When I listen to Mitt Romney, I often find myself shaking my head. How is it possible for a man who has spent so many years in public service to be so far removed from the public? Sure, money, a commodity that Romney could use to fill every missile silo in North America, is the best insulator from the woes of real people, but anyone that so much as reads a paper should know that average Americans are lucky to keep their existing cars on the road, let alone drive multiple luxury cars. A candidate for President of all the people of the United States should at least pretend to be in touch, but not Romney. Nope. Romney brags that he drives two vehicles and his wife has not one, but two, Cadillacs.
In a speech in Detroit, Romney said (from Raw Story):
“I actually love this state,” the candidate opined. “This feels good, being back in Michigan. You know, the trees are the right height, the streets are just right. I like the fact that most of the cars I see are Detroit-made automobiles.”
“I drive a Mustang and a Chevy pickup truck. Ann drives a couple of Cadillacs, actually. And I used to have a Dodge truck. So, I used to have all three covered,” he added.
So, to Mitt Romney, I dedicate this song by the Clash, a true Reagan era, working class, albeit British, band.
