Sunday Talk: A rags-to-riches story

Posted by admin | Posted in Politics | Posted on 31-03-2012-05-2008


Like George and Weezie Jefferson before him, Mitt Romney began movin’ on up this week. Not in the polls, mind you—which continue to show President Obama leading him by healthy margins, both nationally and in key battleground states—but rather in the cultural zeitgeist.

The presumptive GOP nominee also saw the ranks of his “super fans” swell with the endorsements of party luminaries Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio.

And, as if that weren’t enough, Romney’s telling of a humorous anecdote surely went a long way toward endearing him to the millions of Americans whose fathers have closed down factories.

When you put this all together, it’s hard to understand how his unfavorable rating remains so severely high.
