'No Holds Barred' Obama Questions?

The professional wrestling comparison is apt. In that entertaining "sport" there exists a concept known as "kayfabe." Kayfabe is the storyline presented as "true" to the public -- "Wrestler A hates Wrestler B's guts" -- although it was created to deceive the public. (Wrestlers A & B may actually be best friends.) It's safe to say that any "no holds barred" presentations of the relationship between the media and Democrats (especially Obama) presented to the public are kayfabe, fake storylines constructed to fool the public.

Very interesting, and why I read TH comments. Thanks so much.
I will start to use the term, with the hope that it will get a mention to a wider audience by way of some commentator on Fox or in TH magazine. I think some read this stuff.
Kayfabe!
ABC News really knows how to cause a coffee spit-take. All you have to do is introduce George Stephanopoulos talking to President Obama and put these hyperbolic words on screen: "No Holds Barred."

Someone should tell the geniuses at ABC that's a term suited for competitive wrestling. It doesn't describe Democrat chitchat that demonstrates about as much as dramatic confrontation as other morning TV fare, such as "Bubble Guppies" and "Miss Spider's Sunny Patch Friends."

To be fair, the questions were about policy, including budget matters and North Korea. But they weren't challenging. Ask any conservative Republican about "no holds barred"...
