From the party which brought you "You lie!," blowing soap bubbles at David Axelrod, and Mitt Romney's mobile frat house comes the latest display of extreme disrespect for the president:

If you can't watch the video, just know that Neil Munro, a reporter for the right-wag Daily Caller, attempted to interrupt President Obama while he was making an announcement on his new immigration policy this afternoon. The President wasn't having any of it, smacking down Munro and then telling him, "The next time I prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask a question." It was a remarkable display of arrogance on the reporter's part, and yet how did the Daily Caller react?
We are very proud of, @NeilMunroDC for doing his job

The whole world immediately piled on, of course. Just a sampling:
First time I have ever seen a President interrupted during a statement in the Rose Garden

Former Bush spokesman: RT @tonyfratto Reporters don't interrupt presidential statements. Period. @NeilMunroDC should be banned from WH. #fb

When I heard someone interrupted the President I immediately wondered if it was Neil Munro. Most unprofessional reporter I've ever talked to

And so what is Munro saying now? That "naturally" he had "no intention of interrupting the President of the United States." Too bad for him. Had he admitted to having every intention of trying to disrespect Obama, he'd have a much brighter future in conservative politics.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
