Has Mitt Romney ever been unemployed or broke? Has he ever lost his home or car? Has he ever experienced being laid off? Has he ever been passed over for promotion? Has he ever been profiled? Has he ever applied for a job only to be told the position had been filled?

Has he ever spent as much time on his knees as I have? Am I welcome in his church?

Has he ever thought about Social Security and Medicare for himself instead of the lifetime pension and health care plan of a politician? (At taxpayers expense!)

If Gov. Romney were on Social Security and Medicare, I don’t think he would be so inclined to destroy them.

If he doesn’t understand us, how can he represent us! God bless America, and God bless Romney.
