Mitt Is Selling Despair

FDR's campaign theme was "Happy Days Are Here Again." Mitt Romney's should be "Hard Time Killing Floor."
Mitt's message is austerity. He preaches fire and brimstone gloom that has to be met with hard scrabble suffering. He sells a melancholy misery that will be dealt with through cutting and slashing. And there will be no help for the downtrodden who must struggle through his hardships alone.

However, to the oligarch class Romney is pledging a $5 trillion gift and free reign to defraud the hoi-polloi with abandon, unfettered by government oversight. They would have a different song, one that inspires their cutthroat capitalism. Probably "Mack the Knife."
Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
