It looks like Barbara Boxer may find out the hard way that having Obama stump for you isn’t all it is crack up to be. The Washington Times is reporting that gay rights activists repeatedly interrupted Obama’s stump speech for Barbara Boxer. The activists were calling out Obama on his promises about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
Washington Times: LOS ANGELES | A group of gay rights activists disrupted President Obama's speech at a fundraiser here for Sen. Barbara Boxer Monday night, decrying what they describe as Mr. Obama's inaction on overturning the military's ban on gay service members and calling on him to submit repeal language to Congress.
The activists interrupted Mr. Obama in the middle of his remarks to high-value Democratic donors during a reception at the California Science Center, with one protester shouting from the audience, "What about 'Don't ask, don't tell?'"
Mr. Obama yelled back, "We are going to do that."
He kept talking, increasing his volume to be heard over the protesters as the crowd took up a chant of "Yes, we can," to drown them out.
The Gay Patriot says the hecklers were from a group called GetEQUAL. When you watch the video notice how some in the crowd chant “Yes We Can” to drown out the hecklers. I would not be surprised if the chanters were handy dandy Obama plants.
