Obama and The Heckler

Interesting footage from Ohio. A disturbed man insists on reciting the Pledge Of Allegiance in the middle of a speech on energy.

Actually, neurotic patriotism is not a bad description for some elements on the degenerate right. But Obama handles it almost perfectly. Check it out:
