    I'll point again to my brother in WI and his ex-boss, who is a huge teabagger and who was a massive Romney supporter.  According to my brother, all she ever did was talk about how SHE was the job creator, she and she alone built her company, and her workers were dirt beneath her feet.

    She and her family were very rich, they succeeded economically.  But she refused to pay her workers decent wages (why my brother quit), so that they could support their families.  Her workers were not succeeding economically, so what of their family values?

    This sounds like the GOP is beginning to have "come to Jesus" moments.  They're not going to get elected only on the votes of CEOs and Wall Street hedge fund managers.  They need middle class workers to vote for them.  Which means the GOP needs to support workers who don't get up every morning plotting how to screw over their co-workers, who instead just want a days honest work, a paycheck and go home to play with their kids.

    Romney and the far-right dismissed all of those people as lazy moochers, which is a huge part of why they lost.
