Neil Munro, White House Correspondent: I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.

Tucker Carlson, Editor-in-Chief: I dont remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan. And she shouldnt have. A reporters job is to ask questions and get answers. Our job is to find out what the federal government is up to. Politicians often dont want to tell us. A good reporter gets the story. Were proud of Neil Munro.
Neil Patel, Publisher: The President today announced a very controversial policy and does not want to answer tough questions about it. Neil Munro is a veteran Washington reporter who today tried his best to time his question to be first as the President was wrapping up his remarks. He in no way meant to heckle the President of the United States.
Idi Obama reacted to the question as though the stress is really starting to get to him. He looked and acted like an angry young black man. That’s enough to short circuit even Chrissy Matthew’s tingle.
TRULY a HERO, Neil Munro. GOOD JOB!
I guess itll be on my tombstone, Donaldson muses. He yelled at Ronald Reagan. Donaldson became famous for shouting questions at the Gipper on the White House lawn in the 80s, before cable news made confrontational reporting the standard.
Thank you, Neil Munro.
Obama’s words to Munro on first encounter:
“This is not the time for questions, sir. Not while I'm speaking”
It seems there was no time for questions after the boy president completed his statement either. He turned his back and walked away while questions were being asked.
That's the Chicago Way.
It reminds me of how affronted Bill Clinton was as the beginning of his administration when one of the media wrote something or said something even slightly critical of him, but his point was different. He was thinking, “Hey, we’re all Liberals here, you should be supporting me and giving me cover.”
In Obama’s case, it’s his malignant narcissism. He just can’t believe that anyone would be so rude and gauche to question him to his face — especially not the media. As far as he’s concerned, their only role is to worship at his feet and tell everyone how wonderful he is.
On lookers report seeing a mob of African-American youths assembling near the White House -- others report rumors of a massive flash mob gathering requested from the White House. . . .
Obama is having a meltdown! How un-presidential! Never saw a President lose his composure like that.
Do you think hes strung out on something? Or hungover from last nights elite fundraiser? Or maybe he just had a bad week? Whatever, the pressure is getting to him.
It appears to me that Obama stopped short of saying, These young people are going to make extraordinary contributions to my campaign. but caught himself and instead continued with and are already making contributions to our society.
I don't say that I've predicted it myself because so many others have predicted it. I can only say that I'll be watching... which will be enough for me.
I remember back in '93, Brit Hume asked Clinton an embarrassing question. Clinton totally went off on Brit, next thing you know, Brit was kicked off the WH press corps(e).
He is under the delusion that he is King.
"King George commands, and we obey...
The voters need to send him "Over the hills and far away!"
Wow - great minds! Got ya by four seconds ;-)
Tomorrows Headlines: Black Pampers put a bounty on Neil Munro, DOJ responds... No Comment...ever.
Ever since Reggie and Kal Penn got booted by Mooch the First Beard, O’s been crabby.
This reminds me of the Lazio/Clinton debate when he approached her and the media took to its collective fainting couch.
