The “HE” I am referring to is 2 time presidential loser, Mitt Romney. It seems that Mitt wants to make it a 3 time loser….for most of us that means jail.
After his screw up in 2012 he has taken a new tack….it seems that he will try to focus on poverty and its elimination………that is his theme (for me…a bit humorous)….at least for now.
- “Under President Obama, the rich have gotten richer, income inequality has gotten worse and there are more people in poverty than ever before.”
- “It’s a tragedy—a human tragedy—that the middle class in this country by and large doesn’t believe the future won’t be better than the past or their kids will have a brighter future of their own. People want to see rising wages and they deserve them.”
- “First, we have to make the world safer. Second, we have to make sure and provide opportunity for all Americans regardless of the neighborhood they live in. And finally, we have to lift people out of poverty.”
The Washington Post sees the emphasis on poverty and the middle class as “a dramatic departure from the themes he sounded in losing the 2012 campaign to President Obama.” Time writes that he “sought to cast himself as a champion of the nation’s poor.” So is he, in fact, running? Romney would say only that he’s giving it “serious consideration.” The New York Times, meanwhile, reports that wife Ann, who was once adamantly opposed to another run, seems to have come around to the “maybe” camp. “She knows where my heart is,” Romney told the crowd last night.
What could this man know about poverty? Does he have to choose between the power bill or food? No his big decision is which car will come out of the elevator today.
I am sick of politicians that get this condescending attitude and pretend to know what is it about to struggle daily….or to lessen his self to basically beg for assistance from an uncaring government. Or to watch his kids go to bed hunger or try and do homework in the dark.
It is sickening to hear that he has a plan to eliminate poverty……coming from a man that has NEVER known poverty. How can one formulate a solution without knowledge of the problem?
Anyone that believes this guy has a doable plan….IS AN IDIOT!
