Campaigning in Colorado yesterday in advance of his appearance at tonight's debate at the University of Denver, Mitt Romney stopped at the Chipotle in Stapleton -- where he ordered extra guac with his burrito.

He also got a side of sarcasm from our readers.

Says Krissy:

Good way to try and prove you're Latino, Mittens. Plenty of other places to go for more of an authentic....oh wait, authentic. Gotcha...

And the debate soon spilled over to Rosa Linda's Mexican Cafe, which had earlier refused a visit from the Romney camp. Says JimRome:

Completely in the Romney camp, but I patronize every local establishment I can to support locally owned businesses. This will be the last time I ever step in to Rosa Linda's. Sad to see a restaurant alienate 50% of its customer base.

Where do you think Romney should have eaten? Did Rosa Linda's make a mistake? Post your thoughts below, or join the discussion already under way here.
