... the Republicans I know are voting for Romney while HOLDING THEIR NOSES.
They dont' like him at all .. they don't have lawn signs out .. they don't have
bumper stickers .. they didn't get excited about the convention ... they simply
don't like the man but they are voting for him because he's 'less bad' than Obama.
I hate to break it to you .... well, that's not true ... I'm enjoying breaking it to you ...
"No one can say my plan is going to raise taxes on middle-income people, because principle number one is (to) keep the burden down on middle-income taxpayers," Romney told host George Stephanopoulos.
"Is $100,000 middle income?" Stephanopoulos asked.
"No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less," Romney responded.

In an interview airing on Good Morning America this morning, Romney was asked if the middle income of Americans is $100,000, to which re replied.."No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000".
Is this guy serious? Is he so out of touch that he really thinks that is what the middle or average income is in the country he wants to be leader of? In fact, the middle income is only around $50,000 but I guess when you are worth billions, the difference between 50 grand and 250 grand isn't that much.
Romney out of touch...AGAIN

Are you kidding me? You must have grown up in a high income family, I'd consider 100K to be real wealthy. If my mom was making at least $10,000 more a year, putting her in the upper $20K range on 3 people we'd barely make it, but at least make it. Right now we're not making it, and she's still pulling through.

Well that’s a new one.
How exactly was the interview a hit piece?
Please do explain.

To deny that 100k falls into middle income and then go on to say that middle income is 200-250k or less means that to Romney anything under the ~100k range is considered poverty, and anything about ~100k to 200-250k or less is considered middle class.
It doesn't matter how you slice it, this guy is out of touch.
I don't think there are a many "Have Nots" that will vote to protect the old tax cuts for the "Haves"
