"Biden Angered By Tough Questions"
already posted? b, 21b, 21this clip is interesting on its own merits; it's one of the best examples I've seen of a major Democratic candidate having tough yet reasonable answers to highly politicized badgering from right-wing media. b, 21b, 21but what interests me even more is the way its being circulated on youtube as some sort of victory for the right. the title and text attached to this clip ( "Biden Angered by Tough Questions," a href="" target="_blank"1 )b, 21suggests that Biden somehow failed here. Is the hope that people will simply see the headline, and not watch? Is it for the benefit of people too stupid to digest the content themselves, who will be reassured by the title that although they don't understand the exchange between the reporter and Biden, "their team won"? Or are there really people out there who will view this and feel that Biden "cracked" under the pressure from "tough questions"?b, 21b, 21It reminds me of the (sigh) Joe The Plumber incident. Most anyone who watched the clip of Obama's interaction with JTP saw measured, reasonable, content-driven answers to JTP's questions... and yet the right attempts to claim a victory. b, 21b, 21object width="425" height="344"1param name="movie" value=""1/param1param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"1/param1embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"1/embed1/object1
