The event was held at the Boca Raton home of private equity manager Marc Leder, who has donated $225,000 to the pro-Romney super-PAC
So who else was on hand for Romney's "off the cuff" remarks at Leder's spread on May 17? According to the TC Palm, 150 people attended the $50,000-per-plate event.
American Motors Corporation chief executiveAs managing director of the Automobile Manufacturers Association, Romney became good friends with then-president George W. Mason. When Mason became chairman of the manufacturing firm Nash-Kelvinator in 1948, he invited Romney along "to learn the business from the ground up" as his roving assistant, and the new executive spent a year working in different parts of the company. At an inefficient Detroit refrigerator plant of the Kelvinator appliance division, Romney battled the Mechanics Educational Society of America union to institute a new industrial–labor relations program that forestalled the whole facility being shut down. He appealed to the workers by saying, "I am no college man. I've laid floors, I've done lathing. I've thinned beets and shocked wheat." As Mason's protégé, Romney assumed executive assignment for the development of the Rambler.

Agreed. The audience was what really made the story. THe fact that he talks that way to folks that have boatloads of money didnt sit well IMO. If he had been talking to lower income libertarians for free then he'd be Ron Paul. LOLedit on 19-9-2012 by Mike.Ockizard because: (no reason given)

Romney says he doesn't want to redistribute wealth like Obama, he wants to create wealth, I find it hard to believe he wants the wealth to go to middle and lower classes.
