Mitt Romney appeared on CNN's Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien this morning to gloat over yesterday's win in Florida and instead told her he doesn't care about poor people. Romney said his "current focus is not on the poor" as "we have a safety net there," and he instead plans to focus on all those suffering members of the middle-class.
Oh Mitties. Yesterday with the singing, today with the alienating, classist comments. He went on to say:
If [the safety net] needs repair, I'll fix it. I'm not concerned about the very rich; they're doing just fine. I'm concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling...We will hear from the Democrat party on the plight of the poor and there's no question, it's not good being poor, and we have a safety net to help those that are very poor."
We should all take a cue from Max Read's girlfriend and hide our faces the next time he speaks. It's only a safe precaution.
