2. Since cheering for the middle class would conflict with every actual policy they have had - not a chance.

Remember how they tried to take credit for the rapidly improving economy, then rapidly backtracked to the usual pretending it is not when that trial ballon deflated on launch?

3. So let me understand this, Romney is now for the poor, and Obama and Clinton are for the rich. I

have great faith in the American people that they will conveniently forget about the 47%, and even greater faith in the Democrats that they will not remind them

Unless the plan includes abolishing the minimum wage, he'll never get the support of the far-rightwing GOP primary voters...

27. My thought too . Abolish any minimum wage ,unemployment,&disability aid, food stamps is there any thing

Else oh homeless shelters no aid maybe , break SSI? He has plenty of buddies looking for slave labor. Poverty solved cuz no povert y programs exist
Everyone working for near free whether elderly,blind sick& most likely children too.
Yep that's how you end child poverty and make sure they have table scraps . Put them to work

5. GOP War on Poverty = War on the Poor = Eliminate Poverty by Eliminating the 47%. Nothing new.

He's as helpful to the poor as the Cruz plan of cutting off all assistance, earned or not, to restore Sinners' wealth to those are rich, because they believe they are The Righteous.

Put everything they say through that lens to decipher every single word out of the GOP/ Koch/ Teapublican mouths. They are consistent. Raphael Cruz was open about it. His son Ted enjoyed taunting us.

Face up to it, they want most of us gone in the worst possible way. It's also the GOP plan to save the environment. For them the last frontier is genocide.

No, I don't like them.

22. I thought you were going for "A Modest Proposal"--eat the poor.

From Wikipedia: "A Modest Proposal for Preventing the Children of Poor People From Being a Burthen to Their Parents or Country, and for Making Them Beneficial to the Publick,[1] commonly referred to as A Modest Proposal, is a Juvenalian satirical essay written and published anonymously by Jonathan Swift in 1729. Swift suggests that the impoverished Irish might ease their economic troubles by selling their children as food for rich gentlemen and ladies.[2] This satirical hyperbole mocks heartless attitudes towards the poor, as well as Irish policy in general."

If poor people sell their children to the wealthy for the purposes of fine dining, it fights poverty in two ways: It reduces the number of poor children through ingestion, and provides a source of income for their parents. Of course, some poor people may try to game the system by irresponsibly birthing excess offspring. This must be carefully controlled since there are only so many different sauces one can serve with bébés de la pauvreté, and the wealthy do have a tendency to grow bored with fashionable delicacies over time. Michelin starred restaurants must update their menus from time to time.

9. Stupid 1%er

Does he think anyone is so stupid that they will fall for the obvious lying ploy, especially when the cure is the same methods that he was suggesting last time - nothing whatsoever has changed - except the description. He hates the working class, except as a source of profit from cashing out their jobs into profits for him and BK for the co. Back to my first sentence, no new voters will be persuaded by his lies that didn't buy into them the last time around. If you ice a bowling bowl, it's still non-edible and still can't be called a cake.

16. Anyone remember his election night celebration? (here's a reminder)...

I believe it's a also look into what his White House occupation would have looked like.
This kind of attitude doesn't change in 3 years. He's a freakish, lying ass who will do/say anything to get that job.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/dana-milbank-at-romney-headquarters-the-defeat-of-the-1-percent/2012/11/07/857d00f6-284a-11e2-96b6-8e6a7524553f_story.html


It was a victory party fit for the 1 percent.

Over in Chicago, the Obama campaign had invited 10,000 to fill the floor of the McCormick Place convention center. But here in Boston, Mitt Romney favored a more genteel soiree for an exclusive crowd.

Romney’s election-night event was in a ballroom at the Boston Exhibition and Convention Center that could accommodate a few hundred. Most men wore jacket and tie; women donned dresses and heels. Secret Service agents blocked reporters from mixing with the Romney supporters as they sipped cocktails and nibbled canapes.

Outside the ballroom, waiters in black tie tended bar, and Jumbotrons showed the election results on Fox News. Downstairs, Romney’s big donors assembled in private rooms for finer fare; guards admitted only those whose credentials said “National Finance Committee.”

“We’re going to have a great celebration here tonight,” Romney adviser Ed Gillespie told the crowd as early results trickled in.

As more people are emptied out of their houses and end up on the street, they can start setting up ways to put them into those "Fema" Camps we keep hearing about. Bleh, Republicans, they really stink up the place.

splitting the left wing.
At first I thought he/they were trying to get the low income voters behind him, but I now think he's (or probably the Koch's) are creating ripples on the left.

Because as a left-winger myself, I know I'm torn between the angry "revenge" politics of Bernie Sanders and the more hopeful approach offered by Mitt Romney.

Of course, if Mitt thought that Americans would vote for him if he liked skunks, he'd start wearing skunkskin coats, and suits with skunkskin-lined collars!!!

Peee-eeewwww!!!

Mitt stinks enough as it is!!
