Reporter Asks Obama – Which Bothers You More Being Called an ‘Imperial President’ or a ‘Do-Nothing’ President?

For all of you crazy right-wingers who think the media is ALWAYS too easy on President Obama – boy do we have some red meat for you today! (By the by – I too am one of those “crazy right-wingers” so don’t get your panties in a bunch.)

President Obama was speaking to reporters at the US –Africa Leaders Summit when Jon Karl of ABC News made our day.

This is what Karl had the audacity to ask President Obama, right in front of EVERYONE!


“When you were running for President you said, “The biggest problems we’re facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the Executive Branch and not go through Congress at all, and that’s what I intend to reverse. So my question to you, has Congress’s inability to do anything significant given you a green light to push the limits of executive power, even a duty to do so, or put another way, does it bother you more to be accused of being an imperial president, pushing those limits, or to be accused of being a do-nothing president who couldn’t get anything done because you faced a dysfunctional Congress?”
