Obama gets upset and witchy at reporter asking a question



LINK

Watch the videos linked in the story. Never understood the "Obama is likeable guy" rep. He's acting like a dictator today in more ways than one.

Meh....most people get irritated if someone constantly interrupts them.

The "likable guy" thing has never made sense to me either though. I know plenty of douchebags who drink beer, play basketball, and fill out NCAA brackets.

re: Obama gets upset and witchy at reporter asking a question


I was about to start a thread for this but I'll just post it here instead.

MSNBC Guest: Would A White President Get Heckled?

quote:

"This is just so unprecedented and outrageous, that you have to ask the question, would the right-wing president be doing this if we had a white president there?" MSNBC guest and Democratic strategist Julian Epstein said on the channel this afternoon.

"I think it's a vert important question because I think this is the first African-American president. We've never had a white president been told by the opposing party to shut up in the middle of a major address to the Congress. We've never had a president like this heckled so disrespectfully. We've never had this otherness afforded to any other president and I think the right wing has some explaining to do because to me it's patently obvious," he said

I'm semi-torn.

The reporter was out of line for interrupting.

That being said, I'm wondering if someone tipped-off the Daily Caller reporter that Obama wouldn't be answering any questions following his statement? Indeed, Obama ended up scurrying off--without taking questions from the press, post remarks--despite the fact that he said that "he'd answer questions later."

It's Friday. Very timely. I'm thinking Dear Leader Obama wanted to issue his executive fiat, but not answer for it.

The Dems, er DUMS, always treated G W Bush so respectfully.

This is another LIAR just like our present LIAR-in-Chief.

I think most people would, the guy was interrupting his speech, it wasn't during questioning time.

Unfortunately, a "questioning time" never occurred. Obama bailed, post-statement.

Totally inappropriate. Let the President speak. Even if he wants to ramble for hours and hours. It's a product of the Office.

There was no question time. If there is an issue to be raised, it's the lack of actual questioning that occurs at these statements and press conferences. Obama called on 3 people at last Friday's press conference.

They should yank the Daily Caller's press pass IMO

Perhaps reporters feel the need to interrupt since Obama doesn't answer many questions - if any at all.

I'm no fan of the mainstream media either (the correspondents association condemned the reported for interrupting King Obama his worship), but I don't like the attitude Obama takes when he is challenged.

I agree. And I'd bet bucks that'll happen.

But everyone knows what happened out there today. This was a political move by Obama. On a Friday. He wanted to drop the bomb, then run.

It's going to backfire.

Reporter was out of line. Period.

He lectures. He doesn't like being interrupted mid-lecture.

My biggest problem with Obama is his blatant distortion of opponent's positions that he passes off with statements like "The basic fact is.." or "Independent analysts say this..." or "Republicans used to represent this..." or "This isn't political conjecture..."

I don't think anyone disputes that.

No President should be interrupted by a credentialed reporter while speaking from the Rose Garden. This is beyond a breach of protocol.

Not nearly as bad as his habit of following up "let me be clear" with a vague generality.

I agree, but the reporter was a douche for interrupting him mid speech.
