The narrative of the Romney campaign as portrayed by most major media last week has been one of a tone-deaf, elitist candidate.
In the 1993 movie "Dave" the faux president (played by Kevin Kline) calls in his best friend (played by Charles Grodin) and they stay up all night balancing the federal budget, not by raising taxes, but by cutting unnecessary and wasteful spending.
