Barack Obama Feared The Stupid Green Questions

Newsweek has release some interesting insight into the behind the scenes action of the both the McCain and Obama campaigns. The stipulation of these reports is that they would not be made public until after the election — in order to get some frank and honest moments from the candidates. Of more interest to us was Barack Obama’s fear of having to answer stupid questions during the debates. In this one example, particularly stupid green questions.

The debates unnerved both candidates. When he was preparing for the Democratic primary debates, Obama was recorded saying, “I don’t consider this to be a good format for me, which makes me more cautious. I often find myself trapped by the questions and thinking to myself, ‘You know, this is a stupid question, but let me … answer it.’ So when Brian Williams is asking me about what’s a personal thing that you’ve done [that’s green], and I say, you know, ‘Well, I planted a bunch of trees.’ And he says, ‘I’m talking about personal.’ What I’m thinking in my head is, ‘Well, the truth is, Brian, we can’t solve global warming because I f—ing changed light bulbs in my house. It’s because of something collective’.”

Love it.
