  •  The comments really struck a nerve with me as well (19+ / 0-)

    It got me thinking about my parents and my grandparents, people who worked harder than Romney ever has or ever will. His '47%' includes them, of course. They collected Social Security!! Enough has not been made of this. That is the largest number of people he is talking about. They are also his base.

    The comments also called to mind the core theme of the DNC -- generations working together to move up over two or even three generations and how hard it is to do. I did not appreciate until later in life what my parents did not do or have to send me to a top university with no debt on graduation. They were not poor, they were not deprived, but they also almost never took vacations, they shopped the sale items, they rarely bought anything for themselves, my mother's first airplane trip was to visit me as an adult, etc. The DNC theme resonated for everyone from the bottom to near to the top (so long as they are not selfish assholes). Romney's comments will grate on almost everyone if they take the time to listen and reflect on ther lives.

    We have only just begun and none too soon.
