  • Romney can't lead a more populist GOP

    In 2012, Romney told a crowd that 47 percent of the country "pay no income tax ... are dependent upon government," and that "I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives" -- not the way to win blue-collar voters.
