Obama interrupted by heckling reporter
politico ^ | 6/15/12 | BYRON TAU and DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 06/15/2012 11:41:27 AM PDT by ColdOne

"Why’d you favor foreigners over Americans?” Munro asked.

“Excuse me, sir, but it’s not time for questions," Obama responded.

“Are you going to take questions?” Munro asked.

“Not while I’m speaking.” Obama said.

Obama eventually addressed Munro's question.

"This is the right thing to do for the American people," Obama said.

"As a general matter, reporters are there to ask [questions]," Daily Caller editor-in-chief Tucker Carlson told the New York Times' Brian Stelter. Carlson did not immediately respond to a question from POLITICO.

"Why’d you favor foreigners over Americans?” Munro asked.

If ObaMao were honest, he would've replied "Because I am one."

Hannity once said something along the lines of “when dems know they are going to lose, they start going a bit nuts” and doing crazy things.

Riddick once said...skittish Tombes...real skittish...

He should have replied “I am doing this for the Mexican People and their votes” Be Honest You no good SOB.

I have lost all hope. God Save us from these people that have taken over our country. Wipe the slate clean, get rid of them all. Start over and go from there. But VET them first.No more socialists, communists, etc. And throw the GD CZARS under the bus. When he first mentioned CZARS my antennae went up and since then its been zinging like crazy. The only thing I can read is Ulsterman, who gives me hope.

ZERO INTERUPTED BY REPORTER ASKING A QUESTION. - - NOT HECKLED
That's a real NO-NO to ZERO asking an unauthorized question during a teleprompter speech. . . . . . .
It throws him off message. The teleprompter doesn't stop and he would be lost (Like always)

"This is the right thing to do for the American people," Obama said."

Wrong!

Illegal immigrants are already exploiting US taxpayers to the tune of $113 BILLION per year. With this slimey manuever, Obama provides the conduit for illegals to further exploit legal US citizens by "legally" competing for the diminishing (courtesy of Obamanomics) number of employment opportunities.

The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year -- an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America -- according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

Bet that reporter loses his credentials, in fact, he will be lucky not to be prosecuted for interrupting a function at which his excellency was present.

Please God, that this POS from the planet.

Bingo! Obamugabe should have put the teleprompter on pause to answer the guy’s question. Nobody cares about his speeches anymore.

By my calculation, it took 8 minutes and 37 seconds for the learned scholars in dummyland to determine this reporter was a racist.

You know...because nobody ever interrupted a Bush speech :)

Just like with Joe Wilson, the truth must be loudly, sometimes rudely, interjected between MSM-approved sound bites. Otherwise it will never be heard.

Certainly the MSM will do their best to hide it.

But people heard what this reporter said, so they know others are thinking what they are thinking.

Obama has created this situation with his pressers that don’t include questions.

Even Clinton had the sense to let the press ask questions and he was bright enough to give them answers that left them baffled.

The comments under the video from Politico are head shaking. You’d think the reporter committed blasphamy against God almighty.

This is how Bush handled being heckled during a speech:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPtB_P4XuAc

He said “We welcome free speech”.

He’s following Bush’s lead, who also wanted to shove amnesty down the throats of American tax payers, regardless if millions of Americans are unemployed, under employed, hours cuts etc, all while the biggov bosses demand Americans use less fuel, water, electricity, energy.

What Americans want or demand, is meaningless as far as the government ruling class is concerned.

Divide the united by flooding the country with tens of millions of illegals, foreigners, Muslims, etc. Open borders, global, one world order....

In fact it was Bush, who allowed in more Muslims after 911, than the previous two decades. See the UK.

Divide the united...Total control.

Obama just gave amnesty to illegals .And it did it by mandate. That is bypassing the laws and is an impeachable offense. Congress must impeach it. Please contact your Congress person.. Obama just basically passed the Dream Act without Congress. Can someone tell me how that is not a reason to impeach this creature?

This is just one of the many ways this Obama communist is violating the constitution and destroying America. It has piled on 5 trillion in debt on us, gave Amnesty to illegals, has given away our sovereignty to China and the UN, sent our jobs to China, exploded government size and weflare, It's EPA is destroying what's left of U.S. industry. I have a million other crimes this Marxist has committed against the U.S.A and the people. Where are you Romney haters huh? Romney is against Amnesty and Tom Tancredo enorsed Romney . Tell me how Romney is worse.

Oh yes they do. At least Chris Wallace does. Just as I was turning on the TV, Chris W. was saying that the reporter should be banned from the White House forever.

Mikey Wallace’s little lib boy showing his true colors. God forbid the mini-messiah should be interrupted in case he loses his place reading the Prompter. Let’s elevate decorum over truth why don’t we?
