The Self-Esteem of the Master Class

My favorite Romney video–only a few seconds long — is here (and below). Unlike those David Corn has posted at Mother Jones, he’s not pandering to wealthy right-wing Zionists off the record. He’s publicly reveling in his own success — a perfect distillation of the Bain view of the world.

What surprises me most is not that a man like this could get the GOP nomination (considering the competition). It is that he was ever elected governor of Massachusetts.
