Romney declines to condemn hecklers at Obama stops

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Mitt Romney has declined to call on his supporters to stop heckling President Barack Obama's campaign.

He told Fox News Radio on Tuesday that he doesn't believe in "unilateral disarmament," but said it would "be a nice thing" if both sides would stop yelling at each other during campaign events.

it cost George Allen a Senate seat.

The Washington Post killed Allen on calling a heckler a so called racist name.

Smart

Good answer, Mitt. No doubt McCain would have told the hecklers to “be civil”.

Oh, PLEASE!

How does AP know that the hecklers are Romney supporters?

When did Barack’s campaign become Romney’s lookout?

I'm obviously no fan of Romney but that's a good answer.

Did they also ask Obama why he “refuses” to condemn GOP hecklers?

What was his answer again?

Oh, yeah. I distinctly remember that. The mainstream media asking Obama to condemn Code Pink and other whack job groups.

I really, really remember the fuss they made about that.

“What was his answer again?’

exactly

My question is how can we win when the entire MSM is campaigning as hard as they can for Odumbo?
are there enough savy independent voters who can see through this
and who will do some research?

please say yes

Romney is right.

McCain would have denounced his supporters for heckling Obama, for all the good being nice did for him.

Proof positive that part of the Romney strategy is to get under Obama’s thin skin and provoke him into an on-camera meltdown.

Like a non-denial denial. He's saying "I agree people shouldn't heckle, but that's not something I can prevent". The turd in the Oval does the same thing, but the Press wouldn't ever call him on it. Remember when that loser McCain ran, he had to issue condemnations every day for the Press. Dumbass. Played their game, not his own.

The so-called ‘Democrat party’ is the reason tensions are so high.. Their party has been hijacked by Socialists. If Democrats were true Democrats at least they’d love America to some extent. Socialists HATE our free-market, capitalist Republic and thus trigger hostilities. They are not worthy of respect or decorum; They are the enemy within and should be treated as such.

Nope... still not supporting romneys socialist arse.

I gotta admit. The GOPe knows the buttons to push to get conservatives worked up. But I just wont get worked up to defend their socialist POS.

Honestly, Ill enjoy watching some of the more idiotic dems attempt to bring down their best chance at ending organized opposition to socialism. (a socialist republican president)

Once again, the Republican base allowed the ObamaMedia to choose our candidate. McCain was their choice in 2008, and Romney in 2012. The media shut down Santorum and Gingrich and we allowed them to. This is a serious problem, difficult to overcome. I voted my conscience. I voted Gingrich. It seems most people vote for the candidate ‘most likely to beat the opponent’ WHICH IS WHICHEVER CANDIDATE THE MEDIA NARRATIVE DICTATES. We’re lambs led to the slaughter.

Santorum was out of his league but thought he could play with the big boys, and effectively kept Gingrich from advancing.

Romney is our choice, good or bad... he’s our choice. Live with it, and hold him to the fire.

So far, he’s running a strong campaign, and I like what I’m hearing. We need to beat the punk in the white house and as many libs on both sides to boot.

So much like Mc Lame, they've had to inStalin their vote counting system upon us.

Myth blows. He'll still win, unless whomever does the counting doesn't want him to.

Heckling is a good start since the days of calling someone out to a duel are no more.
Otherwise, I would settle for punching a rat in the face.

A text transcript of that quote simply doesn’t do it justice...

However, the funniest thing I heard with regard to that quote was when someone overplayed the “Mars Attacks” “Ack ack ack” speech along with it.

This worked with McCain, might as well try it with Romney. Obama’s machine got after McCain every time anyone yelled anything at an Obama rally, or yelled anti-Obama words at a McCain rally. Eventually, McCain was campaigning for Obama- “You have nothing to fear from an Obama presidency”.

Might as well try it with Romney, who knows, it might work.

I think Mitt is hip to this, though. Plus he does not have Stockholm Syndrome.

What was even more disgusting about that moment, is just as soon as Webb Simpson was handed the trophy and had it lifted for all of about 5 seconds, Bob Costas sticks his ugly mug before the camera and that microphone in Webb's face. It was so disgusting to steal the winner's moment in the spotlight so Costas could get on there running his trap. Unbelievably shameful on the part of NBC.

Now, back to this thread.

Seeing that Obama is paying professional hecklers to try and keep up with Romney’s bus tour stops to heckle him, I see no reason for Romney to do so.

In fact I’d embrace their right to do so. And defend it strongly.

If Romney was really on top of this, he’d say, You know, I actually agree with Hillary Clinton on this issue - and then pull out a tablet with her screeching diatribe about disagreeing with any administration and being patriotic.

I don’t think the media would ever ask him that question again. They’d have been Alinskyed.
