A dozen or so demonstrators, watched over by a lone police officer, taunted the Romney supporters, waving a giant check for $250,000 made out to "Millionaires" and signed by Mr. Romney. "We don't want a Bain economy!" they shouted. "Outsource Romney!"
Mitt Romney supporters followed their candidate's lead by showing their disdain for some of our most vulnerable citizens. They didn't write off 47% of the country, but by shouting "Go get food stamps!" at the gathered crowd, they cruelly insulted the nearly 50 million Americans, including 16 million children, who live much of their lives - at school, at work, as they go to bed each night - hungry.
As part of his swing through Ohio yesterday, Mitt Romney stopped at a high school in the Columbus area. Reporter Marc Kovac posted video from the scene outside, where a group of Obama supporters chanted "Romney, go home!" A few of the Romney supporters answered with some version of "Go get food stamps!"
With 40 days until the election -- and counting -- Obama has been leading in the polls by eight to 10 points.
