    I'd be booing too, because his war mungering father doesn't think that the well to do should sacrifice their live in war like us regular folks should.

    Having watched a longer version of this video, you left out the part where Josh Romney finished his speech and received applause. Then he came back and tried to instruct the delegates to vote for his father's slate. That is a violation of convention rules (no campaigning allowed) and that resulted in boos from a few. Once again, a media spin to portray Ron Paul and his supporters in the worst possible light.

  4. The Greedy Old Pigs declared class war on US!

    LOL! I thought the GOBP cult claimed that families should be "off limits." Maybe they should also be "off the campaign trail."

    I'm not a republican, nor do I support Mitt Romney, in actuality I like Ron Paul more than Romney, however this is blatantly offensive and I hate that people would actually go and boo someone of stage... if you don't like Romney why go to one of his rallies and boo? All this is going to do is shine a negative light on you and those like you. It's really sad that the political environment is so toxic nowadays. I really wish common sense in politics would make a comeback. One can dream I suppose...

    Five sons and not one has made any sacrifice for our country, I'd boo him too. There are people who have sacrificed two sons and their father, I'd say this Romney needs to stop bragging about a stay at home job to raise their children.

    The sensationalized tweet that Josh was booed off the stage is disinformation. Hats off to Josh! He hung in there and finished what he wanted to say, even with the boisterous few booing away. CNN political unit should not have included the video link to this.... LOL It looked like there were only 6 six people there booing and they looked very much like Occupy protesters. Not so much like Ron Paul supporters.

  11. GROVER NORQUIST IS A ENEMY OF THE STATE/ConservaFASCISTS

    I bet Willard and company thought they were going to sweep Ron Pual supporters under the rug. Wrong! They were actually calling Willard the "white Obama." I take that as insult. The President doesn't change positions no where near as many times as his flip flopping opponent.

    About time! All of those kids and not one of them has joined the military. Now I know why Mittens is so War Hungry. His Brady Bunch won't have to fight in any part of his proposed Wars.

    Paul's supporters tend to be people too inexperienced to understand the fallacy in his half-baked ideas – yet they condiser everyody else completely lacking in common sense. Romney's supporters tend to be puppets of the fat-cats who steam-rolled Paul and the others with their money w/o offering any actual platform at all. This is a bad combination of fools.

    Again the Paul supporters showing no class. I got an idea you dont like it then vote for Paul or Obama. But do us normal citizens a favor and shut up.

    Don't blame it on OWS. this was republican delegate meeting. people are just rude and obnoxious anymore; but yet demand tolerance for themselves. They don't have to be part of a protest to be obnoxious. all it takes anymore is to be part of a mob mentality – and any mob will do.

    Romneys SONS ? they are privilaged children who have never did a hard days work.They didn't serve in the Military or Reserves.They all went to Ivey League schools,( Big Bucks ).If they think the average hard working middle class guy is going to relate to them , their nuts. The majority of the people of this country look at the Romney Family as disconnect and out of touch.When you have a man like Romney saying he's not concerned with the poor and let the houseing market collapse and it will re-bound when it's suppose to.And the middle class pay more taxes and the wealthy pay less taxes? That is exactly whats not going to fly.For that alone will be the demise of his running for POTUS.The poor & the middle class are finished with always paying the price for Wars, Financial catasphories and everything else.This country has to be balanced and the POTUS is doing just that.It's something that has to be done and it's the right thing to do for everybody. ,

  23. Obama 2012 - BEND Forward America, take another 4 long years of FAILURE

    People who interfere or try to block others from speaking at events are simply unAmerican fascists. They need to be removed from the event for the exchange of ideas and information cannot and will not be blocked. They have no right to force themselves on people. Enough is enough. Act civil or take your stupidity elsewhere.

    This is why I could never consider supporting Ron Paul. His supporters defin the kind of man he really is.
