(Newser) – President Obama got heckled at one of his own fundraisers last night, USA Today reports. "Use your leadership! No war in Iran!" a woman yelled. "Nobody has announced a war, young lady," Obama responded, to laughter and cheers. "But we appreciate your sentiment. You're jumping the gun a little bit there." Iran and its nuclear program will likely be a hot topic all weekend, with Obama slated to speak to pro-Israeli lobbying group AIPAC Sunday and meet with Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Monday.

Obama seems like a savior when compared to little drunken hitler bush.

Iran lacks the capability and material to launch a nuclear attack. The repubs really frighten you, huh? LOL.

I enjoy seeing Obama go off script and interact with protesters, hecklers, etc. He does it respectfully without getting upset or demeaning the other person's point.
