Heckling Obama Twice Is One Too Many Times

During his second fund-raising appearance for Senator Barbara Boxer Tuesday night in California, Barack Obama was heckled by a protester whom he had encountered before — and, well, let’s just say it’s unlikely this guy is going to be causing any trouble for the president again anytime soon. Obama was in the middle of discussing the economy when the man yelled out, “Move faster on 'don't ask, don't tell!'"

The crowd started to boo and the man continued to shout, at which point Obama just let it all out:

“It's good to see ya,” the president said. “I have to say, you know what? I saw this guy down in L.A ... [Obama had been heckled about 'don't ask, don't tell' at the first Boxer fund-raiser.] Two points I want to make … he really should like buy a ticket to, if he wants to demonstrate, buy a ticket to a guy who doesn't support his point of view ... The other point is maybe he didn't read the newspapers because we are working with congress as we speak to roll back 'don't ask, don't tell'... I actually think he does read the newspapers because he wasn't as - his heart wasn't in it - he said 'Do it faster.' C'mon man..."
