No yelling at Obama today
Politico ^ | July 13, 2011 | GLENN THRUSH & MATT NEGRIN

Posted on 07/13/2011 12:28:47 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

A long-running tiff between the White House press corps and the West Wing over presidential access flared anew today when press secretary Jay Carney faced off with reporters over the right to shout questions at the president during debt talks.

Obama chafes at the time-honored practice of answering questions shouted at him during pooled, non-press conference events — and his staff has often opted for “stills sprays,” excluding print reporters or TV cameras who might capture Obama in the less than flattering non-act of snubbing a query.

When asked today why TV crews and print reporters were barred from the pool covering the White House meeting with congressional leaders on the deficit, Carney responded by pointing out that the administration has held two press conferences in the past two weeks and allowed TV cameras into the spray earlier this week.

"People shouted questions at him," Carney added.

The White House Correspondents’ Association has protested exclusion of print and TV from pools — and several reporters in the briefing room took Carney’s comment as an annoyed expression of presidential displeasure with shouted questions.

This is a continuation of the full-time campaign-mode set by this administration, protecting the weak POTUS from embarassment.

This is one reason I'm looking forward to the 2012 election season--Mr. Precious is going to get a lot of things shouted at him because he will have to appear before the less than adoring if he expects to beat an opponent.

His petulance and thin-skinnedness will really be out there to enjoy.

I’d never yell at the Obamaloon.

I can communicate my thoughts adequately to him with the use of one finger.

I was never concerned with the color of Obama's skin. But I find it absolutely appaling how thin skinned he is. What an immature, sneering, snit-throwing bully we have in the White House. Will someone please send him a box of Depends! This Obama kid needs them because gets all wee-weed up when reporters ask him difficult questions.

"People shouted questions at him," Carney added.

Hmmm, one wonders if Mister Obama really has the highly powered "CPU" for which people on the left continually give him credit.

Are answers to questions things that Mister Obama needs to have a committee review before responding?

Could Mister Obama actually be the...

...Milli Vanilli of presidents?

Reminds me of that scene in Braveheart. It would be nice if several hundred people preformed for Obozo. Do you think the Secret Service would wonder about everyone showing up in kilts?

Any idea what federal law that would violate?

Um, he has to shake the hands of the unwashed to get votes. There’ll be a lot of people among those unwashed who’ll ask him questions. Maybe with some volume.

0 is close to cracking up. The MSM needs to demand answers at the tops of their lungs. Shouting is polite and the only way to get the attention of Emperor. Keep it up boys and girls.

If he is not answering questions, why is he appearing at all? So we can see what color tie he has on? (Let me guess... Light blue or grey).

The press can make do with file photos. There is no value to having a new picture of the President every day, unless he is going to get into tattoos or body modification...
