Of course it was staged to make MAObama appear as a moderate on the issue, and to keep bashing the GOP.

When a human being is able to garner respect from people, they don't heckle them. Obama has shown the world he's thin skinned and easily bullied. That's why he's at 36% approval. Real American Citizens know when they're looking up to a President. This is how people feel about BO. They have pushed him around like a basketball, and he always relent's, says oh it's okay, don't worry, he needs a shoe in the face. Maybe he'll catch it or maybe he'll hug and kiss the thrower. Yeek, makes me want too throw up.

The article says that heckling is the best way to break the script of these political rallies but I believe, like most other reasonable people, that this heckling is an important part of that script, designed to make Obama look like a man of reason and tolerance. Who knows, maybe his worshipers in Hollywood are even writing these scripts for him.
