It's about families trying to keep asthmatic children safe during heat waves and dirty air days. It's about families struggling to hold on to livelihoods in the midst of drought. It's about families draining nest eggs to rebuild homes after fire, floods, and storm surges.
After losing in 2012 Mitt Romney stated that he is done running for president... but this is 2014 and rumors are swirling. Before too much is made of Mitt Romney chances in 2016, it is important to realize that history is very much against there ever being a President Romney.

If you think your office job is rough, know this: Tina worked the front desk at a YMCA after being turned down for jobs at a Ruby Tuesday and a theater box-office.
