Mitt Romney made an attempt at humor while on a conference call with Wisconsin voters. He made a joke about his father shutting down a Michigan factory and moving those jobs to Wisconsin. Apparently he was trying to look good to Wisconsin residents, indicating that their state was a better choice than Michigan. He doesn't care about Michigan any longer; they already voted.
This is an example of all the things WRONG with Mitt Romney.
Romney has no concept of a budget
He has no concept of money or what it's like to be a working-class, middle American. He was raised in the top one percent and has remained there throughout his entire adult life. He has never had to decide which bill to pay on time and which to pay late. He has never had to wait and save for anything. He simply doesn't know the value of a days work nor the value of a dollar.
He'll say anything to get what he wants. He's making jokes to potential voters in Wisconsin about Michigan residents losing jobs! He already got in trouble for saying he thought Detroit should have gone bankrupt. Now, he's insulting Michigan again. He must really hate that state.
Romney hasn't had to go into the office to work in over a decade. Do you really think a guy that hasn't held a job in over 10 years can fix the economy and create jobs? He doesn't even have a job.
Paul Ryan said this about Romney: "Here in Wisconsin we appreciate people who are successful. We reward hard work. Since when is that a bad thing?"
Well, Paul, it's a bad thing when the "successful" person is applying for a job that requires a certain level of loyalty, diplomacy, sleepless nights, conviction, decision-making, stability, and relatability.
Romney has none of those traits. He mentions that his friends own pro sports teams (George W. Bush owned a sports team, look what he did to the country); he insults working Americans repeatedly; when he speaks, wait a few minutes and the answer to the same question will be different; people in his own party cannot even relate to him.
America's economic state is not a joke. Being President of the United States is not the party that Romney thinks it will be. After the celebration ends, real work begins. Mitt Romney doesn't have a clue what that entails.
