    Romney may come across as a clueless jerk, but as this editorial in the NYT notes, about Romney's comments at a fundraiser, caught on video: In that safe zone, Mr. Romney spoke with a bone-chilling cynicism and a revolting smugness.

    The truth is that Mr. Romney has been trying to incite the anger of a small slice of the richest Americans who need no government assistance but get it anyway, against the working poor, older Americans, the disabled workers and veterans, and even a significant chunk of middle-class Americans....

    It is not his job, he said, as a candidate nor apparently as president if he is elected, “to worry about those people...”

    It's apparently "not his job" as a alleged human being to be concerned about women working in deplorable conditions.

    Romney's comments about the women working in that horrible place weren't comments about how outraged he was over their awful, inhumane working conditions, or the fact that they were fenced in.  No, his comments were about their being "lucky" to work there and about people being "lucky" to be in America.  Of course, even in America, some people are a lot "luckier" than others, and Mitt doesn't care about the not so lucky ones.
