Wolf Blizter Blog Post #4

In The Situation Room, one of the stories is about Mitt Romney, who thinks that Pres. Obama won the election because he gave gifts to African-Americans, Hispanics and young voters. In the interview with Wolf Blitzer, Governor of Louisiana Bobby Jindal states that this is the wrong way for the Republican Party to gain voters. The interview surprised me because I never heard from a reasonable Republican. He even admitted that Republicans need to stop saying dumb things like Romney’s comment “that 47 % of Americans were “victims” dependent on government and would never vote for him.” I feel that Republicans are turning against Romney not because his ideas were idiotic but because he lost the election. None of the Republicans spoke out against any of Romney’s comments or ideas before the election so you wouldn’t know which ones to believe in. In the interview Blitzer asked questions directly that are to the point. He doesn’t give his opinion. He stays unbiased during the interview where he doesn’t attack Jindal with questions. He asks questions that requires a direct answer. He clearly doesn’t report for entrainment but to inform.
