What Is Romney Thinking? (Or is He?)
I haven't posted any political diatribes in about four years; but it's that time again. All the pundits are talking about the latest Romney "gaffe" in which he told $50,000 a plate donors his dismissive view of nearly half of Americans. I don't think it was a "gaffe," I think it was Romney being honest about what he believes. The fact is what he believes is not only wrong, it's stupid. The 47% of the American people who are dyed-in-the-wool Obama supporters are not all moochers. I'm not. I support Obama and I pay income taxes -- lots of them. The best discussion I've seen about Romney's comments are by John Cassidy in The New Yorker. They're worth your while to read.
