Hillary Clinton and a Heckler

  • At a speech on Wednesday in Buffalo, N.Y., former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took on a heckler, and won, by dealing with him in the same way that many believe politicians should fix the breakdown in civility in Washington.

    That is — make it clear that citizenship doesn’t include yelling. “It includes sitting down and talking,” she said, to a rousing ovation from the 6,500 in attendance.

    The man, who had been yelling from an upper section of the bleachers during the event on the campus of the University of Buffalo, was eventually led away by security, but not before Clinton addressed his actions from the podium. According to WIBV.com, the man screamed "Benghazi, Benghazi, you let them die" in reference to the terror attack on a U.S. Embassy in Libya in which four Americans were killed.

    “We can’t move from crisis to crisis,” she said, according to reports, “we have to be willing to come together as citizens to focus on the kind of future we want.”

  • I doubt Hilary would've sat down to talk to that man.  She is all bluster.

    That may be so. The polititian who had the best responsese to hecklers I think was George Wallace. He would cry out I have one four letter word for you, "S. O. A. P." or he might spll out "W. O. R. K." Other times he would cry out I have a word for you, "J. O. B."
