Speaking to a group of supporters in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday night alongside his newly selected running mate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Mitt Romney was heckled by a protester in the audience. But Romney took the opportunity to forcefully shout down the protester and admonish him for his lack of respect and civility.
As Romney began addressing the seriousness of America’s unemployment rate, he was shouted down by a group of protesters in the audience. Romney supporters in attendance immediately responded to the hecklers with chants of “U.S.A., U.S.A.”
“You see, young man, this group here is respectful of other people being heard,” Romney shot back at the protester. “And you ought to find yourself a different place to be disruptive because here we believe in listening to people with dignity and respect.”
Romney said that President Barack Obama aims to make this the “lowest, meanest, negative campaign in history.”
“Mr. President, take your campaign out of the gutter,” Romney said. “Let’s talk about the real issues that America faces.”
