Video: Mitt Romney Says He Wears "Garbage Bag" Like NASCAR Fans

| by Michael Allen

Appearing on 'The O'Reilly Factor,' GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney claimed that he had worn a “garbage bag,” when referring to rain ponchos that NASCAR fans sometimes wear in bad weather (video below).

Romney said: “Look, I’ve worn a garbage bag for rain gear myself. We’re out there in the rain. The rain was getting us soaked. I didn’t have a raincoat myself. I would have liked one of those.”

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

As most NASCAR fans know, the emergency rain ponchos are not "garbage bags." They are plastic coverings that usually sell for less than $10.
