MSNBC Wonders If A White President Would Get Interrupted During Speech

As you’re probably aware by now, The Daily Callers Neil Munro “interrupted” Obama by daring to ask him a question at the end of Obama’s statement announcing his new de facto immunity program (I’m not calling it amnesty, because the illegals in question are not being given citizenship. Yet). It was an ill timed question at the end of a speech in which the White House had announced that it would not take questions from the press, probably because Obama doesn’t do well with questions. The line “the private economy is doing fine” came about during a Q&A session. The rest of that session last week was pretty bad, too. It was ill time, because Obama runs on so long that sometimes people don’t know if he’s ended, especially since Obama sometimes pauses like he expects applause.

Anyhow, The Blaze watches MSNBC so the rest of us don’t have to deal with the insanity

MSNBC jumped at the opportunity to pull the race card after The Daily Caller‘s Neil Munro and President Obama got into a heated exchange during the president’s White House speech on immigration earlier today.

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

“Well, you go ahead and answer that question Julian,” host Martin Bashir replied.

So he did.

“I think it’s a very 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.

Video available at the link, if you can stomach the leftist tools pulling the race card yet again.

Was it rude? A bit. Disrespectful? Was the journalist trying to do his job by asking the POTUS questions? Yes. That’s what journalists do. And let’s not forget, the POTUS is not a god, not royalty. POTUS is just another citizen of the USA, and is supposed to be responsible to The People.

Many Lefties, like Talking Point Memo’s David Kurtz, are having fits, saying this is terrible. Or, like above, raaaaacist. They sure didn’t feel that way when Bush was interrupted. They laughed when someone threw a shoe at Bush. Back in 2009, American Power highlighted Democrats applauding their own obstructionism, interrupting Bush’s 2006 State of the Union speech. Interrupted by liberals during an Independence Day speech. Bush was interrupted many times by liberal protesters. Interestingly, none on the left complained about it. ABC News has a list of some other notable interruptions, and how presidents handled that.

Oh, look, here’s some more of those evil raaaaacist right wingers interrupting Obama during a speech

Weird how when it’s Occupy Wall Street interrupting he doesn’t get all snappy and petulant. And liberals don’t become all self righteous about it being rude and stuff.

    I seem to remember the press being quite sympathetic towards the fellow that threw a shoe at Bush’s head. Oh right…he’s a Republican and deserved it. If todays media didn’t have their hypocrisy they’d have nothing.

    The shoe was not thrown by an American citizen at an American President. This is the second time that the right wing has rushed to defend, remember when Obama was interrupted in his State of the Union speech by a Republican shouting “Liar” ?

  3. Gumball_Brains says:

    Yeah John, that was a great moment in politics. Still brings a happy tear to my eye.

    Hey Teach, this recent tyrannical action by the prez may not be amnesty in its traditional sense, but it is a forgiveness of a felony. (hmmmm… sounds kinda like someone given an amnesty on their criminal background and future punishment.)

    But, did you catch that this is not his fault? This is all the doing of DHS and he is just announcing that DHS will announce it. Not his fault.

  4. Maybe Obama shouldn’t lie during the SOTU speech. People have a right to defend themselves.

    I fund it interesting that you failed to condemn any of the people who interrupted Bush, John.

    Of course it’s not his fault, GB. Isn’t DHS an agency run by Congressional Republicans?

    In fact Teach, DHS was in fact created by the most vile, evil, tyrannical, ever-present, over-controlling bane-of-all-time President George W Bush.

    It is his agency. In fact, GWB is even now controlling this economy and all aspects of Obama’s executive action. It is only by Obama’s sheer determination that he has saved America from GWB’s psychic efforts to destroy it.

    So ya bush got disrespected HARD all over the place. The shoe thing comes to mind plus some hard booing in public arenas. The difference here was this was a reporter interrupting a staged speech at the rose garden. Reporters asked some harsh stuff of bush but generally theyd let him finish getting through his staged speech before jumping on him.

    Really this shouldnt be a national story this reporter and whomever he worked for should just have their access suspended or revoked for not being able to follow a civil set of rules and that should be the end of it.

Bad Behavior has blocked 11078 access attempts in the last 7 days.
