“Obama Keep Your Promise”

Updated

Considerable mention has been made on the blogosphere today (here and here and here) about the one mention that President Obama made about the protesters outside the Beverly Hilton last night — with some taking issue with the president making levity out of the demonstrators. “Clueless,” writes Andy Towle of Towleroad.

Obama said he hard one of the protesters say, “Obama keep your promise.”

The president continued, “I thought that’s fair. I don’t know which promise he was talking about.”

But it is not clear if he was mocking the gay rights protesters, citing his heavy load of campaign promises, or referring to the number of demonstrators with different causes.

See for yourself. Here’s the actual remark, captured by the camera pool:
