|'Don’t Ask,' Obama Tells MSNBC|

President Barack Obama has become so terrified of answering routine political questions from the White House press corps that he even stopped talking to the Obama News Network, MSNBC.
Politico reports that, “President Barack Obama has been taking a lot of questions in the two months since his last press conference or national news interview. He’s just been doing them with ESPN, Entertainment Tonight, People magazine and FM radio stations around the country, mostly to talk local sports and regular cuisine.”
While likely GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, gets hammered daily for trying to communicate with the media, Obama gets to enjoy talking to radio DJ, Kiki Garcia, where he can discuss his selection of gym workout music. In case you’re wondering, Obama likes Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown and Kanye West.
According to Politico, “this is isn’t a mistake. Even at the height of a campaign in which they’ve been firing hard at Mitt Romney and trying to keep hold of the news cycle, Obama’s reelection staffers are pretty sure most voters aren’t tuning in.”
Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, “people get their news in many different ways. Sometimes it’s turning on ‘Entertainment Tonight’ and seeing what the latest news is out there.”
