Quiet rooms and Romney


I have written a few things here about inequality-social and economic- and between my thinking about that and this article, Mitt Romney and the Quiet Room, I’ve just had it brought home to me why I am so very opposed to Mitt Romney taking the helm of this country.

It is because he doesn’t talk about inequality. He talks about jobs, but not about  how low wages are. He talks about immigration only in the context of xenophobia and “border security,” not about people coming great distances to build a better life. He talks about women’s issues only to the extent of saying that his wife tells him that economic issues are what matter to women.

It is as though not only are matters of inequality not important to him, he doesn’t even conceive how they could be important, since they don’t affect rich white straight men with power.
