Mitt Romney has his eyes on the presidency of the United States and is currently the front runner for the Republican nomination in 2012, got some unfriendly comments from a crowd today in Iowa.
A heated exchange transpired when the topic of social security arose. “If you don’t like my answer, you can vote for someone else,” he noted to the hecklers. “I’m not going to raise taxes. That’s my answer. If you want someone that will raise taxes, vote for Barack Obama.”
Romney battled the hecklers, a common thing in his last campaign that has returned, and he seemed more composed this time around. “Corporations are people, my friend,” he noted. “Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes?”
Romney has been in the role of frontrunner before. We will have to see if he can capitalize on it this time around. So far, so good.
