    You can hold an evasive politician's feet to the fire without being rude.

    There was nothing particularly evasive about him. It wasn't the white-house's decision - but a committees to place the NASA launchpad or whatever the heck they wanted. Maybe they don't know how the government works in Texas.

    Also he told that reporter like a pro.

    o(~.')b glad he stuck it to him.

    I guess I must've missed the memo that clarified that being an insightful, dogged and thorough professional required you to leave your manners at the door.

    The only time it looked like the reporter interrupted the president is when the president lied about the points he lost Texas by. Was he really supposed to just sit there and let the president make false statements without challenging him on it?

    He was actually very polite. You still haven't pointed to where he was rude in the interview.

    in contrast, status quo:

    Liberals want a “clean” vote to raise the $14.3 trillion borrowing limit.
    americans see the contrast, there's no concealing it, the divide is too deep

    leadership, anyone?

    I don't care why the reporter did it. It's rude. You can nail the president on a lie without being rude.

    As for lying how many points he lost Texas by, that could easily be him mixing the results from one state up with another.

    Much ado about nothing. Nice editing, but that is common with local stations pressed for time and content, but I would have liked to see the entire interview uncut. Regarding the comment he made at the end, whoopy. He told the guy that he didn't appreciate being cut off. Neither do I. If he wanted to debate with the President than do so without cutting him off. That said, the footage they showed did not really show the journalist cutting the President off very much. I think I saw one instance of this, but again, it was an edited piece.
