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.

By the way TMZ, . . . Maisto products from China have been very abundant on retail store shelves for many, many, many years. Short of purchasing a hand crafted piece, . . . most replica models and toys now come from China. It was probably a gift for one of their grandkids, anyway.

this a news worth the quality of TMZ writers and journalists...I bet the blond nasty and grouchy girl is picking her nose right now, and licking her fingers (after eating from a bag of chips) thinking on the toilet paper.

GIVE IT UP! Let it go. This is getting old and people have moved on so why don't you. I'[m about ready to quit watching and going to the website. Just stick to celebrity gossip. Thats all we want from you.

Mrs. Obama goes one step further and promotes the foreign designed and made dress she is wearing. This isn't the first time...

Of course it was made in China. You can't find a car like that made in USA. Manufacturing businesses, like those that make toy cars, are getting pushed out of the US because of Obama's stupid tax plans and policies. Duh!

I hate that almost everything is made overseas. This started long before we were even born and keeps getting worse.
But time to get off Romney's butt about it.
