Obama responds angrily to reporter’s question, then walks out

President Barack Obama’s angry response to a reporter who interrupted his Rose Garden remarks Friday was the latest salvo in what some political experts see as an era of incivility.

Neil Munro, a White House correspondent for the Washington-based website The Daily Caller, asked the president about his administration’s dramatic policy shift on immigration while the president was in the middle of delivering prepared remarks.

“Excuse me, sir. It’s not time for questions, sir,” Obama fired back. “Not while I’m speaking.”

Munro later told CNN’s Brianna Keilar, “I have to ask the questions you all won’t ask,” referring to the reporters gathered who regularly cover the White House.

“I always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the president of the United States,” Munro said in a statement on the Caller’s website. “I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.”

  • If we follow President Obama’s logic, I can rob a bank, give the money to my kids and they should be able to keep the money because they feel like millionaires in their hearts and minds.
    He’s keeping Florida from throwing out illegal votes and telling illegal aliens, if they vote for him, he’ll give them amnesty.

    Does ANYBODY have the B***S to tell [Obama], just Who he works for? It’s time for an Arrest. charges, Conviction, for this Treasonous, Fraud, pResident !

      It is beyond me why this man is not arrested. He has committed crime after crime and refuses to respond to queries from the press, citizens or Congress. Who is in charge here? I am still under the belief that the country belongs to the citizens and not some puppet.

      He is President Dark Invader. Since no candidate for our Presidency would dare speak to a reporter or a citizen in that abusive manner and tone, it is clear he is confident of his reelection like he told the current Russian President in a whisper that was caught by a Hot Mic he was not aware of. It adds up to obvious conclusion that there is some power group manipulating our elections. A thought. Now that Spain and other countries are dealing with down the drain finances, doesn’t that mean that our votes cannot be sent to other countries for counting? Another “decision” by Pres. Dark Invader.

      Why do we stand for this ?
      He dose not be long in office!
      He is not a king, he ………….. needs to be removed!

    I just hope the general public is as incensed about this criminal act committed by the usurper yesterday. I hope his blatant attempt to bribe votes from the illegal population bites him in the backside.

  • Harold Clark

    He walks away from the honest questions because he is a commie wimp and a wannabe dictator. He knows he is breaking the law and that we don’t have anyone in the congress who is ‘American enough’ to do anything about it.

    Get on the phone on Monday morning…call your congressman and Senators…202-224-3121 (switchboard).

    Tell the staffer you’re furious about what the Dictator is up to…let them know we are out here and are fed up. Congress will NEVER impeach if they don’t think the American people care.

    Don’t talk about picking up arms in a revolution if you won’t even pick up a phone and make three calls.

    • DocJohnM

      You got that right, all this talking about a revolution will get you is being placed on a terrorist watch list which is just dumb. The pen is mightier than the sword or in this case, the phone.

    I think this incident was a setup. Obama is running a Play out of Robert Kennedy’s 1968 Presidential Campaign. Kennedy was heckeled on a policy when a man shouted out “who’s gonna Pay?” never missing a beat he retorted back “You Sir! and this is why.” Everyone was impressed by his display of leadership. Poor Obama he just can’t pull it off.

    If Obama wants the respect that is due to the President of the United States, all he has to do is to produce the legal documents that show that he is even eligible for the job. Throwing little hissey fits shouldn’t get him off the hook. Until he produces that proof, he does NOT deserve any respect.

    • DocJohnM

      Maurice, AMEN to your comment!

  • DocJohnM

    It’s his way or the highway, he’s as mature as a thirteen year old! He could care less about his constituency, we simply don’t matter and it’s the same in Congress. They all should get a pink slip and then start over again. I’m sick to death of this liberal, socialistic attitude of the money people: Hollywood, Soros, etc. It’s time to shut them up with conservative candidates. 2012, pink slip time, from the president on down!

  • (Prophecy) This is America’s first Dictator! There is no Democracy anymore, and you will never see him leave office!

    How dare this reporter ask the King about his motives or aims? The reporter and the people have no right to question Obama. You know he’s the King and is not required to answer questions about his agenda. All hail the great Leader Obama.
