    How would you or how should he have handled this differently, spend the whole time distracted by these folks?? Honest question, hope you give a clear answer..

    A town hall meeting is different than a speech. People are supposed to be able to ask questions at these events. If this was simply a speech and they were removed then fine ... they disrupted the speech. But he told them they could ask their questions later ... and had them removed anyways ... why? What is he afraid of?

    I don't believe you watched it ... if you did you would have seen his promise.

    I watched it, did not see where he requested their removal.. and even if he did why is this so bad.. I know they were removed, but did he tell security to remove them?? Or is this the judgement of his security people?? He is responsible for quite a bit, but not sure he is responsible for this one.. what is the difference if they disrupt a speech or a town meeting..

    If they were a disruption, then yea, they should be removed. But it appears it sure did mess up his teleprompter-speech.

    Just watched it again, let me know the keys to secret hand code where he asked for their removal.. do not see it.. but then again you read quite a bit into it.

    Consider if he did not do anything, you would be posting he is a wimp and allows himself to be walked all over.. so his staff or security does something and he is still wrong.. keep digging you may find something relevant today.. I do not see where he did anything wrong here..

    Of course, a lemming wouldn't find anything wrong with it.

    I thought you were changing FBN, but you're back to pretending you're a republican again. And once again, please admit to everyone that you're not a republican...your an angry Hillary supporter...

    And now, in all honesty a confirmed douche.

    Get over it....you're a man for crissakes. Who gives a ratsass about hillary? no one wanted her anyway.

    What is up with what i am ... I am an independant who is not a liberal ... thus I favor anyone from either party who is closer to the center .. now let's move on.

    For the record ... if I could find it I would to prove it ... I said back in 2004 when Bush won that I wanted Hillary to win in 2008. Also, before that ... i openly campaigned for more women in DC and especially a woman President ... there is no inconsistency here PR ... none.

    So you're a man who desperately wants a female president? You said you voted for Clinton twice and you've never voted for a republican president, correct?

    You have an obvious vendetta against Obama for no good reason other than he beat hillary. Why are you angry with Obama?

    I voted for Reagan ... I was more conservative then. I voted for Bush Sr ... did not like Dukakis ... I voted for Bush Sr. again but regretted it as the party was moving too far right and i was moving more to the center ... or both.

    I then voted for Clinton instead of Dole and I voted for Clinton again. Did not vote for Bush because i figured it would be a Bush Sr. Presidency again. i did not like Gore really but i hated Bush. I then voted for Kerry which killed me because he's a liberal but again I did not want Bush.

    That brings us today ... I'll vote for the 3rd party candidate this time around. doesn't matter really as i live in RI and RI is Obama country.

    Why did you start this thread? What did you find interesting about this very minor incident?

    Because it was a town hall meeting and he told them they could ask questions later but he had them kicked out anyways ... that's why. If it was a speech then sure ... they can go pound the pavement ... it's his speech.

    I am not angry with Obama ... I just think he's an idiot for not picking Hillary. If he doesn't know how to pick the best VP for the country ... even Joe Biden said so ... then how do I know he'll make any other good decisions? i think he'll make the decisions Michelle tells him to make.

    I'm not referring to this incident at all. You've seemed like you've been furious with him for quite a while FBN. that has been my point in my minor attacks upon you. You just seem like you have a singular focus to paint him in bad light.

    You don't just say you don't agree with his policies, you continually post rumor bullsh1t about him week after week. You have given me the impression you're upset over something you perceive about him disrespecting hillary.

    What democratic candidate in their right mind would want to pick Hillary FBN? All you'd have is an image of Bill's shadow hanging over your entire term. I would not have picked her. Do you think she would have picked him?

    In all honesty, I think she was far less electable than Obama.
