You may remember Ed Henry as a former reporter from CNN who now works for Fox. Today he earned a Roger Ailes gold star in movement conservatism during Obama's Thursday presser with South Korea's Myung-Bak :

Fox News Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry experienced a tense moment with President Obama during a Thursday press conference. The President held a joint press conference with Lee Myung-Bak, President of South Korea. Ed Henry had the first question of the conference and asked Obama if he considered the alleged Iranian assassination plot to be "an act of war."
Henry decided to quote a Mitt Romney statement from last week when asking for the President's plans to address Iran's alleged terror plot. Henry asked the President "what specific steps will you take to hold Iran accountable? Especially when Mitt Romney charged last week, quote, 'If you do not want America to be the strongest nation on Earth, I am not your President. You have that president today.'"
Obama paused and answered, "Well I did not know you were the spokesman for Romney," and smiled down at Henry.
Henry discussed the exchange with Megyn Kelly on her show and defended his decision to quote Mitt Romney in his question. “I was trying to put it in the broader context of not just Mitt Romney, but there are a lot of Republicans out there who would charge that this president leads from behind," he said. "...Instead, he decided to go after me a little bit."
He went on and complained to Megyn Kelly. But shilling for Mitt Romney's position on the situation and quoting him because he's the Fox News preferred choice as GOP 2012 presidential challenger is pretty pathetic.
President Barack Obama called out Fox News' Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry Thursday as a "spokesperson for Mitt Romney."
