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
— @ppppolls via web
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.
