It’s been very frustrating to listen to and ready so many of the prominent conservatives talk about how horrible McCain is and how wonderful Romney is and how Romney is the only one who can win. Here’s the problem folks, most of those folks have lost touch with real people. They talk to mostly true believers via their professions and don’t work with “normal” folks. If they worked in a diverse workplace or be in the mix with something like Little League, Pop Warner or other youth sports or activities they’d understand that many folks really don’t like THEM. “Normal” folks, in general, want something different than a perfect and slick looking white guy. Sorry folks but it is true. Folks don’t care that Romney is a true-blue conservative, they look at him, know he’s changed a ton of positions in the last few years and don’t trust him. The age of the smile-for-the-camera-baby-kissing-I’m-so-perfect politician is over. Good. People are crying out for leadership that is transparent and real. The old way of politics is over and it’s time to realize that an old and crotchety guy who ain’t so perfect might be better than the Mr. Perfect guy. Call it what you want but it’s the new reality.
Frankly, I’m tired of people from their blinded perches, either commentators or politicians, without any grasp of reality and they way people live their lives. Get back into the community and actually work with people who are a bit different. We mostly live paycheck-to-paycheck, spend a ton of time raising our kids and really don’t give a rip about who is more conservative. We honestly don’t spend all our time beating ourselves over the head on these folks. When the conservative elites make such a big deal about something we even get skeptical. “We were meant to live for so much more” than all this silliness.
