2. It's telling that at the point of his remarks about 'doing the right thing', he was interrupted.

The right wing wanted to make sure that message was muddled.

They pulled this stunt with Rush saying Obama broke the law with a temporary stay on the deportation of youngsters who were born here.

The heckler went with the Republican line that Democrats favor foreigners over Americans in two questions as Obama was leaving.

To answer your question more directly, I say NO. We can't do the same thing. We don't have classes of Americans we hate like the Republicans do.

This sneak attack was a dog whistle for their politics of hatred. We don't even hate Republicans, at least our candidates don't.

The Democratic Party is inclusive and snarks and pot shots are never about making things work for everyone, but to divide people.

Of all people, Obama is not playing that game and he should not.
