VIDEO – Last week, Mitt Romney courted the ultra-wealthy at a mansion in the Hamptons. Here are some of the quotes from attendees including, “I don’t think the common person is getting it” and “I just think if you’re lower income – one, you’re not as educated, two, they don’t understand how it works, they don’t understand how they systems work…”
Yes, it seems the super-rich are frustrated that us “common folk” are not satisfied with the scraps we are given to fight over. They can’t understand why we don’t want to return to the policies of George W. Bush – policies that helped them tremendously and put our economy in the toilet.
But, they do have the means to help ol’ Mitt run a marathon of negative ads targeting the “common people” in swing states such as Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, Iowa, etc. If you live in one of those states, no doubt, you have seen Mitt Romney ads declaring he will make things better for the “middle class”.
What the hell does Mitt Romney know about the middle class? He and his financiers refer to us as “common people” that don’t understand anything. They feel that policy should be theirs to hand down to the rest of us because they know what is good for us. It sounds like they don’t even believe we should have the right to vote unless we have an Ivy League education. So, they are coming to the rescue of their tax cuts by donating $25,000 a head to fund propaganda to the “peasants” in places like Michigan and Nevada.
Also attending the Hamptons fundraiser were some ultra-rich who actually voted for Obama in 2008, but have since withdrawn their support when the President actually attempted (albeit mildly) to put some regulations on Wall Street and the banking sector after they tanked our economy under the deregulation Republicans gave them in the last decade. And President Obama wants to raise their taxes from 35% to 39.4%? Now they are mad and have found a new candidate, Mitt Romney, who will certainly be their puppet if he gets elected.
One of the most telling quotes did not make it into the video: “It’s not helping the economy to pit the people who are the engine of the economy against the people who rely on that engine,” Michael Zambrelli said to the LA Times. Yes, they believe that THEY are the engine of the economy and we “common people” rely on them.
