Huffington Post: Barack Obama Accused Of Treason At Mitt Romney Town Hall


-By Sam Stein

May 7, 2012- An awkward moment occurred at Mitt Romney's town hall event in Cleveland, Ohio on Monday when an audience member, in the process of asking him a question, asserted that President Barack Obama should be tried for treason. Romney remained silent during the question-and-answer session, only to say that he "of course" did not agree with the sentiment while greeting voters after the event.

The incident nevertheless illustrated what seems likely to be a tricky proposition for Romney as the general election season progresses: balancing the anti-Obama sentiments of the party's base with the need to maintain a civil level of discourse.

"We have a president right now that is operating outside the structure of our Constitution," the audience member said to applause. "And I want to know -- yeah, I do agree he should be tried for treason -- but I want to know what you would be able to do to restore balance between the three branches of government and what you are going to be able to do to restore our Constitution in this country."

Romney didn't correct the woman, choosing instead to address the question she posed.
