(Newser) – Hecklers' shouts brought President Obama's energy speech to a halt yesterday at Ohio State University. One audience member demanded that Obama read a book he was holding, Politico reports. Obama paused, telling the man, "Sir, I'm here to speak to these folks. You can hold your own rally. You're being rude." He asked aides to accept the book. "I'll be happy to take your book, but don't interrupt everybody else. Alright?" Later, others yelled at the president to "block the pipeline."
