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 countrys most Democratic cities.
Demonstrators held signs that said Broken Promises and interrupted his speech to protest AIDS funding and the stalled repeal of dont ask, dont 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 youre 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 dont focus on this election.
The dont ask, dont 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.
A Bronx cheer in Manhattan?
I assume you mean “Heart” disease. Perhaps you could correct your typo.
I’m talkin’ bad ‘bout chou, dawg.
Not impressed. They are whining that he is not liberal enough.
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.
Something to bring a smile to your face.
Heckled by DNC fundsters because they are racists.
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.
a typical didactic-”and for your homework tonight”..........ahahahahahhaha
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.
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.
The Kenyan also brought a nasty lightning storm to Manhattan with him, too.
A Baraken Promise?
Show her the pimp hand, Obama!
A Baraken Promise? They are complaining about Baraken Promises? What did they expect?
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.
His security in Manhattan is impossible to describe. If Moses AND Jesus came to NYC, they wouldn’t have more cops. It’s insane.
WHERE’S THE VIDEO???
Remember when Bush used to say folks dont want this or that. He meant democrats but he was too much of a gentleman to directly point the finger. Dont know if that was a good strategy...Uh huh, that was the Bush/Rove "new tone"...To not mention their fellow (progressive) travelers in the other party in a negative light...How'd that work for them?
Well, he has EVERYBODY pissed now. And, we all know his side produces more nuts.
“...but the people that potentially will take over will...”
obummer can’t quite bring himself to face the INEVITABLE.
hope there’s a video
“Barack Obama heckled in Manhattan”
Wow - how SWEET it is...
“Young lady”? That’s how you scold a 4-year-old girl.
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
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 theres 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.
Just looked on MSNBC’s front page for any mention of it and saw nothing.
i’m sure it will be on local news here in NYC tonight- Cuomo lies??? obama heckled??? 11-2 can’t get here fast enough...
“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.
This is an outright lie.

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.
Saw Jon Stewart on BOR...
Yeah, I saw that sophomoric-humor leftist. I enjoyed it when BOR talked about [paraphrase] the folks, the working folks, the millions of people who watch me that don't watch you. (HOORAY Bill!)
This tells me that the dems don’t have a clue about what’s about to hit them in November.
Ouch. The Boy Wonder isn’t used to that. Sorry I missed it. :-)
Is he good for anything else but a good heckle?
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!
