John Boehner says Romney’s wealth won’t hurt him: “the American people don’t want to vote for a loser”
http://thinkprogress.org/special/2012/04/29/473280/boehner-romneys-wealth-wont-hurt-him-because-the-american-people-dont-want-to-vote-for-a-loser/

Amazing perspective on what constitutes winners and losers from the GOP’s John Boehner:

Asked by CNN’s Candy Crowley whether Romney’s wealth presented him with a “hill to climb” in tough economic times, Boehner said: “No. The American people don’t want to vote for a loser. They don’t want to vote for someone that hasn’t been successful. I think Mitt Romney has an opportunity to show the American people that they, too, can succeed.”

Romney has consistently reminded voters of his wealth, noting that he is friends with the owners of NASCAR and pro football teams, that his wife has “a couple of Cadillacs,” or that he doesn’t consider $374,000 in speaking fees to be “very much.” That top Republicans consider Americans who don’t enjoy those luxuries losers or unsuccessful, however, may be why its nominee has had such a tough time gaining favor with average voters throughout the 2012 election.

It will be interesting to see how many conservative “losers” will give their vote to the party protecting corporations and the wealthiest individuals in our current economy — and how many will support the presidential candidate who exemplifies exactly what went wrong with the American Dream of social and economic mobility.
