas station with gas to sell within the range of the fumes the car is driving on and can't get warm or cook food. But, hey, not to worry, Obama is doing just fine. To him that's the important thing.

    Why should he? MSM is already in the bag for Obama. There's no upside to having the press put negative on anything.g and everything you say. This country will vote and they will get the president they deserve, one way or the other.

    @Decent-Dissent More good news. Romney estimated 30K at his rally in Ohio tonight. Secret Service said 15K, local police say 18K. Condoleezza Rice was scheduled but did not show. Steady stream of people leaving Romney rally in the middle of his speech. Source AP's Steve Peoples: https://twitter.com/sppeoples

    You consider late night talk shows and MTV hard hitting press and journalism? Romney has been busy answering to the American people at rallies. WHy he don't talk to the press must have sinister motives. How often does Obama have actual hard hitting interviews? You know interviews from those who are obviously not biased towards him.

    Watching the news fawning all over Biden's appearance on Letterman I began to wonder how these two, Obama and Biden have so much time to blather away with their left wing buddies while so many people are suffering economic calamity.
  • #115

    @DominicSarno: The reason that many people are still suffering "economic calamity" has its roots in the capitalistic policies that put us in this mess. Despite the republicans trying to block any and all of Obama's actions, he has actually created more jobs than there are takers - a quick search on Monster identified 725 jobs within just 50 miles of my home. That equates to hundreds of thousands of unfilled positions nationwide. Problem is, these aren't the types of jobs that most people are looking for - those jobs are overseas because using cheap, unskilled labor in developing countries allows companies to maximize their profits and keep their investors happy. When Romney tells everyone he knows how to create jobs and will create jobs, he is lying through his teeth. The majority of folks out of work are unskilled workers and jobs suitable for them are NEVER coming back to the US - hear me? NEVER! Any company would be absolutely crazy to bring those jobs back home when labor is so much cheaper overseas. Besides their investors wouldn't allow it: lower profits = lower dividends. Romney knows this more than anyone - he's an investor himself and also happened to specialize in making companies leaner and meaner. Despite this, he continues his orations, promising jobs he knows won't materialize, giving FALSE hope to those who only have hope to live on.

    Because he can't afford to stick his foot in his mouth anymore or get caught contradicting himself! He flipflops more than a tweeker making pancakes!

    So what? He obviously has more important things to do than talk to the liberal, Obammy praising media that will just try and use his statements against him. They are just trying to bait him with "GOTCHA" moments to try and influence the election! KEEP UP THE GOOD FIGHT MITT!!!!!!

    Duh, Romney is handling the business at hand, win the Presidency. So what's the big deal? Obama has yet to answer any questions (truthfully) in 4 years, he talks a lot, but never really says anything, and I wouldn't brag about Obama's many late night TV appearances. Who is his target audience? Not many grown up older Americans are up watchin Letterman, ok maybe some are, but it's obvious with interviews like MTV that 18-25 year olds was the target.
    Things that make you say, hmmm.

    To start with, O'Donnell is a biased liberal idiot. Listening to him regarding Romney is just like asking Hitler how much he likes Jews. Romney doesn't need to talk to a biased media when he is able to do such a good job of talking directly to the American people.

    The press is 98% in Obama's pocket...when they ask Obama some hard questions and actually get an honest answer, then maybe Romey would get a fair shake from them. But I wouldn't count on it. When they ask Romney questions, it's in an accusatory manner. When they ask Obama questions, it's like "so, how's your golf game today?"
