Watch The Saddest OWS Mic Check In History As Mitt Romney Supporters Fight Back

You know you’ve had a bad day when your Occupy The Caucus protest gets foiled by — of all people — Mitt Romney supporters (often stereotypically characterized as “unenthusiastic”)

Demonstrators attempted to interrupt Romney’s last campaign stop in Clive, Iowa with the “human microphone”, but their ill-advised “mic check” was instantly thwarted by overwhelming cheers as the Republican presidential hopeful’s audience of supporters easily shouted them down.

According to Des Moines Register reporter Regina Zilbermints:

Romney’s fans quickly drowned out other hecklers who attended the beginning of the rally and chanted, “Stop the war on the poor!”

They were immediately overwhelmed by hundreds of audience members chanting “Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!”

After a couple of rounds of shouting, the protesters were led out by police.

Romney went on with his speech, unfazed by the disturbance.

“Hey, guys, isn’t it great to live in a country where people can express their views and — this is a great country. I love it. Make it loud and clear,” Romney remarked. “I’ll tell you one thing, when President Obama is here I hope we’re in the audience making the same sounds about his policies. Let’s make sure we have our voice, loud and clear!”
