"despises" is pretty strong. "misunderstands" is probably more accurate.
The crazy thing about Romney's comments that I haven't heard anyone talking about was that he was guiltier than Obama of giving "gifts" (huge tax breaks) to his base. If Romney hadn't done that - if he had said no tax breaks of any kind for anyone, he would have lost by 15 pts.
