Angry Teabaggers Heckle Obama: 'Obama Broken Promises KILL'

Tea Partiers really have to get control of their activists. We must return to civility and stop with this angry, raucous behavior. What sort of example does this set to the rest of the public?

Oh, wait, it was core Democrat constituents booing him.

Never mind.
President Barack Obama got heckled at a fundraiser Wednesday night by protesters 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.
How pathetic. The man just refuses to accept responsibility for anything. Oooh, ooh, don't yell at me, yell at them!
Addressing an activist pushing for more funding for global AIDS initiatives, the president said, "We heard your point. And as I said before, we increased AIDS funding. ... The people who will take over if we don't focus on the election, I promise you, will cut AIDS funding."
Really? Can he point to a single vow from a single Republican who said they'd cut AIDS funding?
