Looks like Willard is at it again trying to pander to the "little people" but his elitism continues to shine through. At a recent nascar event speaking to voters, Willard attempts to appeal to them by stating that his friends own nascar teams

That is sort of a reach and ridiculous. I even have friends who own a Nascar team. So what?

I think this one is even worse than the "Cadillacs" the other day. The one in Detroit was an audience of the well heeled. This time he jets down to Daytona and sets up a photo op with the little people and then reminds everyone that he is not one of them. He is turning into a one man circus act. I did not think it earlier, but I am increasingly convinced we may see an Obama landslide in November.

I agree, Willard just can't connect with average people and his elitism shines through over and over. If anything, Obama is very good at connecting with the average american. Regardless of whom the GOP candidate is going to be, it's looking very good for Obama.

How much longer will the liberal retards on CD go out of their way to remind people that Romney is rich and successful?

He's got money, he's got wealthy friends, he's a tough businessman... we got it.

Oh right, Mitt Romney, the completely self-made man...like having daddy's connections had nothing to do with it.

Republitard 'tardness knows no bounds...

How? By singing a few lines to a well known song... after grabbing a microphone from Mick Jagger and singing with BB King while Buddy Guy played guitar? Yeah, he's definitely an average American kind of guy.

I sponsored a Nascar Team for a few years. Granted it was a third tier team that raced regionally and I only had a little sticker on the B-pillar. But hey I was a sponsor.

Just another example of crash and burn from Team Romney -- Good Job Mittens, I don't think there has ever been a single candidate more out of touch with voters than Romney.

You gotta love Mitt. Wonder what he'll say next:

"Hello, Detroit! I love GM. Hell, I love cars. In fact my dad used to drive us around in his Rolls Royce, and I'll never forget my first car, a Mercedes Benz!"

Oh well, I'll take that over Gingrich practically masturbating to statues of Julius Caesar and Santorum's occasional Fred Phelps impersonations. I'm seriously waiting for Santorum's campaign slogan to be "Rick Hates F@gs" or something like that. Ought to be quite the circus, er, convention in August.
