The crazy was on parade today in Ohio before and during Mitt Romney’s town hall at a manufacturing plant, but before we get to that it should be noted that Romney was speaking at a plant that may not have existed if it weren’t for the Obama Auto Loan.
Before Mitt Romney took the stage Ohio State Auditor Dave Yost took the stage and did his best stand-up routine ripping on the President. The crowd ate it up when Yost compared the President’s Bin Laden raid to a clown selling hamburgers.
Ohio State Auditor Dave Yost: I heard all this stuff in the past couple weeks about the President claiming credit for killing Osama Bin Laden. I’m glad that he is dead. Bin Laden that is (laughter). But you know, it strikes me a little weird. That’s like giving Ronald McDonald the credit for the Big Mac you had for lunch. I mean everybody knows it’s the guy at the grill that deserves the credit. Not the pitch man on TV! (Applause)
Watching the video, it’s clear Yost fancies himself an amateur comedian and the crowd enjoyed what he said. Of course, candidate Romney has gone further, praising the President for his courageous decision to take out Bin Laden. In fact, it’s not clear that Romney would have made the same decision based on his 2007 rhetoric.
Then there was Yost’s remarks about Obama not being in touch with the middle class. And, oh yeah, one of the people questioning Romney today said the President should be tried for treason.
And then there was the thing about Mitt Romney’s foreign taxes. Not a good day for the Mitt-ster!
