Obama Heckled By…Supporters ?

It’s always interesting when political figures are giving a speech and the protesters start chiming in. Normally that throws the person giving the speech off their game and all sorts of yelling back and forth ensues.

In this particular case it wasn’t protesters, but hecklers (there is a difference in this context).

At this particular event, President Obama was giving a speech at a fundraiser for California gubernatorial candidate Barbara Boxer. The topic of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell came up and members of the gay rights group GetEQUAL “politely” reminded the President of his promise to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell when he got into office.

Check out how the POTUS handled the situation.
