    Honestly since when do we live in a country where people are suppose to bow down to the press? I think it should be the other way around and Obama should put em in check all he wants to.

    I musta missed the memo about the POTUS or anybody for that matter should have to suck any reporters jocks or panties. I do not think so.

    You think the press should bow down to the president? That is scary and doesn't sound like any New Yorker I know.

    I thought you libs were saying during the daily snarky bashing of GWB that it was the Presses job to challenge the President? What is it? Only when it is an opposition President that it is ok?

    That you illibs fail to differentiate between challenge and common decency is unsurprising.

    No, but he needs to have manners, and not chastise someone for doing nothing. His power has gone to his head.

    If this exact thing happened but with John Boehner or Sarah Palin, you libs would be decrying them as being thin skinned and playing the victim. That you display such an obvious double standard is equally unsurprising.

    in this instance, i see it is Obama who was unable to make such distinction
    the reporter was not intrusive with his questioning technique
    the lack of interruptions in that interview makes it appear that Obama was actually objecting to the intrusiveness of the questions' topic, focusing on Obama's limited support in texas
    had the reporter been truly rude, then Obama's admonishment would have been a legitimate action. but since there was no rudeness to be found, Obama did nothing more than expose his short temper and ill feelings about his limited texan support

    Nothing wrong with challenging the president. This has been repeated over and over again. What has also been said is that if you believe a question is important enough to ask, it should be important enough to listen to the naswer. This is a general truth, beyond this specific case. And nothing about not being rude means you can't be tough.

    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.
