Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney may, by comparison, be more moderate and centrist than any of his Republican Presidential nomination opponents, with the exception of Jon Huntsman, but he has a major Achilles Heel that could doom his candidacy.
Mitt Romney is, by far, the wealthiest of all GOP candidates, worth at least one fourth of a BILLION dollars, and the fact that he has that much fortune makes him unable, apparently, to understand the plight of ordinary Americans, who are not fortunate enough to have such tremendous advantage as Romney, and his sons in the future, will have!
So, instead, Romney jokes about being “unemployed” to unemployed workers in New Hampshire!
Instead, Romney tells a crowd in Iowa that corporations are “people”!
Instead, Romney now has decided to knock down one of his homes, with about 3,000 square feet, and rebuild another home with over 11,000 square feet. He, apparently, finds a 3,000 square foot home too confining, at a time when many Americans are losing their homes, or have no chance ever to buy their own home!
And Romney faults Barack Obama for going on what is basically a “working” vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, only about 400 miles from the White House, while Romney has had plenty of opportunity to go on vacation, and if not right now, it is his own fault because he chooses to seek the Presidential nomination, and finally, has to actually “work” now for the first time since he last sought the Presidency unsuccessfully in 2008!
