“Boy, that escalated quickly…”

The other day a Code Pink regular interrupted President Obama’s national insecurity speech and POTUS talked his way through it. Michelle Obama, however, isn’t quite as patient with hecklers:

First lady Michelle Obama experienced a rare face-to-face encounter with a protester late Tuesday – approaching the activist and threatening to leave a fundraiser if the person did not stop interrupting her speech.

Obama was addressing a Democratic Party fundraiser in a private Kalorama home in Northwest Washington when Ellen Sturtz, 56, a lesbian activist, interrupted her remarks to demand that President Obama sign an anti-discrimination executive order.

Obama showed her displeasure – pausing to confront Sturtz eye to eye, according to witnesses.

“One of the things that I don’t do well is this,” she said to applause from most of the guests, according to a White House transcript. “Do you understand?”

A pool report from a reporter in the room said Obama “left the lectern and moved over to the protester.” The pool report quoted Obama as saying: “Listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”

FLOTUS got the heckler to leave after threatening to lecture her about a healthy diet and exercise.

Funny how these well known rabble-rousing activists keep managing to slip into these events, isn’t it?

Here’s audio, though you can’t hear the part where Michelle threatened to leave:

The official White House transcript did include the heckler’s comments but did not include FLOTUS’s threat to “walk off this mother*#ker” — of course I’m paraphrasing.

    Ron Burgundy above Moo-chelle. He has far more class than she does.

    The protester was no doubt shocked that Mooch didn`t listen, being of the chosen persuasion n all, and since Barry had promised to sign an anti-discrimination EO.

    Mooch has shown us Barry`s thin skin ain`t got nuttin` on Mooch`s thin skin !

    …….. "of course I`m paraphrasing." Of course, but we all believe she was thinking just that !

    TOTUS-2 must not have been loaded with heckler responses.

    Does Canada make taller buses; `cause it`s getting mighty crowded under there ?!

    A compelling reason why, when the Party of Violence and Deception takes over, these people will have served their purpose, and will no longer be needed, and therefore, eliminated, or transferred to the Nome hole digging/filling plant.

    They won't come after us, as they need our work ethic to use against us to keep them fed, clothed, and served.

    I wonder, if we heckle her often and loud enough can we get her to leave the country?

  7. SignPainterGuy on June 6th, 2013 1:37 am

    Probably not, but don`tcha know she`d lose her cool !?

    FWIW, "I" filed that rumor / theory away without any chuckles, but with deserved suspicion. Barry`s very early statement that "we would come down on the side of the muslims" and others, his disdain for Israel, his calling us terrorists while ignoring the real dangers of islam, his apology tour and a string of appeasements of muslims made me see the swap as a very real possibility.

    I am now saying, I`m not at all surprised by the revelation, just the depths of his depravity !

    Except for a few grammatical errors, an excellent report, DG.

    About that "heckler" Obama was so skillful with. She was a plant. Like the fainting people at his speeches before his first election. Like the question that allowed Lowass Lerner to break the IRS targeting scandal. This speech was at Fort McNair. The appropriately named "Medea" Benjamin of Code Pink is rather well known. And the Secret Service had to know she is famous for heckling—she's been removed from hearings on the Hill. The cops, the FBI, the Secret Service KNOW her (as does the WH). NDU didn't vet the media attendees. The White House did and they KNEW medea wasn't media. This was planned so Obama could do his fatherly, reasonable thing and Americans would be outraged by how badly he's picked on.

    Mooch certainly "acted" like she was not prepared for the heckling, but when she was begged not to leave, she returned to the podium and took right back up where she left off, so maybe you`re right.

    Barry is thin-skinned and adored, so the thinking was, Mooch would be too ?

    My jury is out !

    As an aside; gays claim they don`t want "special rights", but Madea was demanding the pRes. sign anti-discrimination EO(s) when there are already anti-discrimination in hiring laws on the books. Sounds special to me.

    English as a Second Language

    Lesson 32: “walk off this mother*#ker”

    Perhaps simply a regional variant, "off" could be replaced with the term "up out" to more properly modify "this mother*#ker." It is also quite common to prefix the verb "walk" with "fixin' to."

    Jackie Kennedy was the best First Lady you Americans had. She was pretty, intelligent, spoke more than one language, and was adored by the rest of world! can't say the same thing about Obamas woman.

    The most typical forms of transcription from the legitimate world pertain to court proceedings, depositions, captive interrogations along with affidavits and also basic correspondence. Health care Transcription Services Medical transcription uses a wonderful degree to train because of the health care lingo. In most cases the service might get scientific notes which have been influenced in a message method as well as in to a dvr.
