Romney Gaffe: ‘Not concerned about the very poor’

In an interview with CNN, Mitt Romney said that he was “not concerned about the very poor.”

Hopefully this is all strategy on his part and not a major gaffe that the left will get the honor of taking out of context. Either way, this could be very damaging to the GOP’s front-runner. Class warfare is one thing the left loves.

For them to be able to use the line that Romney is not concerned about the poor is a slap in the face. Comparing the 1% donations of the Obamas to the +15% of the Romneys, it’s easy to see who gives more. But, then again, the very poor do have a ‘safety net’ as Mitt states.

Yes, the ‘safety net’ does have holes. However, Romney will certainly have to do a lot of explaining on this one. Which leads us to think that this is all strategy. Why? It brings up the welfare state questions to the table.
