Mitt Romney to Joe Wilson-Inspired Heckler: ‘I Approve That Comment!’
Former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.)’s Free and Strong America PAC put his speech to Values Voters online before he began speaking: the whole thing is here. But there was some back-and-forth that isn’t in that transcript.
“He lies!” shouted a friendly heckler, paying tribute to Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C). Romney laughed as the crowd cheered.
“I approve that comment!” said Romney, smiling and pointing to the heckler.
The likely 2012 presidential candidate also paid fulsome tribute to the Tea Party movement.
