Mitt Romney struggles to convince voters that he understands the problems of the 99 percent, fails...

Mitt Romney says he learns about what it’s like to struggle in a difficult economy by sitting down and chatting with regular people. But the Republican presidential candidate doesn’t want anybody to see it — and his campaign won’t say who he meets with or when the meetings occur.

In interviews and on the campaign trail, Romney regularly says that he learns about the struggling economy by talking to people affected by it. Earlier this week, he said he meets with families “almost every day.” On Friday, Romney said the talks are “off the record” — and that he agrees to keep private the names of the people he meets with.

I wonder if Ann Romney sits in on these secret meetings with regular people? If so, do you think she wears $990 t-shirts in an effort to "dress down"?
