Heckler interrupts Obama health pitch
The Washington Times ^ | 17 Sep | Matthew Mosk

Posted on 09/17/2009 3:38:38 PM PDT by chuck_the_tv_out

A heckler was escorted by uniformed officers from President Obama’s speech to students at the University of Maryland College Park on Thursday after he briefly interrupted the president’s defense of his health care program.

The young man, wearing a grey polo shirt and a beret, began yelling from his second-row seat at the university’s cavernous basketball arena.

“Obama you’re a liar. Obama, your health care kills children. Abortion is murder,” he yelled.

As the man was being escorted out, another man in the crowd grabbed his beret and tossed it, earning himself a police escort out of the arena.

The heckler drew immediate boos from those seated around him and then from a boisterous and supportive crowd, who gave the president repeated ovations. Some threw cups or crumpled paper bags at the hecker. Mr. Obama briefly paused from his remarks to ask, “What’s going on?” But he quickly resumed his prepared remarks.

The crowd roared as three uniformed officers led the man from his seat, up the arena steps, and out Gate 125.

The speech came during a sustained public relations blitz by Mr. Obama designed both to sell his plan to the American public and to put pressure on Congress to pass it.

The White House estimated the crowd at 15,000.

As part of that effort, the White House on Thursday tried to emphasize the bipartisan nature of his approach, even though the proposals being considered by a number of House and Senate committees have so far failed to attract a single Republican vote.

Thank God Specter is officially a democrat now, or he'd have voted for it.

I forgot his name for a minute, so I just searched famlis.com for republican turncoat and he's the top result.

What the heckler said TOTALLY sounds like a democrat in disguise.

Good point. A bit incoherant for a real conservative.

“The White House estimated the crowd at 15,000.”

Sure. *SNORT*

Funny how a planted audience of 15,000 gets coverage and the MILLIONS that showed up last weekend on his DOORSTEP are basically ignored! Grrrrrr!

The heckler was correct. Obama is a liar, he has no health care plan.

Agreed. Obama's "bump" last week was primarily due to the controversy over Wilson's outburst.

There are plenty of people willing to risk a disorderly conduct charge, when they already have a criminal record. You can expect more of this.

When President Jimmah Carter got wee-weed-up about this thing or that, he could always pound a 6-pack of Billy Beer. Is that anywhere near as effective as smoking or snorting something that Barry likes to do???

Here's another great slide show (over 100 images) of this rally and protesters in Washington, DC - plus a video of a disabled Marine giving an asswhoopen to a congresscrreep.


Right in the nation's capitol.

So very proud of these Patriots.

By the way, I didn't see much main stream media coverage of this - did you?

Wonder why?

Those who have visited Washington, DC can appreciate the huge size of this marvelous rally.

Way to go Patriots - Great Rally!

I know I am. I refuse to remain silent any longer. Just look at the results we're getting in just the last few weeks. We have to speak out, and build on the progress we have made. Glenn Beck, we've got your 6 o'clock!

Yeah, I can't imagine why either. It's 100% on the money.

Thanks for the link to the great pics from Saturday’s DC rally. I was there, just got home last night. It was the most awe-inspiring event I have ever had the honor of being a part of. I hope someone compiles all the photos and videos, I’d like to buy a copy of it! I’ve seen so many great ones, and even being there, I missed alot. We mostly stood near the front on the right side-—too far away from the port-o-potties, we found out too late....

I doubt a conservative would attend an event
like this with the intention to heckle without
his backup peeps - “town hall” types.

This was a plant.

I doubt a conservative COULD attend an event like this, as Hussein is careful to pick who’ll attent all of his events.

Why would the Dems want a plant to say that though? How does that work to Obama's favor? He's a baby killer and that's somehow a positive when heckled about it?
