Mitt Romney made an appearance on CNN after his Florida win to tell Americans a secret – if you’re very poor, he’s “not concerned” about you.
Romney says, “I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs a repair, I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich…I’m concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling.”
O’Brien asked him to clarify his remarks saying, “There are lots of very poor Americans who are struggling who would say, ‘That sounds odd.'”
Romney continues, “We will hear from the Democrat party, the plight of the poor…. You can focus on the very poor, that’s not my focus…. The middle income Americans, they’re the folks that are really struggling right now and they need someone that can help get this economy going for them.”
Well, that’s a half truth.
Of course we all know the real truth about Mitt Romney and who he’ll represent if given the chance to be president. He’s a Republican, so naturally his main focus will not be the poor and it will not be the middle class. If he becomes president, expect Romney to do what every other Republican president in recent history has done – he will protect Corporations and the rich at the expense of the poor and middle class. And it doesn’t matter if you’re a Democrat, Republican or Independent. If Romney gets elected, then the class-warfare Republicans have been waging against the middle class for decades, will be the foundation of his presidency.
Romney may succeed in fooling the gullible, or those that will vote for him simply because they’ve decided to judge the current occupant of the White House based on the color of his skin and not the content of his character. But for the majority of Americans, the real Americans who put country ahead of party, we will vote for the real alternative, we will vote for the policies that are getting us out of this economic slump and not the ones that started the recession in the first place. We will vote for our future, we will vote for President Obama.
