DADT posts

GetEQUAL co-founder Kip Williams heckled barry at Barbara Boxer’s fundraiser on Tuesday.

Where were the environmentalist hecklers?

AUDIENCE MEMBER:  Move faster on “don’t ask, don’t tell”!

AUDIENCE:  Boo!

THE PRESIDENT:  It’s good to see you again.

AUDIENCE:  Yes, we can!  Yes, we can!  Yes, we can!  Yes, we can!

THE PRESIDENT:  I have to say — you know, I saw this guy down in L.A. at a Barbara Boxer event about a month and a half ago, and I would — two points I want to make.  Number one, he should — I hate to say this, but he really should, like, buy a ticket to — if he wants to demonstrate, buy a ticket to a guy who doesn’t support his point of view.  And then you can yell as much as you want there.

The other point is maybe he didn’t read the newspapers — because we are working with Congress as we speak to roll back “don’t ask, don’t tell.”  I actually think he does read the newspapers because he wasn’t as — his heart didn’t seem in it.  He said do it faster.  It’s like, come on, man, I’m dealing with Congress here.  It takes a little bit of time.

Then it’s back to him.

AUDIENCE MEMBER:  Thank you.

THE PRESIDENT:  You’re welcome. It’s nice to feel appreciated once in a while.
