Not “your McCain’s” campaign eh … Not taking the bait.
Mitt Romney declined to commit to telling his campaign to stop heckling President Obama’s campaign, just days after the president’s strategist condemned those who had heckled the GOP candidate during his bus tour this weekend.
“I know America has a long history of heckling,” said Romney during an interview with “Kilmeade and Friends” on Fox. “Free speech, but it would be very nice if we could reach that kind of conclusion. I’m not sure it’s possible, but that would certainly be a nice setting to reach.”
After groups of protesters came close to drowning out two of Romney’s campaign events in Ohio on Sunday, Obama’s senior campaign strategist David Axelrod condemned the behavior, remarking on Twitter that the tactics exhibited by the protesters were more attune to something the Romney campaign would do.
In May, Axelrod was heckled by members of the Romney campaign its supporters during a press conference he held in Boston meant to highlight Romney’s record as governor.
But Romney appeared more reluctant to condemn the behavior, and when asked if he will “urge” his staff to stop heckling, Romney responded, “I can assure you that we do not believe in unilateral disarmament.”
“Hey, hey, bilateral disarmament, that’s a different matter, but unilateral, no way,” added Romney.
Funny how the lamestream does Obama’s bidding. Team Obama, good player, supports Obama reelection every way they can.
