One of the biggest criticisms levied against Mitt Romney is that he's too weak-willed to take any kind of strong stance on any subject, even prompting American Family Association's Bryan Fischer to take a job at him for being "pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted" by Fischer himself. (To which, I'm sure, Romney laughed and said something along the lines of "You got me there, Brandon.")
Earlier today, though, Romney proved all such sayers-of-nay wrong when he faced an audience-member who accused Barack Obama of treason and told her, in essence, I will tacitly agree with anything you have to say, despite all those who will think I'm weak for it…
A female supporter said Obama was operating "outside" of the Constitution, and then said, to applause, that "I do believe he should be tried for treason."
Romney then let the woman clarify what she was specifically referring to with the comment. She responded by saying it was of the Secret Service's restriction of rights to protest.
"I will be happy to look at what he has done about the Secret Service with respect to protests," Romney said, according to Talking Points Memo.
Such courage in the face of obvious and easy opportunities to show backbone!
