Neil Munro of The Daily Caller: Here's The Only Clean Audio Of What He Heckled At President Obama [EXCLUSIVE]

Munro interrupting President Obama in the Rose Garden
After reading Megan Carpentier's Raw Story article about our experience in the White House Rose Garden standing next to Daily Caller heckler Neil Munro, we decided to go back and listen to the audio we were recording on our iPhone of the event, and compare it to other news outlets' audio.

Shockingly, it's cleaner than anything else we've found online -- clearer than the White House's audio or even NPR's (because, of course, their microphones were trained at President Obama and we happened to be next to Munro).

If you want to hear what Munro actually said (with his, ahem, immigrant Irish accent), take a listen. It's in three chunks, with brief silences between. The first segment is when Munro first jumps in, the second is when Obama answers him (and Munro tries to interrupt again), and the third is right after the president finishes his remarks and Munro yells out again.

The Evil Ways Immigrants Destroyed America When Reagan Granted Them Amnesty

There has been the expected nuclear hay made by Republicans out of President Obama's decision to give temporary relief to the children of undocumented immigrants in lieu of the D.R.E.A.M. Act passing. We were in the Rose Garden to witness the first attack personally, as an Irish immigrant, of all people, wouldn't allow the president to even finish his statement on his planned immigrant executive order.

If there is one thing conservatives love more than tax breaks it's Ronald Reagan, and you can't look at Reagan's history without remembering the Simpson-Mazzoli Immigration Reform and Control Act, which granted the dreaded "a word" (amnesty, that is, something Obama pointedly said his plan will not do). But a lot of conservatives try to forget their beloved Reagan signed amnesty into law and said, "I believe in the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots and who have lived here, even though some time back they may have entered illegally."

Whatever happened to the three million people Reagan granted amnesty to a quarter century ago? Did they succeed in ripping the nation to shreds, destroying American industry, and murdering gringos left and right, much as Reagan's disciples predict would happen if such a bill would become law (or even Obama's much more tepid stopgap executive order) today?

Actually, quite the opposite.
