Woman calls Obama treasonous, Romney doesn’t denounce her; Left throws a hissyfit

At an Ohio town hall event this afternoon, all hell broke loose! At least according to liberals:

After a woman told Romney she believed President Obama “should be tried for treason,” the candidate failed to condemn or even address the remark in his response. (He expressed disagreement later at the rope line, when reporters asked him about it.)

See for yourself!

Mitt Romney is so afraid if his base, he won't even say, "No, the president shouldn't be tried for treason. That's why we have elections."

Mitt Romney to CNN: "I don't agree" w/ woman who said Obama shld be tried w/ treason. "I don't correct all of the q's that get asked of me"

Don't know if it's worse that Romney failed to correct someone accusing Obama of treason… or him LAUGHING at the idea that he should've.

@BuzzFeedAndrew If Pres. Obama had heard it, he wld have addressed it. Not the same as treason woman & Romney's cowardice. False equivalency

Can you believe it? Can you??? A member of Romney’s audience suggested Obama is guilty of treason, and Romney didn’t condemn her on the spot? But when someone heckled Romney during a speech last week, calling him a “f*cking racist,” Obama immediately denounced the heckler and stuck up for his opponent. Oh, wait … *crickets chirping*

Yeah, see, that’s the thing: Barack Obama, to whom Mitt Romney has referred as a “nice guy,” certainly hasn’t swooped in to save Romney’s reputation. Obama’s minions, a group that includes the mainstream media, haven’t stepped up to the plate, either.

And conservatives weren’t about to let that slide. Conservative Twitter supastah Jon G. let the lefties have it. And he let ‘em have it good:

::gasp:: RT @BuzzFeedAndrew Romney silent as woman says Obama should be tried for treason. http://t.co/MkikS7Fk

It's not Romney's responsibility to defend Obama. That's the MSM's job.

To members of the MSM on their fainting couches…. When you Google "Bush Treason" there are 9,210,000 results.

O RLY? RT @markos Thanks to the woman who asked Romney the "treason" question, for showing Romney's cowardice in the face of his crazy base.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) May 7, 2012

Hey @Markos: When you search "Bush +Treason" on YOUR website there are 3,574 results. http://t.co/phuRKIw0

Jon wasn’t the only one swinging the hammer; others rightly called the liberals out on their hypocrisy and double standards:

Hey, MSM! Remember when Hoffa Jr. called half the country "sons of bitches" and Obama pretended it didn't happen? #tcot #p2

The treason-yeller-in-the-audience at Romney event = monstrous. Jeremiah Wright at pulpit for 20 years = crazy uncle in the attic.

The White House is demanding Romney condemn the woman who mentioned treason right after they cash Bill Maher's check.

And Frank Fleming tied it all up in a neat, beautiful bow:

BREAKING: Because Romney didn't speak up, the president has been tried and executed for treason.
