    what we do know is that the interviewer is manipulative. we know this by his insisting that Obama's comments reflected the president's dislike of his answers being challenged, when that edited video clearly describes Obama actually objecting to being interrupted

    my speculation is the interviewer has an agenda to so wantonly misrepresent what the president said



    notice how desperate the reich wing is, to trot this out. it is telling. they have so little to be able to criticize they must fabricate things to whine about

    of course the 2012 republican nominee will be a shoo in ... too bad they don't have one
    Exactly. This is the game that is played. I could agree that "W" was also treated like this during his tenure, but I cannot remember a time when he did an interview with a local reporter, or any hard hitting 1 on 1 interviews. The soft-core porn interviews he and Cheney did on Fox do not count.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I really don't think this president has done anything 100 percent wrong or he is a bad person... The president has to make tough decisions, and he has to defend them. You might not like how he defends his decisions or his reasoning, but because this is a free country, you're not going to be killed or punished for disagreeing with the leader. But to think this president is a liar, a secret Muslim, socialist, and Kenyan who secretly wants to destroy America is just stupid and insane, and the epitome of ignorant.

    Some idiots really think the president is all bad and no good... If they hear the president explaining himself like a decent human being, guided by morality and good intent, then that entire bogeyman image might be shattered and idiots on talk radio might have less doomsday BS to scare people about.
    When "W" was president I had the same thought. I always believed he was a good guy. Someone I could go have a beer with and so forth. I disagreed with him politically, and would never, ever vote for him, but it was never because I thought he was an evil guy with thoughts of world domination. And I remember getting angry when my fellow Liberals would compare him to Hitler and other despots. Just like when Conservatives say that Obama is a socialist, calling Bush names was never productive.

    Anyway. Off track here. You can now resume the thread...

    It wasn’t rude. The president was just being an arrogant crybaby.

    I agree wholeheartedly, I looked to the guy as the devil for a while and after a bit and seeing footage of him being himself I took that stance. Still, he was only a petít fascist. Not hitler by any means.

    Could you explain to me when it stopped being rude to interrupt somebody?

    Actually, how do we know. We only saw select cuts.

    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.

    The guys I do business with in New York or just grade-A pompous assholes. And they don't even know it. It's like they're on an internet forum 24 hours a day, but in public. LOL
    Well people love to sterotype the people of New Yawk but those people will have your back like no others. Can they be crass? Sure but you see what happened after 9/11! How they all banded together. Say what you will the people of New York are good folks. They may be loud at times or whatever but so what that makes em special

    Sure, when someone lies or gets a number wrong, it isn't considered rude to stop them to correct the untrue statement.

    Did you ask yourself this question with the same insight you show here before expressing an opinion? I'll look back at the comments and see if you expressed an opinion one way or the other so you can't hide from it.

    I'll get you a link to the uncut, entire interview (was about 8 minutes long) in a few.
