Romney Donor: Poor Uneducated Commoners Don't Get It


LA Times Story: Romney Fund Raiser in Southampton, NY
A line of Range Rovers, BMWs, Porsche roadsters and one gleaming, cherry red Ferrari began queuing outside Perelman's estate long before Romney arrived, as campaign aides and staffers in white polo shirts emblazoned with the logo of Perelman's property checked off names under tight security.

Some of those waiting in line were eager to give the candidate some advice about the next four months of what is, at present, a tight presidential race.

. . . A New York City donor a few cars back, who would not give her name for similar reasons, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting.

"I don't think the common person is getting it," she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. "Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them."

"We've got the message," she added. "But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies — everybody who's got the right to vote — they don't understand what's going on. I just think if you're lower income — one, you're not as educated, two, they don't understand how it works, they don't understand how the systems work, they don't understand the impact."


Now that was pathetically funny!

Oh, but lady, I do understand the impact and I do understand how it works. I understand that the system is broken. And I know you are a foolish twit to say those things, you condescending b**ch.

I enjoyed the conditional addition of "everybody who’s got the right to vote".

Ah yez, the ├╝berwealthy showing off the poverty of their souls.

some people are so poor, all they have is money...
~ comment by Ben Maschal on TPM

A Romney donor's 'let them eat cake' moment. It's one thing to be rich - it's another thing to be a rich jerk.
~ Mark Lacter in LA Observed

Romney Donors Talk Like Living Stereotypes of the 1 Percent. . . . If you tried to invent propaganda for the soldiers of class warfare, it's doubtful you could do much better than that.
