That is exactly the point. Obama NEVER gets asked tough questions. He RARELY even has press conferences.
Even Chris Matthews opened up a segment by accusing Barack Obama of behaving "like the campaign never ended" asking:
"What`s the president up to? Is he doing what he does well? Is he simply sticking to his strengths? Or is he trying to bypass what he sees as a problem area, meaning the national press corps?"
Matthews even suggested that the folks at Thursday's Internet town hall were "self-selected" much like a "Potemkin village".
This is what people who aren't hiding in the shadows can see with perfect clarity.
Even Matthews was willing to step into the light for a minute. It probably blinded him though. Don't think he likes the light too much.
Its too late, he already won re-election. Its not likely he'll hold any other elected position in this country again. What's the point to all of this? You're never going to be able to prove you were right because we'll never see what Romney would have done as President. So, are you just going to spend the next four years being wrong about being right?

Thank God for American Crossroads and the Conservative Victory Project
American Crossroads is creating a new Super PAC to crush conservatives, destroy the tea party, and put a bunch of squishes in Republican leadership positions. Thank God they are behind this. In 2012, they spent hundreds of millions of rich donors’ money and had jack to show for it.
It is interesting though. The people who brought us No Child Left Behind, Medicare Part D, TARP, the GM bailout, Harriet Miers, etc., etc., etc. are really hacked off that people have been rejecting them. In 2012, about the only successful Republican candidates were the ones who directly rejected the legacy of these people.
So now they will up their game. They don’t like being shut out. They blame the tea party and conservatives for their failure to win primaries. They’ll now try to match conservatives and, in the process, call themselves conservatives.
I dare say any candidate who gets this group’s support should be targeted for destruction by the conservative movement. They’ve made it really easy now to figure out who the terrible candidates will be in 2014.
....The Conservative Victory Project, which is backed by Karl Rove and his allies who built American Crossroads into the largest Republican super PAC of the 2012 election cycle, will start by intensely vetting prospective contenders for Congressional races to try to weed out candidates who are seen as too flawed to win general elections.....
The problem will not be the weeding out. Certainly some candidates should be weeded out. Todd Akin should never have gotten the nomination, but tea party groups in Missouri were too divided to rally against him. Weeding out candidates will not be the problem. The problem will come when conservatives do rally and Karl Rove disagrees. In calling his group the “Conservative Victory Project” he intends to lend a veneer of conservative credibility to candidates who may not be in the same way the Bush Presidency tried to create “big government conservatism.”
Count me out.

“big government conservatism.”
and now they start to admit that Bush actually did screw it up? but, but, Democrats, 2007, blah, blah, BLAH!
whatever you nutjobs have been told is the truth....they will not be teaching FOXbot to your children. get a grip on reality.
Dufus, you still haven't answered these questions:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

In other words, where was Obama when the White House issued the orders to hang the Americans in Benghazi out to dry while they watched Al Qaeda kill them on real-time video?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

A simple location will suffice for the first question.
A simple source of money will suffice for the second question.

I already posted this not 30 minutes ago...the video and the transcript and even excerpts where Obama mentions the video 3 separate times.

How did that work out?
I suspect about as well as its worked out for the Republicans shuffling the also-rans to the top of the ticket. In 2016 should we expect a Clinton/Gingrich matchup? That's just got too much historical irony to be plausible.

Hey genius libtard,
Did you tell us how the government of Afghanastan supporting the terrorists responsible for the deaths of 3,000 people on 911 wasn't related to national security?
thats a lie......the country most responsible for those 9-11 terrorists is non other that BUSHES kissing OIL partners from SAUDIA ARABIA. the only thing that poor azz country afganistan is responsibe for is continuously moving the opium trade to its destination. the american drug lords and republican SUPER PACS in the gov't needed to get their hands on that money so they could affect the elections here in america.
they did rather well.....bush got elected a 2nd term.

For those of you who missed reading Carol"s college era drama the first twenty times she posted it, she was married to husband #1 at that time and came to believe that all her uber liberal professors and instructors picked on her because of her religious views.
* U of I Urbana has one of the best intel science PhD programs in the nation__definitely top ten perhaps top two but that area of study was not yet created when Carol was there. Hah, those were the days of key punch cards.

continuing the GOP slap fest...

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) on Monday swiftly denounced Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for a joke about Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that the former Republican presidential nominee made on Twitter.

After McCain faced accusations of racism for a tweet in which he alluded to Ahmadinejad as a monkey, the senior Arizona senator told his critics to "lighten up." Amash reacted with surprise to the original tweet before telling McCain to "wisen up" and stop making "racist jokes."
