    It's from 2007 but still relevant as he's a presidential candidate.

    Regardless of anyone's stance on a political issue the way he treated that man is completely disgusting. It clearly demonstrates that if you don't share his beliefs he will show you absolutely no respect. I don't care what your political affiliation is, that's not a "quality" anyone should look for in a leader.

    You should send that clip to the "Liberal" US media outlets.

    MSNBC, CNN etc.

    Even send it to Fox News just to see what response you get.

    I believe it was me who said that once Romney's skeletons came out, he'd be sunk. In the last few days we've seen what a douchebag this guy truly is.

    In this clip he seems like a caricature of a slick "politician."

    That video only shows part of the story, 5 minutes later he tells another guy in a different wheelchair that he's for medical marijuana.

    That's the way he always comes off. That's what happens when you've changed your stance on virtually every position he ran on before.

    I think Mitt has distain for everybody.

    The fact that he was a hedge fund manager should tell you something.

    Mitt Romney is a joke. It saddens me that he seems to be on his way to being the Republican candidate. If that occurs hopefully an independent emerges from the secret land of reality that we can all vote for.

    Conservatives who decide to become one-issue-voters over marijuana have just one option - Ron Paul. And he has about the same chance of getting elected as Dennis Kucinic.
