Obama heckled during energy speech in Ohio
The Hill ^ | March 22, 2012 | Andrew Restuccia

Posted on 03/22/2012 5:33:44 PM PDT by Beaten Valve

A heckler interrupted President Obama’s speech on energy policy Thursday at Ohio State University.

The president, looking frustrated, stopped speaking and addressed the man

"Sir. Im here to speak to these folks. You can hold your own rally. You're being rude," Obama said, as the crowd applauded.

The heckler was apparently holding up a book for Obama to read. The president said he would read the book, but asked the man to stop interrupting his speech.

"Sir, I'm trying to talk to these people. I'll be happy to read your book. If you wanna give me your book, I'll be happy to read it. But don't interrupt my conversation with these folks," he said, asking his staff to retreive the book. "Show me some courtesy, alright?"

How do you have a conversation when you’re the only one speaking?

Just from a civil discourse matter....I ‘m glad jug ears did what he did.....

People should respect the people who came to hear whoever is speaking....

Of course liberals don’t abide by the same rules

I’m surprised. He usually has busloads of astroturf pre-assigned to his speech areas. Since this heckler wasn’t bodily removed with wanton disregard by the SS, he may have been planted as a diversion to look legitimate.

I find this impossible to believe as Ohio is totally happy with a radical Muslim socialist agenda. They are so used to fake ID’s they would actually vote someone into the WHitehouse with one.

All the Heckler had to yell out was “Lier!” after each of Obama’s sentences. Nothing else needed be said. Joe Wilson was right and a prophet!

Your answer has more credibility than anything else. Just looks a little to easy for Obama taking the high road.

As a “minority”, I say these types of organizations are racist and should be banned.

More lies from the liar. Okay, maybe the book was Rules for Radicals? What are the odds that BO's "contemporaneous" response to this heckler, was a script emanating from the teleprompter? lol

Now we all just have to guess... sheesh!

Judging my the gnashing of teeth today over on the DU, I will bet this was not a heckler from the Right.

I agree. Instead of interrupting, one should boo appropriately.

This isn’t passing the smell test. It sounds staged to make Obama sound like he can handle situations like this.

I don’t think only screened supporters get into oBozo’s rallies.

Yep. Can’t help but notice that liberal/radical based demonstrators don’t hesitate for one minute to out-shout any speaker, trash the place and cause a general disruption and it’s all within their rights.

On second thought...

A plant for sure, otherwise, we would have had a “Don’t Taze me bro...” moment.

I’m sure the SS will have this agitator arrested under the new EP for protesting near the resident
