President Obama was heckled by two men in his speech in Austin today, in which he discussed the economy and again pushed for immigration reform.
About a half hour into the speech, two men stood in their seats near the front of Austin's Paramount Theater and began shouting.
At first, the President spoke over them, but later said to them, "sit down guys, I'm almost done.'
The men continued shouting, and the audience tried to shout them down, and two Austin Police Officers emerged, but the President asked that they not be removed, and he promised to speak to them later, which he apparently did.
It was unclear what the men were heckling the President about.
The speech was the standard Obama stump speech, saying that the economy is improving, and cited a U.T. Austin student who wrote to the President about the struggles of her and her parents.
"I like to get out of Washington to remember and connect with your stories so that you know what I am trying to do every single day based on that experience," Obama said, prompted a woman in the audience to yell 'thank you!'
Earlier in the day, the President told a group of 1%ers at a posh fundraiser where admission tickets cost up to $32,000 that he cares about the middle class, and he is concerned that the wealthy, like the people in the room, are getting too many of the benefits of the current economic recovery.
Republicans pointed out that one person who was not preset for the speech was Wendy Davis, the Democratic candidate for governor.

Community organizing doesn’t always produce an organized community. (Confucius)
A photo op?
Franklin’s is great BBQ, but no need to wait that long. You can get the same BBQ from Labarbecue (LuAnn Mueller) 6th/Waller or John Mueller BBQ 6th/Perdenales (third gen BBQ’ers). Aaron Franklin learned from the Muellers.
B-but, but, but, he doesn’t like photo ops!
Considering it was a bailout JP Morgan card, Franklin's should have insisted on cash.
Either he threatened them with IRS action.... or they were just really, really cute.
Did he tip?
How does it compare to Blacks BBQ?
he cares about the middle class, and he is concerned that the wealthy

Obama is on the Campaign Trail
Probably a couple of gay dudes. Obama sure as hell doesn’t want them arrested.
Everyone in that theatre would drink Jim Jones cool aid if Obama offered it to them.

I hope they were all 50,000 illegal aliens...
Max out that puppy, Barry...
I’ve not had Franklin’s. But every time I get near Elgin I stop at Southside Market, on the north side of town, and get some Elgin Hot Sausage. Got some the other day and brought a few pounds home. It’s in the freezer. I feel good knowing it’s in there.
I'd sure like to see him out in the Nebraska corn fields in October and November........Really, I would!
Wow! Were they brothers?
This 6 minute video may help even the dullest no/low info morons understand what they have done. (Then again...) With assists from academia, liberal Jews (no, I am NOT an anti-semite but support Israel’s right to exist) and a few others, the 47% no/low info voters hooked on free chit put a MAD MAN in the Spite House! And if you thought the last 6 years were insane, wait until next year!
