Obama Berates Reporter at Science Fair
Washington Free Beacon ^ | 5/2/7/14 | Staff

Posted on 05/27/2014 8:40:10 PM PDT by Nachum

President Obama berated Real Clear Politics reporter Alexis Simendinger after she asked him about reports of the U.S. sending trainers to help the rebels in Syria.

Moments after the president finished speaking with individual students and taking pictures with the press at the White House’s science fair exhibit, Simendinger asked him a question regarding these reports.

“I’m sorry, we’re doing a science fair- c’mon, c’mon,” Obama responded before rushing out of the room and avoiding comment on the breaking news.

He kind of loses his cool here.

Wonder if we'll get to see him drop an 'F Bomb" next...

She should have asked a probing question about the science fair?

Oh I do hope so. That would be just another step in the great shame of the once great United States.

...and in mishandling the questioner he as much as admitted why he is doing these type functions. Lets him hide behind children. Sorta like human shields.

Real Clear Politics probably got a scolding call from the WH:
“TOTUS was programmed to reply to questions about science fair projects. Period!”

He won’t know what to answer until Valerie Jarrett writes a response for him to read. She’s the sock puppet handler for the jackass sock puppet.

Now, we all know who Alexis Simendinger is, if not the same, many know about this incident. Obama’s attempt to flounce out of the room in perfect snit seems to have backfired. If I was Alexis Editor or Employer, I would ask the president for a public apology OR an exclusive 17 minute interview, that might, just might help Alexis to dry her tears (of laughter).

“Being treated like normal Presidents is clearly above his pay grade”

Is it weird that I read that as, “gay pride”?
Dyslexia or intuition?

Alexis knew that all science is settled, and thus no questions remain in science, and consequently nothing further can be learned or gained in the settled field of science.

Science to Obama is as dead as America’s NASA Program.

Hence, Alexis wisely chose to ask her question about a less settled topic, and one that Obama expertise has been finally recognized when Obama was awarded the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

Yes indeed, Alexis asked Obama a question about Foreign Policy.

My question to ALL is: “Was Obama less flexible than usual when he was about to throw another hissy fit when asked a question that he did not want to answer?”

Imagine, if you can, the hissy fit that Obama would throw if during a sworn hearing of the Benghazi House Committee, Chairman Trey Gowdy asked Obama: “Where were you, and what were you doing during the night of September 11, 2012?”
