    Yes, and I will give detailed instructions. Go get a telescope out when the sun is up, point it at the sun and look through the telescope for the evidence. J/K please don't do that hehe.

    Both sides have proven themselves to be hypocritical on certain issues and situations. So what is the point of you stating the obvious again?
    Because apparently there are some that dont get it. Like...Oh...I dont know...go to any rally where the pres talks about how rich Romney is and he cant relate to average folks. Or every time a democrat spokesman on TV brings up Romneys tax bracket without mentioning all those dems...the same ones they never deemed it important enough to discuss before.

    I don't see where I'm ranting.

    I actually felt like I've been led completely off the path of the subject. No you're not going to see rants about those two since they've already served as President and it's their record that speaks for them. No it doesn't mean that every yacht club 100 millionaire is an FDR or Kennedy.

    If you run for President of the United States it's your burden to prove you are "X" and in Romneys case that's proving his policies aren't formulated from someone that has no idea what Americans deal with. Last I checked Gingrich and Santorum both used his out of touchness to attack Romney.

    I didn't accuse you of ranting, I was speaking in the general narrative.

    You haven't been led off the path, I'm just questioning your thought process. We have seen the movement from because candidate X and spouse is rich and hasn't had to work or live a comparable life to average American, candidate is unfit for leadership of Americans. Then when presented with contrary evidence from the past, we are now lead to believe that candidate is rich and hasn't had to work or lead comparable life, but his policies speak for themselves (liberal or progressive policies being preferable to understanding the plight of Americans). Yet, the focus of the thread has been exclusively on Ann not working or Mitt coming from a rich and powerful family.

    They are going to give someone **** for not working when her husband makes enough money to provide for both of them? I do not fault anyone for not working if her or even his spouse makes enough money to provide for both of them.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They aren't unfit for leadership. In the case of Ann Romney....I don't see where questions as to whether she's an accurate barometer of what most women are concerned with are unfair. You don't go to a yacht or country club to get an estimation of what most Americans are concerned with.

    As for leadership in general. Romney's success and upbringing is a double edged sword. Yes he has experience in the business community. Yes he was very successful at Bain Capital as well as saving the Olympics. He's brought them up constantly. Why is it unfair to ask that he prove that he's not completely out of touch with most Americans?

    If someone that I'm unfamiliar with comes from a billionaire family it's pretty rational to expect them to be out of touch. They may not be, they may have life experiences that make them different. As a person running for President it's his job to prove that.

    But when confronted with this, they shift to the 'but they are rich, so she had nannies and housekeepers and thus doesn't know what it's like to work as a mother/homemaker!"

    It's an ever moving field goal that shows the lack of standards and principle on their part.

    I know...right? So is the gal that said it. She said pretty much the same thing. Well...what she said was the equivalent of So what if I called your mother a ****, what really matter is your dad isnt a good plumber.

    Its going to make for intriguing drama this election cycle. you think this is bad...wait til the attacks on his religion get in full swing. And its really a shame too because I am SURE they would rather talk about unemployment, the debt, gas prices, failed energy policies, turmoil in the ME, terrorists still in GITMO, expansion of black ops prisons in other countries, etc etc etc...
