Ten Questions Rush Would Have Asked Obama at Thursday's Press Conference

Barack Obama finally gave a press conference on Thursday, and many on the right immediately noted some tough questions that were sorely absent.

Anticipating this eventuality, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh penned ten questions of his own that he would have asked the Commander-in-Chief if he had been invited to yesterday's festivities.

As you listen and/or read his queries, try to imagine any Obama-loving media member having the nerve to ask such things as well as the look on the President's face if they were actually posed (video follows with transcript and commentary):  

  • Question number one: Do you prefer golf or basketball when avoiding the hard work of being president? 
  • Question number two: Approximately 70% of the American people approve of Arizona's immigration law and want the border sealed. What do you, Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro, and Felipe Calderon know about these matters that we don't? 
  • Number three: You say that you won't rest until every American has a job and the Gulf oil spill is capped and the area cleaned up. Well, why are you vacationing in Chicago over the Memorial Day weekend and then returning to Washington for a Paul McCartney concert? 
  • Number four: Speaking of Memorial Day, why not commemorate the day at Arlington National Cemetery? Are you avoiding Arlington due to the fact that you embarrassed yourself there a few years ago when you said, "On this Memorial Day, as our nation honors its unbroken line of fallen heroes, and I see many of them in the audience here today, our sense of patriotism is particularly strong." Remember him saying that? He saw many of our fallen heroes in the audience, meaning he saw the walking dead. Remember he said that? 
  • Number five: When you do deliver your Memorial Day remarks, if the word "corpsman" pops up on your teleprompter, how will you pronounce the word, "corpsman" or "corpesman"? 
  • Number six, did you learn to solve big problems by putting your boot on people's necks from Frank Marshall Davis, Saul Alinsky, Bill Ayers, Jeremiah Wright, or Rahm Emanuel? 
  • Number seven: When you said to your staff, "Plug the damn hole," was it your impression that BP had not yet thought of that, and did it take you five weeks to come up with that solution? What were some of the other ideas you had, if this was your latest and greatest idea, plug the hole? 
  • Number eight: When it comes to Gulf oil spill, would you say that better late than never is your motto, or is it, why do today what can be done tomorrow? 
  • Number nine: Should the American people be saying "thank you" for the economy and for your response to the Gulf oil spill? 
  • Number ten: Does the Mexican president ever object to what you tell him to say?
Do you like those questions better than the ones the mainstream media asked the President yesterday?
