Ohio Auditor Dave Yost is the King of Similes


Mitt Romney is in Northeast Ohio today. He came to the stage to the dulcet sounds of a Kid Rock song, but not before some other GOP-types took the mic and gave their best standup efforts.

Chief among them: Ohio Auditor Dave Yost, who attempted a jab at President Obama by knocking POTUS' ownership of the Bin Laden raid. Here's how he described it (via BuzzFeed):

Yost said Obama claiming credit for the raid is like "giving Ronald McDonald credit for the Big Mac you ate for lunch," adding that "the guy at the griddle," deserves the credit.

A Romney aide, who declined to be named, distanced the candidate from the remark, saying it doesn't represent Romney's position.

The Obama camp and Ohio Democrats were none too pleased with Yost's comments, as you can read in the PD's writeup of the event.
