...After Supporter Says President Should be tried for treason
The Obama campaign slammed Mitt Romney Monday for not confronting a supporter who said during a town hall event in Cleveland that the president should be tried for treason.
We have a president right now that is operating outside the structure of our Constitution, a woman said during a question-and-answer session. And I want to know yeah, I do agree he should be tried for treason but I want to know what you would be able to do to restore balance between the three branches of government and what you are going to be able to do to restore our Constitution in this country.
Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, ignored the treason comment and answered her question.
Well, as Im sure you do, I happen to believe the Constitution was not just brilliant but probably inspired, he said. I happen to believe the same thing about the Declaration of Independence. I would respect the different branches of government if I am fortunate enough to become president.
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, campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith said in a statement. If this is the leadership he has shown on the campaign trail, what can the American people expect of him as commander-in-chief?
Romney repeated his position shortly after the event during an interview on CNN but rejected the notion that he had a responsibility to take on the audience member.
I dont correct all of the questions that get asked of me. Romney said.

lest we forget he called us terrorists
The truth really hurts.......don’t it?
Could be an Axelrod/Obama plant. I expect to see lots of screaming accusations about Obama thrown at Romney that the MSM will expect him to apologize for.
This pResident IS a traitor!
Getting hit where it hurts, eh?
Obama is trying to determine just how truthful and tough Romney will get in this fight.
Will Romney fight back...or simply roll over like McCain?
Evidently, Obama believes Romney is one of his surrogates and should defend him.
Then again, maybe I’m the fool for assuming he’s not.
RINOs still don’t believe Republicans, particularly Conservatives, should be given the opportunity to vote for their candidates in a primary.
McCain would have said “You don’t have to be askeered of him. He is a fine man.”
I am sure she has a super audit in her future.
Bunch’a bitter, Constitutional clingers....
He should be tried for treason. Or at least sedition. The problem is how to decide which issue to try him on.
Truth hurts, don’t it, DNC?
Remember all those times Obama publicly denounced the people who called for Bush to be tried for treason while he was in office?
Oh wait. That’s because he didn’t.
That's what killed Perry ~ he said Conservatives were 'heartless' ~ and right up to that second he'd been one of our candidates ~ then he revealed himself as a RINO.
We already know Romney is a RINO ~ but does he want our votes?
I myself would like to ask Romney if he will reverse 99% of the Executive orders this POS Obama has written.
Don't even bring it up ~
...because sometimes silence is golden!
Barack Hussein Obama is our first doucebag president. Please let him be our last.
