Obama Avoiding Lieberman Questions

Obama is avoiding the issue of whether Sen. Joe Lieberman should remain chairman of an important committee.

Lieberman's affiliation with Democrats is in question after the Connecticut independent's high-profile support of Republican John McCain for president.

Lieberman has met with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada, but there has been no word on whether Reid intends to try to remove Lieberman as chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Obama's incoming chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, says that what happens on Capitol Hill is the business of the House and Senate. Emanuel says the Obama administration's focus is on the economy and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Emanuel spoke on ABC's "This Week."

    Haven't you noticed that he avoids all the questions? Why should these questions be any different? Take notice the next time he has a press conference. He will talk about everything but the issue he was asked about.

    Can't you people see Obama does not like to answer questions. He will never give a Fox News Reporter time to ask a question. Watch out News Companies whats next. The Govt. will be taking over your company. If you ask a question Obama does not like?

    Since WITN didnt see fit to put a comment section on the story about Obama being the hottest topic for publishers, I'll put it here.I think it is very good. Please print as much literature/ propaganda about Obama that you can.Then when the country turns Socialist, and we cant afford toilet tissue anymore, we will have a alternative. We wont have to use up our Sears, Roebuck and Co. catalogs.We can save them to read and use the Obama stuff instead. The Sears catalogs are better reading than reading about Obama anyway.
