Obama getting a little taste of what it's like to actually get questioned by a reporte. He has not really had to deal with this before.

Who does he think he is?
The Media is not to ask Obama why, the media is the 4th branch of Government.

Spread the message!

What an upstart!!

Obama doesn't like it when the interviewer isn't a yes man or a shill. Obama needs more hard interviews instead of the namby pamby crap we are spoon fed every day.

"Let me finish my answers the next time we do an interview, all right?" he said.

In other words, Do not try to make me answer any questions I do not want to answer, and do not correct me!

Yes, the president should bumble through an answer he's not prepared to answer. Here's an exapmple of how to appear presidential:

The Great O grants interviews with reporters based on their agreement to his script. If anyone asks him something that isn't on the list of approved questions (which his staff has prepared mini-speeches for him to respond to via his trusty teleprompter) he sounds like the blithering idiot that he is. Take the man off his script and he displays not only his child-like churlishness that the reporter is not playing "fair' by straying from the talking points, but an abject lack of comprehension of the subject at hand. What a loser!

The boy does not like to play hardball, he likes the soft ones, preferably with teleprompter!!!

I didn't hear him say don't ask me questions I don't want to answer.

I heard him say is, next time we do an interview, let me answer the questions, ok?

Can anyone give me a link to an interview where GW or any other president let the guy interviewing interrupt? I'd be happy to give it a look...

Every single press conference he ever gave. They were all over him like vultures. Short term memory loss?
