reporter for a small newspaper was forcibly removed from a press
area near Air Force One shortly before President Barack Obama
arrived at Los Angeles International Airport to depart California
early Thursday. Airport security officers carried the woman away by
the feet and arms as she protested her removal: click here.
Commentary: The reporter, a Roman
Catholic, wanted to get a letter to Obama that was asking
him to uphold traditional marriage. She would not let a staffer
take it for her.
Her religion should not have mattered. But,
she should not have been using her reporter credentials in the
manner that she was using them. This type of thing could make it
tougher on reporters.
It amazes me that anyone still
believes that Obama can be reasoned with. The man is a puppet for
the powers behind his party.
