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.

Hey, TMZ, been shopping for toys lately? Good luck finding anything that isn't made in China. But while you're at it, be sure to check all of Obama's purchases. Let's see if everything he and his family buys is made in the USA.

Come on now TMZ, Michele Obama was seen shopping at Target, and not one word about where her purchases were manufactured. I am sure Target is way up there with providing non USA products just as much as Costco is. Get real and be fair here.

The real question should be, where does Linsey Lohan get her drugs?

China already owns us. All you need to do is take a look at how much Obama is borrowing to fund his disastrous plans. I'd rather buy Chinese than fund a US Union made item.

Leave Mitt and family alone. You liberals are so vindictive, even when you win the election. How is he supposed to avoid buying China-made products? They are everywhere. Given his history, I wouldn't be surprised if the toys he was buying were for charity

As far as this guy saying he is a Christian, that is even worse than Obama saying it. This guy let Chris Christie tell a young female college student at his campaign stop in New Hampshire to give him a blow job tonight, with Mrs. Romney right on stage, and all Mitt the Nitwit did was stand there smiling like it was all cool. I was so embarrassed for his wife that this was how her husband was representing himself in his presidential campaign. That is when I first got a taste of what kind of decent man Mitt Romney is. I knew right then that I really didn't trust him.

Funny how liberals talk about people that have NOTHING to do with anything important (Romney, Palin) when they should be paying attention to what Obama is doing. Just a smoke screen, that reminds me .....BYE
