Willard had a fundraiser in the Hamptons…
A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. “I don’t think the common person is getting it,” she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.
“We’ve got the message,” she added. “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.”
OK, some rich lady called us “commoners” and said rather bluntly that we are stupid. But I think that the real money quote (sorry about that) is “Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.” I guess we are too dumb to even know that.
I know that she doesn’t speak for Mitt Romney, but the point is: Mitt speaks for her. These are the people that are hiring him.
Maybe if Rmoney talks LOUDER & SLOWER…the ‘common people’ might be able to grasp a little bit…but alas, they will just never ‘understand’.
FU lady & the money that you rode in on!
Working on a college campus for twenty years, I’ve found that educated only very occasionally equals s-m-r-t. The so-called rubes know the system’s a ruse.
It’s funny, I thought of this same Frank & Bing duet when I first heard that quote. At least when rich folks back then bitched about their taxes, the top rate was 90%.
