Good catch from @justkarl.
You’ll remember that just a few days ago, Twitchy spotlighted the leftist hissyfit over Mitt Romney’s failure to denounce supporters who called President Obama a “traitor.”
Now, the U.K. Guardian reports that the same charge was thrown at Romney while President Obama spoke last weekend:
The shout from the crowd was clear. As President Barack Obama gave the first official campaign speech of his re-election bid at a sports arena in Ohio last weekend the first mention of his Republican opponent Mitt Romney prompted a male voice in the throng to yell: “Traitor!”
Earlier in the rally, held in the Ohio state capital of Columbus, several warm-up speakers for Obama had derided and mocked Romney for once using a Swiss bank account. Campaign videos played to the audience had prompted loud boos when Romney appeared or was mentioned.
Cue the chirping crickets at Obama headquarters.

.@noah_c_rothman So when this guy called Romney a 'traitor' what was Obama's reaction? Or did he just ignore it and continue?
