Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are hitting Ohio hard this weekend with a rally yesterday in Lancaster, a rural and bedroom community of Columbus, Ohio and other Ohio rallies in Portsmouth and Lebanon this weekend.
Yesterday Romney also claimed that Ryan showed up Vice President Joe Biden in their televised debate. “There was one person on the stage with thoughtfulness, who was respectful, who was steady and poised. There was one person onstage that you’d want to be with in a crisis, and it’s this man right here,” Mr. Romney said of his running mate.
Its too bad that the almost all white crowd was not as respectful and poised. Many carried anti-Obama placards and some donned blatantly racist tee shirts like the one below.
Continuing the outspoken GOP racist meme in Ohio GOP Secretary of State Jon Husted announced earlier this month that early-voting sites across the state would only be open on weekdays, which many felt the restriction would unfairly impact “working people. Husted’s reply: “I guess I really actually feel we shouldn’t contort the voting process to accommodate the urban – read African-American – voter-turnout machine,” he told the The Ohio Dispatch in an email.
Welcome to OHIO!
