    Obama looks a bit shaken at the persistent heckling he underwent. I can imagine he left this event thinking - WHY THE HELL DID I COME HERE????

    Hecklers Pester President Obama During Coakley Senate Election Speech

    Incessant hecklers forced President Barack Obama’s speech to a halt in Massachusetts on Sunday, as he showed his support for Democratic Senate candidate Martha Coakley. It sounded more like today’s NFL playoff game than a political rally

    Off the cuff Barry is painful to watch.

    The man is helpless without prepared text.

    Not sure what the heckler(s) were angry over.

    Abortion perhaps?

    If so, it is quite plausible the heckler was a plant to continue the Coakely campaign's attempts to portray Scott Brown as some kind of radical anti-woman candidate. That poison of the Coakley campaign has gone over the cliff in the last 48 hours.

    If so, that dog is just not gonna hunt...

    I'll sum it up for you.

    Some idiots yells, you can't really hear what he says. Crowd chants Obama. Idiot yells again, same thing. This occurs for about two minutes.

    Sinatra probably thinks this is the entire state yelling at him mind you.

    Click the link - video toward the bottom.

    Obama's initial reaction is to attempt to blow it off - then he looks a bit confused and definitely off script, - a deer in the headlight moment for him.

    Still not sure if it was a legit protest or a Coakley campaign plant though...

    You're more paranoid than Palin. You couldn't even make out what he was saying.

    And you would find it hard to believe for a Brown supporter to be heckling about abortion? You truly are foolish.

    We can't have seen the same clip. The one I saw in the link he did fine.

    The crowd starting booing and chating his name when the heckler started and he was smiling, and waited until the disruption had finished then carried on.

    He handled the interruption with aplomb, dignity and class...

    ...The Chimp would have probably told a fart joke....
