    Top Nine Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:

    1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike aura. Looks like every central casting's #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.

    2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

    3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)

    4. Can't speak in a fake, southern, "black preacher voice" when necessary.

    5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School...and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

    6. Doesn't smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today's America?

    7. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

    8. Has a family of five great sons....and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that "choice" deserves America's scorn.

    9. And one more point.....pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that's because he made that money HIMSELF.....as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad. Apparently, he didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans.

    While most of those reasons are fine with everyone, they can only remind one of the last republican president and the fact Americans often vote based on how the person appeals to them. Madison avenue and Hollywood have so inculcated the minds of Americans they think life is a TV show, and they just love JR et al. People don't dislike Romney for those often superficial qualities, they should vote for their self interest and not the interests of big money corporatism and the wealthy, which is all Romney represents. Bush II policies failed why should they work this time around?

    If you have or are looking for a private job / business and a retirement fund / investments your interests are corporations and the wealthy.

    Bush policies at least worked better than Obama policies have.

    OK, and how about the rest who are not 'left' and don't like him (hate is a bit strong; can't stand might do)?

    That's a great point, but I'm afraid that hate is what some people actually feel. They get so consumed by their ideology that they really do end up hating. How that gets fixed, I don't know.
