Woah! Obama Snaps After Brave Reporter Asks, “Why Do You Think You’re So Unpopular in Texas?” (Video)

Brad Watson– News Anchor and Hero

Barack Obama took his first hard question from a reporter yesterday. He didn’t handle it very well. He snapped at the reporter to “let me finish” at the end of the interview.

Brad Watson from News 8 in Dallas caught President Obama flat-footed when he asked,
“Why do you think you’re so unpopular in Texas?”

USA Today reported:

President Obama has troubles with voters in Texas, and, apparently, with interviewers from the Lone Star State as well.

“Let me finish my answers the next time we do an interview, all right?” Obama told reporter Brad Watson after an interview with WFAA-TV of Dallas, one of four interviews with local television stations at the White House on Monday.

The exchange is toward the end of the video.

At one point, Watson asked the president: “Why do you think you’re so unpopular in Texas?”

After some jousting about the size of his loss in Texas in 2008 — the president said it was “a few percentage points,” but it was more like 11 — Obama told his interviewer: “If what you’re telling me is that Texas is a conservative state, you’re absolutely right.”

You just gotta love Texas.
