President Barack Obama was giving a fundraising speech when he received an unruly response from the crowd who heckled the President to repeal the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' law.

During the fundraiser for U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer in California the audience began to challenge the President on what he is doing to lose the law which bans gays serving openly within the military.
