Mitt Romney leveled an #Occupy goon yesterday at a campaign stop in South Carolina. The former governor told the young socialist he might be happier in Cuba or Communist China.
Nice work, Mitt.
The Washington Post reported:
The Romney campaign is proudly circulating this video of Mitt Romney dressing down an Occupy Wall Street protester with this line: “America’s right, and you’re wrong.”
“GREAT VIDEO,” Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom Tweeted just now. And for all I know, this sort of confrontation will help Romney among South Carolina Republicans and prevent Newt from pulling off a major upset. It probably makes for really good optics among some swing voters, too:
Let me tell you something. America is a great nation, because we’re a united nation. And those who are trying to divide the nation, as you’re trying to do here, and as our president is doing, are hurting this country seriously. The right course for America is not to try to divide America, and try and divid us between one and another. it’s to come together as a nation.
And if you’ve got a better model — if you think China’s better, or Russia’s better, or Cuba’s better, or North Korea’s better — I’m glad to hear all about it.
But you know what? America’s right, and you’re wrong.
