Okay, so Mitt Romney throws his Jacksonville campaign workers out of the room while he stands there today in a hasty news conference looking like a Very. Small. Man.

The campaign workers were not that miffed about it, but the Florida Times-Union reported the ham-handed Romney move, stating:

Politicians don’t usually kick their supporters out when they show up to support them.
But that’s what Mitt Romney did Wednesday when he showed up for a morning rally at his Mandarin office in Jacksonville.
Of course Romney after the news conference, ever the dick, made a perfunctory effort to thank his hapless supporters in Florida:
After the news conference concluded the crowd was allowed back in, and Romney briefly spoke to the people and shook hands, but didn’t mention Libya or apologize for kicking them out.
This local story already has over 91 comments from readers, about evenly divided along political lines. However, comments opposing Romney, as you might expect, are much more lucid than the wing-bat crowd. Case in point, Tabman:

This is going to turn into a disaster for Mitterand la Romney. And it will get even worse. This is now a certain question that will be thrown out in the first debate - and Obama is gong to slam this down Romney's throat. And he'll deserve the aweful whipping on it he's going to get.
Two American diplomats are dead, and at a time the country should speak with one voice, Mitt comes off looking like a protector of Terry Jones. Great choice dippy do - this is just another nail in the campaign coffin.
Watch more rats scurry off the campaign. They'll openly fight it out now - as they get ready to write their post-campaign books and cash in.
"Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro!"

How do you spell Romney? D-I-C-K.

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.
