Why Mitt Romney Can't Win

This is why Mitt Romney can't win the election:

"We simply can't have a setting where the teachers unions are able to contribute tens of millions of dollars to the campaigns of politicians and then those politicians, when elected, stand across from them at the bargaining table, supposedly to represent the interest of the kids. I think it's a mistake," Romney said during an appearance Tuesday with NBC's Education Nation. "I think we've got to get the money out of the teachers unions going into campaigns. It's the wrong way for us to go." (Mr.Romney, quoted by John Nichols in a column in The Capital Times, September 30, 2012)

Has Mr. Romney not heard about the big business super-PACs? Or, is he pretending not to know?

Nichols goes on in the column to say, "...the Republican nominee's royalist tendencies come to the fore."

Royalist tendencies.

"The people" are onto Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Even though distorted by liberal media, reaction to the "47 percent" remark was right on the money. "The people" know who is on their side and who is on the side of "the aristocracy." In the United States of America, we do not suffer aristocracy lightly, not even to mention royalty. Who do those people think they are?

There is nothing the matter with Kansas anymore. Remember the 2004 book, What's the Matter with Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America by historian Thomas Frank? It argues that the GOP tricked ordinary people in staid places like Kansas (and Wisconsin) into voting for them, even though votes for Republicans are votes against ordinary peoples' personal economic interests.

Those of us who remain loyal to the Democratic Party, confident that the Democratic Party centers itself in the interests of the ordinary people -- "the people" -- have worked steadily for years to get "the people" to realize that the Republican Party is there to for elitist business interests; we are pleased to see the fruits of our labor ripening. "The people" for a large part are no longer fooled by the Romneys and the Ryans.

That is why I've changed by predicted margin of victory for the president over his challenger to 52-48 percent of the vote in November, from my original prediction of 50.5%-49.5%. We are winning. "The people" are winning.
