Pres. Obama Get Testy with Dallas TV Reporter

It was bound to happen that Pres. Obama would lose his cool. His target Brad Watson a 40 year veteran TV news in Dallas. Watson who works for WFAA-TV/HD “News 8” was invited to an interview with the president at the White House on Tuesday. The President accused Watson of interrupting him.  News 8:

After the interview, Obama pointed out that he doesn’t like an interviewer challenging his comments.

“Let me finish my answers the next time we do an interview, all right?” he said.

The presidents interview was wide-ranging including the economy, jobs and the awarding of the space shuttle Endvour to New York instead of Houston’s Johnson Space Center more from News 8 :

WASHINGTON — News 8 sat down with President Barack Obama at the White House Monday afternoon to discuss the economy, immigration and his approval rating.

The president this week is talking up his deficit reduction plan with town hall meetings in Western states. He met with News 8 for a few minutes to explain why he thinks his plan is better than the deficit reduction plan pushed by Republicans in the House, and why he wants to pitch his plan hard in Texas.

The president said his mix of spending cuts and tax increases on the wealthy offer a balanced approach compared to the Republicans who want cuts in spending and taxes.

Apparently the President never heard of Sam Donaldson of ABC NEWS.
