The bad taste of smiling happily next to a sign that likens our top tier Dem candidates to the head of al Qaeda didn't sit well with many. Case in point: Jerid at BuckeyeState:

I don't understand how someone can compare any American to Osama Bin Laden, but pundits are still willing to prey on the emotions that everyone that lived through 9/11 feel, invoking images of the most hate man in America to describe the political opposition. It's a cheap, divisive, whorish move to make. It represents the worst of the politics of hate. It's a move that I expect presidential candidates of all parties to be above. But Mitt Romney is not.

So I asked him about it on Sunday at a townhall meeting in Exeter, NH. In the video, I'm angry. I still am right now. Please, watch this video.

Yup, that's Presidential material right there. Putz.
