Yeah, wealthy in the cradle. Then he talks about the shiftless half of Americans unwilling to work. "Just borrow from your parents" for college, he says.
At a posh garden party fundraiser he says "I want everybody to live like this". Since when does "everybody" want to live in that conspicuous opulence?
Yet to republicans he is a hero, "one of us", the model American, so what does that say about them?

I'm a minority and voted Obama. I didn't get squat. What the heck is Romney talking about?

Im a conservative and I VOTED for OBAMA!!! No way was I going to give my vote to a flip-floping fish with no strategic plan to improve the economy. Obama had it tough for the first term and it will be even harder for the second term but it would be hard for any president, since you can't just jump start the ecomony overnight. It took years to get this bad and it will take years again to get back to "normal"

The Irony... I've noticed that the GOP has been deliberately defunding education at every level for the past 49 years as well as demonizing teachers - that has led to 3 more generations of frightened, angry, ignorant, gullible bigots in our country - just the type that vote for whatever crazy ideas and crazy candidates the GOP put out.

Fox says that uneducated people voted for Obama - I guess meaning people who are not real bright. Where did they get their information?

McCain seems to have just found out that he lost his attempt at election. Kind of having difficulty keeping track of where and when he is.

Default Romney to donors: Obama won because he gave away "free gifts" to minoriites

And Romney didn't win mostly because he wanted to take those "gifts" from working Americans and give them to millionaires, instead.

Obama won states that were very diverse ethnic populations and he won states that were very white. Romney is just trying to justify his loss to his donors and himself.
