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.

What second term?

Obama just gave the election today to Mittens.

These “youths” will simply self-deport since they are not going to have any more of an easy time finding work.

“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.”

Mere mortals, ESPECIALLY PROLS, are not allowed to question the Queer Media Messiah.

It does not fit the Current Truth Narrative. No matter different the current truth is today, from Yesterdy’s.

COMRADE GREAT CHAIRMAN OBAMAKOV, IS NOT TO BE QUESTIONED

An example will be made of this reporter. Just Watch. The message will be sent out loud and clear that there is a penalty to be paid for embarrassing Der ObamaFuhrer.

Obama mentioned that some of the illegals were CURRENTLY serving in the military. THAT IS A LIE. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS TO SERVE IN OUR MILITARY.

ILLEGAL aliens are NOT American people

At one time that was true. But now we are ALL Americans until proven otherwise. If you don't need to show your papers to be President then why should you need papers to live in America and vote?

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

Which is why I try to refer to Citizens of the United States instead of Americans.

Obama's right. It is the right thing to do if your only concern is the American (North, Central, and South American) people who are not U. S. Citizens.

My concern is with my own people, the Citizens of the United States.

Yes, everything the Kenyan has done has been for America since he took office illegally.

He has a place in his heart for illegals because of it.

I was watching Chris Wallace and his comment about this was ‘reporters’ don’t act the way Munro acted. You allow the President to finish his speach. Anything less is disrespectful and is not ‘reporting’ but making news. Chris Wallace went on to say he thought Munro should be banned from White House press pool.

If you look at the pictures/video...Munro was standing there w/ unkempt look, no notes, no camera and hands in his pocket. He did look like he was there to cause a disruption. Other reporters looked more professional. Also, it would appear that Munro was not well known among the other press and they were trying to get information from him and Munro wouldn’t answer their questions.

My two cents is this Munro guy just wanted to drive traffic to his website. Mission accomplished.

Obama doesn’t respect the Presidency. Interrupting the liar-in-chief is not disrespecting the Presidency in my estimation, it is calling attention to the fact that we have an impostor in the WH who is in the process of destroying our Republic.

Sure glad I don’t have kids...

I have ten; six living. Would that I had a thousand.

As the situation is continuing to deteriorate under current management, we are working now to endure the coming trouble, after which we will rise from the ashes and rule the Earth. I, my wife, and the six kids I have with me work in concert with a global network building an infrastructure that will sustain and preserve a moral, ethical, righteous society throughout the globe in spite of the hour of deep crisis developing on the horizon.

We prepare, ultimately, for the arrival of my other four, who are coming with an army that will bring a whole new meaning to "Shock and Awe." They and their Commander are utterly invincible; resistance to their invasion will be met with withering, and all-consuming firepower. That army is VERY well-equipped; not a nation nor any coalition of nations will withstand their onslaught; they will play for keeps, they will take no prisoners, and their final victory will be global in reach, comprehensive in scope, and permanent in duration.

Everything good that you wished would be firmly established in perpetuity will be.

Everything rotten that you wished would be uprooted and permanently destroyed will be.

These Earth-altering plans are cast in stone; their execution is a certainty, and their outcome is assured.

Perhaps the best aspect of the entire operation is that it is so huge, so all-encompassing, and so contrary to what we see, and hear every day that it is easily disbelieved, thus we can quite easily conceal our operations right out in the open, because those who would be our most vigorous foes are too busy laughing to mount an opposition.

That day will soon draw to a close. Events will transpire that reveal the nature and scope of all we have accomplished, and in that day our foes will curse their pooh-poohing, curse their dismissal of our work, and rise in vehement wrath against the network; going about to destroy it, and undo all that we have established.

Embrace truth, therefore, love mercy, act justly, and walk humbly. Something wicked this way comes, and it will saturate the furthest reaches of the Earth, but only to be vanquished.

When the sun rises, my sons and daughters will stand above the valley of slaughter and watch the birds feast on the slain. May God will that I live long enough to stand with them, and at last breathe free of all that we now curse.

In case you missed it, only 50% of the people Posting here will Vote for Obama’s opponent in November.

Enjoy the next Four Years. The three Liberal Justices that Obama appoints to the the SCOTUS will, that's for sure.

Apparently it's easier to fold your Cards before the Flop than to wait for the Turn and the River.

There is always the next deal in 2016. We might get lucky if America still exists in something like its present form. You never know.

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.

Right. Well he has been trying to destroy the country since he got in office. Now he is getting even more desperate it seems. From his standpoint this sort of crap is a win/win. He gets his base energized plus this could help grease the skids for more illegals to vote. He could still steal this election. Then if he loses he has lobbed as many grenades as he can on his way down. Like the scene at the beginning of "For your eyes only" when the chained guy is still trying to destroy the sub while he is drowning.

Romney is against Amnesty and Tom Tancredo enorsed Romney

I will believe that Willard has a conservative bone in his body when I see him actually DO something conservative. He's got a record in government that would make any liberal proud.

Color me HIGHLY skeptical about his stance on illegal immigration. I think Tom Tancredo's been punked. He'll live to regret it.

Romney is against Amnesty....

Sure he is. He can't even call Ubama's bypass of Congress illegal...

Romney Screws The Pooch On Immigration

"Okay, maybe that wasn’t the best metaphor, but he fumbled an important opportunity. The problem with the president’s amnesty decree is not that it “makes it more difficult to reach that long-term solution because an executive order is, of course, just a short-term matter — it can be reversed by subsequent presidents.”

The problem is that it’s u-n-c-o-n-s-t-i-t-u-t-i-o-n-a-l. You would expect Allen West and Steve King to be forceful in denouncing this usurpation, but even Amnesty John McCain and Rick “you don’t have a heart” Perry were strong. Heck, Lindsey Graham — Lindsey Graham — denounced the move as “possibly illegal.” And the fact that Romney didn’t answer when asked if he’d reverse the order is an especially bad sign."
