Heckling News: Romney Refuses Stupid Media Request To Give Commands To His Supporters As If He Were A King; Obama Hecklers Being Paid To Wave Signs

The very question is insulting. Why would Romney tell other American citizens what to do, how to exercise their First Amendment rights?

And it's egregious that the media continues imagining conservatives as unruly, needing a Strong Man on a White Horse to bring order to their chaos.

I never heard the media ask if Obama would ask Occupiers to stop shitting on police cars.

In any event, Romney refused.

Mitt Romney won’t ask his supporters to stop heckling President Obama and his surrogates at campaign events.

During a radio interview on Tuesday, the presumptive GOP nominee declined an opportunity to ask his supporters to stop, saying his campaign didn’t “believe in unilateral disarmament.”

Supporters of the president have, in return, begun heckling Romney during his five-day, six-state bus tour this week, disrupting campaign events in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

They just began this? In retaliation?

Do they own time machine?

Did they go back in time to "begin" heckling months ago?

Do they intend to only use their time machine for heckling? Couldn't a time machine be used for more important purposes?

Meanwhile, the pro-Obama hecklers heckling Romney in the present are being paid to do so.

At the candidate's afternoon stop outside a bakery in DeWitt, a group of about 15 protesters stood behind a police barricade, a few of them chanting in support of Obama. Asked why he was protesting, a man dressed in a grim reaper costume pointed a reporter to a pair of "designated representatives" standing in the shade.

"I can't talk, you gotta get one of those people over there to talk to y'all," he said. "They're the ones who can talk to reporters."

Neither of the representatives agreed to give their names, but two protesters said they were getting paid to stand outside for the rally, though the wage is unclear: one said she was getting $7.25 per hour, while another man said they were being paid $17 per hour.

Meanwhile, about 50 feet away, another protest had been organized by local Democrats in conjunction with the Obama campaign. A campaign official told BuzzFeed they had nothing to do with the other group — which he said he believed they had been sent by the labor-backed "Good Jobs Now" — and confirmed that they were being paid.

If I had a time machine, as these folks do, I would just go back 100 years, and put a single penny in the bank accounts of the paid hecklers. By now, with interest, that would be -- well, like, ten million dollars or something!

And think of all the heckling you'd do if you were paid ten million dollars (or something).

That's what I mean. This time machine just isn't being used optimally.
