88. I was in DC on vacation a while back
and decided to go with some friends to the Mall. There were some protests and a pro-marijuana march so we said what the hey and marched along. By the end of our little parade, I had seen anti-Israel, anti-US, and all sorts of outrageous effigies, fake blood, and what have you - known of which truly represented my views on those issues.

There were maybe 10-12 different organizations protesting their views, as they should, but they were most certainly not there for the so-called "pro-marijuana" March (which was preplanned and had flyers out and all that).

Point being, a cacophony of voices gets created and Obama was merely musing on that fact. He was not ripping on anyone.
