A Romney-Ryan supporter wore a highly offensive t-shirt to a rally in Lancaster, OH, Friday and I am appalled to say this man represents the worst of America. Buzzfeed reports that a Romney spokesperson said the t-shirt was “reprehensible” and had no place in an election. We saw the same offensive behavior during the 2008 presidential election. This comes as a shot was fired at the Obama campaign officer in Denver, Colo. Thankfully no-one was hurt since there were people inside the office.
You see, many in the Republican Party have set the tone for this behavior. When you have someone like Romney advisor John Sununu and Newt Gingrich painting the president as lazy (as in the case of John Sununu) or lacking rhythm and may need to sleep (as uttered by Newt Gingrich) as well as being called a foreigner, what else do you expect from the fringe elements? Not once did Mitt Romney denounce the whole birther crap coming from Donald Trump. What did he do? Embrace Donald Trump, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and others:
