Gawker: Mitt Romney Declines to Correct Crazy Woman Accusing Obama of ‘Treason’


-By Max Read

May 7, 2012- What do you do when your party's base is made up of scared old white people who believe that the president is a traitor? You never, ever, ever correct them, and you talk a lot about God. Take Mitt Romney's example!

"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.

"Well, as I'm sure you do, I happen to believe the Constitution was not just brilliant but probably inspired. I happen to believe the same thing about the Declaration of Independence," said Romney. "I would respect the different branches of government if I am fortunate enough to become president."

Romney later said that "of course" he doesn't believe that Barack Obama is a traitor: "I don't correct all of the questions that get asked of me." No, of course not.
