    these people probably do believe that they struggled - how can they be aware of anything different from their own experience when they are so taken up with themselves?

    He simply doesn't know what it's like to live in a noisy apartment where the cops won't respond to calls because they are scared (I do .. . . ).

    Many humans by default tend to assume that their own circumstances represent the range of possibility - it takes empathy to realize that what's hard for you is sheer luxury for others.

    Romney and his "advisors" have probably never seen true poverty. When I was 8, I saw - at arm's length - children who clearly were suffering from malnutrition, and were living tin shacks among piles of garbage. Changed my perspectives, it did. Many years later I saw the mudslide-in-waiting on the steep hills outside Caracas, Venezuela. Up close.

    Romney's clown-show group has probably never seen this kind of thing even on TV, let alone up-close. They don't believe it exists, and if they did it would be because "they're lazy".

    They have no idea. And this is all the more reason for this miscreant never to be in the White House.
