Does no one recognize the last name? Jackie is the daughter of Dennis Kucinich, a former democratic congressman. She's also a frequent guest on MSNBC.

Only on volnation will this thread run on for a month fueled by fake outrage, when it was debunked 5 minutes after the OP.

Oh dear lord. What a crock on so many levels.

This reminds me of the level of tweets from some "journalist" a few weeks ago when Romney visited Abingdon, Virginia. Journalist actually tweeted that Romney's motorcade traveled route that passed a confederate flag flying at someone's residence.

Second, from personal experience, there are very few actual "Romney staffers" at these events. Maybe 5-10, if that. These people are steps away from Romney from the time he steps off the bus until the time he gets back on and pulls away. Those 5-10 actual staffers have virtually zero involvement with the crowd. At this event the crowd is estimated to have been nearly 30,000.

These events are mostly coordinated by local Republicans and local law enforcement working together with the U.S. Secret Service. The locals are given detailed and specific instructions on what the crowd is allowed to do and not to do, where they can be and cannot be. These locals have absolutely zero connection to the Romney campaign and are not staffers. But that story isn't as sexy as "Romney staffers" allowing children to freeze to death.

Once the candidate arrives with his Secret Service entourage, the crowd's freedom of movement is severely scaled back even further. The secret service is running the show at that point and will not be happy with people jumping over barriers even if it is just to leave. They start to get jumpy when that happens.

I don't doubt that people were cold and trying to leave. What is disingenuous is trying to directly and personally lay this at the feet of Mitt Romney via his "staffers." It is laughable and sad at the same time.

This is why the American people find the media so detestable anymore.
