Some of them at least think that because Mitt made gobs of money, he must understand the economy. Unfortunately, making a lot of money doesn't necessarily mean someone knows or cares about the economy as a whole; they've just mastered the niche(s) they operate in.
Knowing how to maneuver in or manipulate the system is as likely to make you gobs of money as great talent, great ideas or hard work. Look at Warren Buffett or Donald Trump.
Romney knows a bunch of conservative "copybook maxims" about the economy and sprinkles them about. Not the same thing as understanding the economy -- or caring how it affects anyone else!
I will definitely vote for him over Obama! How about you?
