THE PRESIDENT: Effective immediately, the Department of Homeland Security is taking steps to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people. Over the next few months, eligible individuals who do not present a risk to national security or public safety will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work authorization.

Now, letís be clear Ė this is not amnesty, this is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. Itís not a permanent fix. This is a temporary stopgap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people. It is Ė

Q (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: Ė the right thing to do.

MUNRO: What about American workers who are unemployed while you employ foreigners?
THE PRESIDENT: Excuse me, sir. Itís not time for questions, sir.

MUNRO: No, you have to take questions.

THE PRESIDENT: Not while Iím speaking.

Precisely because this is temporary, Congress needs to act. There is still time for Congress to pass the DREAM Act this year, because these kids deserve to plan their lives in more than two-year increments. And we still need to pass comprehensive immigration reform that addresses our 21st century economic and security needs Ė reform that gives our farmers and ranchers certainty about the workers that theyíll have. Reform that gives our science and technology sectors certainty that the young people who come here to earn their PhDs wonít be forced to leave and start new businesses in other countries. Reform that continues to improve our border security, and lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.

Just six years ago, the unlikely trio of John McCain, Ted Kennedy and President Bush came together to champion this kind of reform. And I was proud to join 23 Republicans in voting for it. So thereís no reason that we canít come together and get this done.

And as long as Iím President, I will not give up on this issue, not only because itís the right thing to do for our economy Ė and CEOs agree with me Ė not just because itís the right thing to do for our security, but because itís the right thing to do, period. And I believe that, eventually, enough Republicans in Congress will come around to that view as well.

And I believe that itís the right thing to do because Iíve been with groups of young people who work so hard and speak with so much heart about whatís best in America, even though I knew some of them must have lived under the fear of deportation. I know some have come forward, at great risks to themselves and their futures, in hopes it would spur the rest of us to live up to our own most cherished values. And Iíve seen the stories of Americans in schools and churches and communities across the country who stood up for them and rallied behind them, and pushed us to give them a better path and freedom from fear Ėbecause we are a better nation than one that expels innocent young kids.

And the answer to your question, sir Ė and the next time Iíd prefer you let me finish my statements before you ask that question Ė is this is the right thing to do for the American people Ė

MUNRO: (Inaudible.)

THE PRESIDENT: I didnít ask for an argument. Iím answering your question.

MUNRO: Iíd like to Ė

The Daily Caller decided to get themselves a little publicity today by pulling a Joe Wilson and heckling the President of the United States. The heckler gets totally owned, but right still martyrs him, because he, ďasked the tough questions, and stood up to Obama.Ē

Munro claimed that he wasnít trying to heckle the president, ďI always go to the White House prepared with questions for our president. I timed the question believing the president was closing his remarks, because naturally I have no intention of interrupting the President of the United States. I know he rarely takes questions before walking away from the podium. When I asked the question as he finished his speech, he turned his back on the many reporters, and walked away while I and at least one other reporter asked questions.Ē

His publisher, Neil Patel also stated that there was no disrespect intended, ďThe President today announced a very controversial policy and does not want to answer tough questions about it. Neil Munro is a veteran Washington reporter who today tried his best to time his question to be first as the President was wrapping up his remarks. He in no way meant to heckle the President of the United States.Ē

The problem with The Daily Callerís excuse is that their reporter interrupts the president at 4:38 of his nine minute long remarks. Are we really supposed to believe that Mr. Munro simply guessed wrong when the president gave no indication that he was finished?

It looks like The Daily Caller might pay a heavy price for their latest stunt. After Munro and The Daily Caller were rebuked by the White House Correspondents Association, there is increasing chatter that they may lose their status as a member of the White House press pool.

None of this has stopped the right from martyring Munro, but the truth is that the reporter didnít best the president during the exchange. His question was partisan and dense. It was easily swatted away by Obama. Even worse, Munro was embarrassed in front of the whole world as the president admonished Munro like an unruly school child who wasnít paying attention in class.

The way the right is treating Neil Munro highlights one of the great contradictions in right wing attitudes towards the president. They canít decide whether Obama is an evil and oppressive socialist dictator, or incompetent man who isnít up to the job of being president. A president canít be both incompetent and an oppressor, so which is it?

The fact of the matter is The Daily Caller got their publicity, but Munro got owned by Obama. Consider today a double loss for the right. The president has seized the narrative with his immigration announcement, and he showed the world that he will not tolerate the rightís disrespect of the office that he holds.

When the best thing the right can point to is that a reporter from a conservative website got schooled by Obama, itís been a really bad day.

As all this is going on, Mitt Romney is sitting on a bus somewhere wondering why no one is paying attention to him.

Yes, indeed. It was a very good day to be the President of the United States, Barack Obama.

Misery on the Right As They Contemplate Mitt Romney Nose Plugs

Did you watch the press conference ? I did . The question was well asked and not answered, Obama had paused as if finished speaking. To justify 8000,000 free rides is sad and pathetic, are they voters, will this help Obama swing the Latino vote he is losing ? Will they swamp the already over extended free medical programs, will they get food stamps, will they take 800,000 jobs from Americans looking for work since it is mandatory they have jobs, what do you think ? Why pull this stunt now, oh I know an election year, lets pull out all the big guns and immigration is a touchy subject, one Obama has hid from, will this help him ? NO

I watched it, the heckler was rude, Obama asked him to wait and he kept interrupting, the heckler made a fool out of himself,.
who cares if they are old enough to vote. the article explains itself,if you will read it. no it will not take jobs from America because it is not a full declaration of citizenship, it is temporary, many presidents have declared the same thing Obama is doing.
I am proud to call him My President.bloomberg poll puts Obama ahead by 13 points

67 %of the people approved,69% independents approved

They have no right here, i applaude the reported he had the guts to ask a question Obama wanted to avoid and it was obvious Obama was seeing votes in his answer. The Dream Act is more the Nightmare Act for the Americal working force and those struggling to get work and support families

At least Fox isn't in the White House back pocket and afraid to report the true news, NBC MSNBC and the likes are ignoring the issues, 800,000 free passes, 800,000 more jobs Americans won't get and with the numbers once again bad on employment this week, not a good sign for legal Americans, but lets try to please the Latino voters, remember it is an election year and Obammy is desperate, especially since the Latino vote was swinging away from him.
As far as your topic heading, the reporter ended up with more positive publicity than Obammy, his question was right on the money and Obammy didn't want to answer , can you say he saw visions of votes floating away..

When you post bias blogs and opinions from Dem. backed sites it isn't considered credible, there are thousands of them on the net. I post from an accredited news source. Not my fault they report the truth and dig deeper into this corruption, I call that good journalism. On many interviews they have both Dem. and Rebup. contributors presenting both sides, something the back pocket networks fail to do. They don't sugar coat the financial disaster this country is in , nor do they ignore important issues for fear of insulting the White House. What Fox reports is news as it is happening and the real way it is , not just how the White House wants it told.

Don't have to find anything they are rated the #1 news site above all others, check out the polls. As far as Snopes goes it isn't always accurate, nor is Fact Check, they are like Wiki, only peoples input and not reliable. Read their disclaimers.

New poll: Fox News no longer credible news source | MGx ...
mgx.com/blogs/.../new-poll-fox-news-no-longer-credible-news-sourc!! and they are totally republican they do not have both parties on in fair debate the caster out shout everyone fox is not fair and balanced

no they are not rated number one news source plus they have dropped in entertainment popularity o


America is waking up!!
New poll: Fox News no longer credible news source
Screen shot 2011-01-19 at 3.19.37 PM

Public Policy Polling has found that Fox News credibility has sunk by 16 points from last year. Demographically, younger viewers, 18to 29, have the highest level of distrust for Fox 52% compared to 48% of viewers over 65 who do trust the network.

At the top of the list is NPR.


-A year ago a plurality of Americans said they trusted Fox News. Now a plurality of them donít. Conservatives havenít moved all that much- 75% said they trusted it last year and 72% still do this time around. But moderates and liberals have both had a strong increase in their level of distrust for the network- a 12 point gain from 48% to 60% for moderates and a 16 point gain from 66% to 82% for liberals. Voters between left and center tend to be more trusting of the media across the board, which is why a fair number of them were still rating Fox favorably even a year ago at this time. But it looks like with a lot of those folks it has finally crossed the line to being too political to trust.

Only NBC still retains viewer confidence for factual reporting.

-Democrats trust everything but Fox. Republicans donít trust anything but Fox. And independents donít trust much of anything. For Democrats 73% trust PBS, 64% NBC, 61% CBS, 60% CNN, 56% ABC, and 22% Fox. For Republicans 67% trust Fox, 29% PBS, 22% CNN, 21% NBC, 17% ABC, and 15% CBS. For independents 44% trust PBS, 36% Fox, 34% CNN, 33% NBC, 27% CBS, and 26% ABC.
