Romney heckled by Occupy protesters before New Hampshire primary, fights back

“How about, instead of shouting, why don’t you say what you mean? " Romney told the protesters.

Mitt Romney normally avoids engaging hecklers at campaign stops, but fought back against Occupy protesters in New Hampshire on Monday before the state’s important primary election.

Romney stated President Obama is going to spend more than any other candidate to win the White House again when Occupy protesters complained about campaign finance reform.

“Who’s the president who’s spending more money to campaign than any in the history of America?” Romney asked to cheers from his supporters. “The answer is that this president is spending money and has spent money. You know what this president has been the first president to throw aside the public funding program and break all those barriers and to spend massively more than any president in history.”

“I get the chance to see these guys who come out here to protest and now and then I ask them, ‘Tell me, what would you replace America with, what kind of system would you have?’ They don’t know. And the truth is, there has never been any place on Earth that has freed people from poverty like free enterprise American style,” Romney said.

Police eventually escorted the protesters out after Romney said to them, “you had your turn, now it’s my turn…” .
