    Someone should tell Ann Romney to STFU and go to a Swiss Spa...

    On that note - I don't think ANY of our candidate can ever relate to what the average American knows and deals with. . . they're ALL the 1% - they're all the elite.

    But whatever: I never liked him as a candidate even without this housewife thing.
    I don't understand your problem with it. Do you think people should never retire if they're still physically capable of working? Why is it better for someone who doesn't need the money to take a job that could go to someone who does need the money?
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Retirement at least denotes that you worked hard and achieved something.

    But I don't see myself wanting to do so - I'm 31 and have yet to get back into my career as management.

We dont need to have a national election for the nations nanny or big borther...we need a President. We need someone that understands business and industry. We need a government that is fiscally responsible. So far...both major parties have failed this country miserably. If you want a buddy...if you want a pro tem daddy...fine...do that on your own time. The country needs a LEADER.,
    You're the only one that's mentioned feelings. Understanding the concerns of Americans doesn't mean their feelings it means you prioritize based on what's important to most Americans. That you recognize issue that are important to Americans and try and solve them as President.

    For example...we hear from conservatives in Arizona that passed the immigration bill that people don't understand the situation in that state in regards to immigration....aka understanding the concerns of those citizens. That immigration is a large issue. They are tired of it not being dealt with.

    I have it on very good authority that the average American just isn't bright enough to understand the importance of what their professional politicians are doing. Just cast your ballot an fuggedaboutit.
