Reporter Interrupts Obama Remarks
Wall Street Journal ^ | 6/15/12 | Jared A. Favole

Posted on 06/15/2012 4:44:43 PM PDT by jimbo123

President Barack Obama’s Rose Garden remarks on his new immigration policy took a bizarre turn Friday, when a reporter for a conservative website interrupted his remarks with questions.

Neil Munro, who works for the website the Daily Caller, shouted a few minutes into the president’s nine-minute speech. Mr. Munro asked why Mr. Obama favors foreigners over Americans, an apparent dig at the president’s new policy.

Mr. Obama responded, “Excuse me sir, it’s not time for questions sir.” Mr. Obama later said, the “next time I’d prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask that question.” (See the video.)

Mr. Munro then interrupted the president again, and Mr. Obama said “I did not ask for an argument; I’m answering your question.” Mr. Obama said his policy was the “right thing to do.”

The interruption livened up Friday afternoon’s Twitter feeds.

Excellent question. All we are hearing is how rude this journalist was by interrupting his reading of his teleprompter.

Because foreigners are more likely to vote for Obama in the next election than are Americans. Duh.

According to Barry, the “right thing to do” is to let another 800,000 illegals take the jobs of Americans that are out of work.

We have millions of Americans who cannot find work and returning “war” veterans who cannot find work and the Dictator in Chief wants to give the few jobs around to illegals?

Where’s the outrage out of the US Congress?? You know, the group of Eunuchs occupying seats in DC.

Yes, the MSM is saying that the president was “heckled”-that’s what MSM calls it when a “conservative” journalist asks a question. But, what did they call it when Nixon, Reagan, and GWB were harassed/”heckled” by MSM(Rather, Donaldson, Sawyer, etal), why that’s just serious journalism trying to get serious answers no matter how ridiculous the question/context.

Yeah, tell it to the founders. I respect the office of the President...doesn't mean I have to respect the socialist/communist/ facist that holds the office. This maniac sitting on what he thinks is the throne gets no respect from me.

“Mr. Obama said his policy was the ‘right thing to do’” . . . if I am to have any chance to get enough illegal invaders to the polling booths to squeak out a win.

Good work, Munro. The only reporter who will challege the Kenyan Fraud.

Oh, my.

Someone doesn’t know his place when interacting with the King.

He is the King now, isn’t he?

Has he disbanded congress or is he just ignoring them?

F*** him.

He's disgrace not worthy of the respect normally attributed to the office. He has absolutely no respect whatsoever for America, Americans (i.e. us and our families) or our system of laws.

In a just world the press corps and anyone else near him would be ridiculing and throwing fruit at him at every opportunity.

There are no jobs to take. This will just add 800,000 people to the ranks of the officially unemployed. This should push the unemployment rate well into the double digits.
