Mitt Romney's out-of-reality gaffes

It looks like Mitt Romney is set to be the 2012 Republican Presidential candidate that will lose by the smallest margin to President Obama this November. The Republican Primary is such a joke, just like the GOP themselves. The most disappointing choices imaginable: Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul.

But how close is Mitt Romney to reality and effective in reaching out to the 99.5 percent of Americans making less than one million a year? Whether his head is stuck in the clouds or he's been so inundated with seeing so many extravagant Mormon temples and luxurious mansions, Mitt is totally out of touch with reality and America.

Mitt's campaign is by far the wealthiest of the GOP candidates, spending at least five times as much as second runner Rick Santorum. However, he barely get by with racking up primary votes in this long drawn-out GOP primary with little enthusiasm. In terms of winning vote effectiveness per dollar spent, Mitt is clearly the worst of them all.

So why is Mitt Romney having so much trouble reaching out and winning the hearts and votes of America?

Mitt Romney's 9 worst clueless-rich-man gaffes

1. He pals around with NASCAR team owners
NASCAR races tend to be fertile ground for Republican presidential candidates, so Romney went to the (rain-delayed) inaugural race of the NASCAR season, the Daytona 500, on Feb. 26. When an AP reporter asked Mitt if he follows NASCAR, Romney replied: "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends that are NASCAR team owners."

2. His wife drives "a couple of Cadillacs"
Speaking to the Detroit Economic Club on Feb. 24, Romney went off-script to speak of his love for his home state, where the cars are made in Detroit and "the trees are the right height." Mitt was also quick to remind the crowd that he drives Michigan-made cars — a Ford Mustang and a Chevy pickup — and that his wife "drives a couple of Cadillacs."

3. He's not concerned about the very poor
Elated over his campaign-saving victory in the Florida primary, Romney interrupted his victory lap on Feb. 1 to tell CNN's Soledad O'Brien: "I'm not concerned about the very poor.

4. He thinks $374,000 is "not very much" money
On Jan. 17, after a week of hounding from his GOP rivals and the media, Romney agreed to release his tax returns. The former private-equity businessman continues to make most of his income from investments, but also noted that he gets "speakers' fees from time to time, but not very much." The problem is that "not very much" was $374,000 last year, says Michael Gerson in The Washington Post.

5. He likes "being able to fire people"
On Jan. 9, Romney talked up his prescription for health insurance reform, suggesting that insurance policies shouldn't necessarily be tied to your employer. That means, he said, "if you don't like what [insurers] do, you could fire them. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me."

6. He claims to have feared the pink slip
A day earlier, on Jan. 8, Romney commiserated with a group of New Hampshire voters, saying that he knows what it's like to "worry whether you're going to get fired," and that when he first started working in finance, "there were a couple of times I wondered whether I was going to get a pink slip."

7. He casually bets $10,000
Perry and Romney had a pretty heated exchange at the Dec. 10 GOP debate in Des Moines, Iowa. Perry claimed that Romney was trying to bury his past support for health insurance mandates, and when he wouldn't back down, Romney stuck out his hand and said: "Rick, I'll tell you what. Ten thousand bucks? Ten thousand dollar bet?" That was a "huge unforced error" that played right to Romney's greatest vulnerability: He "seems rich, elite, and out of touch,"

8. He believes corporations are people
About a month before Occupy Wall Street came into existence, Romney was challenged by hecklers at the Iowa State Fair on Aug. 11. When Romney said he opposed raising taxes to pay for entitlement programs, a man shouted out "Corporations!" Undaunted, Romney shot back: "Corporations are people, my friend.... Of course they are. Everything corporations earn also goes to people."

9. He jokes about being unemployed
Romney held a coffee chat with a group of Florida job-seekers last June, telling them, "I'm also unemployed." The unemployed voters laughed good-naturedly, but not everybody found the quip funny. Romney has a "gift for odd, awkward, delusional gaffes,"

  • Where have all the good men gone? I can't remember that last time a man worthy of being the President of the greatest nation on Earth ran for the spot.
    In response to #8, corporations are, in fact, people. Just a lot of people. Corporations can kinda be compared to governments in that they are all, in fact, made up of people. But the people on the top of all the good chaps seem heartless to the rest of us (many of them probably are).
