Bret Baier’s FOX News Interrupt-A-Thon

Presidents aren’t hothouse flowers.  They’re not kings.  They’re public servants.  They shouldn’t be afraid of tough questions.  Which is why I don’t have a problem with Bret Baier’s in-your-face approach to interviewing Barack Obama yesterday.  We should see more of it.

But I do have a problem with the questions Baier asked.  They were nothing more than Republican talking points repeated ad nauseum.  You can’t look like a tough guy browbeating a Democratic president when it’s painfully obvious that you’re really just Mitch McConnell’s tender bitch.

(This kind of thing is bipartisan in the media.  Keith Olbermann didn’t do himself any favors by kissing up to Obama in 2008, although he’s a little better now.)
