Could Ed Henry show any more disdain for the President?

i awakened this AM thinking that Henry had this angry, impatient look all through the speech. I can't believe that he was elected President of this organization for the next year: it is really going to gall him to have to introduce him next year and could barely hide his displeasure in having to escort President and Mrs. Obama from the stage.

I saw that he, appropriately, was now with FOX. Did he lose his job at CNN b/c of his apparent and uneditied hostility towards the present administration? I don't watch CNN anymore so may have missed the dynamics.

1. i don't think you have to worry

I think Ed Henry is a big suck-up just like the rest of them, despite the look on his face. Maybe he had a tummy ache or something.

2. I'm not 'worried' about anything here,

Henry's hostility was apparent during the 2008 campaign and was one of the major reasons why I stopped watching CNN.

5. At least Bush II was the President at the time...

and although Gregory is the inside-Rethug we always knew him to be, he doesn't have that 'look' that Henry had last night...it reminded me of the old program "Divorce Court" - you had to be in the same room with your adversary, but you didn't have to like it.
At the podium last night, he didn't look scornful the way Mr. Henry did...

8. True that

I was only wanting to point out that dances with rove in his own way was disrespectful. Kept going on while the mike was still on about the cord or whatever he was having to straddle when no one else let it seem to bother them. Reminded me of a petulant child

10. right you are...well, he's a real dick

and he's got that mindset of men who possess large physical presence: You have to make allowances for my size and 'manliness', or you had best better get out of the way." That microphone business is typical of those fellows...it is dopey.

7. I didn't know his history, but was not impressed.

I thought his choice of words...something about this term seemed like he wanted to say "only" term. I thought i might just be biased against a Fox "reporter".

11. Ed Henry has always been all about Ed Henry...

Here's a direct quote from him on his reasons for asking what he does and the way he does it:

"I was heading into this event with the same strategy: make news on something unexpected (I won't tell you which topics I was working on cause it would ruin the surprise for a future presser or interview with the president)."

http://articles.cnn.com/2009-03-25/politics/henry.obama_1_aig-president-obama-question?_s=PMOLITICS

Note the "MAKE NEWS" instead of report the news. He did "make news" but not the way he wanted, he was called out right after he wrote the linked article on CNN.

He was, is and always will be a gigantic POS, imo.
