Mitt Romney Gets Booed And Heckled While Delivering A Speech At The Utah GOP Convention, Then Snaps At Delegates, Saying, ‘Aren’t You Embarrassed?’

(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – Sen. Mitt Romney did not get the reaction he was hoping for when he delivered a speech at the Utah Republican Convention, as he was loudly booed and heckled by delegates during the event held in West Valley City.

According to Gateway Pundit, Derek Brown, chairman of the Utah Republican Party, stepped up and tried to calm the crowd, but it was to no avail. They kept right on with the heckling.

“@SenMikeLee says when he’s feeling low, he’s buoyed up by the Utah GOP delegates. He thanks them for who they are and what they do. “I like Mike!” I hear a man shout. He leaves the stage to cheers,” said KSTU reporter Ben Winslow on Twitter.

“@SenatorRomney is getting boo’d loudly at the @UtahGOP convention. @fox13 #utpol #utgop,” Winslow continued.

“@UTGOPChair just had to intervene and tell the crowd to show respect. It has now turned to heckling as @SenatorRomney tries to continue with his speech. @fox13 #utpol #utgop, the reporter tweeted.

“As @SenatorRomney pivots to criticizing Biden, he gets applause. He notes he was the GOP nominee for President of the United States. There is a man in the Box Elder Co. delegation who is shouting so loudly a woman walked up to him to tell him to be quiet. @fox13 #utpol #utgop,” Winslow posted.

“OK, a group of people just walked up to that delegate and appeared to tell him to shut up. I can still hear delegates heckle @SenatorRomney as he goes through his speech. “We need to come together in strength and unity,” he says, wrapping up. More boos. @fox13 #utpol #utgop,” he continued.

While it didn’t seem like the Mitt Romney Fan Club was in attendance, not everyone at the event booed Romney.

“Thank you @SenatorRomney for your leadership! As a state delegate, I am sorry for the loud few who do not represent the majority of the @UtahGOP. #utpol’” Andy Pierucci posted on Twitter.

There were over 1,900 delegates from the GOP who were in attendance during the event over the weekend. The vast majority of this crowd booed Romney.

This caused Romney to reply with, Aren’t you embarrassed?” This was a very poor attempt to deflect all of the boos that welcomed him onto the stage.

“I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,” the failed presidential candidate and current senator said as delegates tried to shout him down. Many folks feel betrayed by Romney and have let him know so without much in the way of hesitation. People refer to him as a “traitor” and “communist” often.

People out in the audience booing Romney only stopped after party chair Derek Brown got up to the mic and chastised the crowd and ordered them to “show respect” for Romney.

“You can boo all you like,” Romney stated. “I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012.”

Well his record kind of proves that he’s not much of a Republican or a conservative, especially since he supported the impeachment of former President Donald Trump and even created a government run health care program for Massachusetts when he was governor.

Not much of either one of those seems to line up well with conservative values.

It’s time for Romney to take a hike.
