Romney Rejects His Nautural Supporters
Mitt Romney's speech to wealthy donors in Florida was just right for the traditional GOP base of wealthy business people. Ironically, his popular support in the electorate is strongest in the states that are most dependent upon government support. They are also the states which display more of the bad behaviors that he attributes to the 47% of the population that he and his Florida donors detest. He is lucky that they don't see themselves as among the 47%. They form the heart of the Tea Party, and they feel superior to the "undeserving" beneath them which consists primarily of minorities.
