(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."

Obama proves once again, that he is the only "adult" in the room. Newt would have told the heckler to shut his frickin pie hole.

Obama's destruction of America is rude. Let's face it, very few people like this clown any more. He has created a level of despair not seen since Vietnam.

I have four words for Barry Obama: "Cry Me A River!" Expect to be heckled when you constantly lie and stand in front of a crowd. At least no one was throwing pies at him and putting out a stage hook.
