Bob Schieffer needs to retire.

One of his questions... Does Obama REALLY think that he has a MANDATE?? His personal views come out with everything he says.

2. Isn't that a legitimate question?

I'd like to know the answer myself, it would reveal something about how willing he is to fight for positions.

I watch Up with Chris Hayes and the MHP show, so my next question is, of whom did he ask the question? If it was a Democrat, it was an ideal opening to show strength. If a Republican, then I would have to agree with you.

4. It was the tone and..

He further said...The red states were very red, the blue states very blue. Schieffer's tone was one of scoffing at the notion of a mandate.

The correct way to ask that question would be...What additional momentum comes out of the election for Obama...was there a mandate, and if so, to do what?

5. I see...

You want your questions framed in a manner you think is more advantageous to the president. The 'additional momentum' is a nice touch.

If you don't like him, why do you watch him? He won't go away as long as he is getting the ratings.

6. How is my question advantageous to Obama?

Not that I feel a big need to explain anything to you but I wanted to watch Geithner, saw him on Fox, then switched to CBS. Why do you feel a need to ask why I choose to watch something?

8. The assumption

of additional momentum.

You could have any number of reasons why you still watch his program after stating that you think Schieffer should retire. As I don't watch his show, I was wondering if I should tune in. Sorry you object to being questioned.... I'll be sure not to bother again.

10. The non-objective, real journalism question

would be: "Did any additional momemtum..." The "What" word was the push.

To the OP-Yes Scheiffer needs to retire.

11. Agree. I nominate you to replace Shieffer!

Coming off watching Geithner on Fox, Shieffer's questions were not much different in fox-speak. On Fox, Wallace a couple of times said...I just talked to Boehner and... Nice that they got questions from Boehner. I thought Geithner did well both times...assertive, knowledgeable, calm. He made the case well.
