President Obama was recently interupted in a speech by a question from a reporter and told him "not while I'm speaking, it's not time for questions". Then when he finished speaking, Obama walked off without taking any questions. Ha!Ha!

Professor Martha Kumar of Towson University released a study of how President Obama interacts with the media. Kumar says that Obama has held 17 solo press conferences at the White House so far. By comparison, at this point in their presidency Clinton had 31, Bush 56, and Reagan 21.

Also, she said, President Obama has been far more reluctant to engage in impromptu back and forth with reporters, at photo sprays and the like. President Obama has taken questions at 94 such events.

For Bush Jr. that number was 307; for Bill Clinton, 493; for Bush Sr., 263; for Reagan 120.

It is clear Obama doesn't like to speak or answer questions without his telepromter.

I am sure this reporter will be barred from future chances to be at any presidential speeches.So far our leader has not answered any questions for the voters except the same old tired campaign garbage from his previous election.His latest immigration policy that our elected officials never got a chance to vote on as representitives of their voters was simply implemented by a dictorial leader that will do whatever it takes to buy minority votes.Its painfully obvious and ill concealed.He has shown no real interest in whats best for the country since his election and is obviously for sale to the highest bidder.Democracy is in its last stages unless we wake up fast.

If you look back at history, the mark of a "good" president was the ability to quickly formulate a response, no matter how long-winded, irrevelent or untrue it was.
It's a simple process learned early in most politicans' careers! LOL!

This is ridiculous. He had his teleprompter during the speech.

Name another instance of a reporter interrupting a President while speaking.

I can think of a few others that should have used the teleprompter a little more. I'm not sure why this is continually brought up considering they have used them for 50 years.
