two fundraisers held last evening in Boca Raton. Romney was feted by approximately 250 people at the first funder, I believe $2,500 to get in the door, invitation only and $10,000 to have your photo taken with him. The second party was given by someone affiliated with Exxon Mobil, also a pricey event. The woman who said he was brilliant and charming was not on camera but also stated she had no doubt he would be in the White House as our next President.

Romney was most likely brilliant and charming, these were his "people." Ultra wealthy, older and white. The local CBS did the coverage...Secret Service surrounded him and the convoy of silver-gray SUVs made quite the entrance in the gated community where the events were held. I see no schedule that includes his speaking to we mere mortals, the middle-class, seniors. This woman is typical of the republican thinking. He's handsome, white, charming and just what we want a President to "look" like. She couldn't have made it any clearer. I doubt she is concerned with his views on foreign policy, unemployment, jobs, etc. He looks right...I did not sleep well last night.
