As you recall, in a previous post, a question was posed about the the resignation of openly gay former foreign policy spokesman Richard Grenell from the Romney campaign: If Team Willard can’t stand up to conservatives when it comes to someone they claimed to support, how could a President Willard make way tougher decisions– as in national or world crises– that would affect the entire country?
Once again, Mitt has shown voters what a cowardly weakling he is, when he came face to face with a woman who said that President Obama should be “tried for treason.” He refused to stand up to her, correct her, or even directly acknowledge that particular comment:
While I am no fan of John McCain’s, credit where credit is due:
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) understood this. At a town hall event in October, 2008, McCain fielded a comment from a woman who said Obama “is an Arab.” “No ma’am,” McCain said, shaking his head and taking the microphone from her hand. “He’s a decent, family man, citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with,” he said, earning a mix of applause and boos.
Think Progress has an update:
While he was apparently unwilling to say it to the woman’s face, when asked if he agreed with the woman by reporters after the event, Romney said, “No, of course not.”
Boy howdy, did that take guts, Willard. You da man!
