Mitt Romney Thinks Wall Street Critics are Envious
1 year ago
Romney's privilege is showing up more and more.
In his quest to snatch the Republican presidential nomination out of the hands of victory, Mitt Romney has made it clear he doesn't understand Wall Street critics. The financial crisis and income inequality being what it is, is not stopping Romney from pretending like poor people don't exist and so he prefers that if you are going to talk about class issues do it in private.
I'm pretty sure this is not going to play well with the 99% but it's not like Romney is in touch with the majority of the country anyway.
Romney has said that President Obama has promulgated the "politics of envy" which really sounds bad but it's worse that when asked to clarify Romney doubled down and said that if you are going to talk at all about income inequality and class issues then you should "do it in a quiet room."
Romney said, "I think it's about envy. I think it's about class warfare." "I think when you have a president encouraging the idea of dividing America based on 99 percent versus one percent you've opened up a whole new wave of approach in this country which is entirely inconsistent with the concept of 'one nation under God.'
This is particularly interesting coming from the guy who has admitted he has never been poor or thins people who need a salary should never run for office.
