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.

Hear it from the workers who were employed by Romney's Bain Capital corporate raidership. He is about as loyal to the American worker as a Chinese slave labor boss, literally.

TMZ KILLS ME! Walk into any store and try and find a product made in the USA anymore. Hey, I guess it's Mitt's fault...or do you have Bush on speedial still? I believe this is deliberate in order to cause an uproar against the absurd. What's truly comical is that half of America bought the "Mitt is out of touch with the middle class because he is so rich"....Yet, the Obama's have muti-million dollar homes and take multi-million dollar vacations on your tax money and you vote him back him to keep taking direct advantage of you. I see on FB, people are already griping about there insurance premiums skyrocketing and things not being covered as they once were. Tip of the iceberg people. Yeah' Keep pickin on Mitt....that will help.....Stupid is what stupid does.

No worse than serving beer, chips and pizza at your White House Super Bowl party when you are traveling around the nation trying to speak out against and fight obesity and lack of healthy foods in our schools.
