Moneybags Mitt Romney, a man who has by one estimate about as many dollars as there are adult humans in the United States, is trying desperately to woo his way into ordinary conservative voters’ reluctant panties with outlandish claims that he is somehow “one of them” instead of just the guy who “owns them,” but he fails at this because his pick-up lines are just awkward. Mittens told a group of town hall attendees that he is part of the “80 to 90 percent of us” who belong to the middle class, which is demonstrably neither the portion of people who are middle class in the United States nor the part of it that Mitt Romney belongs to. Mitt, he’s so smooth!
From CBS News:
At a town hall meeting here, the millionaire GOP presidential contender told his audience that he favors a tax policy that will help “those who have been hurt by the Obama economy.”
“And that’s the middle class,” Romney continued. “It’s not those in the low end; it’s certainly not those in the very high end. It’s for the great middle class – the 80 to 90 percent of us in this country.”
Well, at the very least we know he’s against identifying with the poors. Gotta hang on to a little of your class! [CBS News]
