Obama gets heckled at Coakley rally

Hat tip to Hack Wilson blog for bringing this to my attention.

I listened to the video like 10 times already and I still cannot figure out what the heckler is saying.  Listen to it and let me know what you think the heckler says. 

Either way, the Obama Coakley rally did not enjoy the same enthusiasm as Scott Brown did. I hate to rely on evidence like this, but it is looking more and more like at total Brown out in Massachusetts.

I can't tell what the heckler(s) said but it sure made Obama squirm. He tries to compensate by doing his usual grinning and fingerpointing but, man, he sure looks uncomfortable when things don't go according to teleprompter.

Thank you Another Bold Conservative,

I thought it was a bit ironic that that the President spent more time attempting to quiet the folks who wanted to express their thoughts, than actually saying I support what you say. I may not agree with what they wanted to say but I believe that they should have the opportunity to state it.

Whatever the heckler had to say should have been accepted and addressed according to the free speech concepts that keep indivdually safe. Chances are they were out of line given the selected audience in attendance. But hey, we can't please everyone if we are unique in what we state.

Yet did not the British think the same when We the People rose up and heckled suppression.

If Brown is elected I hope the folks in Mass will hold him accountable to speak for the voices that elected him.

Nope, can't hear it, but I did hear Obama talking about Coakley's relationship with bankers....... not a pretty mental image there, Again, with the multiple "I's"....aye, yi, yi, yi,yi, yi.

From The Boston Globe:

"The president's speech, which organizers said was attended by 1,500 people in the gym and viewed by 2,500 in a spillover room, was briefly interrupted by a shout of 'Abortion! Abortion! Innocent Blood!' Two men and an 8-year-old boy were escorted out of the gym by police. One of the men could be seen holding a placard that read, 'Jesus loves all babies.'"

All I made out was at the beginning when he first yelled... "That's Bullsh-t!"

Sums up whatever 0bama has to say quite nicely.

Hack said...

Correction. It was "Abortion!" Sounded like the expletive I wanted to hear someone yell at Obama!

Something new for POTUS, discontent in the ranks. Apparently TOTUS doesn't come programmed with responses to hecklers.

Whatver it was that was said, I'm just glad it knocked obama back on his heels. maybe that will show the people of the People's Republic of Massachussettsor that they don't HAVE to elect liberals just because Ted Kennedy held the seat for so long.

B-b-b-but it's TED'S seat! And you don't need just another politician that talks the talk!

Personally, I thought he looked more than a little PO'd. said...

All I could make out was something like "innocent blood." Most likely it was about Obama's stand on abortion.

From what I've read, Coakley deserves to go down in flames. And please someone remind the Kennedys that in the US, people are voted in, not allowed to assume positions because they're rich.
Just my thoughts.
