    I don't know what the big deal is about Romney's comment that he isn't concerned about the poor because they have a safety net. Everyone knows that, especially the poor who take advantage of every government program, whether it's food stamps, welfare, pell grants, etc. The middle class works hard and gets paid just enough that they don't qualify for any of those programs, but can never get ahead, often living paycheck to paycheck and overwhelmed with debt. It wouldn't take much to send them into the ranks of the poor and this economy has done that to many.

    Romney is right to be more concerned with the plight of the middle class. That is what most of us are. Concentrating on the issues that will make things better for the middle class will, in reality, make things better for the poor, as well.

    Romney is more in touch with all of us than anyone will give him credit for. The hullaballoo about his latest gaffe is much ado about nothing.

    As a small business owner I would appreciate a little more study & thorough analysis coming out of the White House rather than political paybacks & dogma. Working on the nations balance sheet by a successful business man could do us all a lot of good.

    Newt will lose. Mitt will win. How's that for stylistic extremes?
