That ass was actually on the phone in the front row during a press conference at the white house?

Unbelievable.

He didn't give Gibbs the phone. The reporter got up and left the room.

First of all there is no "freedom of speach(sic)" that protects rude behavior and secondly, any moron who talks on their cell phone during a Presidential news conference deserves to not to have his phone taken away but to be kicked out - permanently. Isn't that what voice mail is for???

I am not a fan of Robert GIbbs, but this is a total lack of respect and that reporter should never be allowed back in the press room ever.

i so agree with this -- it's really rude to be on the phone when you're with other people.
here the other people are White House staffmembers.

what in the world is this guy thinking -- that he could talk over the guy running the press conference?
hope he loses his job -- and sets an example for the rude constant phone talkers across the nation.

People -- you don't need to be in Constant Communication with whomever.
Whatever happened to Be Here Now?

Easily the stupidest Press Secretary in the history of the White House. Anytime the media dares to ask him an even remotely close to pressing question he never has the answer and always refers them to someone else. Had this douchebag been Bush's Press Sec. the media would have demanded he stepped down after one hour on the job. Only makes sense though since we have the stupidest President in the history of the nation currently in the White House.
