Romney Hits Gingrich Conservative Credentials After Florida Win – Businessweek
Romney, 64, pushed back today on questions about whether he is out of touch with ordinary people after remarking to CNN in an interview that “I’m not concerned about poor people.”
He told reporters aboard on his campaign plane that his comment had been taken out of context.
“No, no, no, no,” Romney protested when asked about his statement. “I’ve said throughout the campaign my focus, my concern, my energy is going to be devoted to helping middle- income people, all right?” He said poor people have an “ample safety net,” including Medicaid, housing vouchers, food stamps, and the Earned Income Tax Credit.
“If there are people that are falling through the cracks, I want to fix that. Wealthy people are doing fine. But my focus in the campaign is on middle-income people,” Romney said.
C’mere Willard, I want to tell you something you don’t understand and won’t believe when I tell you…people…pardon…Americans….fall through the cracks every day. Every. Day. (part of this is caused by the pressure Wall Street creates for constantly higher returns…but you know that….well..one side of that)
You seem to have understood this while trying to act like a moderate in Massachusetts. What happened?
Does Mittens have a clue to what is even happening in this country?
