Sometimes, it's not what a politician says, but what he doesn't say.
Or, at least recently for Mitt Romney, what he doesn't say soon enough.
Here's what happened. ...
Mitt was speaking at a town-hall event in Ohio on Monday when we guess what you would call a "slightly-unbalanced" woman asked him a rather un-exciting question about the three branches of the federal government -- then, she added an out-of-left-field comment that President Obama should be tried for treason.
Of course, Mitt reacted how almost anyone would react when someone with whom they're speaking seems completely normal and says something off-the-wall, then goes back to seeming normal ... he acted like it didn't happen.
Reporters pounced all over him after the event, asking him if he thinks POTUS should be tried for treason, to which he repeatedly said: "No" and "Of course, not."
Finally, someone asked Mitt why he didn't correct the woman when she asked the question.
"I don't correct all of the questions that get asked of me," Mitt explained.
Mitt, let's say what you're thinking for you: town-hall events seem to bring all the nutcases out of the woodwork.
