Obama Shuts Down Helen Thomas

I have to admit, I do get a sense of satisfaction from anyone blowing off Helen Thomas, even if it is Obama.  While Obama was answering a question posed by another reporter about Iran, she tried to interupt to find out why he wouldn’t release photos of our Interrogation of prisoners.  Obama basically tells her to shut up, and then ignores her by not asking her a question.

Credit where credit is due.  It is not often that I agree with Obama on anything, but in this case, he put Helen Thomas in her place.

First President Bush, now President Obama. Who would have guessed that seeing Helen Thomas for the ignorant gasbag she is would be the issue to bring the two parties together?

I remember the hubub when O’Reilly called the old bat “the Wicked Witch of the East” and did an impersonation. Also, when Ari or W attempted to put the old bat in her place, they got bashed for it…nothing about Obama telling her to shut up anywhere…the silence is deafening!

Nice to see O did something right.

The old bat and some of her drive-by cronies were making Gibbs sweat today…this is fun to watch!
