It starts with Obama's Marxist philosophies that he wishes to push on America being exposed publicly by none other than "Joe the Plumber". The Obama campaign's response...smear tactics!!!
Next up...Peter Jenning's former Assistant Barbara West of WFTV Channel 9 in Orlando. West calls out Obama by quoting Karl Marx and then quoting Obama. West goes on to ask Joe Biden about the remarkable similiarities and Biden is stunned. How can spreading the wealth be a marxist philosophy?! Note the sarcasm!!! ;-) So what does Obama's campaign do...they turn to more marxist principles by attempting to control the media by cutting off the tv station from further interviews. Next up...smear tactics!!! Is this a nice taste of what's to come? Count on it!!! Remember America...YOU ALLOWED YOUR RIGHTS TO BE TAKEN AND YOU BROUGHT ON THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR COUNTRY BY IGNORING THE ENEMY WITHIN!
Obama campaign cuts off WFTV after interview with Joe Biden
WFTV-Channel 9's Barbara West conducted a satellite interview with Sen. Joe Biden on Thursday.
West wondered about Sen. Barack Obama's comment, to Joe the Plumber, about spreading the wealth. She quoted Karl Marx and asked how Obama isn't being a Marxist with the "spreading the wealth" comment.
"Are you joking?" said Biden, who is Obama's running mate. "No," West said.
West later asked Biden about his comments that Obama could be tested early on as president. She wondered if the Delaware senator was saying America's days as the world's leading power were over.
"I don't know who's writing your questions," Biden shot back.
Biden so disliked West's line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate's wife.
"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign.
McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was "a result of her husband's experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West."

WFTV news director Bob Jordan said, "When you get a shot to ask these candidates, you want to make the most of it. They usually give you five minutes."
Jordan said political campaigns in general pick and choose the stations they like. And stations often pose softball questions during the satellite interviews.
"Mr. Biden didn't like the questions," Jordan said. "We choose not to ask softball questions."
Jordan added, "I'm crying foul on this one."
