Romney Mobbed At Florida Event; Hundreds Turned Away When Screeners Can't Keep Up

GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney drew so many people to a St. Augustine, Florida rally that hundreds were unable to be admitted when the screeners couldn't process them fast enough.

And even better, Romney is hitting President Obama hard on Medicare:

"The president's idea for instance for Medicare was to cut it by $700 billion dollars," Romney said. "That's not the right answer. We want to make sure we preserve and protect Medicare."

Being as it's the Buzzfeed, the next line of this 'news story' says:

Obama's cut to the Medicare Advantage program helped underwrite the health care overhaul, and was intended to cut administrative costs, not services; the budget laid out b Rep. Paul Ryan also relies on that cut.

Which is absolute horse manure. The money involved was swiped from Medicare to fund ObamaCare, cancer drugs are rationed, care to seniors is rationed and Medicare Advantage isn't just being 'cut' - it's being eliminated under ObamaCare. Nor are these drastic cuts for seniors already enrolled in Medicare or over 55 part of the Ryan Budget, as a simple reading will reveal.

Expect more of this sort of thing from the usual suspects.

But I think a lot of seniors see what's going on and aren't going to be fooled quite so easily.
