President Obama and Mitt Romney Standing Near Hay

By

How do you make a president worth $6 million and a former investment tycoon worth $250 million seem more like the “common men” they hope to appeal to? Why, just put them near some hay! The only people you normally find in close proximity to hay are down-to-earth, hard-working folks, so if you see President Obama or Mitt Romney next to some hay, it must mean they are like that, too — or, at the very least, can understand the problems facing such people. Because hay.
