are you guys watching this?

The crowd just heckled the crap out of Romney SO badly but with disappointing questions. It seems they were democrats who showed up to give the perceived national front runner a hard time.

They asked mostly about social security and making sure the program was not on the chopping block.

Would have been a softball for Ron Paul - he would have just said, "let's cut military spending while we find a way to make social security solvent".

ABC: Rep. Ron Paul Campaigns in Iowa With Son Sen. Rand Paul

Rep. Ron Paul Campaigns in Iowa With Son Sen. Rand Paul in Tow
By JASON VOLACK
Aug. 11, 2011

For the first time since Congressman Ron Paul announced in May that he will be running for president, he was joined on the campaign trail by his son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.

The two made four stops across Iowa on Wednesday -- speaking on how a Ron Paul presidency would be beneficial to America.

They started their day in Mason City, Iowa – but ABC News caught up with the father-son duo in Waterloo, Iowa. Ron and Rand Paul spoke to a crowd of about 50 people during a lunchtime meet and greet.

Ron Paul had an optimistic assessment of the current economic condition in America, saying that the financial turmoil is temporary. He then presented proposals for what he would do as president to correct the ship, one of which includes eliminating the capital gains tax.

committee? Don't they have anything more current?
