To raybies 7:12 a.m. 6/18/2012Do Republicans do that to Obama? All
the time. Does it get on the news? All the time. Does Obama get hammered for
any misstep he makes? All the time. Obama, unlike Romney, has the guts to not
avoid his detractors (both people AND the media, or dn't you remember his

"Do republicans do this to Obama?"He was just heckled in the
Rose Garden. Armed protesters have shown up at his appearances. And what about
Rep. Joe "You lie!" Wilson?Does this happen to Obama? You

would be infinitely worse -- he's said he would take us back to the Bush
policies and programs, and that's what got us in this mess in the first
place. No, thanks, Romney -- don't need you, don't want you.
Who's free speech was violated? No one was threatened with jail.
Liberals believe in free speech as long as it's their free speech. De facto
censorship by disruption is their weapon. The voice of the people must be heard,
unless it disagrees with them. The Bolsheviks would have loved it.
People in the rust belt of Pennsylvania and other states need only to look to
Wisconsin instead of the Democratic Party for their road to economic prosperity!
He isn't really on the bus tour, is he? Flying between gigs? Like
everything else with Romney, what you see ain't what you get.
