The Wisdom of Mitt Romney

Oft times the words a man speaks are a window into his soul.
  • I'm running for office for Pete's sake, we can't have illegals.
  • Corporations are people, my friend.
  • I like being able to fire people.
  • I'm not concerned about the very poor.
  • I've always been a rodent and rabbit hunter.
  • I'm a normal person. I have emotions. (How many people do you know who feel its necessary to say that?)
  •  I get speakers fees from time to time but not very much. ($347,000 in speakers fees.)
  • Maybe I should tell my story. I'm also unemployed. (Except he's was paid $347,000 to talk. Sounds like a job to me.)
  • If you look at the literature or look at the dictionary, the term 'saw' includes being aware of in the sense I've described. I'm an English literature major as well. When we say I saw the Patriots win the World Series, it doesn't necessarily mean you were there -- excuse me, the Super Bowl. I saw my dad become president of American Motors. Did that mean you were there for the ceremony? No, its a figure of speech. (Romney explanation when he got caught lying about his father marching with Martin Luther King.)
  • Keep America American. (A Ku Klux Klan slogan.)

He's setting himself up for one hell of an ad montage in November.

They're going to be able to string those things together and make him look like Montgomery Burns.

I think it is freaking riotous to hear him say that he is planning on focusing on the "95% of Americans that are really struggling", not the "very poor"; then he says he want to focus on "middle income Americans". Then he says that the "very poor" have an "ample safety net". I don't think he has a clue who he wants to convince people he is going to "focus on". We have over 46 million Americans in poverty. Are any of those "middle income". Or are they the ones with the "ample safety net". I don't think he has a clue how little the "ample safety net", which is being repeatedly cut, actually provides, or what it is like to be one of those 46 million in poverty. For that matter, I don't think he has a clue what "middle income Americans" are experiencing. All he knows is that he is being taxed too much. And, of course, as a "job creator", with a pile of money overseas, that must be wrong. It is utterly stunning to me that anyone with an income lower than 7 figures thinks this guy would lift a single finger to help ordinary people.
