You likely won’t get any reason based on policy – most liberals don’t do the homework required to articulate any policy position. The main complaint I hear is, “He’s just another rich white guy, who got his money by taking advantage of poor people.”
A few will say they just can’t support him because he’s a Mormon. And now, after the debate, some say Romney is a liar, although anybody who looks closely sees a straight-laced family man, and the accusations are based on what his opponents claim about him, rather than anything he has said himself.
Throughout history there have always been rich people. Always will be. Admittedly, some people became wealthy by taking advantage of others – including many public officials.
Harry Reid, for instance, came from very humble beginnings. He never held a private job, choosing instead a career in politics. He is now one of the wealthiest members of Congress, on the modest salary of a public servant, leaving a slime trail of corruption behind him .
Ask any liberal why he or she likes Harry Reid. Again, you likely won’t get any reason based on policy. They just like him.
Barack Obama is also wealthy. Liberals love him. He’s a rich, black guy. He was briefly employed in the private sector, but his legal work mainly centered on government-related issues. He made some money writing and selling two autobiographies which were successful because of his involvement in government.
So, liberals. Do you dislike Romney because he is rich? No, Obama is rich and you like him. Do you dislike Romney because he is white? No, Harry Reid is white and you like him. Do you dislike Romney because he is a Mormon? No, Reid is a Mormon, too. And rich.
Maybe liberals dislike Romney because they now think he is a liar. Well, no, that can’t be right – they love Bill Clinton, and he was impeached by Congress for lying. Oh, and he is rich. And white.
Some say liberals vote for the candidate who promises them the most stuff. I pray for the future of our kids if it’s true. That’s just immoral.
I have no problem with a person becoming wealthy. In fact, deep inside, I think even most liberals believe in the American Dream. What is important, though, is how a person becomes wealthy.
I rather like the idea of having a leader who has built wealth with his own skill, judgment, and hard work, and especially if he helped others achieve wealth and success. We need leaders who possess economic skills and don’t need to enrich themselves via government.
Why does that bug liberals so much?

Yes, the strong get more,
While the weak ones fade.
Empty pockets don’t ever make the grade.
Mama may have, Papa may have,
But God bless the child that’s got his own!
That’s got his own.
