    Mitt Romney joked today about his dad shutting down a factory in Michigan and moving it to Wisconsin.  He bet Rick Perry 10,000 dollars about a line in his book, and joked about his wife's Cadillacs (yes plural).  He said he doesn't care about the very poor and likes firing people (both taken a little out of context, but telling considering his economic plans raise taxes on the poor and middle class while cutting them on the rich).  He also only has a 34% approval rating, much lower than Obamas.

    Maybe liberals like me were wrong to wish for Santorum.  Romney will just gaffe himself into oblivion, and Obama can win re-election!

      Romney dosen't give a rats ass about the everyday Joe. He doesn' have to worry about his job or healthcare. He doesn't have a plan for anything. He wants to repeal Obamacare, which was modeled after hid Romneycare and has an attitude of "tough s**t" for people trying to get afforable healthcare with preexisting conditions and other healthcare issues that Obama solved. Romney is a f***in' assh**e and I do hope he goes down in flames in Novemeber.

      Amen!  And, the more I hear about the whopping mansion he's building, the more I find it hard to believe that anyone could believe he can relate to, or care about, the average person.

    I think, quite honestly, he already has gaffed himself into oblivion. He would make a terrible, weak president. There isn't a chance for him.

    Yep, but you could substitute virtually anyone in Washington right now for "Mitt Romney."

      Are you trying to imply that there is a (politician) in Washington that is NOT out of touch with the man in the street?  'Cause I would have to disagree...

        You're right. I retract my "virtually" qualifier.

    I don't think Bernie Sanders is out of touch.  But I do agree that most of them (regardless of party) are.

    No s**t that Romney is out of touch. He's also a lying piece of crap that will say anything to get elected and not man enough to admit he's wrong when called on it.

    He's got more money than God, and plenty of Obama-Haters.....Anybody But Obama....

    These same people who gave us Tea Party 2010.

    NO ONE on the right even so much as spanked them for not producing Jobs Jobs Jobs....said not a word.

    As long as it's not Obama--they would vote for anyone. IMO
