How Do You Explain ... ? (Another Homerun By NanceGreggs)
How do Romney/GOP supporters justify their support and votes to the people in their lives.
"What noble cause did you cite when explaining to your wife, your sister, your mother, your daughter that you supported the party that believes their health and reproductive rights are best determined by old men?
Where did you find the words to express to your best friend that you voted for the party that thinks her fourteen-year-old child should be forced by law to carry her rapistís child?
But above all, I am particularly interested in how you explained to your Christ that despite his words and example, which you claim to revere and follow, you wholeheartedly supported the party that sees the homeless, the poor, the sick and the dying as completely unworthy of the care your Christ repeatedly admonished you to contribute to and participate in, every day of your lives."

2. Who doesn't include a union member among their loved ones?
Romney openly declared unions, both public and private, as enemies of the state. He clearly stated that he would institute a national "right to work" law upon day one. Teachers were his primary focus, but the whole "let Detroit go bankrupt" was about shredding UAW contracts and ending "legacy costs".
Legacy costs is another way of saying "my pension".

4. "Well, my union worker relatives are okay; it's all those OTHER lazy jobless bloodsuckers!"
Cognitive dissonance -- it's the rightwing way.
