Mitt Makes Himself a Target Again
“I like firing people.”
“I’m not concerned about the very poor.”
Both of them, if they’re stand-alones and taken out of context, are big problems — and they indicate a problem. Taken in context — which isn’t going to happen with the Drive-By Media. Taken in context, it’s understandable. But I even have a problem with this in context. “I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there.” The safety net is one of the biggest cultural problems we’ve got! We had better be worried about it just like we had better get angry over Obamacare. Obamacare is worth getting mad about. Mitt said that it wasn’t. This biz, “I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there”?
Right, the safety net is contributing to the destruction of their humanity and their futures! Everybody knows what he’s trying to say but he didn’t say it and he makes himself a target with this stuff. He comes across as the prototypical rich Republican. And it’s gonna make it harder and harder and harder and harder to go after Obama because this turns around on him. You know, all these Wizards of Smart in the Republican establishment say, “We can’t have Newt out there! Why, Newt’s gonna be the topic. We need Obama to be the topic. We need Obama to be the guy campaign’s about. If Newt’s out there, it’s only gonna be about Newt.” Well, what evidence is there that it’s not gonna be about Romney with these kinds of statements?
