PROOF: Mitt Romney is the candidate of the rich, not us common folk
Rachel Maddow had a great segment describing Super Tuesday exit poll results, which showed that increased voter participation among the rich pushed Mitt Romney over the edge. Maddow showed that Romney lost in every other income bracket in Ohio and Michigan.
“I’m not concerned about the very poor,” said Mitt Romney.
What a statement! These polls merely add to the pile of evidence that suggests Mitt Romney is just another rich guy looking out for the rich. If lower and middle class voters feel that Romney does not share their values, they will vote for the other guy. That’s exactly what we are seeing here. The dynamic between the 99% and 1% has never been more stark.
Let’s face it. In the end, this is an election driven by monied interests, and super-secret Super PAC money. It’s merely a playground for a guy like Romney, someone who feels entitled, that the safety net catches all of “our poor,” that “corporations are people,” and that dogs like being strapped to the roof in a kennel.
What’s going on America?
