I could watch only about three minutes of this eight-minute video of interviewed Romney supporters at a Ohio rally. Ignorance on parade. It's appalling.
Still, I needed no more than three minutes; it's the same, compressed ignorance we've been watching for months. When asked what Romney's plan is to fix the economy or lower the deficit, his supporters haven't a clue. One would think they'd be too embarrassed to offer nothing but slack-jawed bewilderment to such questions, but that's all they've got.
Again, these Romneyites' vacant enthusiasm is sickeningly, depressingly familiar. I recall a PBS Newshour piece of several months past in which Floridian retirees were being asked about ObamaCare as a point of political contention. "I don't like it," said one elderly white woman of the healthcare package. Why? asked the interviewer. "I don't really know. I just don't like it," came her follow-up response.
Had a white, quarter-billionaire president passed some version of RomneyCare, I have the distinct feeling that that retired lady in Florida would have positively raved about it.
