This Sam Donaldson commentary about the Daily Caller reporter who interrupted Obama is so pathetic and laughable it’s almost hard to know where to start:

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, the dislike for the mainstream press on the part of the general public has nothing to do with decorum. The dislike stems from the fact that you’re so f*#-%ing blinded by liberal bias, and your statement above only reiterated that.

“They don’t oppose him for his policies, but because he’s an African-American”? Limbaugh spends three hours a day criticizing Obama’s policies, and we do that a bit here at this blog too. Sam Donaldson and his ilk are the ones who continually introduce color into the equation — and that’s because they can’t win the argument on the facts, so they resort to accusations of racism. Limbaugh also criticized Bill Clinton. Was that racist?

In 1987, the Associated Press published an article that, according to Donaldson’s reasoning, proves that some reporters at the time were also racist:

null

Donaldson et al have to pretend the press has always operated with the utmost decorum and respect for the presidency — until Obama was elected and right-leaning reporters got their bigotry on — because the only way they can sell the “racist” meme is by selling it under false pretenses.

It’s simply amazing… Obama cops a squat on the Constitution yet again (by his own admission) and some are shocked and offended that a reporter disrespected him? Any reporter concerned with his or her First Amendment rights should be a little more wary of Obama’s disregard for the Constitution than they should be with Neil Munro interrupting Obama’s announcement of another King-like decree.

I also remember not long ago when the left erupted in applause for the Iraqi reporter who threw a shoe at President Bush. Newsweek reporter Michael Hirsh called Bush shoe-throwing incident a “measure of justice,” and the left wing blogosphere loved the shoe-throwing reporter. Now they’re deeply offended by a Daily Caller reporter for interrupting The One. Go figure.

Now everybody be quiet and don’t interrupt Obama. This is his 100th round of golf since taking office, so the pressure is on.

And now, just because it’s funny, here’s a clip of Reagan answering a question from Donaldson:

    As I recall, Sam`s interruptions, er uh, questions to my fave President ever, Ronaldus Magnus, weren`t "rude", per se; they were just lead-ins to some great comedic responses; opportunities to showcase RR`s genius at delivering hilarious smack-downs, unlike our current Flop-in-Chief who can`t tell a joke without a teleprompter !

    Sam "I am a legend in my own mind" Donaldson was not rude to a president. He was rude to every one!!!! What a pompous ass.

  3. SignPainterGuy on June 17th, 2012 7:14 pm

    Sam is the kinda guy you`d say was, "out-standing in his field". When you`d go to visit him, there he`d be, "out, standing in his field" !

    I know that`s old, but so is this leftist crap; having to flip everything the dems do to get the true meaning and intention !

    “…Sam Donaldson … is so pathetic…” (miserably or contemptibly inadequate)

    If this is really what he believes then he has so completely disqualified himself from any future press corps and rendered himself wholly inadequate to the task of the press, useless, and unable to critique or even ask probing questions solely on the basis of the skin color of the speaker, for to do so is to be a racist, in his belief system.

    To live in such fear so as to be unable to disagree with someone of another skin color is a phobic neurosis and is indeed “pathetic.” But, then to turn and project one’s belief system onto others and then attempt to chastise or rebuke them for one’s own phobic hatred is beyond pathetic and contemptible.

    He has become a liberal-speak, a thinking man’s throw away.

    True… Donaldson was more of an unwitting straight-man for Reagan than a reporter.

  7. SignPainterGuy on June 17th, 2012 11:51 pm

    Thank You, clu !

  8. SignPainterGuy on June 17th, 2012 11:53 pm

    Happy Daddy`s Day, Doug ! How`s the lovely Wifely type person ?

    Sam, the people do not trust the press, because the press continues to prove on a daily basis how much in the bag they are for Obama.

    I wonder what these same reproters will do when Obama decrees that his administration will start "fact checking" every story prior to release so as to ensure the truthfullness of the story?

  10. SignPainterGuy on June 18th, 2012 12:42 pm

    Just checking; that would be manu-"fact"-ured "facts, right ?

  11. jeffythequick on June 18th, 2012 12:52 pm

    Their in-fact-uation would only grow stronger. This way, they can love dear leader and worship him out in the open, instead of the ruse of having a story.

  12. Marshall_Will on June 18th, 2012 12:58 pm

    In viewing the vidclip of Munro, I saw… a man, utterly defeated, knocked OUT on his feet, but like a defiant CHAMP, refusing to accept the loving grace and warm EMBRACE of that inviting canvas. A ticket OUT.

    Where our OPPROBRIUM can no longer be our public SHAME. I've heard and believe it's an accepted psychological state for abuse/rape victims to "have an out of body experience" in their effort to displace themselves from that horrid event.

    Kind of like the last 3 1/2 years?

  13. SignPainterGuy on June 18th, 2012 2:38 pm

    Sounds like a clamp-down on state-controlled media; they will report only the approved state version of the stories ! (can`t call it news)

  14. SignPainterGuy on June 18th, 2012 2:46 pm

    Munro or Obama ?

    In a vid I watched Saturday (?) Munro was interviewed by The Daily Caller; he sounded resigned to the fact that he was at least somewhat out-of-line. PPpffffffftt, let`s have some more Joe "You Lie" Wilson moments, but without the apologies afterward ! Hit the manchild who would be king HARD and RELENTLESSLY !!

  15. Truesoldier__ on June 18th, 2012 3:36 pm

    The thing that struck me the most is that Obama told Munro that he didn't want an argument on the issue when Munro tried to ask a follow up question. The press ought to pay attention to this moment as it is very telling. The problem is the press is so infatuated with Obama that they are blinded to what just happened.

  16. Marshall_Will on June 18th, 2012 4:47 pm

    Well, we can HOPE it serves as something of a wake up call? Unless of course getting a 'personal' Finger Wagging (TM) is the sort of thing that turns you on?

    Until proven otherwise, as far as I'm concerned, the balance of the MSM cross dresses on the weekends and has to use tons of makeup remover before reporting to work on Monday morning.

    Do they snicker under their breath on that elevator ride up… ( My *heels* were killing! Yeah, I KNOW, me too! ) Man UP you wussies!

  17. SignPainterGuy on June 18th, 2012 9:00 pm

    Heh, the lefty msm have a standard (double, triple, etc.) for every face and outfit they wear !
