Mittsy had a big fundraiser in the Hampton's recently, at the home of conservative billionaire David Koch, who never met a political office he didn’t want to buy; and make no mistake, you Mittsy supporters out there, Koch has said he will buy the presidency and once these kinds of deals are made then you can forget about having any say at all in politics unless you have a monster bank account.
And a great deal of Mittsy’s base—those with huge bank accounts, those with huge bank accounts, like Mittsy, who pay a smaller percentage of their income in taxes than a school teacher pays, those with huge bank accounts who, like Mittsy, keep their money out of the country, in Swiss accounts and Cayman banks, rather than invest in their own country. Those with huge bank accounts who, like Mittsy, think $375,000 a year isn’t a lot of money.
Yeah, those people; the One Percent.
They came with high hopes for the GOP candidate; high hopes, some words of advice, and, well, not their names because……
One man, a “money manager,” said it was time for Romney to "up his game and be more reactive." He said Romney has been very “timid” so far. He also said, well, that was all he said because he wouldn’t give his name because he said it would hurt his business.
He supports Mittsy, but he doesn’t want to announce it. That’s real support people.
So was a woman who also would not give her name; she said Romney needed to do a better job connecting with, um, common people. Direct quote from nameless, faceless, lady with a full wallet, Romney supporter: "I don't think the common person is getting it."
Common. Schoolteacher paying more of their income in taxes than Mittsy common.
She goes on, blathering: "We've got the message, [but] my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies—everybody who's got the right to vote—they don't understand what's going on. 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 the systems work, they don't understand the impact."
Common folks are dumb. That’s Mittsy’ base. Remember when W made that lame ‘joke’ about the elite wealthy being his base? For Mittsy it is no joke.
See, to drive out to the Hamptons and rub shoulders with Mittsy costs a lot; and not just in the fat check you might write, but in how this country will change, better for the 1%, worse for the rest of us, if Mittsy takes office. Romney's luncheon with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor cost $25,000 per person. At the evening fundraiser at the Koch estate the suggested contribution was $75,000 per couple.
That’s a lot of money for common folk. And any way you look at it, we can’t afford it.
