why do ordinary citizens - any citizens have to connect with the President - who on earth can connect with Obama - and the senile Joe Biden - who thinks Obama understands anything - he only understands street talk and Chicago thug politics. Mitt Romney knows more about life, family life, people, charity, etc. than Obama every dreamed of knowing. Mitt Romney does not connect to anyone unable to function properly - and Obama gins up the envy, jealousy, revenge in those people.
No one is going to become a best bud of the POTUS - we need a leader, a person with vision for the country - we do not need to 'connect' to the President.
