Here's a sampling of what Romney said on the first leg of the tour today in New Hampshire:
"For so many Americans the distance between their town and the city of Washington has never seemed so far," Romney said. "The federal establishment has never seemed so hostile or remote – so disconnected from economic reality, and yet so willing to use restrictions and regulations, taxes and fines, commissions and czars to direct our daily lives."
A group called PA Working Families, an offshoot of the New York state-based Working Families Party, is planning a protest for Romney's visit to the Wawa.
As is to be expected, the Democratic National Committee has already come up with snappy rejoinder to the Romney campaign swing via their own: "Romney Economics: The Middle Class Under the Bus" bus tour, featuring a roster of surrogates that includes former Bucks County Congressman Patrick Murphy.
