Being a local radio station, the Morning Mayhem crew had to have been STOKED to get to interview President Obama. Too bad it was a waste of time. Well, that’s my opinion, anyway. I’m not hating on the fact they got to interview him, I mean, I wouldn’t even know what I would want to ask…..but I know it would have to do something with our economy, jobs, education…the things that are impacting my life.
What did Morning Mayhem ask him……….Some hard hitting questions about food, super powers and music. Uuumm…there is nothing said during that interview that makes me want to vote for him. I mean, the interview did show he is a real person…..but we already know that. You can tell that.
I can appreciate the fact that he hasn’t had a chance to try New Mexican food…..and I found it funny when he said he ate mole while he was here…..since that’s a Mexican food and not NEW Mexican…..there is a difference! Honestly, I have never eaten mole and I’ve lived in New Mexico most of my life. Subtract cool points for that one.
They ask him what super power he would want……sigh…..not impressed. To speak any language. Really? You could be invisible, fly, whatever else and you want to speak languages? Rosetta Stone can do that for you. Subtract points there as well.
It was interesting hearing about his music preferences…..I guess. I mean, it doesn’t impact my choice to vote/not vote for him, but it is always interesting to hear what type of music people enjoy. I like his style…some old school mixed with current. I could jam out to the same stuff…..although he’s never heard “Call Me Maybe”……uuummmm…wow. Earned some points back there.
Basically, that was the interview in a nutshell. I mean, in the process of the 7 minute interview he did get a chile war going with Colorado. NO ONE has better chile than New Mexico….those are fighting words!
Now, I know they aren’t CNN or any other real NEWS station..they are a music station and want to relate to the rest of us. The moms and dads working hard to support our families, the normal every day people that like to listen to some “Call Me Maybe” while they are driving into work…..but you didn’t ask one real question. Could you have spent a moment and asked what he is going to do to help everyone that seems to be having harder times this year than they ever have. I know more people struggling to make ends meet than any other time in their lives. Everything is getting more expensive…shoot there are days I need to run out and I can’t afford to because the gas to just too darn expensive. The price of food is going up, how are we going to afford spending an extra 40% on groceries in the coming months?!? It didn’t have to be in depth and get into the really hot topics..but could you have spent the time to touch on anything that mattered?!
For that moment in time you were the voice of New Mexico…..and you asked about what food to eat if you visited Chicago. *sigh* You asked about super powers. *sigh* I’m not saying those questions shouldn’t have been asked….I mean, mix them in….BUT, ask something of relevance. Ask something that matters. Ask a question a grown up would ask instead of things my kids would have come up with. I asked my 11 year old what he would ask the President of the United States of America if he had the chance….his answer? ”What’s his favorite food?” Okay, so he’s right in line with these three…..congrats, you asked the question of a 6th grader. I then asked my 6 year old the same thing..he answers, “uuummmm, Did you ever play any video games?” Okay so that wasn’t covered in this interview..maybe my kids can help if you ever got the chance to do this interview again. I’m sure they could come up with some more questions for you.
If you had the chance to interview President Obama, what would you have asked him?
