What Mitt Romney is Really About

"We must not forget what this election is really about: defeating Barack Obama."

Those are the words Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney chose to launch his latest fundraising drive, and they're very revealing. Mitt isn't worried about the economy. (Probably because, according to his own tax returns, he made more than $42 million in the last two years alone). He isn't worried about the millions of out-of-work Americans. (In fact, in a recent speech, he said he likes firing people.) He certainly isn't worried about cleaning up Wall Street, not when the top three contributors to his campaign this election cycle are Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase & Co, and Morgan Stanley. And as much as he rails against taxes, Romney gave away more money in charity than he paid in income taxes (which is, I'm sure, a problem most Americans would love to have).

If you ask me, it seems pretty obvious Mitt Romney is focused on the wrong thing.

This isn't a competition.

This election isn't about Republicans vs. Democrats, conservatives vs. liberals, rich vs. poor, or race. It's about daily survival for millions of Americans. It's about trying to feed your children and, in some cases, your grandchildren. It's about trying to hold on to what you've worked your whole life for, and watching it slip away.

Until Mr. Romney understands that, he isn't fit to be President.
