Quote of the Day

"What this man did yesterday is something new, to me wrong and unusual. I think it is probably the result of the growing incivility of the times, the competition among reporters and news organizations to be noticed not only for the work product but for the theatrics of the gathering…and there is one more factor, let’s face it: Many on the political right believe this president ought not to be there – they oppose him not for his polices and political view but for who he is, an African American! These people and perhaps even certain news organizations (certainly the right wing talkers like Limbaugh) encourage disrespect for this president. That is both regrettable and adds, in this case, to the general dislike of the press on the part of the general public."
~Sam Donaldson on The Daily Caller's Neil Munro's interuption (some call it heckling) during President Obama's prepared remarks on immigration policy in the Rose Garden.

For those unfamiliar with this reporter's debacle on behalf of Tucker Carlson's hack website, here's some edited video.

Of course, to save what little face he has left, Munro said he mistimed the question, thinking the President was finishing his remarks. The video obviously shows his disrespect and disdain for the Commander in Chief. Had he mistimed his question, it would make sense that he wouldn't continue the interruption after being corrected by President Obama.

How many times are we going to witness the unbelievable disrespect on the part of the right wing and GOP, not only in an attempt to delegitimize President Obama in the eyes of their lemmings, but a continual insolence to the office of the presidency itself? From birthers to tea party troglodytes, it just never stops.

This Quote of the Day was followed up by the Tweet of the Day:

And for those who aren't familiar with that story, I suppose 65 year old Mitt Romney is still in high school prank mode.

Its so pathetic that no one on the MSM especially none of the networks dare to point out between Joe "you lie"Wilson,Trump,Limbaugh, all of the wing nuts in office,and this asshole nobody dares to point out that alot of this is racially motivated.If they are too afraid to point this out then what exactly do they think their job is?
