Obama tore into Republican presidential candidates Monday night at a Democratic fundraising event in New York, saying their complaints about CNBC’s debate moderation aren’t an encouraging preview for their governing abilities.

Obama added, “Let me tell you, if you can’t handle those guys, then I don’t think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you.”

Of course, this is the same man who refused to attend a debate on FOX News in 2007.
That’s because FOX News was the only media outlet that was not buying the Hope and Change routine.

Last Thursday, the Democratic National Committee also www.FoxAttacks.com and have been viewed nearly 700,000 times combined.
