It's Not the Job of GOP Candidates To School Audiences On How to Respond

On this issue I agree with Mitt:
Mitt Romney said that though he disagrees with some of the audience booing that’s happened at Republican debates — including of a gay soldier two weeks ago in Orlando — he doesn’t believe he should be the one to stop it.

“I think we can hear the boos,” Romney told the Union Leader of Manchester, N.H., Monday, in an a 70-minute interview broadcast on C-SPAN. “I would tell you that in these debates there has been a lot of booing and a lot of applause. Cheering and booing. Some of which I don’t agree with. Now I have not made it my practice to scold the audience and say, ‘I disagree with this person, I agree with that person,’ because it goes in a lot of different directions. I don’t recall with this soldier whether people were booing his question or just booing him.”
The GOP candidates are not responsible for wacky reactions from members of the crowd. They have no control over what those people are thinking...if they're thinking...when they respond.
