As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video: Obama Heckled in Song at San Francisco Fundraiser

President Obama was heckled today at a San Francisco fundraiser by a table of contributors seeking freedom for Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier accused of leaking classified information to Wikileaks.

In the song, the protestors said they would vote for Obama but expressed disappointment with him, singing “We’ve paid our dues, where’s our change?”

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Obama found the disturbance “kind of funny.”

But not since a an Iraqi threw his shoe at George W. Bush have I seen a president treated with so little respect. This is certainly a sign that the Obama mystique of 2008 has worn off completely.

Here are the song lyrics.

Dear Mr. President we honor you today sir
Each of us brought you $5,000
It takes a lot of Benjamins to run a campaign
I paid my dues, where’s our change?
We’ll vote for you in 2012, yes that’s true
Look at the Republicans — what else can we do?
Even though we don’t know if we’ll retain our liberties
In what you seem content to call a free society
Yes it’s true that Terry Jones is legally free
To burn a people’s holy book in shameful effigy
But at another location in this country
Alone in a 6×12 cell sits Bradley
Twenty three hours a day and night
The 5th and 8th Amendments say this kind of thing ain’t right
We paid our dues, where’s our change?

  1. The “freshjuice” singers are not being disrespectful, they’re exercising their Freedom of Speech.
    As for respecting the President; maybe he could start by respecting the American people and the American way.

  2. So they’re telling him they are dissatisfied with his performance and want him to change, all while assuring them of their vote next time around. What’s wrong with this picture? If he’s got your vote in the bag why should he listen to you?

  3. At long last the left is beginning to hold their hypocritical eternal candidate accountable. However if Tea Partyers did the exact same thing they would have been tackled, shackled and arrested. In Obama’s America some protesters are “more equal” than others.

  4. This is pathetic on so many levels. Number one you paid 5k to see this idiot and number two your defense of a service man that committed treason. I am truly at a loss here as to whom should be more embarrassed; Obama, since these are his supporters (“we love you”) or these dopes for backing both Obama and Manning. In any event, in both cases these dumasses BACKED THE WRONG HORSE!
