    The always "cool" Obama remained in charge the other night when he was disrupted by a group supporting the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" group. His response was to invite them on the stage.

    I'll bet the Secret Service had to scramble in case these folks took him up on the invite. And, for sure there must have been a big collective sigh of relief when the protesters failed to take Obama up on his invitation. :1_grouphug:

    See the story here. I think he handled this quite well. What say you???

    Probably a setup. We wouldn't want to see the President lose his appeal and coolness, now would we? :tongue3:

    I saw the clip on the news.

    He seemed pretty flummoxed to me.

    Asking them if they wanted to come up was more of a smart alec remark than a sincere offer.

    Smart alec (also smart aleck) - an obnoxiously conceited and impertinent person

    President Obama handled himself well, as he does most of the time.

    Actually, Rev Mitchell is a very well versed in Scripture, and is an excellent pastor. I have the highest of regards for him. The only thing he would see in a mirror besides his physical appearance is maybe the love of Jesus shining through.

    Based on that, and based on the quality of 99% of your posts, the remark does not surprise me one bit.

    Actually, I Thought Obama Was Acting Like a Street Thug...

    ... inviting them to come up and "fight!" At first I thought he handled it well, but, to invite them up there, well, it makes me think of two guys disagreeing and than choosing each other off!!!:laugh: Still, he handled the situation better than some. At least he didn't have to dodge Iraqi boots.........
