On Thursday Obama's VP candidate Joe Biden was asked some very tough questions by Florida WFTV anchor Barbara West.
The Obama campaign is livid over this interview. They immediately cancelled a scheduled WFTV -9 interview with Jill Biden and made it clear that further interviews with members of the Obama campaign by the Florida TV station were very unlikely.
Again, the Obama exhibits his tendency toward being thin skinned when it comes to tough questions and close scrutiny of his socialist policies and radical associations. When Samuel 'Joe the Plumber' Wurzelbacher dared to ask his 'Excellency' a question regarding the socialistic nature of his tax plan, the left leaning media went out of it's way to try to discredit an average Joe. Now it seems that government resources have been misappropriated in the effort to discredit Joe according to the Columbus Dispatch.
"Public records requested by The Dispatch disclose that information on Wurzelbacher’s driver’s license or his sport-utility vehicle was pulled from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times shortly after the debate. Information on Wurzelbacher was accessed by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department. It has not been determined who checked on Wurzelbacher, or why. Direct access to driver’s license and vehicle registration information from BMV computers is restricted to legitimate law enforcement and government business."
Denying interviews is one thing, illegally invading the privacy of a private citizen for political purposes is quite another. When Obama's passport information was illegally breached people lost their jobs over it. Those individuals who looked at and released the illegally obtained information on Wurzelbacher should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
