Mitt Promises Tit-for-Tat – Will Send His Supporters to Obama Rallies …Then He Does It (Video)

Mitt Makes Promise – Then Follows Through
Last week Barack Obama sent his campaign supporters down to a Romney event in Philadelphia to protest.

In response to this, Mitt Romney promised reporters today, “If the president wants to send his supporters to my rally, we’ll show him that we have the same capacity as he does.”

And Mitt delivered.
Romney supporters met Obama senior strategist David Axelrod at his anti-Romney event in Massachusetts.

The Caucus Blog reported:

Loud and rowdy supporters of Mitt Romney in Boston drowned out an attempt by President Obamacampaign’s top strategist to attack the former Republican governor on his home turf.

In a morning news conference on the steps of the Massachusetts Statehouse, David Axelrod, one of Mr. Obama’s senior strategists, tried mostly in vain on Thursday to level Mr. Obama’s latest broadside on Mr. Romney’s record as governor of the state.

Instead, he was booed, heckled and chanted down by supporters of Mr. Romney who refused to let up even for a moment as Mr. Axelrod and Democratic state lawmakers sought to make their case. The group included several staff members in his Boston headquarters, including an aide’s dog wearing a Romney T-shirt.

With cameras rolling, the Republican hecklers yelled “We Want Mitt!” and “Broken Record!” and held signs that said “Go Back to Chicago!” Mr. Axelrod appeared bemused but rattled by them, at one point saying: “You can shout down speakers my friends, but it’s hard to Etch A Sketch away the truth.”

More… John Hinderaker added this on the Romney strategy, via Instapundit: These aren’t your father’s Republicans. “One of the most heartening aspects of the early stages of the presidential race has been the Romney campaign’s aggressiveness. Nothing discourages activists more than getting out front of a candidate who, it later turns out, isn’t willing to do what it takes to win. A number of Republicans of recent years could be said to fit that description, most recently John McCain. But not Mitt Romney.”

    I’m glad to see Romney go out to the empty Solyndra, the Solar Company To Nowhere.

    I’ve emailed just over 20 people about the Solyndra Scandal that was pushed by Obama. Get the word out to others you know, this is a major story the Alinsky Media still wants to downplay, and cover up.

    Bain Capital? Smack. That’s gonna hurt. War on Women? Smack. That’s gonna leave a mark. Dispatching domestic agitators to harass his Presidential opponent? Smack. We’ll do it and do it better.

    Can’t run on your record. Can’t run on the fictional social issues of Mitt takes that off the table. Can’t run on foreign policy since you’re both hated in the world for your creepy drone-killing, Bin Laden bragging behavior and your general incompetence in everything else.

    Where are you going to run to, Barry? $100 says its Choom and more fund raising escapism with the Hollywood parasites.

    I forgot where I read this, but it seems that Obie has done more fundraising than his past four or five predecessors combined.

    It seems running the country in a responsible manner plays second fiddle to keeping the Democrat Party flush with donor cash. Truly disgusting.

  • Woody Pfister

    AxelSchmuck actually tried to claim Romney “was a drive by governor on his way to run for Presient.” Wow, even for AxelSchmuck that is shameless!

  • American Woman

    This is how you must deal with Progressive scum like Axelrod, who spearheaded Obama’s 2008 run for the Presidency. Everything they do, give it back to them only double it.
    Tit for tat, only worse.

    Axelrod bemused? This scum is responsible for saddling the United States of America with a commie-loving Socialist, who works to destroy our way of life and is enjoying every minute of doing it.

    We don’t need to look to the Middle East to find our enemies. They are sitting in the White House, the State Department, and the Department of Justice. The whole Obama entourage needs to be tried for treason.

    I spit on Axelrod and the whole evil cabal.

    What did Obama say about his foes?? Punch back twice as hard?? I honestly do wonder if Obama isn’t a bit surprised by the Romney campaigns willingness to take the fight to him. He is so used to the slavering media treatment that he hasn’t developed a thick skin. I hope he is surprised and squirming in his short pants.

  • VOM

    Romney is wise to channel the late, great Breitbart — punch back TWICE AS HARD!

  • crackermike

    I’m starting to get pleasantly surprised at Romney. He doesn’t appear to be deathly afraid of Obama as was McCain. McCain would NEVER have allowed his supporters to counter heckle Obama. Instead he would have chastised them and apologized to Obama. Romney IS gonna win, everybody is starting to sense it. It’s becoming ok to ridicule Obama in public now as the raaacism charge has become a tired old cliche.

  • Nomad

    Colonel Tom Parker David Axelrod never looked worse. Totally unprepared for this. But I especially love watching the faces of all the smug tools around him as they realize this isn’t going so well.

    Romney spoke from the closed Solyndra plant, today. That was brilliant.

    Romney was not my favoded choice, but he’s the GOP candidate, now. If he doesn’t fold up faster than a chair (like Juan McRINO) John McCain, he just might be the next POTUS.

  • VOM

    When will MSM and Congress go after Corzine??! He ‘lost’ $1B, but because he bundles bucks for BHO he seems immune to even cursory investigation.

    It would be poetic if a third-party signed a six-month lease for the Solyndra building(s), sublet it to the Romney campaign, then Romney, with great fanfare, announces:
    (a) Solyndra building is the headquarters of his attempt to win California
    (b) replace the “O” in Solyndra with the Obama logo except a red slash through it
    (c) offer tours of the marvelous Solyndra HQ (charge admission)
    (d) have photos from first Staples HQ hanging throughout to illustrate the differences

    Major roadside advertising possibility due to the freeway that run right by the Solyndra building.

  • richard40

    I remember a lot of people in the primary were worried that Romney would politely lay down for Obama just like McCain. But it looks like Romney is showing some real fight. The Romney campaign has also shown that they have a very good fast response team to Obama attacks, not only effectively answering them, but turning them back to bite Obama. I am now really beginning to beleive that Romney has what it takes to win. And the Obama team, too used to a compliant media, and a wimpy opponent, is starting to fall apart now that they are faced with a real challenge.

  • john b

    what’s truly sad about the “supporters” Barack sent to Romney’s rally in Philly is this:

    The Mayor of Philly –Democrat — led it. Isn’t Philly a LARGE city? Is this the best Nutter could do on this day? His city has been run for over 50 years by the Democrat Machine – and he is one of them. Yet, Philly is ranked 2nd in dirtiness and 1st in racial crime.

    Yes, Democrat Mayor Nutter, protest Romney. Because YOU are doing a crappy job.

OR do you mean the videos where he says he is going to bankrupt caol co.s and skyrocket elec. rates? Or do you mean where (in at least 5 videos) he declares to union folks he wants single govt. payer? Or do you mean where in his debates against Hillary/Silk Pony he says he is against a health care mandate?

    Truth, they don’t even know what truth is, they think their talking points are truth. just call them socialist to their face and see what happens, (spit,caugh,choke,turn red) it’s quite enjoyable!!
    They have told so many lies,they can’t remember what they have said to cover the lie from before. Anybody but obama.

  • Esperanto

    Nomad, you make an important point. It’s got to absolutely suck to be Axelrod. He’s gotta be up there thinking “I didn’t sign up for this ****. That poseur teleprompter-reading Harvard equal opportunity lightweight joint-stealing Choom-mother isn’t worth all of this.”

    They could have had Hillary and another four more years. But they got greedy and went for the Communitarian non-revolution now. I guess Soros was afraid the country wouldn’t last another four years before the Ponzi global debt bubble he and all the other elites had constructed imploded. Hillary might have even thrown his ass in jail; like her husband, she’ll throw an ally in jail (or worse, as Vince Foster has been known to say) if it served her cause. But Soros and clan couldn’t control Hillary.

    Now they can’t even manage to get the nihilist narcissist Choom-in-Chief off the damn golf course, and all his Czars are turning out to be either useless academic idealists or small-time radicals who are only good at smashing windows, terrorizing Jews and terrifying the middle class. No wonder MoveOn has been getting its strategic direction from those two thugs who are putting out the “peace orders” against bloggers only to entrap them and get some beclowned senile judge to throw people in jail for exercising constitutionally protected speech.

  • Befuddled

    When has a campaign manager gotten a press corp at his beck and call for a speech?He’s certainly not the president nor is he an elected official.Not even Tebow’s jock strap handler could make the press converge on him like they did Axelrod.Everday this Pravda press agency outdoes itself.This is still not Russia,and your man in office isn’t Putin.

    As far as Obama, Romney hasn’t made the big push in the media about special interest groups and Obama.The media are going to sit on their hands unless he calls them out.It isn’t about bad investments in alternative energy alone. It’s about political malfeasance.With Solyndra,Obama was giving away $500 million for a $50,000 campaign donation. That’s not the worst part. While Solyndra was going under, Obama was lining up government agencies to buy $500 million of Solyndra panels.Not only would that be a ROI of 2 million percent,but it would’ve been the bank robbery of the century.Spain made the same gamble on alternative energy and that is sinking them today.Spain is in the same socialist/green energy barrel as Obama is. However the big story isn’t about just gambling away our money, it’s about political corruption and the wasteful spending Obama has gotten away with.

    That’s the problem with lies – the more told, the more difficult it is keeping track of what was said to whom. And with every single word going into the record nowadays, one little inconsistency and BLAMO! Busted.

    Then again, these are Democrats; being caught lying is not a reason to feel shame, even lying under oath.

    Exactly. McCain wouldn’t have the balls to do what Romney did. The media would have asked McCain to apologize twice.He would have done it 5 times without being prompted.I am sensing a different campaign.

    john b: Do you think Axelrod tipped their hand? It sure as hell sounds as if they’re coming out with the next thing being “Mitt Romney: Etch-a-Sketch.”

    Please God, *PLEASE* let our enemies be this stupid. Boomerang Barry needs another toss to come flying back and knock his ceiling-smoke-sucking ass on the ground. May he initiate another meme, another message for the masses, that can be stolen, hacked, reprogrammed and reappropriated by the Romney campaign (which, for those not versed in information theory, is exactly what the campaign is doing, recognizing the “news media” is nothing more than a message production machine for the Democratic party. This is how you use this apparatus against itself).

    Please bring up Etch-a-Sketch. I’d expect the Romney campaign is loaded for bear on videos and messages about the blank-slate teleprompter bumbler-in-chief. You know, the former hard drinking, joint-stealing druggie who has to have other people put words in his otherwise empty head? The guy who has been proudly described as a blank slate not only by his fawning media, but by… himself?

    ‘In the prologue to the second of his autobiographies, “The Audacity of Hope,” Barack Obama said: “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”‘ ( )

    Barack Obama is the Master of All Etch-A-Sketches. Please Axelrod, pretty please, toss this boomerang!

  • Multitude

    More Etch-a-Sketch Barry:

    “Obama’s appeal comes not from the things he says, but from who is saying them,” fawned columnist Froma Harrop during the campaign. Gosh, Barry lets other people sketch him out.

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said President Obama “no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” He’s a safe Harvard-educated man. No wait! Shake!!! Now he’s speakin’ them negro-dialects and showin his Kenyan…er… southern roots.

    Speaking of Kenyans… he’s a Kenyan-born, Hawaiian writer. Oh shoot. No, shake that baby up and reset. Good heavens, he’s running for President and we can’t have that up there anymore, can we?

    Blank screen. Awaiting your projection, or the scrawling of a teleprompter, etching a temporary image into your mind, only to be erased when convenient. Those college grades? Erased. Choom Gang? Erased (well, sort of until someone dug that up again). High school and college boyfriends and girlfriends? Erased. Bill Ayers and Papa Ayers? “Just some fellow in the neighborhood… ” Erased. Radical Communist and man-boy creep Uncle Frank Marshall Davis? Erased.

    This could get fun, but it won’t go anywhere if it’s not first initialized by the media machine via talking points. That said, I’m gonna go pop some popcorn and enjoy how the manufactured media is getting repeatedly pwned.

  • cajun2

    I read Gateway Pundit daily but rarely comment. Probably wont be back. There are articles about the hypocritical left in the media then I see an ad for signing a petition to get rid of Mitt Romney next to an ad for donations to Gateway Pundit. Below that is an ad to donate to the campaign for Alan Grayson. Cajun is confused.

  • mcc

    Greta today on her show talked with someone about how this all played out…last night Republicans happened to get wind of this event and got together to reciprocate the courtesies extended by Team BO.

    It’ll have to be others like Axelrod who get the treatment, since BO has so much security. But hopefully there won’t be any more need.

    Romney kept his Solyndra event under wraps. It wasn’t until the reporters were on the bus that they were told where they were going. That allowed him to have the uninterrupted, successful message in front of the closed down plant.

    I’m very impressed with Romney’s team. He’s in it to win it. Thank God. As Ann Romney said, “Mitt must win this. It’s too important for our nation’s future.” (Or something like that.)

  • Multitude

    cajun2: Ads are usually automated. Set up your own blog and sign on to some of the ad services (to try to offset some of the significant costs you bear creating and maintaining such a blog; it’s why I am here so often and don’t have my own blog).

    But think about your question a bit more deeply… those media companies who run the advertising are often not neutral. I’ve been shocked at some of the ads I see pop up that are diametrically opposed to the blog I’m on. Then again, I have a lot of friends involved in Occupy, associated with Marxist politics (but fearful of the fascist Obama, whom I’m pleased to say an increasing number of Marxists are recognizing his true anti-American fascist globalist colors). What may have happened is that you may be a diverse reader too, and the hidden cookies that track every site you visit and report back to the ad companies decided to give you something quite incoherent.

    Learn about cookies and how you’re being manipulated in ad messages when you have a chance. It’s not Jim’s fault in this case; he’s just trying to offset some costs. Hope you’re ok with that.

    Some commentators, including the Instapundit, have remarked on Axelrod’s being caught flat-footed by the Romney campaign’s ability to counterpunch. I’m not. Being a lifelong Chicagoan (and there’s much, much more to the city than its politics, thank God), I know that it’s a one-party state. The guys in power keep power by gaming the system (vide Jack Ryan or Blair Hull): they almost never have to meet a real opponent in an open, fair fight. Axelrod is being caught with his pants around his ankles because he’s a novice at this game.

    I hope Mittens keeps the gas turned high: as soon as he lets up and starts playing by the rules, he’s toast.

  • So it looks like Mitt’s no McCain. Thank God!

    Like other commenters, I too am becoming pleased with Romney.

    1. Romney sent a clear message with this protest, “you want to fight with fire, I’m bringing napalm”. It will be interesting to see the Obama campaign’s response. It would be stupid of them to ramp it up, because Romney has clearly indicated he will fight fire with fire and it gives him more positive publicity without helping Obama. If Obama’s team backs down, I will lay odds that Romney will too. It is smart tactics. Either way Romney wins.

    2. This tactic Romney just used also tells me that he will have no problem using tough tactics in foreign policy if necessary. I am all for that, especially after watching Obama and his wimp foreign policy. Bullies, whether at home or around the world, only understand one thing. You may take some licks, but if you don’t smack a bully, he/she will keep it up. Omama and his supporters are a bunch of bullies here at home (not to the rest of the world). Romney figuratively smacked the bully with this demonstration. I much prefer civility, but I know when it is time to strike back. I think Romney has demonstrated he understands this also.

    I enjoyed hearing Romney say that Obama deserves a grade of “F” across the board. No couching the comment, just a bold statement.

    That is in stark contrast to John “Wimpy” McCain in 2008, inexplicably saying that we had nothing to fear from Obama.

    The first time I ever heard of Mitt Romney was when he was called in to fix the scandal-plagued Utah Winter Olympics back in 2002. He must have done a masterful job. Those Olympic games were some of the most successful in history, and the organizing committee ended up with a surplus when Romney was done:

    Let’s keep it simple, down to three words:

    Breitbart Is Here.

    It took too much time and loss, but we FINALLY learned to break their dishonest “gentlemen’s agreement” when we were the only ones who had to be “gentlemen.” For half of forever, we’ve had the truth and they’ve had the chutzpah. Now we have the truth AND the chutzpah, and the game is changing fast. As I’ve read on two other blogs to date: “Alinsky, you magnificent bastard, we read your book!”

    Be Breitbart, and be unafraid!

  • crackermike

    Correct, Romney showed how to run those previously scandalized games, His business sense won the day. I’m actually eagerly awaiting Obama’s next attack because Romney has proven to be an able counterpuncher, not to good in iniating attack, but damn good in reversing it. He’ll have no shortage of opportunities because Obama knows only name calling and personal attack. Very soon, Obama will devolve to the bottom, attacking Romney with press assistance on religion even as the press covers up Rev Wright, and Obama’s quite successful Madrassa career in Indonesia. Remember when H. Clinton mentioned Obama’s madrassa and he and the press called her an outright liar, said he NEVER attended madrassa. Another one down Orwell’s memory hole.

  • Finally a Republican candidate who will stand up to the Democrats. Few have in my 67 years on earth. Rep. Allen West is another. So far from all I have read, Obama continues to lie and Romney uses facts to dismantle the Obama message and Romney stays on message regardless of the blast he gets from the Obama campaign. I am so surprised he is so proactive, but I am loving every minute of it. Romney’s tactics will light the fires under the TEA Party activists like me, who were not sure about Mitt.

    I remember that moment clearly. I felt like the country had slipped into a bizarro dimension.
    Another was when the lady said to McCain that Obama was a muslim or sth like that, and McCain said no he’s a good and decent American (obviously not quoting here).
    It was sickening. It was almost like the mask slipped and McCain revealed that he was shilling for Obama.

    Like almost everybody here, Romney wasn’t my first choice, but the more I see of their family, the old videos, their history, etc. the more I like the whole family.

    The stark contrast of the young Romneys (happy, content, ambitious, living the dream) to the young Obamas (angry, entitled, seeking the lowest rung of society to commiserate with) makes me wonder how anybody could still vote for Obama in November.

    I for one am glad romney will do anything to win. Its about time our party did what is necessary – lie, cheat, whatever it takes! When mitt was gov. of Mass., “his 2008 energy policy platform called for a “dramatic increase” in “federal spending on research, development, and demonstration projects that hold promise for diversifying our energy supply.” Among those projects were “bringing clean energy technology to market through commercialization of large-scale renewables.” He then gave millions of dollars to companys run by his campaign donors – who later defaulted, leaving taxpayers holding the bill (Acusphere and Spherics Inc.) Democrats are too stupid to realize that everything romney accuses Pres. Obama of doing, he has already done himself! mitt has even taken money from Solyndra lobbyist Alex Mistri of the Glover Park Group. What a smart businessman.

But bidders were only given 4 weeks to put in their bids so no one but the crony, with advance knowledge, was able to get money together and put in a verified bid.

    I keep thinking back to the Pubbie Primary debate where Newt singed the feathers of the MSM moderator and the reaction he got from the crowd. Maybe lessons were learned during that long and nasty primary that will be taken forward into the campaign. I will feel better about sending my hard earned cash to a team that will actually fight to win and not be spent on the powder puff treatment. Keep up the good work. “Rules for Radicals” can be applied both ways.

    Lots of people complained about how nasty the GOP primary races were, but as you point out maybe a lot of hard-won lessons were learned that could have been taught any other way.

    I’m still not enthralled with Mitt yet. McCain was aggressive during the primaries and until the actual convention. He wimped out when it became obvious he’s be running against Barry. Having an aggressive patriot in the VP spot in the person of Ms. Palin sure didn’t help energize the man either.

    If Mitt stays on the attack all the way through the election and wins, then I will be glad, very glad, to eat crow and humble pie for being wrong.

    Axelrod…this idiot should be selling used cars in the inner-city instead of getting a voice in the media.

    FU Axelrod!!! May the negativity you have thrust upon us come flowing back on you and drown you in despair. By the way – lose the 1978 porn mustache…you look like a complete tool!

    This stinks! It’s all David Axelrod’s fault!

    Axelrod was supposed rig all public appearances! He can’t even rig his own! I have paid him millions and he still sucks!

    I might as well hand over my campaign to Hillary. She is a better person. In fact, I am starting to wish I had never started this crappy campaign.

    My limousine is over-heating and my cronies crumbling. Sure, I almost bankrupted America. But, I need four more years to get it done. Good day.

    I too am impressed with the “cool”, swift response by the Romney campaign. And I think part of what many of us were afraid of (timidity, etc) was the Romney strategy of NOT over-exposing the Candidate. The guy is quintessential “executive” and reassuringly an adult (vs. the narcissistic juvenile fundraiser-in-chief). I expect Romney to become more fleshed out starting end of June, July…

    nitwit 77. Can’t take it when your opponent hits back huh? Maybe you guys should have kept “Rules for Radicals” secret for a thousand years kinda like the Chinese did Sun Tzu’s book. From this point on, politics just ain’t gonna give you that same ole thrill.

    Notwithstanding the Soulandraw calamity, I’m aggravated (but not surprised) why we don’t here/read much about the Fisker/Karma example of ObamaPolicyGoneAwry.

    Ed Klein: We Don’t Need Mainstream Media Any More

    Ed Klein’s blockbuster new book about President Obama is No. 1 on the New York Times’ list of best-sellers for the second straight week, despite being ignored by virtually the entire “mainstream media.”

    And veteran journalist Klein tells Newsmax that the success of his book “The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House” proves that “you don’t need the mainstream media anymore” to reach the American public.

    Klein’s book is buttressed by nearly 200 interviews with people close to Obama, and features explosive disclosures about one of the most secretive White Houses.

    Editor’s Note: Donald Trump Says The Amateur is ‘Best Book’ on How Obama Is ‘Wrecking Country’.
