This is part of Obama's comment after he had the heckler escorted out of the White House. How would you say it in a different way? As a general rule, I am just fine with a few hecklers, but not when I'm up in the [White] House. My attitude is, if you're eating the hors d'oeuvres.

They are got going to be aggressive to you
