    Obama heckled on AIDS, gay rights at fundraiser
    NEW YORK – President Barack Obama got heckled at a fundraiser Wednesday night by protesters :clap2: pushing for more funding for AIDS programs and quicker action to allow gays to serve openly in the military.

    Activists yelled slogans and held signs aloft reading "Obama broken promises KILL." Supporters of the president tried to drown them out with shouts of "O-bam-a! O-bam-a!"

    The hecklers were so raucous Obama went off-script several times to address them, insisting he's increased AIDS funding and is working to overturn the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. He told them to go shout at Republicans, noting that a vote on repealing "don't ask, don't tell" failed this week in the Senate, with Republicans united in opposition.

    "Some of those signs should be going up at the other folks' events, and folks should be hollering at the other folks' event. Because the choice in November could not be clearer," the president said.

    Name a President who wasn't heckled at an AIDS fundraiser. :eusa_whistle:

    note: the President would have had to gone to one in the first place.

    One of the best possible keynote speakers for your cause and some lunatic fringe is going to heckle him. I don't know as any other sitting President has spoken for this fund raiser. So, heckling would be a very significant event.

    I've never enjoyed watching a president fail so effortlessly until Obama. He's not only alienated his own race, but most of the democratic party. Well done indeed.
