Being a millionaire many times over, Romney has about as much understanding of the worries regular people face as Kim Jong Il did about North Koreans (and no, I’m not comparing Mitt Romney to Kim Jong Il).
The United States is one of the most divided nations on earth in terms of income – a fact that is becoming more and more relevant whether Mitt Romney likes it or not. The Occupy Wall St movement is not going anywhere, the mainstream media is now picking it up as a serious issues, and the President is making it a central theme in his pre-campaign speeches.
If Romney doesn’t get this, he’s in for a rude awakening come general election time.
