    What would you like me to know about his life that I don't already know?

That is father was incredibly wealthy? That he's completely out of touch with average Americans?

    I, and a lot of my friends, were doing something not nearly as pleasant in 1966/67.

    Yeah, you go with that. Don't even bother to check on reality. So few here do.

    Big deal. A lot of people, including Bill Clinton did not feel it ( Vietnam) was a worthy cause. Putting people down because of wealth seems so stupid it is almost mind numbing. Did you have the same problem with the Kennedy brothers. I didn't, but you somehow must have thought of them being "Out of touch".

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.

    I think Willard's lack of understanding of those who's incomes are taxed at a higher rate than 15% is well documented.

    The 'humorous' story of his Dad moving a company out of state.
    His Nascar Owners comment
    His wife has several Cadillacs

    What first caught my eye was back in 2008 when he ran for the nomination he called for Americans to step up and do their duty. When asked what his sons were doing, he did a Mitt Mutter about they are adults, make their own decisions, chose not to serve in the military, but one was serving by working to get Dad elected President.

    I don't think most folks can't understand rich people don't have the same concerns those further down the economic ladder, it just rankled some feel the need to pretend they do and are 'one of us' when in fact they don't.

    How does that line go... a man FOR the people, not OF the people.

    But I do tend to forget one thing Willard believes-

    Corporations are people too my friends....

    I am sure that Romney meant to say that the people who work in corporations are people too. It just came out wrong. As a gaffe maker, Romney is going to be epic, as in Dan Quayle. LOL.

    I feel that anyone who has the $$$$ to run for POTUS is probably too rich to "be in touch" with John Q Public. In this, Romney is no different from any other politician at the national level. To try to call him out and bash him for it is as foolish as bashing someone for breathing air.

    The sad truth is that anyone who can actually afford to run for president is probably someone who has never had to "work for a living". The last what? 7 or 8 presidents we've had have been millionaires. Can anyone remember the last POTUS who wasn't super rich or came from a rich family?

    Abe Lincoln perhaps?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    I like the idea that one of our founding fathers had. Find someone who doesn't want to be president, arrest him, and confine him to the office for a period of 4 years. LOL.
