    When the answer has ended and the person launches into a speech, it's appropriate for the reporter to cut it short and move on. President Obama has demonstrated his ability, repeatedly, to ramble on with speeches well after any question has been answered and the inadequate answer forgotten.

    The reporter wasn't the ass in this instance.

    Actually I have to disagree for this reason: This was not an interview in which it was being taped live, and where time would have been an issue. It was heavily cut and editied. He very well could have listened and used that which spoke to his questions. He also editorializes at the end. Obama did not say he opposed being challenneged. He said he didn't like being interrupted. There is a difference. The reporter makes a subjective call, and in the end editoralizes.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Reporters are annoying - I actually think it's good that Obama is unwilling ot tolerate their immaturity and benine rude crap.

    It's been a couple days since I watched it, but I recall at least one occasion where the reporter interrupted the President. That's rude.

    On the bus one day I got up to give my seat to a woman who was standing. A man quickly took it before she could sit down. He thought that was very funny.

    New Yorkers (NYC), in general, are not very nice people.

    Outside of NYC they are as decent and nice as anywhere else in America.
    Yeah, I was gonna say -- where is this foreign country where people look at you funny for being polite, and how is it related to where I live?

    My dad was born and raised in Little Falls and we still have lots of family who live in the area.

    Last summer we went to Chenango Valley State Park for a family reunion.

    Beautiful country and very, very nice people up there.

    The absolute best part of NY, aside from from the upper north end. I'll bet it's killer out there during the fall.

    Good stuff!
