Obama interrupted: Disrespectful or latest in 'era of incivility'?

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama's angry response to a reporter who interrupted his Rose Garden remarks Friday was the latest salvo in what some political experts see as an era of incivility.

Neil Munro, a White House correspondent for the Washington-based website The Daily Caller, asked the president about his administration's dramatic policy shift on immigration while the president was in the middle of delivering prepared remarks.

    The GOP wrote the book on incivility. Look how Cheney conducted himself.

    There are usually times for questions. Why was there a need for this "person" to shout out a question at the wrong time? It seems that this guy is just acting wrongly. It may be that he was following one of those conservatives that don't care about the whole truth but want enough to shame the people they target. We need to have a more civil tone which won't happend until people like Limbaugh is off the air.

    It was total disrespect. But what do you expect when the example has already been set by members of our own congress shouting out "You lie" during a presidential speech. Our elected officials do not even have enough restraint to control themselves out of respect for the office, but instead get treated like a hero for being a jerk.
