Dear Mr. Romney, I know you wouldn't want advice from somebody like me right now, but I think this might be important to you.
In my opinion, you lost because weren't likable enough. You have a hard time relating to the little guy. So my suggestion is to take some time off from being a big wheel and get a real job like in a steel mill, or on the back of a garbage truck. Do some menial labor for two years.
Live off what you earn with your hands. Break bread with the common folk. Live in a house in a neighborhood where the 47 percent live. Pay for your health insurance with the wages you make. You might have to get a second job as a waiter, or a cab driver or as a handy-man.
It might be good if you spent a couple nights in jail. Hang out with some recovering addicts and ex-felons. Sit in a couple of 12-step meetings.
Travel across the country, take a bus. Not a fancy campaign bus. Just the regular Greyhound or Trailways bus that everyday people take. Eat at a greasy spoon or spend a few hours in a neighborhood bar.
Do some babysitting. Take care of somebody's kids, take them to school, feed them and care for them when they are sick.
Hang out at the unemployment office or the emergency room. Or a barber shop. Get the real scoop on what's going on.
OK, that's my two cents. Chin up. There will be brighter days ahead.
