Brooks lays into Romney for his recent comments exposed in the Mother Jones video.
He describes how Romney and many Republicans view much of America as lazy freeloaders, but that the fact is that “America remains one of the hardest-working nations on earth. Americans work longer hours than just about anyone else. Americans believe in work more than almost any other people.”
He concludes that “as a description of America today, Romney’s comment is a country-club fantasy. It’s what self-satisfied millionaires say to each other. It reinforces every negative view people have about Romney.”
Given the state of the economy, it is incredible that an incumbent President still has a chance to win. But the attitudes of Romney and Republicans are so extreme that Obama just might win anyhow.
