But the questions were softballs. Almost every statement Romney made was challenged. The questioning on Romney was very, very good. Why not the same treatment for Obama? The focus of the in-fighting with Congress was based on "why haven't you struck a deal on cutting taxes for the rich?" Why was there no questioning of why he hasn't passed a budget, even with a democratic congress? Why no mention of Bob Woodward's book? I thought the economic questions were complete softballs. Rather than really dig into Obama, he basically framed the questions as "Romney said you believe this..." And why not really poke into the details of the bailout? Or challenge any point Obama made?
I actually don't think it was so much softball questions as much as it was a really unskilled interview. The questions were canned.
