Barack Obama heckled in Manhattan By: Carol E. Lee September 22, 2010 08:09 PM EDT

NEW YORK – President Barack Obama was heckled multiple times during his speech at a Democratic fundraiser in one of the country’s most Democratic cities.

Demonstrators held signs that said “Broken Promises” and interrupted his speech to protest AIDS funding and the stalled repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” the policy banning gays from serving openly in the military that Obama has promised to lift.

Obama showed a flash of irritation after he was forced repeatedly off his prepared remarks. “We listened to you, we heard your point,” he told the “young lady” who continued shouting at him about AIDS funding. “This is not the time or the place to do what you’re talking about.”

Obama also tried to make the most of the moment by pointing out that Republicans would be further away from the protestors on both of the issues they were complaining about.

His administration has increased AIDS funding, he said, but “the people that potentially will take over will cut AIDS funding if we don’t focus on this election.”

The “don’t ask, don’t tell” protest came moments later, as Obama began talking about how incomes for the middle class fell by 5 percent – a statement he had to repeat twice.

The president pointed out that this week Senate Republicans blocked Democrats’

What? He increased AIDS funding? Does he mean research dollars? They already get twice as much as heard disease - something that kill 100X more people.

I assume you mean “Heart” disease. Perhaps you could correct your typo.

Sounds like he was being heckled by disappointed former supporters.
Still blaming and pointing his finger at those meany-bad republicans though.
What a sniveling whiner.

He hasn't seen heckled until November.

The radical left is mad he isn't more full tilt wacko.

Much of the rest of America is horrified already.

Too funny. Bambi can’t continue his radical leftward policies because even ordinary Dems were begging for a halt - and now the radical Dems are throwing rotten tomatoes at him because he didn’t give them the unicorn and the rainbow he had promised them. What’s a poor Muslim boy to do?

This may explain his heavy shift to Islam. He knows he can’t keep the radical left happy without going way beyond even the Harry Reid comfort zone. So maybe the thing to do is cultivate a foreign entity...

All I can say is THANK GOD it takes 60 votes to get something through the Senate. If it was a simple majority, we’d be completely sunk after these two years.

Heckled by leftist aholes because the Commie in Chief is not quite enough like Stalin or Hitler, both of whom were leftists who persecuted homosexuals, by the way.

Can’t imagine why NYC is in the shole it is in with leftist clowns like this.

Wait until the far left takes a page out of the Tea Party manual a starts putting the hurt on Democrats at town meetings and rallies. Compared to the uncouth behavior of leftists, the Tea Party folks will appear as if they’ve gone to finishing school.

It’s coming and there won’t be enough popcorn to pass around when it does.

"What’s a poor Muslim boy to do?"

I'm surprised he didn't assertively stomp his little sissy foot, issue a faggy fatwah upon the protesters, and then launch a laughably limp-wristed jihad at the naughty, naughty screechers. Whazzup wit ma homey? He beez da prezadizzle!

The problem with stories like this is that the MSM is starting to try and sell Baraq as “middle of the road” caught between the Tea Party and leftist zealots.

Remember when Bush used to say “folks” don’t want this or that. He meant democrats but he was too much of a gentleman to directly point the finger. Don’t know if that was a good strategy but I guess we’ll see if it works for Osama er...I mean Obama.

Barry becomes enraged if he has to stray from the teleprompter text that David Axelrod has carefully prepared for him. Barry likes the foolproof safety of not having to improvise.

Doesn't surprise me.

Just read the comments sections of articles posted on the New York Times website. It's amazing how deranged the American Left has become.

They seriously think Obama is a right-winger.

Obama showed a flash of irritation after he was forced repeatedly off his prepared remarks.

His response to the hecklers was to put his hand on his hip and start singing:

I'll tell you you can put me out on the street
Put me out with no shoes on my feet
But, put me out, put me out
Put me out of misery

Yeah, all your sickness I can suck it up
Throw it all at me I can shrug it off
There's one thing baby that I don't understand
You keep on telling me I ain't your kind of man

Ain't I rough enough, oh honey
Ain't I tough enough
Ain't I rich enough in love enough
Oh please

Its all falling apart for Obama.

Summers and Rahm leaving the administration. He gets dissed by one of his own supporters at a CNBC townhall meeting. Now this incident in the heart of NYC.

The left is starting to turn on Barry. The left is starting to realize what the right knew all along about Zero. That he is empty suit and a poser. He just simply isn’t up for the job of POTUS.

I have been thinking that Obama won’t run for reelection. I’m beginning to think that he even last out another year. Just like it was Republicans who told Nixon that he had to resign, it will be liberals who tell Barry that he has to take an early retirement.

“hope there’s a video”

Yes, where’s the video? I have no doubt that there were several people in the audience and news cameras capturing this. All of the footage is probably being erased quickly by Administration toadying journalists so that it is not seen by the public, much like any footage of Barry smoking or other countless gems the public has been deprived of.

“The problem with stories like this is that the MSM is starting to try and sell Baraq as “middle of the road” caught between the Tea Party and leftist zealots.”

Bingo! He is being presented as the sanity between those right wing crazies and leftwing moonbats. Saw Jon Stewart on BOR, plugging his book and Oct. 30 rally. He is portraying his rally as an opportunity for those “sane” middle grounders to get together. Seems like a ploy to win back to the Dems all those independents with Obama buyers remorse. It’s all about winning their votes between now and Nov.

That speaks volumes, doesn't it.

I'm sure working New Yorkers really appreciated the tie ups, traffic detours as much as the NYPD liked the extra duty guarding the mosque supporter in chief.

TV coverage just reverently shows footage of Barry at the U.N. talking about shoveling billions of U.S. tax dollars for obscure countries to fritter away. No mention of heckling. Don’t know why he had to show up in person to shovel the money. Guess the billion dollars of security for Barry to make the trip was worth it so he could have a photo op.

Absolutely agree, Bamster. Send him an email during a sporting event that he is watching so one of his underlings can ignore your concerns. Go Barry, go!
