I disagree with you. The heckler tried to "hijack" a meeting totally unrelated to the gay rights issue. I'm 100% for the gay rights movement, BUT this meeting was neither the time nor the place to bring up the issue. The First Lady handled it with poise and the self confidence required to deal with such ignorant, rude, and inappropriate action as that displayed by the heckler.

After reading the first two responses, I have something to add: Neither of you have any clue just what "class" IS. And, it is obvious that neither of you were raised to understand the word "respect".
So, IF Laura Bush was "heckled" and the public never "heard about it on the media", just how do you know she was "heckled"?? IF it happened and she didn't stand up for herself, then she was a "doormat" in my opinion.

You and your husband are attacked on every level. Your cabinet members resigning. It's easy to be on the outside looking in with no hope of ever becoming president. Need to back up and stop comparing the Obama's to everything and everybody.

Listen to the audio.

I was talking about my love for inner-city pickaninnies, how pickaninnies are born screwed, how the odds are all against my little pickaninnies, when this crew-cut lesbo in corduroy cuts me off and starts talking about homo-sexual marriage and that my husband better make it legal nationwide immediately by EXECUTIVE ORDER despite the homosexuals' epic loss in our home state this weekend.
