How did Kyle Murphy Clark get past the Praetorian Guard?

<i>FACEPALM/UPDATE (10/29/12 5:35 p.m.): Goodness gracious, where did “Murphy” come from? The reporter’s name is Kyle Clark, not Kyle Murphy. Must not have had enough coffee before posting this on Saturday.</i>


Barack Obama hasn’t had an honest-to-goodness press conference with the White House press corps since April. Helen Thomas is gone, but a fair number of them are still on his side.

Instead he has deigned to be interviewed by such tough critics as Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, David Letterman, the ladies on The View, MTV, and a few ridiculous local radio shows.

They’re all good at what they do, but they are there to entertain, not to hold a president’s feet to the fire and insist on answers to tough questions.

So how in the heck did Kyle Murphy Clark slip past the guard? To be sure, he was only doing the job any good reporter should do: recognize the issues of the day and ask the unresolved questions. But that is exactly what Obama and his people have avoided the past six months in every forum apart from the debates.

Murphy Clark asks a tough question on Benghazi, then follows up with a more direct question when Obama said many words but did not answer. Recognizing that Murphy was actually being a reporter and not just another entertainer Obama began to filibuster. Murphy only got in a few questions, but he made his questions worth it.

Watch the whole thing:

    He’s a human being who can’t make every decision perfect. God took good people to heaven w/Him but you can’t blame the President for ev. mishap. George W. Bush knew about 9/11 w/a memo 3 months earlier? Other Presidents of both parties had major mishaps. Do you want his job? I don’t think so! The past is over and all we can do is hope to keep our citizens/solders SAFE for the future! I guess killing Bin Laden doesn’t matter?!?! Saving GM & millions of jobs, doesn’t that count? Getting back monies lent to banks/Wall Street w/interest….doesn’t that count? Getting medical coverage for ALL human beings, doesn’t that matter? Saving Medicare from voucher system, trying to tax the rich and ‘save the Middle Class’ leaving only the very rich and the very poor….doesn’t that matter? Romney ships jobs to China and other countries n puts his millions into the Kaman & Bermuda Islands! WOW, does he really care about us? NO, he just wants the prestige of the White House! He should stay retired at his beach front home and not put our country at risk for any future bombshells….like wars and a major depression. He and the “Donald” deserve each other! Come on Independents, “where are you” and pls clear you thinking and vote to keep our country safe and w/a slow but steady return of a great country & economy under President Obama’s leadership. Yes, he deserves another chance!!!!!!!

      Oh gee – why don’t you ask Ohio today how they feel about JEEP moving to China? This under your boy’s watch. And quit with the stupid nursing abbreviations. You look foolish – this isn’t a medical record.

      You realize that will all fall apart when China and Saudi Arabia call us on our debt.

      Barbara, I can’t vote for the President because he defends abortion. Whatever else he has done that may be good can’t erase his toleration of the destruction of innocent human life in the womb. Now, many will argue that Governor Romney won’t do much better because he isn’t the perfect candidate. Yet, he does not embrace the “everything goes” policy that the President does regarding abortion. President Obama tolerates all abortion. A President Romney would not. Barbara, please rethink your choice. Thank you.

    wow this is really heated…Let’s not forget what got us into these wars to begin with…NYC Washington, 3000 American’s dead in 1 day on American soil…ALL the flags waving … Clinton administration allowed these terrorists to be in this country… Intelligence lead President Bush to believe that there were weapons of mass destruction.. American’s wanted revenge … Our sons and daughters joined the armed forces as proof of this truth. OK so President Obama ( who I think is inept as a commander and chief , and that is being nice but is not the point) also went on the advice of the intelligence …. Or did he?! Something went terribly wrong and that is evident in the facts…Now, some may say we are only into these “wars” because of greed on oil….a look back in history shows that Muslims have been the core of Many Many religious wars around the world (interjection! I have Muslim friends who will deny this yet admit it is found in the Koran and by some is interpreted that way)> it is OK to lie, cheat steal and KILL anyone who will not convert . hmmm that sounds peaceful.NOT We will NEVER end or extinguish the Muslims who follow that mindset…To Kill one terrorist is dumb…by the time we do that another has taken his place as “leader” and the one we kill is more than happy to die for their beliefs. The best we can hope to do is keep them from harming Americans where ever they may be..
