Politics is always intense and hard hitting, especially when you are running for President. There's also comedy and hypocrisy involved.
In the latest examples of comedy and hypocrisy, President Obama mocks the Republican Presidential candidates who complained the CNBC moderators were asking them tough questions last debate.
President Obama Skewers GOP Candidates Who 'Can't Handle A Bunch Of CNBC Moderators'
President Barack Obama took shots at the Republican presidential candidates who have accused him of being weak on foreign policy, telling supporters on Monday that the GOP’s criticisms are unfounded because they “can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators,” referencing their outrage over last week’s CNBC Republican debate."Let me tell you, if you can’t handle those guys, then I don’t think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried," he said at a Democratic fundraiser in New York.
And this was after CNBC decided to limit the debate to 2 hours, when the GOP candidates were complaining that 3 hours was too long in the other debates. Well, you need more time in a debate to cover so many more candidates (at least 10 for the GOP), and even though CNBC didn't host those previous 3 hour Republican debates, they met the GOP candidates' demands.
Common sense would tell you that with such limited time to cover so many candidates, CNBC would logically present more thought provoking questions. Now the Republicans are whining about this again. Are they going to whine again when dealing with leaders of countries like China, Russia, or the world? Are they going to whine again when the heat picks up with domestic issues in the U.S.? You bet they'll whine, cry, and throw tantrums.
