Questions, questions

Posted By on Thu, Feb 11, 2010 at 3:50 PM

The Republican campaign apparatus succeeded in planting a question with Arkansas media to get federal candidates on record on pending health legislation. Fair enough.

Now Democrats want reporters to ask Rep. John Boozman (and other candidates, I'd add) the absolutely fair question of where they stand on the Republican proposal to slash Social Security and Medicare.

Talking Points Media explains that Boozman is one of the GOP candidates being specifically targeted. Boozman doesn't take our questions. Perhaps the reporter who so helpfully braced Robbie Wills on a health question planted by Repubs (and which produced some instant Republican campaign video) will be so gracious as to do the other side's bidding, too?
