Media reports said the heckler was associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Romney was asked about the Obama campaign’s charges during the question and answer period, but partially sidestepped, focusing instead on his previous critique of Obama openly acknowledging that he would travel into Pakistan, if necessary, to capture Bin Laden.
The Obama campaign has pointed out that in 2007, Romney said “it’s not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.”
“It was naïve of the president to announce he would go into Pakistan,” Romney said. Romney went on to say “many people” at that time shared that view and that while “we reserve the right to go where we feel is appropriate” to capture terrorist leaders, he didn’t believe it was well-advised to advertise that fact.
