Mitt Romney is apparently in hot water for not caring about the poor. That’s funny, I thought he gave a poor woman some cash recently. That’s better than I. I stiffed a panhandler who wanted some cash when I was at the ATM earlier today. Stop trying to explain or “contain” this Mitt, you were completely right. (Read)
If Romney suffers a significant drop of support because he told CNN that he’s not constantly worried about the poor, then we deserve Newt Gingrich or the re-election of an incumbent whose campaign is all about class envy, for falling for duck speak politics.
We need a president who will work to maintain a strong middle class and provide safety nets that help and assist the poor. In fact, my ideal candidate is one who will prescribe this preventative remedy for poverty. 1) Stay in school, 2) when you get a job, stay with it, and 3) don’t plan on having kids until marriage, 4) And once you’re married, stay true to your vows. I’m not even sure Romney is willing to make that advice a campaign theme, though.
