"Love the way he swatted down that heckler"

Journalists should be "swatted down" for asking a question of a President who refuses to answer questions after making a decree?

Just as we have people in autocracies who prefer freedom we have people in free nations who prefer a autocrat.

YES WE CAN!President Obama has chosen to take a courageous step in immigration reform. Immigrant groups, especially Hispanics, are validated in their continued support of the President. Love the way he swatted down that heckler! Give ‘em hell, Barry!
