Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney faced a rowdy crowd at the Iowa State Fair, with people interrupting his answers to chant "Wall Street greed."

One questioner asked the GOP presidential candidate what he would do to strengthen Social Security. The voter didn't like Romney's pledge not to raise taxes, and interrupted him.

Romney pointed angrily at the crowd and told them to give him a
chance to answer. After a minutes-long exchange with Romney and the crowd shouting over each other, Romney said, "If you want to
speak, you can. But it's my turn."

As he wrapped up, he joked, "These guys up front won't be voting for me."

Romney hasn't spent as much time in Iowa as other candidates. He
visited before the Thursday evening debate in Ames.
