Supporter Says President ‘Should be tried for treason’

Is that supposed to be contoversial statement, in some way?

“I’m not on the payroll to defend Obama from comments others make about him that he might not like. I’m actually running against him.”

And that is the end of that. Unfortunate he does not say things like this.

Someone should clue those Zero supporters that there are millions more that will gladly say the same thing.

FUBO!

“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.”

It sounds to me more like she was responding to
comments from the audience around her.

Obama campaign just checking to make sure Romney behaves JUST LIKE John McCain.

They are reminding Mitt to stay politically correct, and that they expect him to police words like “Muslim” or “Marxist” or “Birth Certificate” or “Treason” or “Radical” by himself.

Romney was right in not addressing her statement. The woman was right on, Obama is a traitor. He is no more of an American then Fidel Castro or Hugo Chavez are. Both he and his wife, Michelle hate this country immensely, and are all they can to destroy it for “all” Americans. They may be able to fool the druggies and Kool-Aid drinkers, but....they are not fooling millions of Americans. And....the Democrats protecting Obama are dead wrong and will find out just how wrong they are on Election Day, November 6th.

I can't figure out what the dispute is either.

The Democrats are way too subtle on this one ~ they need to 'splain it.

Great. Thanks for the publicity, bub.

Let's have a big national debate about this treason, eh?

Do they have Biden running their media plays now?


Obama is a traitor who whispers to Russians how he will help them after the election.

What a demonstration of the clear difference between Republicans (even RINOs like Romney) and Democrats. Republicans believe voters are adults and should be given the opportunity to exercise their First Amendment rights. Democrats believe voters are children who need to be corrected and instructed in what and how to think and speak.

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.”

This is probing fire.

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.

He should be tried for treason. Or at least sedition. The problem is how to decide which issue to try him on.

Naw, what they're doing is seeing if Romney is going to engage in attacks against potential voters.

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?

Say what you will about Romney but at least in this instance, he's no John McCain. McCain would have been falling all over himself to admonish someone for stating something like that. And he's have never answered the question.

I myself would like to ask Romney if he will reverse 99% of the Executive orders this POS Obama has written.

I've had just about enough of the “word police”. Freedom of speech means just that. Romney didn't say anything because these were her thoughts not his and as far as treason is concerned we have no proof that he isn't treasonous (Officially). Also, in defense of Romney and the lady at the town hall, the hatemongers on the left spew such venom with no repercussions it makes stuff like this look petty (which it is).

Widespread proliferation of modern firearms that handle modern gunpowder is the reason NOBODY gets tried for sedition anymore.

Barack Hussein Obama is our first doucebag president. Please let him be our last.

We expect that the Obama Regime to react according to the Chicago Way—with bullying tactics. Anyone opposing the Obama Regime will be met with reprisals including political, legislative and initiatives designed to kneecap your opponents. We wonder what kind of pressure the Chicago Way is putting on possible GOP donors where the Justice Department has become a political tool of he Regime. Gibson Guitars is a example of this action. Ted Nugent is a private citizen who has received threats.

For a good look at what I mean, check out this Wall Street Journal piece:

So, according to The Won, Romney doesn’t antagonize the base enough? Well, makes as much sense as the talk I hear from the left about how the press savages Obama on a daily basis...far tougher than they were on Bush.

Getting nervous Hussein?

This from the same a-hole that was publicly hinting that he might consider handing GWB and Dick Cheney over to Spain if they were successful in getting the International Criminal Court to issue indictments for them for “war crimes”.

I can't blame the Obama folks for thinking that. McCain was masterful at slapping conservatives down. Peerless. If I were Romney, I'd tell Obama to go get McCain on the campaign trail to defend him again.

My only question to Milktoast Mitt:

“If you become president, will you appoint someone in the Justice Department who will investigate, prosecute and jail Eric ‘the Thug’ Holder, Barack Hussein Obama, (and others) for murder, sedition, perjury, theft, conspiracy, embezzlement, treason, hate crimes, racial bias and on and on?”

My answer is that he does NOT have the NUTS. Like all the punk a$$ rinos he surrounds himself with, he will pee his pants and lose his load the first time some ratz calls him a “racist”.

How pathetic.

Throw it right back at that BASTARD (and he is, look it up) Barack.

Demand to know why he hired Shepard Fairey of the “Bush belongs behind bars” sticker campaign.

Barack has LIED in his address to Congress (which is why a congressman said “YOU LIE”), he has attacked the Supreme Court repeatedly. He does NOT believe in 3 separate branches of government. He does NOT support our allies. He bows before foreigner leaders. He trash talks America on foreign soil. He has declare surrender in the War on Terror.

Let’s not even bother with the whole gun smuggling to scare the public into suspending the 2nd amendment issue.

When one of your supporters blurts out the truth about me, your preferred response should be “Obama’s a fine family man.” Thank you for playing.
