Making a second fundraising appearance for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Cali) on Tuesday evening, President Barack Obama got heckled by a protester demanding quicker action on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. And then he heckled the heckler.
From the pool report:
Speaking to a larger crowd and this time from teleprompters, Obama was in the middle of, as he called it, a trip down memory lane about the economy, when a man yelled out: “Move faster on ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’”
“It’s good to see ya,” Obama said to the man as the crowd started to boo, and the man continued to shout something your pooler couldn’t hear amid all the noise.
“I have to say, you know what? I saw this guy down in LA,” Obama said. (POTUS was also heckled about DADT at the last Boxer fundraiser he headlined in Los Angeles.)
“Two points I want to make,” Obama said of the heckler, “he really should like buy a ticket to, if he wants to demonstrate, buy a ticket to a guy who doesn’t support his point of view.”
