Romney, Obama: Why they have trouble connecting

Washington (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is a multimillionaire who wanted elevators for his luxury cars and whose wife wears $1,000 designer T-shirts.

Barack Obama, even before being elected president, was an academic intellectual who made millions writing books and then became a professorial media darling who hobnobbed with Hollywood celebrities and Wall Street investment bankers.

    I can't wait for the debates! Obama is going to kill Romney and you will see how he's going to overshoot by a big difference. Romney is running on lies and he's lies will be exposed on the debates and most american will the accomplishments this administration is conquer with a due nothing congress.

    Well, when it's all said and done what will be important is who the American people will connect with and that will be Romney. After almost four years of this inept President the American people will be looking for a much needed change. Romney may not be the complete answer, but he's sure the better choice here.

    Both are bought and paid for by forces who want to control the masses through economic and military means.

    This morning I read that some health insurances are going to keep some of the benefits Obamacare forced on them. Like parents can keep kids on their insurances until age 26. If this is true that some health insurances (United Health being one) is going to keep what was forced on them, explan to me why Obamacare is bad? Why did it take Obamacare to get the health insurances to do things better? Why did GOP not want health care to be better?

    Wasn't the bishop in Vegas just recently? Didn't he meet ex actress Nancy Reagan? Didn't he allow nugent, an aging celebrity rocker speak for him against the President? What about celebrity kid rock?
    Just because the bishop has no personality and is less active than a wooden statue doesn't mean he is not trying to hang to somebody's coattails regardless of what they say and who they are. jealous much?
    The Obamas know what it means to grow up middle class and work for a living. The bishop and his stay at home wife have no idea of what the middle class goes through, never mind the poor!
    The comparison is quite clear and I rather have somebody who doesn't need car elevators, among other rich things, for his ritzy mansion La Jolla, CA!!!
