How disgusting and disingenuous can Romney's supporters get? Let's ask the Ohio state Auditor Dave Yost, who just introduced Romney at a town hall meeting a short time ago:

Ohio State Auditor Dave Yost took a shot at President Barack Obama for claiming credit for the killing of Osama Bin Laden in a rambling introduction of Mitt Romney at a town hall.

Yost said Obama claiming credit for the raid is like "giving Ronald McDonald credit for the Big Mac you ate for lunch," adding that "the guy at the griddle," deserves the credit.

But this class act didn't stop there:

A Romney aide, who declined to be named, distanced the candidate from the remark, saying it doesn't represent Romney's position.

Yost also attempted an impression of Obama, then castigated the president for "lecturing" the middle class.

"I'm tired of hearing [Obama] talk about the middle class as if he knows anything about us," Yost said, before criticizing the president for taking vacations while in office.

First of all I think it is funny that the Romney aide disagreeing with this view doesn't want to be named.

But I am also sure that Mr. Yost was even more outraged that former president Bush spent 487 days at Camp David and 490 days at his Texas ranch:

This is not like some CNN commentator making outrageous remarks, this is a guy introducing the guy that wants to be the next President.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
