It may be because all his supporters were in D.C. for the Rally to Restore Sanity, or perhaps it’s just a recurring theme for the President in the Northeast: President Obama was heckled at his campaign stop today by AIDS activists once again, after experiencing the same at a similar stop in Boston.
Midway through his speach, a significant portion of the crowd began to boo, to which a clearly displeased Obama said “excuse me, young people. You’ve been appearing at every rally we’ve been doing, as we’re funding global AIDS, and the other side is not, so I don’t see why you think this is a useful strategy for you to take.” Instead, he advised, they should “go to the folks who aren’t interested in funding global AIDS and chant in that rally, because we’re trying to focus on figuring out how to finance the things you want financed.”
It’s about 3-4 minutes of heckling, and it’s absolutely painful to watch. Also hard to imagine that it will take long for someone somewhere to suspect that these activists are Republican plants.
