Default Re: Mitt Romney Hit Piece

There's a fear that Mitt doesn't come across as sincere enough in his hate and, more convincingly, that the Republicans' ongoing effort to portray the Dems as the elitists who hate the regular guy, to replace the issues with the culture war, doesn't ultimately work well with Mitt. Mitt seems like an east coast elitist type.
He lost this thing a long time ago. He's been forgiven many times, however. It started with his comments about the Ryan plan and the final straw was the attacks on Bain capital. In between there was sitting on the couch with Nancy (not that recent but it's being dredged up) and his activities with Freddie.

He'd be so great if he was different.
