Im Just Saying: Funny Political Thought About Romney

From Denny:  Since I could care less who wins or who loses the GOP race for president, I'm free to mock it in style.

At our house we were watching the GOP primary returns for the last three states of Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri.  Much to everyone's surprise it was the non-candidate Santorum that ran away with two of the races.

Though delegates were not awarded it is Santorum that has basically caught up with front-runner Mitt Romney by about 86 for Santorum to 94 delegates for Romeny.  The winner needs about 700 to win.

Santorum, a Catholic, has sharpened his message to be known as the middle class guy and conservative.  Romney is painted as the rich guy who is out of touch.

Lately, since getting trounced in the last race Romney is working hard to overcome the perception by portraying himself as a sensitive guy.  He even laid claim to being a Mormon minister for 10 years and how he truly understands the unemployed and marital difficulties as a result of not being able to pay your bills.

So, here is my I'm Just Saying:

How is that a guy who spent his business career as a corporate raider who bankrupted businesses, laid off and fired thousands of people and raided pension funds for the corporate profits call himself "understanding" of the unemployed?

What's funnier is how is that a corporate raider is actually stupid enough to run for president at a time when millions have lost their jobs overseas because of the very Big Business he represents?

Are American voters really going to allow such a rapacious person to grab a hold of the reins of power to open wider the flood gates for Wall Street to fully control and wreck the American economy beyond what they have already ruined via the home foreclosure crisis?

Is Romney so naive as to "understand" that millions of the middle class are angry at being fired and losing their homes to Big Banks - that he believes they will be pleased to vote him into office as president?

Hey, I'm Just Saying... :)
