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.
