Romney Wawa visit diverted by Rendell, protesters

Quakertown, Pennsylvania (CNN) - The presence of protesters and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell was enough to steer Mitt Romney's campaign bus toward another Wawa store in Quakertown Saturday.

The Democratic National Committee has staged stops nearby or along Romney's six-state bus tour, waging their own message campaign called "Romney economics: The middle class under the bus tour."

Rendell scheduled an appearance at the same gas station and convenience store chain in Bucks County that was supposed to be one of three stops for Romney on Saturday.

Reporters and camera crews spotted as many as 150 protesters.

Romney's campaign bus was less than a half-hour away from the Wawa on John Fries Highway when journalists were told his bus would be stopping elsewhere.

Luckily, in Pennsylvania, there are a lot of Wawas to choose from, so the campaign was able to divert Romney's bus to another store just a few miles way.

When the GOP candidate arrived, he greeted young kids in little league uniforms and went inside to order a meatball sub. Not a protester was in sight.

Romney and his campaign wouldn't openly acknowledge the Wawa change, other than to point out Rendell's propensity to say things that could disappoint the Obama White House and his Democratic allies.

“My surrogate is former Gov. Rendell, who said I can win Pennsylvania, so I'm happy to hear that," Romney said.

Since his "surrogate" was there, Romney said, "we decided to come to a different place."

Fast Eddie should keep his fat mouth shut. I'm so sick of that moron. How do you fuck up the state budget almost every year you're in office? Seriously.

I read an interesting story about that wawa visit. The guy I know that open carries a lot (same one from the Philly arrest thread) happened to be there. Wasnt a planned thing, he was just stopping in for coffee. Had his 1911 on him. The secret service did a double take on him when they saw his sidearm.

Not that MSNBC aren't tools of the highest order, but even Romney's unedited clip talking about a "touch-tone keypad" makes him sound pretty out-of touch. I assume he meant "touchscreen"?

And why is he talking about "Hoagies" and "Wawas" in Wisconsin? Romney-bot needs to have his regional dialogue matrix upgraded :icon_cool

That Wawa makes great sandwiches, but if Mitt wanted a meatball sub, I know a little place right across the street.

How ironic that he's also out of touch with who invented the touch screen? That big socialist government laboratory CERN.
:haha7:

CERN has often been the incubator for the development of innovative technologies but very few people know about the capacitive touch screens invented for the consoles of the SPS Control Room in 1973.

Not as out of touch as "we need to spend $6 trillion to save the economy".

It did get a few chuckles out of me, for sure. That and he said, "I went to the Wawas"...like there's a Mr. And Mrs. Wawa running it. It's just Wawa.
