Obama Heckled at Connecticut Rally

The fun starts about two minutes in. Obama again repeats the canard that the GOP doesn't want to fight AIDS, after Bush spent more worldwide in the fight against AIDS and had bipartisan support. In fact, Obama may well have scaled back funding.
After five straight years of funding hikes and public-health victories — in 2008, Congress reauthorized PEPfAR with a new commitment of $48 billion over five years, with Senators Obama, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden all voting in favor of the move — the slowdown has AIDS advocates scratching their heads: Why would the Obama Administration back off from the one universally popular program inherited from Bush?
But hey, why let facts get in the way. You can see the anger when someone dares to interrupt his TelePrompter.
