New RNC Ad Hammers Obama on White House Press Corps Snub, Answers Radio Softball Questions

One would think in a dismal economy where unemployment is at 8.3 percent and 12.8 million Americans out of work, the President of the United States would be out and about, reassuring the American people that he’s serious about fixing this economy. But he’s recently been criticized for not meeting with his Jobs Council so far in 2012 and hasn’t been accountable to the media, failing to answer questions from the White House press corps for more than two months.

So what exactly has the president been up to?  He’s been yukking it up with local pop music station radio DJs, fielding softball questions about New Mexican food and desirable superpowers. And the Republican National Committee has jumped all over the president’s egotistical misstep with a new ad titled “Serious Questions” hitting the president on his lack of accountability to the American people.

It was recently discovered that President Obama was interviewed by a New Mexican radio station, answering shallow questions from the station’s hosts about where they can find really good “soul food” in Chicago and what his favorite work out song is. The hosts even pretended to set him up with a serious question, stating, “Our big question is… red or green?” to which the president gave an evasive, political response, “Red – although every once in a while, green is solid.”

In the worst economic recovery since the great depression, the RNC and millions of other thinking Americans, are left wondering, “Why is Obama avoiding the White House Press Corps?”      And that is exactly the question that appears on screen during the introduction of the new RNC ad. The ad then plays a portion of the president’s interview with 93.3 KOBFM on August 17, 2012, assuring viewers and listeners that what they are hearing is not in fact a “parody.”

The softball questions come one after the other including some teasing of the Commander-in-Chief, suggesting that his favorite song is the current pop hit, “Call Me Maybe.” The interview ends with the female radio host stating, “I just flirted with the President of the United States of America.” The ad concludes with one simple, yet probing question on screen: “Mr. President, Where are the jobs?”

Yeah, we’d all kind of like to know the answer to that one, Mr. President.
