Obama Campaign Cuts Off Interviews With Florida TV Station
Biden gets asked tough questions by Orlando reporter
[Portent of things to come: If a TV station or a communications network dares question the Obama administration unfavorably, that station, network, communication medium will no longer have access to the administration]
Obama Campaign to WFTV Televison station Orlando, Florida:
"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely . . . " wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign . . . .

Barack Obama's campaign killed all interviews with a Florida TV station after Sen. Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, faced tough and critical questions from a reporter at the Orlando station, the Orlando Sentinel reported .
During a satellite video Thursday, WFTV's Barbara West quoted Karl Marx and asked Biden how Obama's comment to "Joe the Plumber," about spreading the wealth wasn't being Marxist.
"Are you joking?," Biden asked.
West replied, "No."

Later in the interview West questioned Biden about his comments that if Obama wins the election next month, he would be tested early on as president and wanted to know if Biden was implying America was no longer the world's leading power.
"I don't know who's writing your questions," Biden asked her.
The Obama camp then killed a WFTV interview with Biden's wife Jill, according to an Orlando Sentinel blog.
WHAT IS MARXISM?
Theoretically, Marxism is a distribution of wealth "from each according to their ability, to each according to their need."
German economist & Communist political philosopher (1818 - 1883)
BUT Obama would change that to "to each according to their needs, from each according to their abilities"
which means that the needs of his "constituency" (his beloved "communities") would come first. What these "communities" would have to contribute, their "abilities," is left in limbo.
and, if you think that Obama Socialism/Marxism is not the same old Communism that was tried and failed in Russia, then take a look at this:
Behold ACORN’s ‘Communist Manifesto’
As a public service here is a copy of ACORN’s so-called People’s Platform, via the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.
As is noted, this version was updated in 1990, which is just two before Mr. Obama began to work for them via Project Vote and as a trainer for the "power" seminars.
ACORN People’s Platform
The People’s Platform was conceived at ACORN’s 1978 Memphis Convention and ratified at the 1979 St. Louis Convention. In 1990, in celebration of ACORN’s twentieth anniversary, ACORN members around the country met in order to revise and update the platform. The resulting document was approved by the Executive Committee of the Association board and ratified by acclamation at the 1990 Chicago Convention.
and here again pops up WHO but the nimble-tongued, fast-soft-shoe-dancing Barack Obama, he who "never had anything to do with ACORN" according to himself:
