    "So you’re all for like, yay, freedom, and all this stuff. And yay, like pursuit of happiness. You know what would make me happy? Free birth control." - Unidentified student, Bradley University in Illinois

    "You’re looking for free stuff you don’t have to pay for? Vote for the other guy, that’s what he’s all about, OK? That’s not, that’s not what I’m all about." - Mitt Romney

    Wow, Romney stood up to an unidentified student. That's real impressive.

    At any rate, glad it's easy to sucker punch Romney and draw him into this conversation, since women by large numbers support contraception as badly as former Republican Presidential candidate Bob Dole needs Viagra.

    "Planned Parenthood? We're going to get rid of that." Mitt Romney

    Remove life saving medical tests and treatments to 3 million men, women and teenagers, every year, who would otherwise be unable to attain such care?

    Please, oh please, make that your guy's platform this election cycle. Pretty please.

    He meant government funding for the abortion mill otherwise known as Planned Parenthood, and that's another winning platform for him so I certainly hope he includes it as well. Nice to see we agree on something.

    gotta give romney credit on this one

    usually he'd just ask the student where the student is from, and then compliment that state's trees

    but this time he had a spine

    well done mitt

    He's a kid probably. And, good news, I think women's medical care will be an important issue in this election cycle. The polls I've seen show the gender gap has grown since Republican men have been debating women's reproductive rights. I don't think you realize, Wolfie, that you're a minority now. Or maybe you do, given what appears to be bitterness towards "self-entitled brats." Is Romney a self-entitled brat? During his campaign against Kennedy, his wife said he had to "chip away at his stocks" to make ends meet and that they "didn't even have wall-to-wall carpeting" while in college.

    It is always nice to have the source to make sure that it has not been edited by a news outlet or blog with an agenda..

    Could this be one of those viral emails, as the Web Site Scared Monkeys has the exact same thing... except it is from a women in Peoria.. I will list my source to avoid confusing thoughts..

    I saw this on the news last night. Video is here:

    Romney To Contraception Heckler: If You Want Free Stuff, Vote For Obama | RealClearPolitics

    Good for Romney.

    Look at what that deadbeat zombie says. "freedom this, freedom that....give me my free birth control dammit". What a country we've become. Food Stamp USA.

    Most of you already know that I think our country is pretty much doomed. Be it by financial tsunami, the exploding welfare state (corporate and social), or through our lack of personal accountability, our future isn't looking to good. This woman is a prime example of what's wrong. She wants her "free" stuff dammit. Stuff that she thinks is "free", but in reality the rest of us end up paying for. Deadbeat nation is alive and well.

    That's exactly how I felt too. Politicians always just gutlessly back down and avoid the question in these types of situations. Easier to meekly back down and fall into politi-speak than to say something that some people may actually disagree with.

    Funny how everyone always says they want strong decisive leaders, but then when a politician acts in a stong, decisive way, their opposition attacks them for it.

    telling people to vote for the other guy is "owning"?

    I don't. I wouldn't go so far as to call her mainstream, but her sentiment is held by a sizable chunk of the population. Probably more so now, than at any point in our history. In my opinion at least. I see people that think and feel like her everyday. I'm not sure where you're from, what you do, or what type of people you tend to have interaction with, but in metropolitan Boston where I am, she's a dime a dozen.

    I think that woman was a plant from the Romney campaign to make Romney look more principled...or something.

    Sizable, sure, but I'm a bit skeptical how much things have changed over time. Whenever I read anything historical, I'm struck by how often the same things we complain about now were also complained about then -- back in the good ole days.

    I'm from Boston but moved to the west coast years ago. Also switched professions recently, going from M&A to runing my own company. The one thing the move confirmed for me is how absurd two political ploys are -- both "class warfare" and the notion that "real Americans" are in the heartland / south.

    In todays day and age of scripted politics, that's not only possible, but it's probably likely.
