President Obama appeared at Bowie State, a historically black college, in Maryland yesterday to stump for Gov. Martin O’Malley. During the rally, a protester screamed, “You’re a liar,” and was quickly shouted down and shoved by surrounding rally attendees.
According to the YouTube post:
President Obama came to Bowie State University and was met by a student that spoke out against his speak concerning how conservatives and Republicans are the reason for today’s economic condition. The student screamed out “you’re a liar”, causing the president to pause his speech. Then the student was physically beaten up by supporters, cursed down, and thrown side to side.
Obama then immediately changed his speech to start to defend himself and policies.
Obama’s appearance at the school came a week after his highly publicized appearance at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. During the 2010 election cycle, polling has indicated Obama’s support among young Americans has eroded.
