Richard Hayes, a City of San Diego sanitation worker, is the unlikely star of new campaign commercial paid for by a labor group supporting President Obama.

The reason? His route includes Mitt Romney's $12 million La Jolla mansion.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees says the ad is a response to the Republican presidential nominee's controversial 47 percent comments.

"My name is Richard Hayes, and I pick up Mitt Romney's trash," he says in the 60-second spot. "We're kind of like the invisible people, you know."

A bunch of celebrities want you to Vote 4 Stuff.

David Letterman wants to make sure you don't vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, unless he appears on The Late Show before November 6.

President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are vying to spend the next four years in the White House. Current polls show a very close race shaping up for November 6.

We ask your opinion all the time on who should win the 2012 presidential election. But today, thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, we're asking ... who would win a scare-off?!

Last night, the talk-show host discussed the sales of the respective candidates' Halloween masks, pointing out that Obama was clobbering Romney in costume sales.

Kimmel then decided to find out which would scare his security guard Adelina more. Hilarious:

Ann Romney, the wife of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, made her late-night debut on Jay Leno's couch, advocating for her husband and sharing the requisite funny anecdotes, like this one:

Ann Romney proved herself to be a compelling proxy for Mitt, even if she steered clear of actual policy, when Leno asked for her thoughts on the now-infamous 47 percent video.

Mitt Romney gave the Internets another chuckle Monday with (possibly sarcastic) comments that appeared to show the GOP presidential candidate confused by the physics of aviation.

After his wife, Ann Romney, was forced to make an emergency landing last weekend, Mitt was worried because “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly."

Romney said the biggest problem in a distressed aircraft is that "the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous."

Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann Romney, released their 2011 tax returns today. Spoiler alerts: They're still really rich, and Democrats will call for him to release more!

They paid $1.94 million in federal income taxes on income of $13.7 million, most of it from investments, for an effective tax rate of 14.1 percent, his campaign said.

That's slightly above the 13.9 percent rate the couple paid for 2010.

Mitt Romney Wins Primary

The Republican presidential candidate's taxes have emerged as an ongoing issue in the 2012 election, as he has declined to release any returns filed before 2010.

Romney's fortune and association with Bain Capital, the private equity firm he co-founded, have been lightning rods in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama.

Critics, including Obama, have urged Romney to release more than just the two years of returns; for whatever reason, he has indicated he does not plan to do so.

It's been kind of a tough week for Mitt, with his 47 percent comment going viral, and even a surprising story about his eldest son Tagg Romney emerging today.

What do you think? Should he release more tax returns?

Eddie Vedder clearly thinks you can't find a better man than Barack Obama for President ... or at least that he's a better man for the job than Mitt Romney.

Performing a set of songs at a campaign fundraiser for Obama in South Tampa last night, the Pearl Jam frontman bashed Romney's 47 percent comments.

"It's very upsetting to hear a presidential candidate be so easily dismissive of such a ginormous amount of the population," Vedder told the audience.

Vedder and Obama

Vedder helped raise $1.7 million Thursday for Obama's reelection campaign, playing four songs for the president and 85 guests at a $20,000-per-person dinner.

"I can't say I've ever played that many songs in a suit before," he said of "Rise," "Without You," James Taylor's "Millworker" and Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World."

He recalled signing up for a government security guard training program, working the midnight shift and becoming a security supervisor at a petroleum company.

It was this, he said, that made his dreams reality.

"I'm an example of someone who never made it to university," Vedder said. "I did have this dream to be a musician. I felt that this dream had an expiration date."
