Mitt Romney doesn't care about poor people part 2

#1Junon0256Posted 3/23/2012 9:12:11 AM
Anyone ever read Romney's book No Apology?


The first sentence of that book is "I hate weeding." In other words, he hates things that poor people tend to do, i.e. weeding, because they're not rich enough to hire laborers to do the weeding for them. By the psychological concept of association, Mitt Romney hates poor people because he hates weeding.


Further evidence that Mitt Romney hates poor people

In the above clip, political commentator Bill Maher compares Mitt Romney to famous rappers.


"When asked about wealth distribution and income inequality, Mitt said 'It's fine to talk about those things in quiet rooms.'" -Bill Maher


Mitt Romney doesn't like talking about income inequality because then he'll have to talk about poor people, whom he hates.


Also from his book No Apology:

"Tom and his team achieved success in the face of so many challenges..."

Romney views success as making lots of money, and only that. To Romney, success is not helping the poor, reforming public schools, or cleaning up the streets. To Romney, success is rigidly defined as: making money! Consider the following scenario:

Vice President Joe Biden: So Congress just passed legislation mandating more funds to black communities.

Obama: Success!



Hypothetical Vice President (Romney's V.P., if he gets elected): Congress just passed legislation mandating more funds to black communities.

Romney: What? How much money did we have to spend on that?



Again from No Apology:

"The Internet boomed, and the pockets of millions of average Americans grew deeper."

Compare that to the following statement: "The Internet boomed, and the pockets of millions of Americans grew deeper." Why did Mitt Romney have to put the word "average" in there?
