President interrupted during immigration-policy remarks



Published: Sat, June 16, 2012 @ 12:00 a.m.

Associated Press

WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama responded angrily to a reporter from a conservative online publication who interrupted him during remarks on immigration in the White House Rose Garden.

Obama was speaking about his plan to stop deporting younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Midway through the remarks Friday, Neil Munro of the Daily Caller shouted to Obama, “Why do you favor foreigners over American workers?” Obama told Munro he would not answer questions while he was speaking.

The president later addressed the reporter directly, saying the plan was the “right thing to do for the American people.” Munro continued to shout questions.

Obama told Munro he was explaining the policy, not asking for an argument.

Interesting: I found that the AP (Always Partisan) wrote in support of Sam Donaldson of ABC News when he'd do much worse to President Reagan. (The AP's agenda and tone hasn't changed through the decades.)

Regardless of you political persuation, the PRESIDENT was making an announcement and this no-class jerk pulls a kenye west . Yes, we have freedom of speech, but too many "reporters" do too much talking and not enough listening.

Just like Joe Wilson (R-SC), the reporter was rude to interupt the president. Factually correct, but rude.

When Joe Wilson shouted out that the president was lying during a speech, he was being rude. Joe was CORRECT, the president was in fact lying, but it was definitely rude to shout out during the speech.

Interrupting the president is rude, and the reporter who did this on Friday should know this. He was CORRECT, the president is in fact selling out America to gain favor and votes from a specific group of people. The president is shirking his contstitutional duty to enforce the laws; turning a blind eye to allow a favored group to violate the law in return for votes. However, it was rude to interrupt the president during a press conference.

youngstowntelegram.....You claim Obama's birth certificate is fake and his Kenya birth records stolen.

I'm sure that you have proof and just forgot to post them with your claims. Since this thread is still open how about you providing that proof? It's really not that hard I'll show you how.

You also stated that Obama uses some else's social security number. snopes.com calls BS on your claim. See how I did that? You said something stupid and in about thirty seconds I had proof that you lie.

youngstowntelegram....teabagger web sites do not count as reliable news sources. Neither do the voices in your head.

I see you also claim Obama went by the name Barry Soetoro. Never happened. It seems as though everyone in the world knows that it was an "April Fools" joke but you.

You can continue to use teabagger blogger web sites, fix noise, rush and those voices in your head for your info. I'll use the main stream media, FactCheck, PolitiFact and Snopes

GM is ALIVE,
Osama is DEAD,
The US is OUT of Iraq.
None of the aforementioned would be true had McCain been elected.
I love watching FIXED NOISE NETWORK and how they say Obama should not "politicize" those things. Apparently they forgot about Georgie Dubya and "Mission Accomplished." I get a lot of entertainment out of watching them cry like little girls.
