A Romney thing

I'm not going to do much commenting on the U.S election to come this year and that's for three reasons:

1) Not LatAm
2) I have no preference whatsoever between two poor candidates on offer
3) It doesn't matter who wins anyway.

But I'm going to cede and throw out this excerpt from this report today because, quite frankly, you can't make this shit up.

"A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. "I don't think the common person is getting it," she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. "Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.

"We've got the message," she added. "But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies -- everybody who's got the right to vote -- they don't understand what's going on. I just think if you're lower income -- one, you're not as educated, two, they don't understand how it works, they don't understand how the systems work, they don't understand the impact.""
