Somehow, with each passing day, Barack Obama appears less presidential while Mitt Romney appears more so.
Today provided perhaps the most stark illustration yet, as Obama publicly lost his temper and descended into argument with a reporter. While announcing his unilateral decision to effectively impose “Dream Act” immunity to illegal immigrants via executive order, a reporter pressed Obama on whether he was favoring foreign citizens over American citizens when it came to jobs. Scowling and angrily pointing his finger, Obama engaged in a back-and-forth hostile argument, interrupting himself multiple times to stutter, “Not while I’m speaking,” and “I didn’t ask for an argument, I’m answering your question.”
The spectacle can be seen here.
Perhaps Obama should simply stop speaking to the press on Fridays – recall last week’s “the private sector is doing fine” gaffe.
