If you think that is creepy why dont you think its creepy when John McCain gets heckled, or President Bush get screamed at , or Sec. Rice gets faux
blood thrown at her. The only thin fishy here is you only cry wolf with Obama. I hope he is a big enough boy to handle it!! He already believes he is
commander in chief.
I don't think it's creepy when someone heckles George Bush or John McCain because usually those people aren't:
1. Trying to hide their identity
2. Going to the trouble of getting press credentials to do their heckling/make interruptions
3. Rather than heckle even, this Gentlemen chose to interrupt Obama's forum by demanding that the Pledge of Allegiance be recited.
4. The person in question used their press credentials to take photos during the entire event. What's the point? Who is he taking photos for?
I started this topic because I found it to be a little weird that someone would go to this much trouble to make a little scene.
Had this BEEN McCain or Bush, he would have been removed.
Obama hasn't started wars with no precedent, nor has he lied to the American public for 8 years straight, nor does he have the blood of thousands of
innocent Iraqis on his hands. I'm not here to argue that anyway. But if you'd like to elsewhere, I'd be more than happy to have a civilized,
2-way debate, with some stasis, if that's what you're looking for.
I don't have a problem with people heckling Obama, and I don't have a problem with people that don't like him.
I DO think that something like this is a little odd, and would also have thought that if it would have happened during a McCain speech.
Oh, and please explain how this is "crying wolf"? Good grief. This IS a conspiracy website right?
