The President of the United States just looked to his left and shushed someone: "Guys, I can hear you over here."—

Remember back in 2008 when Obama’s most lauded qualification for the presidency was his “first-class temperament”? Well, as the light-worker never hesitates to remind everyone, he won. Twice. And now there’s no need to keep up that whole temperament charade.
The prickly schoolmarm interrupted his oh-so-laser-like focus on the fiscal cliff to shush people during his Friday evening statement.
How can you tell the president is cranky? "Guys, I can hear you over here," zinging the staff on national television…yowsa!—

Obama likes to call people out in the middle of important speeches way too often… "Guys I can hear you back there."—

Uh oh. Someone’s about to spend afternoons in detention!
"Guys, I can hear you over there," says Obama during briefing, sounding very much like a pissed-off college prof.—

So, who was the target of the presidential “STFU,” complete with signature death stare?
Obama, mid press statement: "Guys, I can hear you over here." Who was he talking to?—

Are the lapdogs on their way to the doghouse?
Ha! I think a reporter just ticked off the president by talking too loudly off to the side. Obama: "Guys, I can hear you over here …"—

"Guys, I can hear you over here." Who did Obama scold? It was in the direction of where the CNN crew was standing.—

White House reporters insist it was those other guys — the ones working the cameras.
But per the White House, it never happened at all.
It appears the White House left the nugget of "Guys, I can hear you over here." out of POTUS' transcript.—
