The Romney campaign last month held another of its fundraisers restricted to the Super-Rich at David Koch’s mansion in the Hamptons. The $50,000-per-plate fundraiser was typical of similar events held by Gov. Romney. There is no doubt that billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson intend to buy themselves a President. Unfortunately, unless ordinary folks wake up, they may be successful. But I have to believe that the message from events like this one will eventually sink in to working men and women and retirees, many of whom have been actually voting for candidates like Romney, and against their own economic interests. When that message is heard and understood, I predict you will see the momentum swinging strongly in favor of President Obama.
Gov. Romney – even when dressed out in his starched and obviously new blue jeans – simply doesn’t understand the problems and concerns of ordinary folks. His 1% agenda is driven by men like the Koch brothers and others and offers little – if anything – to the vast majority of Americans. If the Obama campaign doesn’t sell this message, it will be their own fault. They have a golden opportunity to turn a close election into one that won’t be that close but they must stay on a strong message that turns loose the power of the American people between now and election day in November. I will take “people power” anytime over the big money men who have to like the 1% Romney agenda because they formulated it.
I don’t believe there will be many folks voting for President Obama who can afford to pay $50,000 for a meal with their candidate. But the candidate whose agenda excludes 99% of the American people hasn’t had much trouble attracting those who can afford to give millions and they are pumping huge sums of money into the Romney campaign and into the SuperPACs. Any person who believes that the billionaires bankrolling Gov. Romney have any interest in helping the 99% who will be left behind in the event Romney becomes President will learn the hard way that they are badly mistaken. But unfortunately for them – and actually for the country – it will be too late to do anything to rectify their mistake.
