Romney faces off with Iowa hecklers



The days of hiding under the Mittness Protection Program are over. Willard M. Romney faced off with an unruly crowd today at the Iowa State Fair.

One heckler repeatedly shouted at the former Massachusetts governor, demanding to know how he would strengthen programs like Social Security and Medicare. Once Romney could get a word in, he finally yelled, “If you don’t like my answer, you can go vote for someone else!”

In the same speech, he also told the crowd “corporations are people, my friend“ — a soundbite destined to haunt his campaign.
