12. This all stems from Romney's sense of entitlement
I see it in the business and legal worlds within which I work. I think we all see it. People of Rmoney's wealth, status, and class - the 1% - believe they are also entitled to these positions, Governor, President, by virtue of their status.
These non-excuse excuses of theirs, short-sighted as they are, have always worked and they assume always will.
In addition, these people are bullies. They think, because they have experienced it, that if they throw their weight around, they can get what they want.
I think it is really good that the Dems and Obama are standing strong. It's they only thing that ever works, has ever worked, with bullies. Typically, Dems / liberals back down. Gore. Kerry. Dukakis. They back down to the bullying. This is the first I can think of in my lifetime (maybe since LBJ) that we are seeing the Democrats have a spine and give it back to the righties.
I don't know, maybe it was VietNam? Civil rights backlash? Or maybe just in our nature.
