Barack Obama News: Obama Faces ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ Hecklers At Speech (see video below)
President Barack Obama was in California today at a campaign fundraiser for Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer.
During President Obama’s visit to California, he gave a speech in which he started talking about the military’s “don’t ask don’t tell” policy. That is the policy that currently prevents gays from serving openly in the United States Military.
As President Barack Obama was speaking, hecklers broke out in the crowd wanting to know what he was going to do to get rid of the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy – and to which, President Obama simply said, after a bit of exasperation, “I support the repeal of the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy”. Upon him saying that, the crowd started to cheer!
