Like everyone else on Maui, I got a lot of election mailings. One in particular made a real impression. It was addressed to me personally, "Dear Judith," and signed "Mitt." The four-page letter included an invitation to become a Romney Victory Founding Member with a donation of only $50,000. This would have entitled me to be admitted to the Republican National Convention where I would have had an "opportunity to witness history."
I've thought for a while that Mr. Romney was out of touch with the mood of our country and the needs of our people. His letter to this retired schoolteacher makes me wonder if he isn't living in some kind of alternate universe, populated entirely with people like the Koch brothers and Donald Trump, and the rest of his friends who think that $50,000 is small change.
