He added, "Everyone is getting nice and rowdy."
"Mitt's the tits!" he shouted as he walked back into the crowd.
Some of the Romney supporters heckled a passerby with an Obama shirt, yelling at her, "Do you want to be Europe? No! This is America!"

He brushed it to the ground, crumpled it and stepped on it.
"Do you have a place for trash?" he asked a nearby DPD officer.
She did not.
