    Default Bloomberg reporter's smart alec question

    Nasty and ill-mannered.

    At the joint press conference by Obama and Yingluck, the last question was allotted to a US financial newspaper lady reporter.

    The part of the question, specifically directed at Yingluck was a weird query about whether the fiscal cliff negotiation makes China’s government look attractive by comparison.

    Obama knew what the lady reporter was up to (to purposely embarrass Yingluck who was not fluent in English and maybe to show that she did not have in-depth knowledge of US financial issues ) and he said so in his reply; helping Yingluck to deal with part of the answer.
