    Even back in the day, they recognized him as an elitist snob who was out of touch with the everyday American..

    In the 2002 Massachusetts governor's race, a focus group of six women was convened to pick apart the campaigns of Democrat Shannon O'Brien and her Republican opponent, Mitt Romney. The videotaped session, obtained by The Huffington Post, reveals what female voters thought of the future presidential hopeful.

    The answer -- not much.

    The session may be nearly a decade old, but the focus group participants are prescient in their critique of Romney. His Republican primary challengers and President Barack Obama have been deploying attack lines using criticisms and concerns expressed by these women.


    Early in the session, for example, the moderator asks their impression of the politician. A daycare program director offered a one-word reply: "Snobby."

    Others agreed with the view of Romney as an out-of-touch aristocrat. "I don't think he ever lived our lifestyle," offered one. Said another: "I just don't think he understands the problems of the poor or the middle class." The idea of Romney changing the oil in his car or driving a trash truck got a chuckle.

    Not only does Mitt Romney appear out of touch but he is pandering to all the right wing hate groups and then he tries to paint himself up as a tolerant, progressive minded person. It is impossible to gauge this man because he flipflops all over the damned place. Can we really trust Mitt Romneyicon_question.gif

    I think the answer is a big NO.
    And I think fair-minded people on the left right and in the middle recognize that.

    I don't fault the man for having money, but he comes across as completely phony. Like when he toured the south and said "ya'll" and mentioned how he ate grits in an attempt to appeal to southerners.

    If the people fell for it, then they deserve Romney.

    It's a huge problem with him for likability - He flaunts his money and his wealth and it's going to give him an image problem when it comes to relating to 99% of Americans and their economic status.
