Obama Heckled in Austin, Buys Barbecue for Customers at Franklin's
WOAI ^ | 7-10-14 | unattributed

Posted on 07/10/2014 3:10:13 PM PDT by smokingfrog

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.

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.

  The President pulled out a wad of $20 bills to pay for the $300 plus tab, and asked whether his JP Morgan Chase credit card is good.  He then put the cash back into his pocket and paid with his credit card.

Considering it was a bailout JP Morgan card, Franklin's should have insisted on cash.

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’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.

Lamberts is good, especially the brisket. The brisket is very moist, and has more "bark" than Blacks. The line is a schtick though...hire somebody to shut-up and cut some meat.

I second the motion regarding Muellers. It is as good or better without the pretense.

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!

Blacks is good...hell, better than most. I’ve only been there once though, but I really liked it.

I’ve been to the Muellers many many times though, mostly because I live closer. I’d give a slight edge to the Muellers (Louis Mueller in Taylor, and labarbecue and John Mueller in Austin). All three excel in brisket and beef ribs.

The point being, standing in line at Franklin’s makes sense only if you know nothing about the Muellers (who taught Franklin).

Elgin has two good BBQ places as I'm sure you know, Southside Market and Meyers..been to both, and both were good. The German immigrants who settled here sure established a great legacy.

I need to make it back to Luling one day. City Market BBQ is one of the best.

If President Obama wanted some really good BBQ he should have made the trip to Coopers in Llano...

Cooper’s customers with their Impeach Obama bumper stickers and loaded gun racks on their global warming causing SUVs would have shown the president some real Texas hospitality!!!

This is their ultimate objective and they insist that parents and schools have nothing to say about their methods of selection. They will line them up at school and select the juiciest ones for their special treatment. Any parent who objects or attempts to get in their way will be dealt with.

I really liked the Coopers in Llano when I was there. I’ve heard people say that the other Coopers are not so great.

It’s hard to find good bbq pulled pork in Texas. Carl’s on Hwy 290 in Cypress, NW of Houston, is awesome. The sauce sucks so we bring it home and put Memphis BBQ sauce on it.

It’s not really hard.....

Go to Llano Texas, to coopers. They have the second best barbecue in the world

The best is served at Ridgewood near Elizabethton Tennesee

Llano is a long ways from my house. The best pork I’ve ever had is Memphis BBQ in Horn Lake, Mississippi. They’ve won Memphis in May numerous times.

And don’t think contests aren’t real. I was a judge once. Man, there is some lousy BBQ out there.

-——there is some lousy BBQ out there.-—

ain’t that the truth.

Coopers has places in Fort Worth, New Braunfels and Austin. But to get the real stuff and the atmosphere, Llano is the place

With Obama I wouldn't doubt for a second that these guys were intentionally planted in the audience. That's why they were NOT removed by security at Obam's request. They are part of the script.

A variation on the fainting routine used quite often by the Hillary handlers at her appearances.

It is unclear what the men were heckling the resident about. No foolin. Total set up. EVERY thing about this chumps life is scripted. Aint buyin it.
I love central Texas BBQ, but if I was in a place where the Kenyan slithered into, I would have left mid meal.

= = = = = = = = = = = =
The ‘HAPPIEST’ people were the SS agents who had been pressed into making sure BO-OBOZO had ‘cash’ to pay the bill.
One of his ‘intelligent aids’ probably made a statement like
“Do these places take Credit Cards?....”

Also would be interesting to know whose name was on the CC.

Yes, I realize that BO-OBOZO (more than likely) just jammed the money back in his pocket...where he would later claim it was a ‘gift’ from his friends....
