As Mitt Romney laughs while "apologizing" for bullying a fellow high school student and mocks NASCAR fans' plastic rain slickers, he seems unaware that he comes off as Richie Rich's evil twin.
Part of Romney's image problem is that he leads not as a selfless Lincolnesque statesman but as an Ayn Rand greed worshiper. Setting the standard for his campaign, Romney gave a high-profile plug to a company owned and run by major donors. His son has followed in those ethically challenged footsteps by using his campaign connections to launch a business. And a campaign adviser benefitted from illicitly leaked confidential government information.
