Meghan McCain pronounces presidential heckling ‘astounding’ and ‘disrespectful’

This evening, Meghan McCain took time out of her busy schedule (i.e., inflicting “America, You Sexy Bitch” on the rest of us) to express horror at the heckling that took place during President Obama’s immigration amnesty announcement.

As usual, the left’s favorite “conservative” provoked several responses, including an effort to provide a much-needed history lesson to a girl who continues to give Ivy League degrees a bad name.

@McCainBlogette Too much time at MSNBC is getting to you. GWB, Clinton and Reagan were all heckled by the press. Look up Iran Contra clips

@McCainBlogette You should have paid attention during any of the previous administrations…

@McCainBlogette @d_cd_c. like when Helen Thomas heckled President Bush? Culture is unfortunately encouraging a politicized press.

@McCainBlogette Since the press isn't actual press anymore. It's sensationalist reporting made to sell ad space.

Several folks spoke up about the president’s own apparent lack of respect for his office or for the rule of law:

@McCainBlogette it happens since when he takes matters into his own hands like this! No coordination with either house, he just enacts? wth?

@sharm629 So is the president's respect for the law of the land. @McCainBlogette @FoxNews

@McCainBlogette For a while now, we're down to respecting the office, NOT it's current occupant. He has earned disrespect and contempt.

@McCainBlogette It's called freedom of speech and he is no president. He is a dictator going against the wishes of the American people.

Another noted the question-asking vs. shoe throwing double-standard:

@McCainBlogette I'm sure you were just as outraged and pissed when a reporter threw a shoe at President Bush.

Unsurprisingly, Meghan hasn’t gotten around to answering that one yet. She did, however, finish issuing her official decree about when it is and isn’t acceptable to speak directly to a politician:

Any politician or candidate should be allowed to finish their statement without being heckled by press. Ask questions when the time comes!

— Meghan McCain (@MeghanMcCain) June 15, 2012

Of course, there is the pesky little fact that, when it comes to Obama, the time for questions seems to be never.

That’s immaterial, of course; the important point is that Meghan McCain has set forth her edict about press decorum. Clearly we had better start living up to it!
