Why does it matter? Because Romney would be just another Ford, Dole, McCain loser in the general!
Actually, it goes farther than that.
WHen he has 3 mil in this overseas acct, 3 mil in that one 3 mil in another and on and on and he's worth 250 million dollars, at what point does he care about the worries, concerns and lives that the rest of us lead?
His kids all go to the best private schools. They have the best security that money can buy. SO what does he care about education bills etc.
He spends more on electricity in one of his mansions, like Algore, than most of us have to spend for an entire month for our entire lives and everything in them. What does he care about how the economy does or how many are unemployed? He's set and being president, he isn't gonna get poorer, he's going to follow all the politico's national trends and get richer by far.
He can afford all the health care anybody can possibly want, so what does he care about the state of health care in this country.
He's got whole legions of tax attorneys and accountants at his disposal, so what does he care about how high taxes are, he'll just hire more people to help find new ways to evade them anyways.
What does he care about the way we live? He doesn't. He couldn't care less.
