Fox Correspondant Has Answer For Everything On Same Sex Marriage Ban

Reported by Donna - June 5, 2006

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith one of the segments, of course, was on same sex marriage since the president chose to speak about it today.

When Smith brought up some questions for this legislation and why the president was doing this now, Bret Baier, new Chief White House Correspondent had the answers.

Bret Baier said that aides denied that the president was trying to energize his base though it did energize his base in 2004. When discussing whether this wasn't a political ploy to cater to his right wing base, Baier said that the president insisted that activist judges had forced the issue. Baier responded that pulbicly the president won't prejudge the vote but no doubt hits the base but also goes across party lines. When asked whether Iraq, border security and other issues were more important than same sex marriage, Baier replied that this was asked at the press conference and Tony Snow, White House Spokesperson, said that the president was able to handle more than one thing at once..

Comment: We all know that this is a political ploy aimed directly at the president's base, however, Fox seems to think that they've covered all the bases where this is concerned. Give kudos to Shepard Smith for asking the hard questions but not following up on Baier's 'fed from the White House' answers. I don't know, I'm still trying to figure out the president being able to handle more than one thing at a time. We report, you decide.
