NBCLA Excerpt: A 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.

DJMS 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.
