    Not sure what you mean by "doesn't get it", what is the it? Also does anyone seriously believe that there would be legislative or regulatory differences between an Obama and Romney administration. How about an Obama administration that was able to win back the house and gain a stronger majority in the senate. still the same.

    Ah, so it seems the new line is indeed class warfare. At least when it comes to the 'other guys'. Their own guys can be rich and it's ok.

    That doesn't work. At all.

    Ann Romney is the mother of five, so, obviously, she can relate in many ways to other mothers. And grandmothers. And women.

    Please, they all wanted to be President. It was just in proper decorum to present oneself as inconvenienced by their ambitions.

    That's the way it works for the populists. When another rich elite, especially academic elite, or governmental elite runs for office for the Democratic party, the Republicans will rail against that elite. It's a preoccupation with the evils and distance of the elites. Republican populists are pre-occupied with the academic elite and the governmental elite. Democratic populists are preoccupied with the rich elite and the governmental elite.

    I love the envy oozing from the left. Romney got wealthy through private business, Obamas are wealthy due to political office and crony capitalism. Why did Michelle get a 200K raise when her husband slimed his way into the senate seat

    Amazing. If Romney makes money its because of "good capitalism". If the Obama's make money, its because of "crony capitalism". What manure.

    Yup...that Romney guy...from rags to riches, pulled himself up by his bootstraps. A real American success story that one!

    SO you don't see a difference? I didn't think so even though we have seen you howl many times your hatred of those who inherit wealth versus those who earned every penny of it


    You don't mind Michelle getting essentially a bribe. Obama's stupid ghost written book sells only because he holds a public office

    Who cares as long as the money made was made legally. JFK was super rich and all he had to do was be born into the right family. I always felt that allowed him to be a better politician as there was one less thing that people could hold over his head, the prospect of making money after leaving office.
