9. They only mention it now that it's in their interest to do so.

It's bad enough that Romney, with his history at Bain (and what that meant for hundreds of American workers) and of course his proposed round of cuts in programs (and cuts in taxes for TOP incomes...), should presume to talk about stagnant income and/or promise higher wages (I see nothing in his 59 points that will address that).

But what really burns me up is that Karl Rove's group has been running ads for months in an effort to target women in the sandwich generation (i.e., with aging parents and dependent children). There's much wringing of hands that insurance premiums are rising and "Mom's Medicare has been cut," etc., etc.

Well, then, where was the Rove empathy/sympathy/outrage when premiums were going up during two Bush terms? Or when the buying power of ordinary people took hit after hit? Or when stable, gainfully employed people were completely shut out of the housing market due to the bubble?
