lobbing softball questions at the President in Press conferences and going into the WH on several non press days.
A massive REAL actual scandal!

Obama's softball Questions in Montana
Obama's "town hall" meeting in Montana was filled with lengthy cheers and
softball questions, despite the administration's vows that questions would
not be pre-determined and that tickets would be handed out on a first-come
"We haven't pre-selected anybody," Obama said when starting the Q&A session
after a lengthy address that highlighted his views on health care
Yet, five of the seven questions taken included compliments for the
President. "Welcome, and thank you, and I believe in reform as well," said
one participant when addressing the President. "Thank you - I'm someone who
had a job as the result of your stimulus program," said another. Towards the
end of the session, Obama actually had to solicit a question that voiced
more dissent - ostensibly so the event could appear more legitimate.
The man he selected put together a question that was virtually made in
"I'm someone who makes a living selling private insurance," said the
questioner, and then he asked Obama why he has changed his rhetoric from
"health care reform" to "health insurance reform." Obama said there had been
no malicious intent there, but simply that he thought insurance companies
needed a push.
Because Obama is "a constitutional scholar," said one Montanan, another
participant in the "town hall" wanted to read him the opening lines to the
Montana State Constitution. http://townhall.com/columnists/JillianBandes/...
