There but for the grace of God go I.  I am pretty much a centrist.  I'm the guy Romney needs to convince.  And so far hasn't.  He will have 2 chances with the 2 debates, but I suspect he will just talk generalities.

I took Romney's "47%" remark basically as  callous business analysis.  That is his nature.  He views things from a "business" point of view.  He did it at Bain and made a fortune.  Bain would focus on a particular company. The fact that many lost their jobs as a result of Bain's action didn't matter to Bain.  Those workers just go on their way. 

The problem with trying to run a Government on those same principles is those workers are still members of society.  They can't just go on their way.

What does a black mom with 3 children, 1 autistic do when the father is in jail or just disappeared? 

What does a self-employed person with no disability insurance because of unaffordability do when he suffers a permanent stroke?

What about all those veterans returning home having suffered major injuries do?

What does that person suffering from Alzheimer's do?

What does that elderly person permanently wheelchair bound relying only on SS and medicaire do?

I can go on and on.

Running a business and running a country are two drastically different things.
