THE SUDDENLY-LESS-DEFERENTIAL PRESS: Daily Caller’s Neil Munro interrupts President Obama; ‘is this right thing to do for American workers?’ I like this: “POTUS interruptus.” We are all Sam Donaldson now!

UPDATE: Video: Obama Angry At Being Questioned.

ANOTHER UPDATE: “Amnesty” Is A Spanish Word That Means “Desperate.”

MORE: “Actually, Mr. President, you did ask for an argument.”

And reader Jeff Johnson writes: “So Obama is pushing for Amnesty at that same time that Eric Holder is trying to stop Florida from purging its voter rolls of non-citizens. Coincidence? I think not!”

MORE STILL: Tucker Carlson: “I don’t remember Diane Sawyer scolding her colleague Sam Donaldson for heckling President Reagan. And she shouldn’t have. A reporter’s job is to ask questions and get answers. Our job is to find out what the federal government is up to. Politicians often don’t want to tell us. A good reporter gets the story. We’re proud of Neil Munro.”

You should be. He’s not a lapdog. And it’s rather late for the White House to try to stand on Presidential dignity.

Plus, Prof. Jacobson points out that it really is news when Obama gets a tough question from the press.
