Obama rips "R" Presidential candidates From the link: "We don't believe in the kind of smallness that says it's okay for a stage full of political leaders -- one of whom could end up being the president of the United States -- being silent when an American soldier is booed. We don't believe in that," said Obama to loud cheers and a standing ovation. The POTUS is not exactly correct. Yes, the crowd did boo, but not because he was an American solider, but because he was a homosexual. Isn't it wonderful that delegates at the DNC haven't ever booed?
