Mitt Romneybot likes to keep his distance from the little folks (Brian Snyder/Reuters)
So Mitt Romney stages a campaign event inside an Iowa restaurant ... but couldn't be bothered
to take the time to introduce himself to the restaurant's owner's:
Romney held a roundtable discussion at the restaurant prior to his talk in the park. His staff and security ushered Bauer and her husband Earl to a back portion of the restaurant and they were unable to meet the former Massachusetts governor, Dianne Bauer said.
The restaurant has hosted other candidates, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who introduced himself.
“The Secret Service said they would ask to make sure we got to be introduced and get a picture,” Bauer said. “I don’t care as much about the picture but at least let me meet the guy who I tore my place up for.”
BuzzFeed's McKay Coppins asked
the Romney campaign to comment ... but didn't receive a response. I guess his concern for "job creators" only goes so far.
