Is what's sauce for the goose also sauce for the gander? In RomneyWorld, not so much:

Presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney's "Every Town Counts" bus tour made a slight detour from its planned route through eastern Pennsylvania after over 100 protestors affiliated with the Obama campaign and MoveOn.org showed up at a gas station where he was scheduled to stop.
Ed Rendell, the former Democratic governor of Pennsylvania and an Obama supporter, also showed up at the scheduled stop - a Wawa gas station in Quakertown. The Romney campaign had sent advance staff to the location, but as the number of protestors grew, they decided to find a quieter location.
Just because they're from MoveOn doesn't make them affiliated with the actual campaign, though it's nice of CBS to conflate the two. It's telling that President Obama went ahead and delivered his speech, unfazed by the frat boy antics of official campaign workers. But have some protestors (Freedom of Speech, what a quaint notion) and Romney goes running.
