Nobody interrupts POTUS: The outburst heard 'round the world
When the even-keeled and cool President Obama gets prickly in public, it never goes unnoticed... So it’s no surprise that Washington took notice when after a tense interview with a Texas TV reporter on Monday, Obama unclipped his microphone with no smile in sight, and tersely warned, “Let me finish my answers next time we do an interview, all right?”
Perhaps now we know why legacy media blistered Sarah Palin with complex, amorphous policy questions while simultaneously lobbing softballs to Obama.
Kudos to WFAA reporter Brad Watson for his straightforward questioning of the president.
Watson: Why do you think you're so unpopular in Texas?
A: Well, Texas has always been a... uhh... Republican state for... uhh... historic reasons... we, uhh, lost by a few percentage points in Texas --
Watson: ...Actually, you lost by about ten...
Watson: Was the shuttle not awarded to Houston due to politics?
A: I just said that wasn't true.
Watson: Are you going to campaign in Texas, or is the state written off?
A: I never write off... states and, uhh, I love, uhh, Texas.
Watson: After the interview, Obama pointed out that he doesn't like the interviewer challenging him (Obama: "Let me finish my answers the next time we're doing an interview.")
Has America ever had a more petulant and narcissistic man serve in the White House?
For you drones: that's a rhetorical question.
