Americans have no problem electing wealthy men and women to office. What they balk at though is electing candidates who they believe do not understand the plight of average Americans, especially when the country remains mired in a recession. Romney with one speech makes just under the median American household income of $46,326. With just eight speeches he matches several years of income for ordinary folks. Yet he considers that to be "not very much" money?
For a smart man, Mitt Romney can be incredibly stupid at times. He might get a pass in Republican circles for such ill-advised comments. But when he goes to the general election round, his tin ear when it comes to the economic plight of average Americans will be an albatross hanging around the nominee's neck. As I've said, Romney
He's unlikely to get a pass from the American people when he is the nominee and is squaring off against President Barack Obama.
