Mitt Romney

Hits Costco

Buys Toy Car (Manufactured in China)

Mitt Romney went on a MASSIVE (and fiscally responsible) shopping spree at a Costco near his home in La Jolla, CA this week ... stocking up on all sorts of goods ... including a product MADE IN CHINA!!!

Besides the paper plates, dixie cups, wrapping paper, V8 juice drinks, pretzel snacks, Bisquick and bottled water ... Mitt and his wife Ann also purchased a model car made by the Maisto company (probably a gift for one of his 18 grandkids ... sorry for spoiling Xmas).

TMZ spoke to a rep for Maisto who confirmed their products are manufactured in China ... before they're shipped to the distribution center in Fontana, CA.

Of course, Mitt railed against China during his bid for the presidency ... claiming the country is manipulating currency and stealing American manufacturing jobs.

We tried to find some American-made toy cars that Mitt could've bought instead ... but we couldn't ... not even Hot Wheels ... they're manufactured in China and Mexico.

Well TMZ you did it again...Obama all the way right? You should have put in caps 'BUT COULDN'T' since you put that he bought stuff 'MADE IN CHINA'. Too much stuff will continue to be made in China as long as we don't bring manufacturing back to the USA. This has been a reality for several years!!

You must have NOTHING to talk about today! Are you surprised he pumps his gas, buys groceries and goes to movies just like the rest of us? YES he does. Half this country voted for him...HALF. Leave him alone.

Hey TMZ imps, Romney didn't say don't buy product made in China, he said we should have fair trade with China. You didn't want him as prez so there's no way for him to change that now.


He's rich and kicking back and enjoying life living on the beach in La Jolla. And still he shops at Costco, what does that tell you.
