Obama Reprimands 'Daily Caller' Creep for Heckling Behavior in Rose Garden: VIDEO

Rosegarden

President Obama announced his new immigration rules today regarding halting deportations of young DREAM Act-eligible immigrants and in the process was questioned/heckled by Neil Munro, a reporter from Tucker Carlson's conservative rag The Daily Caller.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

CNN:

At one point after the President addressed him directly, Munro called out, "What about American workers who are unemployed while you employ foreigners?"

"Excuse me sir, it is not the right time for questions sir," Obama said as Munro shouted questions. "Not while I'm speaking."

"The next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask your question," Obama said later in his remarks. "I didn't ask for an argument, I'm answering your question."

  1. F&ck you RICK. You, that scumbag Munro, and trash like you are the ones who are trying to "racialize" the election. I'm as white as white can be and I don't fear other races like you do nor will I ever. I've met racist pigs like you throughout my life and you can try to disguise your $hit all you want, but you still stink.

  2. Wouldn't it be cool if Tucker Carlson stated how offended he was at the disrespect to the individual and the office of the presidency and fired the guy? Wouldn't that be classy?

  3. It's not as if the jackass B. Hussein Obama is violating the Constitution or breaking any laws or anything. He needs to be interrupted MORE, not less, before he completely destroys the country.
    GONE IN 2012!!!!

  4. I'm a liberal and fully AGAINST illegal immigration and any pro illegal immigration rights. It doesn't make you hateful, it makes you respectful of the law.

  5. If a reporter had pulled this stunt with W he would have been dragged out of the rose garden in chains and sent to Gitmo in a box.

  6. I don't think being opposed to illegal immigration and rewards to illegal immigrants makes you this bigoted individual. I'm a long time poster on here for years, and always rational and pretty progressive in my opinions. For those of us who are actually IN states greatly effected by a high concentration of illegal immigrants...we feel the consequences of pro illegal immigrant stances. We feel the heat of their presence. Are all illegal immigrants bad with ill will? surely not. But even if 30% are out commiting some form of crime (and there's actually more doing so. be it identity theft to more dramatic) then that's one too many.

    It's time to not get emotional with this issue, and deal with the FACTS and effects of rewarding those here illegally (young or old)

  7. I support Obama and will vote for him 100% BUT I do not support this decision, and this political pandering of those who's first move in this nation was an illegal one. For their children to cut in front of the line, and be rewarded with IN STATE tuition, pay cuts and hand outs before our American kids who are struggling to go to school is beyond intolerable. We're in an economic hurricane and we want to see how we can allow over 12 million other people, here illegally, apply for the same student loans AND jobs as Americans already struggling to stay alive?
    Just because I'm a liberal does not mean I have to flippantly and sheepishly follow all liberal rulings. 99% liberal, 99% Obama supporters, WILL vote for him, but this is the 1% area where I isolate myself from the democratic stance. Illegal immigration brings far more negative than positive with it.

  8. LOL....you folks should see hour 'polite' they are over in the UK. An American president has it easy compared to a Brit PM in the answering questions department.

    Yes, the 'reporter' was rude. And yes, his pass should be revoked.

    But, isn't this the same president who made a million promises about 'transparency' and having regular press conferences, unlike Bush? What the heck happened? Apparently, Bush had more press conferences than President Obama. Go figure.

  9. While Obama makes right with amazing efforts toward LGBT equality, we also know the demographic he's rewarding with illegal immigration (Latinos) aren't so favorable toward gay rights. By enabling more illegal immigration and the children of illegal immigrants, it will soon create a voting pool that is opposed to our rights. I think about that and the FACTS of Prop 8, and the high number of Latino men who voted against our freedom and rights. It's for that reason that I don't favor just opening the borders and seeing our rights be set back decades because of folks who shouldn't even be here in the first place.

  10. What that stupid reporter did was disrespectful and wrong. But so is basically telling Mexican parents that if they can smuggle their children here in this country, the child can become a legal resident, go to school, get a job and have a better life. What kind of message is that sending? a harmful one that will harm the way of life for our country. A country already in bad economic shape.

  12. IONMUSIC,

    You are not as progressive as you think you are. You think illegal immigrants are out committing crimes because you see lots of brown people locked up in jail, so they must be illegal, right?

    The overwhelming majority of illegal immigrants are hard-working, law-abiding citizens. They contribute to our society. They keep the cost of goods and services low by performing menial jobs for a wage that others, outside of a few high school students, would not.

    I am a lifelong California resident. I've worked with illegal immigrants my entire life. Rarely have I met any that were anything other than a joy to know and to work with.

    I recognize that we must have immigration policy, and there's a limit to the number of people we can allow into the country. But we should not be punishing bright, hard-working young people because they were born on the wrong side of a fence.

    If a child is brought here illegally, through no fault of his own, he should not be punished.

  13. Part of the willingness of the "Christian Right" to overlook Romney's cult polytheism doubtless comes from the certainty that HE is Super-White.

  14. USC Trojan Fan,

    Illegal immigrants weren't the ones voting against gay rights. I'm not sure how long your family has been in California, but Latinos have been there alot longer. Instead of trying to scapegoat a group of people, you should be working to change their attitudes. Like all still opposed to LGBT equality, the obstacle is religion, not race or ethnicity.

    What's next? Should we start sending African Americans back to Africa because a large enough percentage don't support LGBT rights? Fighting prejudice with prejudice does not work.

  15. Shawnthesheep,

    Yes you ARE for open borders. What you preach is this idealistic approach of dealing with every illegal immigrant on a case by case basis, while you overlook the many horrific crimes acted out by illegal immigrants of all sectors through out the years...WHICH CAN BE FOUND A GOOGLE SEARCH AWAY. You want to trivialize the life of all the drunk driving accident victims who died in the hands of a drunk illegal immigrant behind a vehicle he should not have been in the first place. You want to overlook the brutal beating, rape, and killing recently of a lesbian women in the hands of a group of illegal immigrants. You want to overlook the illegal immigrant GANGS...many many of them, who seek out young children online and have gang bang rituals with them. All these stories relating back to an illegal immigrant can be found online, but what you and calculating folks like you for amnesty want is for us to ignore those facts, those stories, and THOSE VICTIMS. Because of your calculating agenda. We won't ignore it.

    One life cut short in the hands of someone who shouldn't be here in the first place is one life to many.

  16. @ SHAWNTHESHEEP

    Your entire outlook on out reach is over simplistic. GLBT have enough of an uphill battle "helping educate" the masses in America. Saying we recognize the extreme disconnect and disdain a certain group has for us, a group that logistically and legally should not be here, and wanting to fight for our self preservation first with foresight is not an inhumane act. It's a necessity and one all demographics think of. The challenge is already there to attain equality (yet being won over) with Americans. I'd rather not welcome millions of devout Catholics in the mix. That may not be your Miss America answer you'd like, but is reality of this issue.

  17. Shawnthesheep-

    Do you realize just how strict immigration laws in Mexico are? Do you realize the steps and loop holes and process to migrate to Mexico for citizenship? Do you even KNOW what happens to illegal immigrants in Chiapas found by the Mexican government? Do you grasp what the Mexicans think of and do toward illegals in their own nation?

    EVERY nation has laws, rules and high regulations on who can and can't enter their country, HOW they enter, HOW LONG they stay and their purpose for being there. EVERY SINGLE NATION. It's detrimental to the safety of it's citizens and the number one priority for every country and it's government should be the well being and SAFETY of it's citizens.Illegal immigrant advocates like you who essentially want to reward illegal immigration not only fail to see that, but don't care to. Shame on that mentality.

  18. Shawn the sheep, how come every country in this world gets to regulate how one enters their nation, yet the United States has to open their doors and say "come one, come all!" to anyone who wants to enter? and with no papers, or documents or even a due process on how to enter?
    Do you realize what my cousin and I endured when we applied to go live in Lebanon for a bit? And I understood it, respected the countries laws and abide by them.

  19. Actually, my uncle DID work in Construction, did lose his job, and was told by a supervisor recently that the jobs went out to illegal imigrants due to their wage for manuel labor being much less, and less costly than that of employing an American.

    There's many Americans out of work, who would take that minimum wage, or less than minimum wage that automatically goes to illegals. Go talk to real people, especially Americans who are ethnic minorities, and see how pro illegal immigration affects them.

  20. The reporter had a point. Obama talks non-stop anyway. I love all of these 11th hour changes he's making just to get elected. Hope, change, time again, and everyone's falling for it -- again. Save your scorn for your marriages. I wouldn't want to be married to any of you. Living hell.

  21. A gross, disrespectful right-wing conservative. I'm absolutely shocked!

    I hope not only he loses his WH pass but his career is ruined.

  22. I think he really hurt his vote with working class white men. He wasn't going to get that anyway but...

    Happy STFU

  23. Rick said that "he should hardly be surprised if that results in his race becoming an issue with a lot of people, particularly when so many citizens are in dire economic straits.

    Rick, the question is, who is responsible for so many citizens being in "dire economic straits? It was not the black man residing in the White House". This problem was caused by a bunch of homophobic, racist, pseudo-christian, white guys that desperately want to make sure that there not a n-g--r living in the White House for one second longer than absolutely necessary. Unfortunately for this country, there are a large number of people that will be willing to let race play a part in the way that they vote. Their bigotry and ignorance and their failure to understand the recent history of the United States will make them willing participants in "taking back America". They are willing to send this country into a depression to accomplish their purpose. The result will be a return to the policies which caused the citizens to be in their present "dire straits". Their desire to take back the country is really a desire to take the country back to policies which are likely to lead us back to a time when "hobos" were wandering the countryside looking for work for a meal. The difference this time is that the "hobos" will be armed.

  24. Obama should not have returned to him afterwards and talked to him.

    The guy shouldn't be allowed in the pressroom EVER again, and since Tucker has defended him, neither should anyone associated with the "news organization".

    Conservatives say they're love tradition. Well, that's what tradition does when you break protocol, you get punished.
