The chance for me to ask President Biden questions about the issues of the day is not likely to happen, so I decided to approach Peter Doocy and see if he would ask the President my questions. I have been watching Peter since 2009 when he joined Fox News. He is the current generation’s Sam Donaldson in that both reporters challenged their Presidents more aggressively than most of the Washington Press corp. I like the fact that Peter is doing the job that the founding fathers wanted the press to do to secure the activities of the three branches of the government.
Over the last five years, the mainstream media has not done its job in calling out the President and Congress to account for their actions or inactions. If Peter should get a copy of this commentary, I hope he will find an opportunity to stand in for me and ask the tough question that follow.
Question: Mr. President, you have already sent over 12,000 American troops to the Baltics and Eastern Europe but you have said they will not be deployed to Ukraine. What is their purpose in being deployed?
Question: Mr. President, you seem to be concerned about protecting the Ukraine border from the 150,000 Russian troops. What does it cost to deploy 12,000 soldiers per month?
Question: If the 12,000 soldiers are not going into combat against the Russians, what are they going to do? In other words, what is their mission?
Question: Could you change the mission of our troops to engage with the Russians. To do this, would you have to send in more American troops? If so, how many more would you send?
Question: Mr. President, last year the border patrol reported that millions illegally crossed our southern border, of which, in excess of 5,000 were Russians. If our 12,000 soldiers are not going to engage with the Russian troops in Ukraine, shouldn't we bring them home and put them on our southern border?
I could have written many more questions but reporters have very little time to ask the President questions. If Peter can't ask the President the questions that have gone unanswered, he can ask Jen Psaki, the President's Press Secretary, at one of her press briefings, The most important thing is to continue pressing the issue.
Let me raise one last question. Perhaps even Peter may not want to ask this question. I can assure you that millions of Americans think about this question and believe they know the answer. Question: Mr. President, many Americans have grave concerns that your obsession with the Ukraine and Russia is simply a shiny object distraction so the American people will be distracted away from Inflation, immigration at the southern border, escalation of crime, the price of energy, CRT and the pandemic to name a few. Why should America support what you want to do in Ukraine?
Only time will tell if Peter or another reporter will ask these questions. We deserve answers and people like Peter Doocy are looking out for our country.
