I was at the rally this afternoon and Mitt Romney was called out by an attende for his politicization of the tragedy in Libya. Romney was also asked to apologize to the family of slain ambassador Christopher Stevens before the heckler was removed by the secret service.

Did he dance on anyone's grave today? Or was that just "yesterday-Mitt"?

HOW MUCH MONEY DID YOU MAKE YESTERDAY? Mitt Romney made $57,260 each and every day of 2011. And he chose to open secret bank accounts in well-known tax havens including Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and other foreign countries to bet against America. If you want to help Mitt Romney and his BILLIONAIRE friends make millions more in the future. Vote Romney-Ryan and SCREW the MIDDLE CLASS!
