"It's good to see ya. I have to say, you know what? I saw this guy down in LA. Two points I want to make. He really should like buy a ticket to, if he wants to demonstrate, buy a ticket to a guy who doesn't support his point of view. Maybe he didn't read the newspapers because we are working with congress as we speak to roll back 'don't ask, don't tell.' I actually think he does read the newspapers because he wasn't as - his heart wasn't in it - he said 'Do it faster.' C'mon man, I'm dealing with Congress here. It takes a little bit of time."

-- President Obama after Kip Williams heckled him again about Don't Ask Don't Tell at another Barbara Boxer fundraiser in California. Williams shouted "Move faster on Don't Ask Don't Tell!" during Obama's speech.

Another silly stunt that ONLY embarrasses us.

Obama lead the crowd in laughing at Kip Williams and GetEQUAL.
