I am very disappointed in America, at least in Republican Americans. I have been a Mitt supporter for awhile, esp with all of the fuss here in Iowa for the past 9 months leading to the caucus.
It is sad to me that the only complaint people really have against him is how perfect he is. He isn't genuine enough, he is arrogant, he is spending his own money on his campaign. Doesn't that just mean his is passionate and has no accountability to special interests? How is being rich and successful a bad thing? Do we want someone who has been unsuccessful leading our country to success? And has he ever been any more arrogant than any other candidate? I don't get it.
The only thing I can imagine it that people dont' like Mormons. I had had this told to my face. And, people hate someone who has it all...hundreds of millions, a great family, success in multiple sectors, etc. Not sure why you don't want that for a president.
Too bad all of the conservative media waited too long in sending out their endorsements of Mitt. The liberal media have been against Mitt from the beginning. They downplayed his win in the Iowa straw poll and rarely give him coverage for anything until now when they are calling for him (as the #2 guy) to quit. If he wins or loses, it seems the other guy makes the headlines.
