Obama Is Upset That American Press Does Not Bow Down & Thank Him… Even Though American Press Does Bow Down & Thank Him

Poor, President Obama.
The ObaMessiah is upset that American reporters do not bow down and thank him.

But wait… American reporters do bow down and thank him.

So what exactly is President Obama whining about?
NewsBusters reported:

President Barack Obama is peeved with the American press. They never say “thank you,” he whined to journalists in Japan on Monday.

According to the pool report from the press conference, one reporter said “Thank you, Mr. President.” Someone said the reporter was Australian.

“I knew it must have been an Australian because my folks never say thank you,” Obama said.

At that, the entire American pool said in unison — admittedly with a bit of sarcasm — “Thank you, Mr. President.”

PM Gillard could be heard chiming in, “There are a few cheeky Australians here.”

At first glance, Obama’s comment reeks of arrogance. He seems to think that press access is a privilege, not a right, and that he is under no obligation to even speak to reporters.

Maybe Obama wants the Obama-loving press to start licking his boots.
