    Romney.  Not just someone who would surround himself with bloodsucking banksters & 1% pirates - he himself IS one.

    Has poling numbers near Obama.

    Think on that.

    I wonder why that is.

    Why on Earth would people not understand Obama offers an alternative to financial scorched earth policies that benefit the 1%?

    Why on Earth would people consider giving Romney a chance?

    Because, at the end of the day, there has been no material change from the financial stand point.

    That's why.

    It's going to be up to social issues - again.  Yet again.  Yet again.

    What a shame social issues don't affect the 1%.

    There is a reason that Obama's Chiefs of Staff come from Wall Street Banks. And it has nothing to do with Change We Can Believe In.

      I don't mean racist America or callous America or all of those tropes.  It's Optimistic America, where millions of struggling or so-so people imagine they're going to be wealthy tomorrow...and they don't want the tax system to be progressive when they get there!

      But nobody's buying flowers from the flower lady.

      •  Yepp - and that little nugget of idiocy keeps (0+ / 0-)

        the rubes going back and voting against their own self interests.

        The more enlightened of us choose to back the other Wall Street candidate.

        •  This is the sense in which Republicans... (0+ / 0-)

          ...have their finger on our national pulse.  This is still a country where many-to-most people think there's some non-trivial chance of getting rich.

          •  And likewise, those corporate Dems who have taken (0+ / 0-)

            over the Democratic Party, have their pulse on the rest of the nation and understand fear of the GOP, not policy advocacy, is the key to electoral victory.

            The sad things is the 1% wins either way.

            Which may explain why they elected to infiltrate and take over the Dem party at the senior ranks.
