  1. Saw this live, rather enjoyable to see the guy dodge questions in the most unsmooth of ways

  2. Wow, I had seen Tucker Bounds quoted a lot, but never knew what he looked like. All I can say is that I think he may have been up past his bedtime.

  3. 80% of the way there, Campbell. If she could only explain the reasons why Obama actually has more foreign policy experience, that would help. But I’ll take a GOP-beatdown when I get it!

  4. Thanks for posting. I was actually watching this live today, but when he came on I changed the channel because I didn’t want to hear all of his spin. I wish I would have stuck it out. Way to go Campbell. Now we’re getting somewhere. Thanks for posting.

  5. Her “baby” comment was unprofessional and disrespectful. I’m sure if someone called her “baby” in an interview, she would have gotten very upset. She’s horrible.

  7. Oh Jake – if the only think you can object to is her calling him “baby”, you missed the point.

  8. Seriously….wow….How does this person have a job at CNN?
    That was horrible journalism for a news outlet.
    Country 1st people don’t listen to this garbage.
    Lets stay on the issues and if you must see answers to ridiculous questions look them up yourself. Bad, bad, bad!

  9. Comments such as those from dale are a reminder that there are people out there who have no regard for truth or fact — who only like the “spin” their party offers. As a former television journalist and major market tv news director, I found Campbell’s interview refreshing because she, for the first time in recent memory, didn’t let the interviewee “spin” a non-answer. Too often reporters just let the guest give whatever answer he or she wants — and I think often they are not listening to the answer or reconciling it to the question. They need to say, as Campbell did, “you didn’t answer my question.” I salute Campbell and hope other reporters will take notice and follow suit.

  10. Obama has NO, let me repeat NO, foreign policy because he has no foreign experience. He made one QUICK trip over seas AFTER he received the DNC nomination. This does not equate to foreign policy experience. True facts about Obama —


    You are the first candidate the U.S. has had in a long time that has continued to spread false information from the first time you hit the campaign trail.

    I find your technique one of the most offensive I have ever experienced. I find your ethics are on the border of being unethical and your manipulation of the facts most disgusting.

    It is common knowledge that the media will always press United States citizens to vote for the candidate who offers them the biggest kick-backs, pay-backs, and over-all “favors”. That is you, Obama.

    Then look at your over all personas: Your stance, the way you hold your head, your gestures, the clothes you wear, the pronouns and adjectives you use. Everything about you is the personification of an individual, who does NOT, let me repeat DOES NOT, have the United States citizens interests’ at heart. You are an elitist and the persona I just described is living proof — your entire appearance is proof — FACT — of what I say.

    Okay – now let’s talk about education. You have a law degree but did not practice law. Why? Readers – look this one up and you will see why. And, the result is not a positive one.

    Then there is the community organizer work you undertook in the state of Illinois. That, too, has been overstated and turned into something “positive” that it in fact was NOT. Dear readers – check this one out yourself as there are many Illinois citizens who will tell you the “truth.”

    My education – NOBAMA – is equal to or greater than your education. I do have the same ability as you to influence U.S. Citizens: And I certainly am taking the opportunity to exploit you for what you truly are.

    You see I am an educator, who works for a famous “Research One” institution, who has the ability to write Journal Articles that all college students will use for research. The true facts about you will come out and in a place that will most definitely do the most good – to influence voters “young voters” on how to spot an individual who does not represent the United States in the capacity as he states he will. Make no mistake, Obama, people will definitely know the subject of the Journal Articles is referencing you and your 2008 Presidential campaign.

    See you in “honest” fact-finding print.
