Why Mitt Romney Lost
The supporters of Mitt Romney, and those that voted for him, also want things. They want stuff. The oil companies want to continue to make obscene profits and continue to be subsidized by those voters that elected President Obama. The Super PAC contributors, who are a little pissed at Mitt right now, and the lobbyists also want stuff. They want the government to eliminate regulations, laws and fairness; and taxes so their appropriation of wealth can continue exponentially and they can continue on their merry way. And they want the government to send contracts and taxpayer monies their way; and grant more subsides, entitlements, favorable legislation, and tax breaks.
Mitt just can't get it. He is cognitively out of touch, not only with the America of today, but also with the political philosophy that was brought forth by our Founding Fathers. This election truly was a battle between the financial aristocracy and populous democracy.
