Sauce for the Goose

In a bizarre admission, Romney acknowledged his campaign sent hecklers to Boston last week to disrupt a rally led by Obama campaign senior strategist David Axelrod to highlight Romney's economic record as governor. “Most of the events I go to, or many of the events I go to, there are large groups of, if you will, Obama supporters there heckling me,” Romney told reporters, even though there is no evidence of that. “And at some point you say, ‘You know what, sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.’ If they’re going to be heckling us, why we’re not going to sit back and play by very different rules.”
