Mitt Romney Remains Silent As Woman Says President Obama Should Be Tried For Treason

Huffington Post

An awkward moment occurred at Mitt Romney’s town hall event in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday when an audience member, in the process of asking him a question, asserted that President Barack Obama should be tried for treason. Romney remained silent during the question-and-answer session, only to say that he “of course” did not agree with the sentiment while greeting voters after the event.

The incident nevertheless illustrated what seems likely to be a tricky proposition for Romney as the general election season progresses: balancing the anti-Obama sentiments of the party’s base with the need to maintain a civil level of discourse.

    He sure did jump to attention when someone suggested Ann never worked a day in her life. Goes to show you who he cares about…himself, his money, his power. Unfortunately, this is most likely truth, she had maids, housekeepers, drivers, nanny’s, a whole staff to help her, NO they do not know what life is like for regular people.

      Do you remember this? Ann Romney: ‘I Know What It’s Like to Struggle’

      How so, Ann? Pray tell? What enconomic issues has Ann Romney struggled with? How did she struggle economically with $250 million? These people got game! The Romneys will say anything to be in the White House.

    Romney is definitely one of the dumbest presidential candidates on the planet.

  4. I’d say this gives us all a glimpse into a Romney presidency and how he can handle difficult issues or decisions. He doesn’t know who to say, “no” to or how to react when he’s caught in that ype pf situation. This then leads to credibility of the claim he would be Norquist’s rubber stamp president.

  5. Obama campaign responds to Mitt Romney’s silence on treason allegation

    Statement from Obama campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith on Mitt Romney failing to repudiate accusation of treason against President Obama and his campaign surrogate’s attack on travel by President and Mrs. Obama.

    Today we saw Mitt Romney’s version of leadership: standing by silently as his chief surrogate attacked the President’s family at the event and another supporter alleged that the President should be tried for treason. Time after time in this campaign, Mitt Romney has had the opportunity to show that he has the fortitude to stand up to hateful and over-the-line rhetoric and time after time, he has failed to do so. If this is the ‘leadership’ he has shown on the campaign trail, what can the American people expect of him as commander-in-chief?

    • Mitt Romney is the most despicable spineless POS. He paid that buck dancing coon to accuse the President of treason. He is totally unfit for office. Pandering for votes. A shameless ass clown who has no business near the Presidency. He will NEVER be President of the United States!
