Via The Capitol Report:
President Obama recorded an interview with the “Morning Mayhem” crew on KOB-FM in Albuquerque earlier this week.
And man, was it bad.
Now, I know when somebody agrees to talk to morning DJs at a pop music station, you’re not going to get heavy policy questions — and that’s probably why the President agreed to it. Politicians of every stripe hope to get through interviews with the least amount of trouble. I’m not going to rap President Obama for doing the show.
But I will take the DJs to the woodshed.
Even by the standards of softball questions, the “mayhem” crew was particularly lame.
Among the questions:
- If you had a super power, what would it be?
- What’s your favorite New Mexican food?
- What’s your favorite song to work out to?
The editors of Tiger Beat would ridicule this. C’mon. Even if you just wanted to ask questions about what makes the guy tick, this is the best you can up with?
