The Democratic National Committee put out a new ad on Friday, featuring Mitt Romney. I doubt Romney was a willing participant in this video, as some of the things said in the ad were a bit unsettling.
The ad below shows a clip of Mitt Romney expressing his preferred method of handling foreclosures, and the words he spoke would put fear into the hearts of any family who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of losing their home. “Don’t try and stop the foreclosure process,” Romney said. “Let it run its course and hit the bottom, allowing investors to buy their homes, put renters in them, fix the homes, and let it turn around and come back up. The right course is to let markets work. And in order to get markets to work and to help people, the best we can do is to get the economy going.”
In a conference call with reporters, Brad Woodhouse, the communications director for the DNC said;
“To Mitt Romney, houses aren’t places where people raise their families and build lives. They’re investments to make a profit. Mitt Romney is out of touch. He’s out of touch with what’s going on with this country, he’s out of touch with the middle class.”
Out of touch with the middle class correctly describes the millionaire Mitt Romney. He has never had to deal with the misfortune of losing his home, or should I say homes, or should I say mansions. So it is totally natural for him to think of investors over families. Imagine that decision-making in the White House, as Mitt Romney attempts to become the Republican nominee to take on President Obama in 2012.
