Likely Liberal Plants Continue Heckling Romney

I don't know for sure this woman is a liberal, but her question seems to be Kos-like, in claiming that government spending of all types must be defended at any cost to keep... emergency services during hurricanes.

And she does what the previous hecklers did -- she won't let Romney answer her alleged question.

If it's a question, why isn't Romney permitted to speak three words before she begins to re-harangue him again?

Romney deals with it like he did the last one-- asking her to let him speak, which she refuses to do. I suppose he does okay, with the proviso That no one does well when a heckler is determined to not even let you answer.

This seems to be the liberals' strategy. They may be trying their own version of the Tea Party town halls (but there, the Democrats were in fact permitted to answer -- the Tea Party patriots did jeer at the answers... after they were given).

All candidates, and not just Romney, have to figure out how to deal with this. It may become necessary to simply eject questioners who refuse to let the candidate answer a question.

Candidates should perhaps begin announcing the ground rules up front: You will be permitted to ask a question. You will even be permitted to ask a follow up. But if you attempt to talk down the candidate, you'll be ejected.

That might look bad the first few times it's done, but if this is a concerted, choreographed liberal strategy, it might be the best resolution.

Oh: People really need to turn on their cell phones and cameras and pictures of these people. Would be fun to ID them as plants.
