    Of all the questions Beck has asked the WH to answer, these are the ones they chose? Unbelievable.

    More thin-skinned replies to people who they say don't matter, is more telling and damning than anything else they could do.

    Why do they dignify the Becks, the Hannitys, the Limbaughs of the world, with replies?

    I agree..

    In a perfect world, the masses would look at these guys and laugh them off. However, when you have a significant portion of the population taking what these idiots say as gospel....unfortunately, you have to respond to their moronic rants

    You don't have to respond. But hell, let's say you DO have to: Go on their shows and do it in person! The combination of Obama boycotting FoxNews then whining about what's being said looks childish, infantile, petulant and thin-skinned.

    Somebody on Obama's team needs to say, "Hey boss, are we gonna kick their ass or what? Let's do Hannity, Beck, O'Reilly (His appearance on O'Reilly actually got him my vote BTW) and confront them directly instead of issuing mealy-mouthed talking point bullshit."

    Their only actual gripe has been, him coming on most every talk show except any of theirs.

    And they have a point.

    On one hand, Obama apparently doesn't want to give them more credibility and more ratings. On the other, he dignifies them and gives them credibility with mealy-mouthed, written responses. He should do all or neither.

    If he can kick Beck's ass, he should go on the show and do so. Beck will give him the full hour I am sure, and more if the President wants it. Same is true for O'Reilly and Hannity, I'd bet.

    And he would help himself alot more than anyone imagines.

    If you're going to take on critics at all, take them on directly and in their yard, and let the folks decide.

    The Olympics in Vancouver haven't happened yet, but his assertion is going to be pretty accurate when it's all said and done.

    Here's an article from the Vancouver Sun that lays out some of their costs on the taxpayer.

    Olympics bill tops $6 billion so far
